    Picked this up today. Needs some bodywork but mechanically is in good condition. I will be putting on a straight blade so if anyone wants to buy the V plow let me know. Also if anyone has the rubber cleats for the tracks let me know please. It should be an interesting project.!

    local tow company picked one up few years ago. put a 6ft-7ft blade on it. when that huge scrap steel price jump went i last year or so he used the hell out of it. people junkin stuff and couldnt get it out to the road for the tow truck to get. so he loaded this up and plowed his way in and pulled the junk cars out all day long every day no problems. that unit paid for its self. and now he has it for plowin the lot.

    heck if it was me just keep the v blade. fresh paint job and put house # on it and set it in the front yard. mabye a pole in the middle arched out to the tip and hang mailbox on it. then if you ever did need it you would have it.,

    I think I am going to keep the Vplow. I was surprised at how well it worked. It made a nice wide swath. Can't wait to paint it and letter it up.

    That's what I was thinking when you said you wanted to sell the V. Never know when it would come in handy. Cool machine, get that video up.
