    I need look how they mount to frame.

    My school's tractor are different style so it pita to find another tractors like my.

    I know I want snoway plow on this but my budget not allow due no job but hope get job at school next month.


    And what thick mount should be? i don't want drive 5-10 mph sudden plow ready to trip but it couldn't trip because mount are weak so it end bent.

    Is 1/2" steel is good enough? Is C channel heavy duty won't bent until you go 25 mph hit snowpile.

    I am think make front mount hook to near front axle I know that look not strong for plow but I am think make 2 another mounts that should be tougher. 1 mount to 2 screws you see that how they mount I saw but it look weak design and 1 mount to those hitch you see look to be tougher.

    I will try make draw mount so you will understand.

    Here pic of tractor mount.

    is there any holes on the front axel? i have a couple old fords and they have a brush guard on the front with a hitch (from ford) so im sure it would be strong enough if you mounted it in those same holes. ill see if i have any pics

    I don't think it good because axle have pivot so if tire hit hole pile then snowplow will dig maybe get stuck.

    I thought it would be good until I drove in bad road near my old grandma house. I realized it not work why if plow sit on flat but tires maybe hit rock or hole then plow need to be copy level from axle so it end stuck in ground until you raise plow off ground then get on again.


    I found this pic. It exact what I have but problem I don't see those much due rust. I know one tractor dealer have one but it worst thatn you think. It seem po drive at 15 mph hit stuff so hard. I see mount are bent, plow are not straight it bent I think hit tree, and it look weak mount for me.

    That why I don't want buy plus I think make our mount will be heavy duty than this one I see at dealer.

    well what you could do is mount brackets to the rear axel using the holes where the fenders areand make you plow frame hook up to that. it is plenty strong and That is how one of are buckets hooks up.

    I don't know but i look at it but they are too high so we will need fab to make mount fit but feel that mount would bent because it need straight not like bent to fit mount.


    I will have welder look at and tell me what best to mount it.

    Yes that what i see at dealer. I say that wire they use steel but one thing that po is cheap keep reused this with patch on it.

    Can you get pic of that mount? How much snow it can push until traction run out.

    Why you won't use in snow? plow not good or no power angle that you need walk to angle it?

    Back up untill 10 years ago all our harness's hung off the front axles and then we just ran tubing back to the draw bar and bolted it on where you would hitch an implement. Never had any problems with the axle pivot and we ran them that way for over 15 years.

    I would make a frame that comes off the back part of the frame somehow. maybe hook it up like an atv plow. But it will be more heavy duty. But like someone already said tie it in to where the fenders meet the axle. thats what I think. you could go onto tractorbynet.com that is a tractor forum and they are abunch of help. they have a customization part too.

    TBYN won't allow me register there. they know me from another forums.


    That seem lot steel since they are not cheap now. I can do is make small mount.

    Basher sent me pic in pm. It Kubota with that mount. i swear that mount look very heavy duty than anyone I have see.

    I am not sure if Basher allow me post his pic if he want post here with his pic I be glad.


    I been look at tractor today when Basher sent me pic so I went to look and I think it little different style but my uncle's brother who is profession welder would know what best to mount. I hope steel he get is cheap than one from store. If I buy one from store it be cost nearby $150.


    I will get pic when He make mount and weld it. I hope use this tractor before winter.

    One thing it would be great if someone saw me and need that tractor because they have tight area. I know our City use tractors to plow sidewalk that are almost 5 feet but I notice tractor they use is too small with huge plow plus it go slow like 3 mph.

    My old tractor/loader a kubota b6000 4/wd. it was a 2cyl diesel 13hp and it did good. I plowed the drive a couple times just for the hell of it. and I moved banks infront of my house and my account down the street. but I sold that and bought an international 3414 backhoe/loader. I am thinking about putting a 8ft plow on the front of mine. so I can remove the bucket and put the blade on the loader. but what I will do will be easier then what you will have to go thru.

    That true but problem you need manage to make sure plow not much pressure down from loader or it be dig ground.

    Most I know they use float on loader so they plow no problem.

    That must be great to have.

    My Uncle used to have Massey he sold because it 2wd and alway get stuck in mud or deep snow. He got New Holland with 4x4 he love it.

    That look stout tractor but do you have electric block to keep engine warm in winter? Or it be hard to start.

    nah its got a heated block and it also has glow plugs. it is a international industrial. I paid $3000 for it. it was sitting in a barn for 3 years. so I approached the guy and said do you want to sell that? he said ya. but he said you have to get it running. it is diesel so me and a friend go there. turn the key on nothing. so I pull around hook the jump it too it. didnt have enough juice to turn it over fast enough. so I got the jumper cables out of bed of truck I brought. hooked the jumpers to the starter and jumpit to the battery. started right up with either. so I pulled it out of shed all the tires still had air in them. i was like wow. so we let it run. I was talking to the guy and he says how the engine has a little less then 100 hours on a rebuilt engine i was like wow. and it has a brand new clutch put in it. brakes were done like 10 years ago he said. He wanted $4000 so being a good barterer I said $3000 he said $4000 I said $3000 he said sold. so we were both happy. everything works on it tho and runs excellent. 4cyl perkins diesel and it runs great couldnt ask to run better. most of the tractor is leakless. I have to repack a couple rams on the backhoe but that is no biggie. I am going to bring it home from my camp in a couple weeks and i am going to take the back off. put that in one side of the garage and tractor in other. and I am going to repaint and service everything. I am going to restore it. So that is my winter project! I want it to look clean and new like your ford.

    Keep in mind my Ford leak lot fluid and it not pretty.

    It look ok and paint is fade.

    What cause leak. Owner didn't tight bolt correct and alway sit all time never drove until I start beg him then decide give up so we fix now it run.

    Then my mom's ******* cousin who demand this but lucky my mom is control will for my great grandma so we lucky got this.

    I was surprise how bad. Now it run but lucky oil pressure still hold 45 psi at idle I use 5w30.


    I talk to my friend who can get scrap steel he say he will look for steel like basher's tractor with homemade snowplow mount.

    cool. i wish i knew someone who could get scrap steel for me. but mostly leaks are from sitting for periods of time or o-rings go or rams need rebuilds. but the biggest one is hoss leak.
