    What kind of vechicle is that, and what type of plow. I really would like to use an SUV to plow with.

    Sucks when you think you just made some good money plowing then that happens. $1900 sounds kinda high for that.

    Here's my oops, caught a curb with the blade up :cry:
    just found out this afternoon when I took the plow off. called around and is looking like $660 for a new headgear. Nearly sheared the pins and get this, I plowed another ten hours without even knowing.

    repair it

    fregy just run down to the local weld shop thats a easy fix should be under a hundred to fix. A cutting wheel and a piece of 2" angle should repair that.

    It's more then just the angle iron, the chanel in front of the channel is slightly bentup, also nearly all the welds connected or near the anle are broke, the pin mounts for the A are also bent and broke.

    What in the world did ya hit that had to rock the truck? Ok all stuff made can be fixed but meyers uses some odd sizes so your going to need some time and fab to fix this. One of my subs trashed his stuff also so the quick fix is to buy replacement parts.
