    Many have seen the first blade I built, well built another! This not for me its for a friend. It will go on a 4x4 F450 7.3TD. It started it life as a C8. It sits at 10 foot 10 inch before the pro wings! With pro wings it sits 12 foot 2 inch!

    Thanks. It takes a few days to complete one. My friend that I made it for came up with a name for my blades, but i hope no one gets all pissy about the name. I think you guys will get a kick out of it.

    Looks like quite the beast. My dad back in 1978 took an 8ft Meyer's and welded a foot on each side and would run that in lighter storms. Everyone thought he was crazy. LOL

    Thanks Steve! I was happy to see snow on the trucks friday morning but still a teaser. It will be a while down here, surface ground temp in the mid 50's.

    Very nice plow. It looks like you bought it and it's not home made. You did a great job on it.

    That's an awesome way to mount pro wings.

    I've got bolt and pin holes in my plows.

    That thing is a scoopin machine...better get a cutting edge on that.
