after looking all summer for one i was loosing hope unless i wanted travel over 200 miles for one but i found a deal 30 miles from home trying to just buy the plow itself ....wasn't happining i told him what i had to spend got for half  the price so i did the deal came with 36" rear mowing deck too then he had to get the plow from behind the shed and was lugging out a true A frame plow which was exactly what i needed and only thing didn't get was the angle rod so looked around on ebay found a couple and saw $60.00.. wasn't happining so i called my local steel shop up the road had one made for $21.00....that was more like it i thought....anyways here it is see what you think?

Looks fine, Horse plows are one of easiest to use and mount I've ever had. Tractors always pushed good too, even at times w/out chains. Those big wheels may not need much to be able to push. Chains be good idea tho, might have to get truck chains with the big tires.

Nice snow mover there. Those 15" tires work so much better than the 12" tires. Very solid machines they were.

I have "built" a couple of angling rods as well as the left/right/center lever. Fairly easy if you know what length is needed.

My uncle has a GT14 and that thing pushes like a small dozer. While I'm a JD fan, I must say that old girl is one of the stoutest built GT's I've seen.

I have used my WH GT-14 for snow plowing for several years. It is a beast! The only problem I have had is the plow frame hits the steering components making it difficult to turn with the plow up.
