    How in the world does stuff get soo broken up? Last yr I bought an old gm set with 8' blade. The "H" beam was twisted like a pretzel; I couldn't heat it quite enough with torch to bring it back. I don't have a forge (yet). I made a new one out of 6" I beam.Don't 'spose that will bend under normal use.
    I bought a 9' blade a couple months ago, cheap, thank God. I understand how the ends are worn beyond recognition from curbs in parking lots. The cylinder attachments on the plow end are broken right out. (holes are actually broken)The front 1/2 is pushed through the plow. Closer inspection now that I am ready to repair, I find trip edge pin holes are broken away as well..:angry:
    How does all this happen?? Abuse, ya think?
    I have the fire wrench and big hot glue gun and ability. Any one wanna help?:help:

    Sounds like some beat up salty Shi*. In CT ive come across decent speedcast blade and a frames for like $200 at the most and usually they just need paint, angle rams, hoses and all. Look around on craigslist.

    That is where I found this 1 lol..:mechanic:
    I went after it , farmer pulled it out of his field with a loader. I gave it a once over, and it was in my trailer.
    Yeah it had no rams. I WILL prevail, just take me a few more minutes..
