    Hey everyone..i got tired of buying new plow markers for 30 dollars that everytime it got cole they cracked or those garbage antenna type ones...so iam a handyman and have tons of stuff around .so i came up with an idea...who knows im sure others thought of this..im laid off and looking to keep busy and maybe make some extra money while iam waiting for the snow to fly...
    iam selling these homemade plow markers for a plow...3/8 threaded stud at bottom..with 3/8 rode inside..flexable but will not break at all..
    nothing special to it..heres my prices hey if you want them just call me 203-906-0103 i will flat rate ship. should be between 5 and 8 dollars
    24" $20
    36" $30
    48" $40
    i think my prices are fair..i garuntee these will last ive had mine on my plow for 3 years and made a bunch for friend for plows,sanders ...if your plow takes a threaded type then this is for you feel free to call or text...hope everyone doesnt think im nuts..but these things are sturdy..sorry my pictures look bad but my phones in rough shape

    Once mounted on the plow can you grab them and bend them over and they stand back up

    well they do flex and go back..once i bent pretty bad and i straightened out..because there is rods going thru..takes ALOT TO BEND TO POINT OF HAVING TO MANUALLY BEND...

    they are somewhat flexable to answer your ?....like i said worse case you manually bend back..they are pretty heavy duty tho..i havent had to replace mine yet.and even tho its simple design...people around me love them

    There times I put my plows under semi trailers So I don't think your Idea will work for me
    Plus there times with my V plows I'll move piles back Your markers will just bend over since there no flex.

    Those might be ok on guys that plow roads

    Have you ever bought the Plow markers that has cable inside. They are the best and the cheapest I bought 3 sets this year I paid $17 each per set for them They will take a beating like no other markers can last forever.

    I replace ones on my 2003 pro plus plow I didn't have to but my son said they was so faded they was hard to see

    I put set on my new wings that goes on my MVP

    Maybe add a short length of spring on the bottom.

    More power to you but if you're tired of $30 plow markers and yours are cheaper why will I spend $20-$40 + shipping?? I know you need the money, but so does Boss, otherwise they might get bought by someone like Toro....



    ....Doh!

    Wire cable as support or you are jut wasting dollars. This is a wheel that really doesn't need re invented.
