    Sorry, couldn't not let that slip. Can you post pics of the damage and the surrounding area. Who did the repair before and how did they repair it? Where did it break?

    Find a better welder to make a stronger repair.

    Then reevaluate how you plow. Yes it is more truck then a 1/2 ton. Though a 1 ton pickup is still not a skid steer or bucket loader.
