    Has any one mounted a olld Western Snow Plow to a skid steer. The plow I have was made probably in the early 80's and has just been setting around. The plow it self is in excellent shape and the hydlalics appear to be in good condition. Would appricate any advise anyone has. And if there is a major problem with compatibility, I would like to know before I start.
    Thanks for your help

    I've done a number of them. They hold up OK, but the main one I use on my bigger skid has been highly modified, and I still run into some reliability issues from pushing it too hard. I would suggest a cross-over relief valve, flow restrictors, and a chain lift to keep it more reliable.

    As for ease of installation, it doesn't get much easier than this:
