    Greeting everyone, it's my first post!

    I am from the Croatia, my name is Vlado. Since 2005. I am the owner of garden tractors MTD, with the engine Tecumseh OHV Formula 12.5. Until now I have used it only for mowing grass, and I recently finished creating a snow plow.

    Snowplow will serve only for cleaning my yard of snow, and with me the last few winters falls very little snow.

    Here are some photos of my plow. Do not be too critical, it's my very first plow in my life :drinkup:

    Cutting metal, welding...

    Snowplow is ready for use, but I still have no experience in snow plowing.... I do not know whether we need tire chains, because half of the court was covered with concrete, the second half of the grassland.

    Thank you for your compliment, a little color for the metal and valuable hands give pretty good results! wesport

    looks like a nice low budget set up,

    simple and easy,

    now have fun plowing, due you have Chains and weights for your MTD
    that might be the next step but the Plow you made looks great.

    sublime out.

    Thank you all! But I can't wait snow to fall, otherwise it will be useless investment and effort! :jester:

    Looks as though you did a first class job!!!

    I was certainly not time wasted no matter what. You had fun building it, and can always find a use for it. Enjoy.
