    I wouldn't go high tech. 3 years ago I welded two ears inside my Deere skid steer had longer hoses made up to reach the boom and went to work. Had an old 8' fisher that had been sitting in the yard for years and with 100.00 turned it into a work horse. Another benefit is if you hit a manhole, the plow will still jump up in the air, its not just the trip edge taking all the force. I thought I would have to replace the ears every season, but each fall all I have to do straighten them out with a hammer. Just be sure not to put them too deep into the bucket (allow room for the plow to angle). Talk about a fast angle, its faster than my windshield wipers.

    I will take some pics of our setup tomorrow and post them. We had a plate welded up that the plow mounts too.

    I just took a washer and welded it shut and drilled a small hole in it.
