    4 inches seems like nothing compared to the 2 feet we got last week.

    We've gotten so little snow in Milwaukee, 4 inches would be a blessing!! I can't believe I've only been out twice the entire season!

    I think you need a better cutting edge.

    It's gravel. Don't want it in the yard. Actually that part is part of the yard. Well grass grows there it's half gravel. They use it for parking and turning around when backing out of the garage.
    djh, I sympathize. I'd trade the snow we are getting for some green grass if you want to work something out email me ;) :D

    It may be gravel, However the bottom line isn't cleaning to the surface very well. I will honestly say the plow needs to be stiffined up, forget the v-plow, make it a straight blade that angles, make the mount stronger, and but a better edge on it. You will not be able to make a v-plow for that mower strong enough to perform well enough to work outside of your own door yard. Let alone trying to take 10" of wet heavy snow.

    I think you need to get a Valkie for that thing too..LOL

    Did a walk behind that we pulled the deck off for the winter and attached the blade. Customer also has a quick mount for a wheelbarrel attachment. Got rid of the deck weight and shortend the thing up for turning and loading.

    Thanks for the picts. Hope you get some more snow.

    Geoff, figured out my problem is (well already knew just was avoiding it) is that the rubber edge isn't stiff enough or I just left too much sticking down so it just fold under the plow and makes it ride up over alot of areas. So I will either:
    A. make only a little stick below the blade
    B. put on a stiffer rubber/plastic edge (using semi truck mud flaps)
    C. Just take off the rubber edge and run bare steel

    Problem with C is that I don't wanna damage my drive or anyone else's and it won't flex over bumps well or at all that way. The frame is plenty strong I could run it into a tree if i wanted. I switched the plow to my Wheel Horse because it has lugs which in dry snow the Scag is faster but anything wet or drifted and I need the Wheel Horse. It has quick mount to either one now so I have an option.
    Jerry I do have a sulky can't see it well. thanks, we did get more this am!!!

    DJH - I feel your pain, wish we had 4" to plow too! Have not plowed over 2 1/2" all season! Heck I would take 1", then I can contribute to the snow piles thread.

    It works great thank you. Today I had the pleasure to use a Bob Cat 773 skid steer with a bucket to remove 6" of snow in a parking lot. It was interesting but would be much more effective and effecient with a blade.

    I don't know but it says something about me that they do now huh? Bet no one has loaned you anything worth more than a couple hundred dollars lol btw, not to get off topic here but what is your problem all of a sudden? I get the snow cleared whats your problem? It's not a brand new loaded plowtruck pimped out but it's not a clunker rust bucket that wakes up the whole dang neighborhood either (gee now who do I know with one of those?!?)
    :rolleyes:
