    If I'm not mistaken, that pic of the painted municiple blades is from my hometown, it looks like one of hour city trucks. Every year they have a contest to raise money for charity where kids design and paint the blades.

    I made a bike lawnmower. I will take a picture tomorrow and post it. I took a regular cheap mountain bike and cut the fork right below the head tube and then made a bracket and welded one of those non motor push mowers on there. Its a little hard to turn, but kind of cool.

    Cool pics, the painted plow looks good


    why put a plow on a golf cart? so the golfers can play in a snow storm?

    I think somewhere on here, there is a link to a video, that a guy has a remote control snow remover. Can't remember exactly what it was, but it was funny.

    I don't have any pics but when I lived in Colorado Springs, CO I witnessed a forklift in a Home Depot parking lot with a homemade plow. 10 pallets on the forks with some HD cardboard stapled to the front. It was quite the sight watching him move 10 feet, create a pile that he could no longer move and spin his wheels. :D

    A buddy of mine owns a golf cart shop. You would be surpirsed how well they will actually move snow. He has a gas powered cart, with a locked rear end, quad tires, with a blade, he clears his whole lot, and does several drives with it.

    Not all that odd, but. This what you get when you have someone who had never seen a box scraper before making one out of an old recycling dumpster. It works, but is hard to steer.

    home depot

    i work at HD and I do something like that we take 3pallets or so with concrete slabs on them so there is some weight on it so we dont get stuck. and we can plow a good distance without getting stuck. of course we dont do the whole lot just around lumber and receiving maybe i will get some pics if i have time this week

    My 1st plow

    This was my first plow, that I made for a 3-wheeler from a 55-gal steel barrel, about 30 years ago,....

    Thats cool, I wouldnt think it would have that much torque or pushing power, but then again my buddy uses a real old gas powered golf cart to push cars all over his yard... Hang a shower curtain around the darn thing and now you have an enclosed sidewalk machine...
