    Arctic 10 foot Extra HD poly, 2005 International 4200

    I am in the middle of installing a Arctic Extra HD 10 foot poly snow plow on a 2005 International 4200 dump truck.
    All steel is galvanized with 3/8" thick poly.
    Plow has eight vertical ribs that are a mix of 3/8" and 1/2" thick.
    Six trip springs, double lift chains.
    2" swing and lift cylinders
    Massive HD quadrant assembly.

    OK, onto the truck end of this thing.
    The HD mount kit for larger vehicles is a generic mounting kit which needs fabricating up.
    This in takes some welding and cutting, so this means the mount kit comes in rawl metal for fabrication and will need to be painted.
    Tomorrow I will get into more pictures of the mount being fabbed and installed along with the wiring and controls being installed.

    We cut a template from cardboard and transfered it to some 1/16" plate.
    This is our pattern for our pattern cutting torch.
    Now we will have the pattern made for future Internationals.
    Here are some pictures of the parts being cut.

    Reinstall front bumper.
    When plow is removed all you will see is the crossbox under the bumper.
