    i broke one of the lower pins on my wifes truck. $11.00 plus tax no bad
    now i broke the center upper long pin on my v blade. dealer isn't open yet. so any dealers here want to sell one? how much shipped to 50312. credit card or pay pal?
    its the second time i've broke the pin on my v blade at the same spot. right where they have the pin drilled. then pushed a smaller pin through. to stop pin from coming out.

    hey vw.... come up to north iowa. we have close to 2' on the ground. i still havent had a chance to put the new cutting edges on yet. will probabily wait till next year now. never lost or broke the center pin on my V. can you get a hardened rod and make your own?

    I guess that I am not familliar with the 3 pin mount, but are'nt they just a hardened hitch pin like you would buy at oreschlein's or Tractor Supply???
  6. they should be. I can get pins at my local hardware store.

    Have them look in their book to verify that the pins are hardened. The one's I am running look just like the Sno Way pins except they are bright orange and only cost $1.75. If you get the ones that aren't hardened they last about 10 min (don't ask how I found this out, but it was messy).
