    You'll get more help from some other guys chiming in. But it looks like an old Meyer to me.

    Looks like some cobbled together contraption to me. Blade looks like Meyer, Rams appear to be Meyer, no idea on pump, not sure how lift works since it appears to be setup for direct lift but there is a chain also. Maybe some better pics of lift frame will help, any name or part # on pump?

    God I miss that guy...


    I agree with Kimber. It looks to be a Hillbilly Deluxe model 499

    Bird is someone that used to be on here and was always trying to cobble something together. One of the last things I remember him trying to do is put down pressure on a chain lift plow.

    I see, bit of snipe hunting. OK, guess I'll have to keep looking and listening.
    PS was Birdseed from Connecticut?

    Maybe Bird is mass producing his fine work and shipping globally now...:confused:
