Pics of homemade snowplows...?

Hello!

Anyone here who has built his own snowplow?

If so....I would like to see pics of it.

I´m most interested of the "tilt mechanism" on the backside of the plow.

Tilt are you referring to where the A frame angles the blade.

Find a big peice of pipe 5'+ (at a scrapyard)if possible but not likely, i think maybe as long as it is a pull plow that don't angle you might have better luck finding a corigated culvert, but the one in the pic's looks almost profesional i would say it was done by a prof. fab shop because the angle is curved also?

The steel "Blade" is 3mm thick......a bit heavy i think, 2mm should work fine too, and would be 10kg lighter.

Angle irons are 30x3mm

I will use the plow on my Russian Lada Niva (see link below) :-)

Great job so far Larzaon. I was wondering the samething as super crew about a replaceable cutting edge. What about a lift mechinisem? Nice looking rig too.

Are those Honda XR's on the trailer?

Yes, i will put a replaceble cutting edge on the plow.

About the lifting mechanism it is not clear how it will look yet......it will not be hydraulic from the beginning, but you newer know if i make it so later on.

And yes.....those are XR´s on the trailer...at least two of them.
The third one is my neighbors Yamaha TT600

Right now i am rebuilding a 5 speed gearbox for my Niva, only have 4 gears now.

And yesterday i started to rebuild ny new (bigger) engine.......

Hello Boyz!

Not much has happened with my snowplow for about a year...... :-/

The first bracket for the car that i made did not turn out good...so i have made a new one recently and i think it´s much better.On this new one the plow is fastened directly below the front bumper.

Some pics from when im building.....









I have "spot welded" everything toghether just so i can put the plow infront of the car to see if anything has to be altered...and i think maybe the plow could be more close to the car.

Does anybody know how much the plow needs to be able to "tilt" (sideways) to be effective ?

If it dont have to "tilt" so much i can shorten the space between the plow and the car........and everything will be stronger (i think?)

I think (hope) the mount that i have already done will be strong enought..........and the plan is to use a small ATV winch to lift the plow. I have already bought it....

Later maybe i will convert to a hydraulics system............

Does anybody know how much "angle" (in degrees) the plow need to have to be effective?
