    Ok newcomer here, been reading through some of the posts but ive been wondering there isnt many companies that ive seen that sell back blades. Was wondering if anyone has any templates to build one??? want to build a single cylinder 2 way pump system going to mount it to a steel bumper. first plow truck ive had but my buddy owns a plowin company and hes the one who suggested i just build one im pretty good at fabricating. any suggestions or templates would be awsome :)

    WOW, your here in GR and cant find anyone that builds a back blade here?

    Try B&B truck equipment, Ebling and Sons, Allied Truck Equipment carries the Snowman and this guy still had a Daniels for sale when i talked to him last week http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=63247.

    It will probably be cheaper to buy a used one than to build one IMO

    cheapest he has is that 1900 thats way out of budget, i could get a $300 rebuilt pump w/ warranty, $75 cylinder, $150 worth of hose and rest is just metal to weld together. lookin at around a grand max, just need some teplates or dimension to go on

    :eek: :laughing:

    Why don't you just drive over and ask them then? Never mind all the work, testing, designing, etc, etc they've put into building their own.

    Next, I bet you can build a front blade cheaper than DD or Meyer or SnoWay can make one, just build your own.

    Listen to him, he knows whereof he speaks.

    Or don't, it's your money.

    You already have all the answers, why are you asking questions on how to build it?

    I'll give you a hint, it's not as easy or simple as it looks.

    PS Just saw the original date on this thread. Too bad I missed it when he first posted, oh well, the answers still work.

    Hey, at least it didn't get deleted.

    And even if I was a little late to the party, it was a good reply, wasn't it?
