    Started to snow about 7:30p.m Went to hook up plow.
    ( western conv mount 7.6 ) Plow raised up then slammed down.
    The two bottom bolts on the lift ram snapped. Took 2hrs to get broken bolts out of case, and for the live of me I counldn't find any the right size.
    I'll have to finish fixing it tomorrow. Good thing I plow on a 2 inch trigger.
    We only got about 3/4 inch. :cry:
