3pt Snow Plow

Fri Jan 30, 2004 6:58 pm

Would a 6-7 foot snow plow mounted on a worksaver be too much for a 1960 Lo-Boy to handle? Would it dangerously lift the front wheels off the ground? what about goin up a 5-10% grade? Thanks all.

7' would really be too much I think. 6' might be asking a lot too. You should at least have front wheel weights and I doubt you'd be able to handle very deep snow,

I'm no expert but I can't imagine the cub with either one.

I have a Kubota BX2200, it has a 22hp diesal with 4WD and I would only use a 60" or 72" blade on it.

Thanks BigDog. It might be a 5 foot plow. I dunno. It is light to tell the truth, i can drag it through the yard. But that may be a result of my previous "armstrong" steering. :lol:

I had a 6ft blade behind my Farmall H last winter and I wasn't too successfull with it and the H is easily 4xs the tractor. Now a 5ft out front with wheel weights and chains and you might be a talkin.

Well i have calcium, weights, and chains. so im good there. I belive it is a 5 foot blade because im 5'6 and i know its not as long as i am tall. Also it fits nice an' snug behind the cubby :D I was successful in past winters, but i havnt plowed in about 4 years due to restoration. And also, do wheel weights rub up agians the wheels, i dont want to damage my new paint job. Thanks All!

Wheel weights bolt solidly to the wheel discs, and shouldn't move, but they will damage the paint where they contact. If you tractor spends much time in the sun, there will be a difference from fading. The question you have to ask yourself, is "Is my tractor for looks, or for use?".

Theres a reason i NEED two cubs :twisted:

The weights will not only mark up your paint job but they will also trap a lot of water between the weight and the wheel disc which turns into "RUST". I just got through cleaning my 2 weights today and primed them. As I was doing this I thought Hmmm, Wonder if a thin gasket would be a good idea sandwiched in between them. But that might make it worse for collecting water.

John,
Interesting thought on the gasket. Another option might be to put a washer on the bolt behind the weight. That way it will only make contact on the face of the washer and can dry out behind if it gets wet. If you used a thin washer, I doubt you'd be able to tell it was there.

That sounds like a job for DUCT TAPE

:shock: never thought of that...... :twisted:

:lol: Might be a good idea George. It might even create an air-duct between the two. But then again it could make matters worse by creating a via~duct through them. :roll: I just haven`t figured out yet which Duct duct-tape Ducts yet. :mrgreen:
