    well. if i keep working at it ill eventually be able to get a decent plow.

    but, then again. my 2004 $16k dodge lasted one week before it was completely broke down.

    the mount for the left ram broke off.

    when it wouldn't angel back straight i figured i was just low on oil or something, shrugs.

    today i saw the ram hanging way off the plow. it wont be a hard one to fix. but i have to get the welder out in the cold again.

    considering how old this plow is it really is expected to brake alot. i only paid $500 bucks for it. there isnt really much left on it that can brake. ill just have to sand it reweld it and move on.

    Thats the problem with older equipment, things break more often. If you dont know the previous owner, you have no idea how many times they plowed a curb doing 45MPH

    I refurbished an old 6' Meyer blade a few years ago. Every single weld was sketchy and they were all factory welds. Practice makes perfect.
