    Option 1
    The upper righthand corner of this web page is a search feature, maybe you should try using it.
    Option 2
    Google
    Option3
    Test your welding/fabbing skills and build a set

    Perseverance is the starting point of many great feats........ Did the US give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941? I don't think so.:nono:

    Well. searched and searched. nobody makes any that go to a 90 degree angle to the plow, only 45 degrees like pro wings.

    maybe i can find someone that can unbend mine.

    There use to be a welding/truck repair snow plow service place on Kalamazoo Ave. I believe it was near or around Edwards or Rose st intersections. Can't remember exactly as it has been years but you could take anything in there and they would fix and or modify it exactly how you want it right down to how much you wanted it to weigh. Can't remember the name of the place for the life of me but can see it in my head.
    If they are closed find a local welder fab shop and if they can not repair yours then have them fab some according to what you draw up.

    There are plenty of people that can make new ones. I could make new ones. its nothign more than a bent piece of steel with square tube welded to it. I just do not want to pay 500 bucks. meyer makes a set that looks good, but again. 500 bucks.

    ill just pay a guy with a shop to straighten mine. wouldnt be hard with a torch and something flat to put it against.

    I'm failing to understand, why won't you invest in your stuff. The more you nickel and dime yourself, the more it cost you.

    You seem to have the tools to do the repairs, do you not have the nuts or the technology to repair a simple piece of steel?

    I did buy a torch, or i should say bottles, not sure if i trust the regulator that seemed to have the knob pushed into it. but the main problem is when i heat it up i do not really have anything flat or anvil like to flaten it against.

    I am buying a brand new snowdogg plow, even paying to have it installed. Bought a tractor with a plow, + 96 bucks worth of parts for the plow. still need bolts. I'm looking for a plow i can attach to my zero turn. Buying a salt spreader. tho i wonder if ill actually need that.

    i cant spend too much. as it is now i'm having to get a job to get msyelf through winter.

    I would say yeah buy the snowdogg and do not weld anything to it.. and those bottles of gas are not gonna bend metal, you need a acetalyne torch..
    Yes i already know your box exstensions are the best thing since sliced bread, but i would leave your new one how it came.
