    Figured it was time to post some pictures. They do all need a good wash, but it's only about 15 degrees so it'll wait another day.

    Are those back blades on the pickups?

    Nice fab job. I have the Artic ones but I really like how yours tucks up against the truck so close.

    very nice work!

    I wish I had that kind of talent! My new shop is next to a welding shop, I've run a few ideas past him, I'll add this to the list.
    Thanks for sharing!

    As long as you can lay a decent weld you can build one. I copied the iDea from a local marine company that plows snow, they build all their stuff custom. But the blade replaces the bumper and the trailer hitch. But it is very nice hooking up a trailer when your hitch moves up and down. Also it doesn't hang out future then the standard bumper.

    Here's how I use to move snow before I could afford a plow truck or my own tractor.

    Those 420/430's are good machines, and still hold their value around here.
    I have a customer who offered me one in trade for work, but it had had a hard life on the farm and needed a new engine. There is a company that makes a repro replacement for the Onan, but they are like $1,800. I didn't want/need another project.

    I like my 425. The 720 is slightly bigger, roomier. I want to upgrade the 425 to a 1023/ 1025. Still want something that will fit down the sidewalk. Looking to get bigger so I can keep route times the same as snow amounts increase.

    The 430 was a great tractor. We had a 60" grooming mower for the 3point too. BUT then we upgraded to a 4100 with a cab and blower. Also had a 790 but sold both of those to get the 3520. I found a pretty good deal on a 1999 445 a few years go, only has 450 hours on it. I just use it as a booming tractor on the spring for de-thatching. Here's the old groom before selling two of them dad made the pic.
