What kind of vechicle is that, and what type of plow. I really would like to use an SUV to plow with.

Sucks when you think you just made some good money plowing then that happens. $1900 sounds kinda high for that.

Here's my oops, caught a curb with the blade up :crying:
just found out this afternoon when I took the plow off. called around and is looking like $660 for a new headgear. Nearly sheared the pins and get this, I plowed another ten hours without even knowing.

fregy just run down to the local weld shop thats a easy fix should be under a hundred to fix. A cutting wheel and a piece of 2" angle should repair that.

It's more then just the angle iron, the chanel in front of the channel is slightly bentup, also nearly all the welds connected or near the anle are broke, the pin mounts for the A are also bent and broke.

What in the world did ya hit that had to rock the truck? Ok all stuff made can be fixed but meyers uses some odd sizes so your going to need some time and fab to fix this. One of my subs trashed his stuff also so the quick fix is to buy replacement parts.

hit the corner of a curb in an unplowed parking lot that I went through. blad was up and it missed everthing but the channel and the angle iron, all this from a hit at 10 mph, seems like it shouldn't have been that bad
by the way it's a fisher

sorry about that ok fisher ok sounds like you got a replacement price and parts but 600 bucks is alot of welding

Gotta watch for those curbs. I learned my lesson last week doing a lot. Had the plow staight cleaning up around an island and I didn;t realize that it's in a boot shape so I hit the curb about 5-10mph. Well let's just say after that one side of the v-plow was scraping and the other hung about 3" off the ground. :crying: I was suprisewd the airbags didn't go off. Needed a new A-Frame and center pin. Sorry Boss:(
