    For those who have had their plow sandblasted how much did it cost you. I am looking at having someone blast my plow in the spring and dont want it to get taken on the price so im wondering what you guys have spent.

    If you have a compressor, you are better off just buying a unit IMO. :cool:

    I got prices for both blasting and acid dip.Both were $100. Went with the acid dip,turned out well.The blade didnt have a spot of paint before dipping(rusty).Try Zero Rust if you dont have the paint guns.If you do try Polyurethane paints(tough stuff).

    thats not that bad im going to try to find someone to blast or dip it. Your plow looks great. As to buying a unit last year i did some sand blasting worst experiance iv ever had not much fun, to me its worth paying someone to do it then I will finish by painting it myself. I was planning on using por 15 chassis coat for the plow frame and then use the hardnose paint for the plow to get it yellow. It should look really good when im done and last a long time I hope.

    Look for monument companies- we had the local monument guy sand blast a York rake years ago- really reasonably. (monument as in head stones..for clarity- I know someone will ask eventually.)

    After you have it dipped or blasted why don't you have the moldboard powder coated? That holds up the best. Then just paint the rest yourself.

    I need my landscape trailer blasted and then painted. I tried a local auto body guy---wouldn't touch it with a ten ft pole--he said that they are getting regulated for disposal...he said no auto body would touch it. I might do it myself, but I'd rather save the time and get someone to do it. Just not sure who else to try--- I don't think the monument guy will want to do a trailer! Any other ideas??
