    It looks like you have a steel edge on there, you might want to go with rubber or eurathane. That steel might be a bit of a rough ride if you catch a man hole cover or something solid in the ground.

    Are you only using the two flat plates as attachment to the moldboard? You need to spread that out and add some triangulation to help prevent lateral movement, vibrations, and chatter. It looks very under supported to me.

    I'll second the urethane cutting edge. That will also help if you hit something.

    That looks good, I would of made the wings a little longer so it could carry more snow though.

    Look good job. Why not make backward plow like you saw tractor plow backward.

    My Ford 601 is too heavy duty for that but it would bent mount if hit stump or thing that are hard to moving. I bent mount on top link because plow try trip on stump but it push top link mount to bent plus bent top link on tractor. That was 5 mph but surprise it have enough traction keep moving until sudden bang then look at then saw bent.

    It could be good project try mount snowplow on front of tractor would be best. More easy plus no more stuck in snow. I hope make mount for tractor with meyer 7'6.
