    When it grows up it wants to be a blizzard plow. i tried to paint it white(primer) but he wanted it yellow. One of my blizzard plows got a new coat of white.

    pic of it all done. It did come back to get shoes added. On the JD the arms come down below the level of the tractor and we were afraid the arms would drag on the ground if the plow was not keep level. Now with the shoes added that cann't happen one per side

    I now have 2 other plows in the shop looking to get the same mods to them. Wings are big everyone seems impressed at the final product. Now we need some snow to try it out.

    It's interesting how you built the wings without adding a lot of extra width to the plow. Easy to make them stronger that way. How much did it actually add to the length overall?

    The plow is now 8' i added 3" per side. That way you still have steel edge behind the rubber wing edges. This is not the first one i have done like this. I made an 8' into 9'2" but i didn't like not having full steel edge behind the rubber.

    The goal was not to make it much bigger just to add wings to help carry snow. They were using a very large 10' pusher on the tractor with very poor results. This should help them pick up productity

    Update on the project. After 5 storms the plow had major damage do to a manhole cover high speed impact. The quick attach plale was twisted almost 1.25" from side to side top to bottom. The A frame was also damaged. Heres the repair and upgraded mount.
