    Better shot of the bracket assy. NO it is NOT going to stay bolted together with the little bolts! It is bolted right into the ext manifold, that is the one spot that isn't wimpy bolts. Only thing I have to do now is get new lines, put the brace on the back of the pump, get the drive pully and belt, (got one for sale?) and go get the blade!

    the whole bracket is made from 1/4" by 4" angle iron, blew up my angle gringer cutting it, and think I killed the die grinder the same way! lol Also broke 2-3 drill bits. I would give my right arm to have acess to a real shop!
    Just waiting to go get the blade!!:D

    I agree with Vector, motivation is "EVERYTHING" when you get to a point you can't figure out, stepping back and thinking about it over night helps out allot !!!

    Nice job, best of luck with the blade..:)

    Thanx you guys. Means a lot coming from people that know what they are doing! (yes, I AM serious)
    Got the blade today, everything works ok except I NEED to get the drive pulley as my cordless drill wouldn't spin the pump fast enough to build up enough pressure to lift it!!:rolleyes:
    Bonus! It has a (well worn) urathane edge on it!! Only has about 1/4" left on the ends before it hits metal tho:( guess I am getting a new one REAL soon!
    One other thing. I got no shoes?(feet, pads etc) Or even mounts for them?:confused: Anyone know why? Is it just because it is such a small blade?

    I know on the very small Western plows, you don't get feet, I would imagine it would be the same for Fisher. With a U edge, you dont need shoes, so that's a plus!

    Looks like a good setup!

    Thanx Snowy! Anyone know where I can find the right U edge for this thing? Supposed to be a 6'6" blade (yes I need to check it) with 9 bolts.Everything I have been finding says 6'9" with 8 bolts! :confused: Any ideas?

    Contact Dino, plowking35. He sells Urethane edeges and spinners. I think you may be able to reach him through www.arcticgroomer.com or if you can't get a hold of him, garagekeeper also is a dealer.
