    I found an old blade and want to put a plate on it to use with my skid steer. I was wondering if anyone had any pics of how you welded or mounted the plow frame to the attachment plate.

    I'm fairly confident that I could figure it out but I am just interested as to what I am getting myself into.

    Thanks

    try the search you will find tons of info. There are some really good ones.

    figure out if you want to have downpressure or just lif it with a chain and have if float.
    dont forget a cross over relief valve. and a flow restrictor

    I did this with an old Diamond plow. Initially setup for Manual Angle but I intend on switching it to power angle. I have the parts just not the time. In the end I really prefer my snow bucket for driveways. But for Open Areas I think plows are preferable.

    I just welded 2 ears inside my bucket for each side with verticle holes (slots). Quick and easy, I have several buckets w/ this set up so if one machine or plow breaks they are interchangable and if I need to drop the plow to do stacking, I always have the plow with the machine. just be sure you don't set the ears too far back in the bucket.
