• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

homemade deflector

Go find a section of a conveyor or other type deal and cut a strip of that, then find a piece of 1" flat stock, drill some holes in it and voila! a cheap deflector. btw, try to use stainless bolts of this, just incase you ever want to take it off, the bolts wont rust in the salt.

home made Deflector

The Best deflector Western sells is a 1/2 thick by 6-8 inch
piece of rubber. I don't know if they still sell a plastic one but don't buy it , It will just get bent up.
As Snowybowtie says, just get some type of rubber and bolt it
to the top of blade, it will be the same as the one from western.
It makes a world of differance in light powder like the last storm.
I will not plow with out one.
