    i finally said screw it i have to fix this thing, i was gonna have a fab shop do it but he wasn't sounding like he wanted too

    but i had a blade laying around and tried to widen it, so it was only a 48''blade and not correct shape and not tall enough but still better than nothing,

    i wanted to make it taller with mesh screen, but probably would look like crap unless i get creative, well crappier than it already looks

    metal is hard to come by in a wood working shop hahaha

    i need to weld the bad parts, haven't decided to weld or just bolt the wings on?

    with the way you plow snow I would weld it together then put a bolt through it, them to make sure, put a patch over both and weld the whole works together again, cross brace it from top to bottom and side to side and you should be good to go. or at least make it through the next storm.

    good luck.

    looking foward to more great snowmoblie/atv plowing video's again this year.

    sublime out.

    haha its a tool that gets worked hahaha its not like i am pushing 3''on pavement, i push a foot over uneven crappy dirt and a few stones hahaha man i need a driveway.

    its hideous i realize that but its wider so that means less time i hope, i am getting older hahaha

    yea i was gonna say wine me dine me hahahaha just worked out that way as far as numbers i can cut it down if i need.

    yea i am thinking rigid myself, the dam springs didnt trip anyway,and all that is shot,

    you want me to use steel plates dam i cut up some nice oak ones i was gonna use outside poly so itwill last hahahaa. you guys would **** if i built a new one out of wood hahaha

    alright so the results are really good hahaha my boys hooked me up on the welding job,

    one of them guys that say get out of the way i'll do it hahaha wasn't feeling theburn anyway hahaha

    its rigid again no doing what it wants meandering hahaha

    the width although its heavy just pushes a wide swath of snow might keep the snow from engulfing the quad.

    Looks good from what I can see so far. The extensions I made for mine have been working out really well with only bolts. The plan was to weld them, but I ran out of wire while I was tacking the first one. Anyway, find those pics and get em up.
