    I plow for myself and a few elderly people arround town. I picked this up for $75 used some scrap I had for a mount and im off to the races.

    I still need to address the bend in the blade but it actually still sits level on the grond.

    It was mounted on a F250. Im not sure what was hit but it did give it a nice bend. I should have it straigned out tomorrow

    To fix the bend I ended ub cutting a vertical slit in the front edge then I cut a similar slit in the rear on one side of the angle iron. A little heat and a few bodies the blade straighended right out.

    I welded up the slit in the front and welded on some bracing in the rear to strengthen it and it is ready to go. Just need some snow now.

    Sorry I have not taken any pics

    $75?!?! You can't beat that with a stick. The Proshovel is the same one I have. Got it a Home Depot a couple years ago. Really nice little plow.

    I put extra angle on the bottom of mine the day I bought it. I never bent the plow yet and I torture it. Plow about a dozen accounts with it.
