TC for Snow Plowing

Postby ajhbike » Fri Sep 01, 2017 7:30 am

Has anyone developed an extension plate to modify the left side TC rockshaft lift arm so the lift rod will lower the rear assembly while lifting the front plow? I have a weird driveway and need to be able to push snow with the front plow and then push snow with a light blade on the rear and they both can't be down at the same time (gravel driveway). Thoughts?

Should not be hard to make an arm for the lift so the rear rod moes in reverse of normal, or you could simply put a hand lift on to operate the rear and only let it down when needed. Having it always moveing the opposite of the front would result in one or the other always being down.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Since I don't have a hand lift, fooling around with an arm will be a good weekend project...a bolt and a hole for the pin and figure out the shape.

I suggest you look into some type of latching mechanism conceptually similar to what was done for the Cub-189 two-way plow. If you want to stick with the up-down behavior, you would probably find it easier to leave the back end as is and reverse the behavior of the front blade. If you have a Cub-54 blade, remove the link that connects directly to the rockshaft and add a rod/chain to the upper part of the lifting lever.

I think this is what he is getting after. It's the same thing I was suggesting via PM.
