    not enough meat / beef in that table! Look at how much material is left after making the hole for the pivot pin.

    Looks like he tried pushing into too big of a bank with a large machine. 550s do it all the time with plows when loaded with the sander. can only imagine the machine being used at an airport with this plow

    Well what ever he hit, he now knows right where it is, so he can avoid it next time.
    In order for him to break the main cross beam and bend the braceing on the back of the blade like that he hit really REALLY HARD. I hope he had his seatbelt on, cause it had to jerk his but out of the seat.
