    Thats one of the nicest plow to pusher conversions i've seen. Definately looks like a trip edge Crete.

    Doesnt look like a trip edge plow From what I see the side is welded to the cutting edge area

    It is a trip edge plow,the sides are not welded to the edge.And p/a has been deleted by puting angle iron clips welded in to stop the angle .It could be brought back to p/a if wanted quite easily.

    That pusher brings back a lot of memories as it looks exactly like the first pusher my dad made about 25 years ago from an old Frink trip edge blade. Wouldn't it have been better to run that angle from the top of the blade on a 45 degree angle down to near the tip of the wing? It would seem that would offer more strength along with the piece you added.

    Maybe but alot of the area is already braced with the pipe and the gusset on the inside i think will do just fine.
