    So until the economic situation gets better i spent some quality time in my shop. laugh all you want. after plowing in the rain er wet snow i now have a cold so i was done plowing in those conditions.
    it started out with a doodle on a piece of paper, and yes it should of ended there but, it was turkey day and i was bored lol.

    once i had to buy material, i was gonna see it through, even if i had a big bonfire it would be built. i had almost all the material minus some 2x;s they were cheap though.

    all in all, i could of been watchin tv lol, i think it will work out good enough better than spendin 14000 dollars lol. its a good thing i live in the country, the city folk couldnt understand.

    coming soon to a hack near you plyncon [plywood+rincon]

    Ya, if some woman ever tried to start telling me what I can and can't buy, she'd be out of the house so fast she wouldn't even know what happened. Thats why I'll never get married, its easier to trade em' in that way.;)

    But seriously, it looks like it will be A LOT better than sitting on the thing in the weather. The local PD has ATV's and the town puts plows on them and has them plowing the sidewalks. Looks miserable!

    well its in paint now. ill have some rigourous driving test to see how it goes.

    i still have to make the side windows but i have to see whats available.but im thinkin sliders will work?

    heres some pics throughout the day yesterday. and the rest are from today,

    i still have other things that need to be done but with the wind and sno spray off your face youd be surprised to see how warm it is. of course thatll be tested, lol soon hopefully.

    stay tuned for next weeks edition on double wings.

    looks good to me, Vs the Plowing without anything at all.
    are you gonna put side widows on it as well?

    then you also need to be able to angle the blade from the seat and put in a coffee cup holder and your all set.
