Snow Plow for 130

Postby FSAD » Tue Oct 20, 2015 3:10 pm

Well hello all....

New Farmall 130 owner here (not by choice, but the more I mess with this thing, the more I like it!). I said my hellos over in the introduction forum, but the main reason I joined was to pick yall's brain on snow plows. I would like to see if there is a specific setup for the 130 or if ill have to fab one up (can't do that right now, don't have a welder at the moment). I have no knowledge of nuttin' when it comes to resources on this kind of stuff but am highly mechanically inclined, so hit me with whatever. I just moved from across the country so my "shop" is a little needy - had to sell a bunch of stuff to make the move and wanted to upgrade a lot of it as well, so right now im hurting as far as fab work is concerned. Please tell me there is a bolt on unit that works great, never breaks and practically plows it self!! :lol:

Anywayyysss... I live in northern Kentucky, and any help or input is welcome.

thanks
mikey

Don't see them as much as Cub blades, Mikey, but here is one in Michigan. And when they do show up they are more than Cub blades, normally $500 - $700. IMHO this one is at least a couple hundred too high.

Also the factory blade can be belly mounted for fine grading! Check the manuals section for info. Or do a search for IH 60 blade on the Internet.

Yes, it will be referred to as an IH 60 blade or an "A-60" blade.

Like others have said, kinda rare. If you're planning on needing the tractor to plow snow this winter, you'd probably should plan on building something, or paying any price, or driving any distance.

Thank you all for your replies. I have actually located one locally, but it is a rusty bent bad looking thing. He wants 450 for it. And there are no little skids on the blade there are no little blocks which go inside that square block up front in the blade is only 5 feet wide. My tractor is at least six feet wide, I need to measure it, but it has the six foot wide woods mower Deck. Just sent an email to JP tractor. Thanks. I may go ahead and start shopping for a new welder :-)

Cub blade is 54", Super A-100 series is 60" wide.you could always add more width or set wheels in for plowing snow. Blocks and skids should not be hard to make. I had to make one block. Put a request on the vine or maybe someone will chime in with some reproduction ones.

I have the 60" blade on my 140, if you need any help with dimensions or photos of parts let me know.
I did not realize the 60's were that rare and $$$$, makes me feel better knowing I got the 140,blade and woods mower as a package for twice the price of the blade. :{_}:

I love it when people use my tractor as a reference! I paid $550.00 for my blade,missing the boomerang. Dale Finch was nice enough to make me a tracing on graph paper of hers. Easy to make one. I bought mine in Michigan. You don't need the boomerang when you front mount the blade.

Thanks again for the replies. I have started welder shopping. I figure I'll just look for a blade that's the width I prefer and build my frame work around that. I feel like there should be some supports going back to the rear wheels and not just that diagonal piece going up to the transmission area seems like a weak point to me . I need a welder anyway and this is a good excuse to bump up the time frame to get that. :-)

I'll keep you posted. It'll probably be a month or so till I get it done assuming the honey do list is not a mile long by then.

Never pass up a good excuse (a poor excuse works too) to buy a new tool. :)

I also have my wheels set as narrow as possible. The 60" blade covers the wheel tracks.

Hello, I see your question about the snow blade on the 130. I just purchased my 130 yesterday and it has the snow blade mounted. I'm not sure how upload pics on here, but if you give me your cell number I can send pics over text message. I'll be more than happy to show you how mine is mounted. I have factory blade with mine. The 130 is rare modle, even though it is basically a Super A with different decals and white grill. I've been told that they are worth decent money, not that I would ever sell mine, or any of my tractors for that matter. I'm very happy with what I payed for mine, and all the other attachments that came with it.
