I got bored sitting around all day doing nothing so I went out in the garage and started messing with one of the mowers and this is what I made, it consists of a 8' 2x6 and half a 3x8 sheet of 1/2" thick lexan and8 bungee cords, yes it works, hell I moved around some loose gravel in our driveway.

If that is a John Deere F725 I have a 48" snow blower, wheel weights, rear weights, tire chains and also a 60" MB power broom for it. We lost our F725 in a fire three years ago and we have not used it since so we well sell these two pieces at a very low price because they are just in our way, i can send pictures and even maybe meet you half way if you are intrested. Let me know, they work excellent and have not that many hours on them, Let me know, not that many contractors have the F725 that is why i havent been able to sell them because they only fit that model. Let me know what you think .

Geoff, I tried a regular plow spring but it wouldnt trip even if it took a hard hit, then I took a garage door spring and tried that, didnt work , my little brother said to use bungee cords, walla it works!!

Bill, not a snowflakes chance in hell!!

John DiMartino; hopefully it will work in all types of snow

Up In Buffalo my truck and plow mechanicly is holding up just great. Only problem I had was breaking a plow mounting pin. It stayed on by resting on the end of the bolt on the mount. Wouldnt want to drive to the new dealer like that again.

When at the dealer durring the last round of this storm I asked how busy thay have been. She said thay had the most people come in durring the first round christmas eve. Most needed parts were hydo hoses and pins (I got the last one). Only sold 2 hydro pumps, 1 chain. 1 stobe and a jack stand?
I know a couple people that lost brake cyliners on thier trucks and passed a Dodge with a blow tranny.
 
Looks good. I'd hate to see what you could do with an unlimited budget, you could really use some sponsors and a patent form or two.

I just figgured out what that cost to make.......Less then $25

I am debating on making a set of mini pro wings for it outta lexan.

Intimidator: My original plan was to make a 7' meyer plow fit on there but my $$ got tight and I sold the plow, I Doubt I would patent something like that but I have a 60" wide and 20" high steel/lexan blade in the workings similar to a 18 series Sno~way( uses a 18 series lexan insert) that I will spend the money to patent and I know I will have a market for them because John Deere does not make a blade for them just a $2500 single stage blower and there is a ton of people that run those mowers around here. If anybody wants to send me $$ in small bills here ya go :po box 1232 Holland Ohio 43528-1232:rolleyes: :D
