    Ok well we're looking into getting a couple belly blades... But i dont know what im doing wrong! I cant find any belly blades that go on trucks online! So i was wondering if anyone knew of a specific company who manufactures belly blades...
    All i can find are the ones that go on small tractors. Im looking for one like county size!
    Also anyone know about how much they cost? Thanks!

    Unless you're doing roads; why do you want a belly blade?

    The cost to outfit a truck would be High......Also, i would check with Your Local weighmaster......In the State of Michigan any Plow over 8 foot is a Ticket....no matter what angle the plow is carried at.....

    The Oakland County Weighmaster loves the to pull over the "Old" County Trucks that are privately owned and write tickets for over sized Plows....The belly Blade on most of those trucks was 11 Foot......

    Not sure where your at in Michigan but call Buck and Knobby equipment. They have a few used belley plows that would need some fab work but im sure they would be cheaper than a new one?

    they dont have them on the online inventory but I was there last week and they had two of them

    Do you need it just for the down pressure to pull up hardpack?
