    Ran across this sitting in a Lowes parking lot. Is this a common problem?

    That has obviously been abused/neglected...look at the skid shoes...a little past replacement i would say.

    Personall I like picures of bent equipment weather mine or others (prefer others so I didn't have to pay for repair bill) , show them to operators as a reminder, that stuff breaks if they dont pay attention & comes with repair bills which my bottom line & their affects raises.

    Let's not forget that everything is bendable and/or breakable. I've seen bent or broken plows in all the various forums. I don't think it's a big deal. It wouldn't prevent me from buying an Arctic Sectional, but I like to see what can happen if it's not used properly.

    The LD's are more meant for skids. They say they are good for up to 18,000 lbs but I could fold my 12 and 14 ft's up in one night with a rough operator on a 12000 lb tractor. I wish I had got HD's but I didn't because they said they were good for anything under 18,000 lbs.

    That machine sit's on that account all YEAR. It was bought brand new 2 years ago for plowing only. As for the damage to that sectional. one side was done 3 years ago and the other last year. One was pole damage and the other was a retaining wall. They are a little rough on the unit so it's held up very well. The owner let me try it out then it was brand new. the plow is great

    I have 14ft HD. It weighs 3500 pounds. It needs to be on at least a 22,000 pound loader.
