Nope, that still her "As is" condition from when I bought her. Only painting I've done is whenever I get a scratch on the sheetmetal I just hit it with a burst rattlecan IH Red. Its not fully worn down faded, but its not restored either. Gives it character.

Thanks again for all your replies. I really like the idea of the belly plow! Seems much stronger in my opinion. Twotone, do you plow snow with that? or are the front tires an issue. My bro-in-law was using our woods deck as a "plow" to "grade" some dirt (the two front casters are currently broken off, and he wonders why I always have to fix something on his tractor!!), and I got the idea to mount a blade under there for the snow plow. I believe the front tires are skinny enough to just slice thru the snow and the blade should function as normal? hmmm.....

I haven't plowed snow with that blade at all. I graded my long gravel drive in mid mount position. I would think that it would plow snow just fine mounted underneath, as long as the snow isn't too deep.

What's the spring for? Just to keep the blade pushed down to the ground and not rely on the hydraulics? Or, to act as a buffer if the blade hits something, to protect the hydro? I was thinking of just hanging it from a chain, let the weight of the blade keep it down, and then the chain will keep the hydro safe if it slams upwards?

The spring acts as a buffer if you hit something. You really need it when the blade is in the mid position since the lever is straight up to the hydraulics. Otherwise, when you hit something it will really jar things. It does anyway, but the spring does help. The mid position is excellent for grading dirt or gravel, but it doesn't work well for pushing snow. The snow doesn't roll off the blade as well as dirt or gravel, and it will end up packing up between the front wheels. I had snow packed up to the oil pan in my Cub, and it eventually started loosing traction to the point where I couldn't push it any longer.

Here around western NY I've seen a lot of blades made up for Super A, 130, 140 tractors from old truck snow plows. Since there are a ton of truck snow plows around here, I think that's how I'd make up a new one too, look for a truck plow that's missing the mounting hardware, then fabricate up a frame for the tractor. There's good mounting points on the final drives just make sure to really tighten the bolts so the holes don't get worn out from slop in the mounting system.

Yeah, and if your front wheels are set wider than the blade you're gonna have problems.
