    Well we are building our first of a few 5000 series blades here in the shop. These will use a 24 volt diverter valve for use on our 521E Case loaders. Hope you enjoy the buildup. This is not a snow wing but with pop up end plates so you have either a power angel blade or containment plow. These work really well on a loader.

    So Doug, you guys are making these in your shop? I assume so as they look a little different than the Horst style I saw here. If that's the case, kudos on a wonderful job.:salute: You have some talented people working with you.

    Not sure if you need another one but I have a 5000 series 16ft that has only plowed 2 winters and it's like brand new. I've never even flipped the cutting edge yet that I'd sell for 6.5k. It has Global quick tach though.

    why are they pop up wings to containment and not side wings to containment? too wide?
    do you have any step by step sort of pics?

    Yes it is, if you notice the wings are spring loaded and that lets you push flush to a curb or allows the end plate to spring back back if you hit anything.

    Yep all the parts are made by Horst and we are just assembling the units in our shop. It is a little bit tricky because of the 24 volt system plus we like to do this type of work on our own so we can trouble shoot problems in the future. In this application we didn't want to have a plow with fold back wings. We wanted a plow that would work as a reversable for smaller areas and for winging snow in driveways as well as the blade be able to close down for containment in open areas and work like a power angle snow pusher for around islands and wide open spaces.

    Dave sounds like a nice plow. What is the hook up/m,ount for it? 12 volt or 24 valve or is mechanical for a tractor?

    BTW sorry we didn't get back to you a few days ago as we have been a little busy but after some thought we are going to pass on the rear blade idea (although thanks for asking us to have a look). We are probably going to liquidate the last of our agricultural tractor fleet next summer and therfore futher investment makes no sense.

    I will have some more pics in a day or two.

    It's setup for an agricultural tractor. No problem Doug I knew you were busy and have heard through the grapevine the farm tractors havn't stood up that well for you.

    Thanks we hope they make money too. If we can eliminate a secondary unit and do the whole job with one then it will be well worth it. tymusic

    Thanks Doug because of your thread I sold my blade to a guy in Mn. The valve for a 24 volt loader was only $750 so that sealed the deal.:drinkup:

    Hey that is great. I am so glad it worked out for you. Glad I could help. Your blade was a good deal but it was just a little big for us in the smaller areas where we want to use these blades. So how much commmission do I get?? LOL!!! :laughing:

    How about a beer sometime?
