    94" snowbear

    hey dune. easy extention job if you have torchs and a welder. i took a peice of cardboard and traced the reinforcment at the end of my plow. cut the cardboard tracing out. transfered that to a piece of 4" wide,3/16" thick flat stock steel. measure the length,i cant remember it. transfer the shape of the cut out cardboard onto the steel and start cutting and grinding. those are your new ends. you'll need two,one for each end. get you a couple of feet of 2by2 angle iron, the same thickness, and cut 4 pieces of 6" each. those are your extentions to the frame. you weld them to the end to extend the existing angle iron. weld the pieces you cut earlier to the ends of your frame extentions. moldboard is just two pieces of 6' wide by 24' long ,1/8'thick sheet metal. start the instalation of the moldboard at the bottom. just match it even with bottom of the existing moldboard. i just bent it to match the curve of the plow. tack welding as i went. heat the top to bend it to match whats there. see,not to bad actually. alittle time but nothing to bad. not to much of a SB mentor, just dont mind working on it to fit my likeing. i'll have to check but i think one of those pics i took earlier shows the back of the extention. really not much to see,just matched what was there. take care and good luck.

    You have the winch or the actuator? I think with the actuator being even better then the winch there a defininte good homeowner plow.

    I found the winch type to be better because it goes up higher.
    I got the the actuator type and the blade only goes up a foot and a half off the ground. I had to add two 1 and ahalf inch pipe to rase it high enough.
