    Thanks for looking I will get some more pictures as the ones above are from before I painted it and did all the hydraulic lines and Valves. This will be going in a parking garage this storm didnt produce much so it was just salted off.

    The plow came out great NEUSWEDE. I bet it will work wicked good. Do you think you will put wings on it or leave it as it is?

    Have thought about wings but the only reason I went with a blade as opposed to a box is based on how the area is laid out. Tough to do it with a box where as I need to be able to angle and get around things. kage was on my mind but need to have one year under my belt and make sure I will have it again before spending the money.

    That's cool. The down pressure will certainly come in handy.. It seems to do a great job

    Throw some wings on there(unless you are paid by the hour...:D) and you are set. Paint it up on the offseason and you will be good for a long time.

    Yea I am thinking about the same wings as you have but want to get atleast one storm under my belt before doing that. I put a quick paint job on this year to make it smooth. in the summer I will cut out and fix the cancer and have it sand blasted and painted so it will be just like new.

    I have a mint 9 foot blade if you want to replace rather than repair.

    I like that you're using a fisher but why wouldn't you just use the float on the Skidsteer? Just wondering not saying there's anything wrong with the way you're using it.

    That was my intention to have it like that when I started building it but I talked to a few others that were doing the same and they were having problems and having to fix theirs every year so I figured float with a chain wouldn't hurt and I don't mind it.
