8 inches of snow and no way to plow

Still have not made any plow brackets for the 154. The old shovel and back still work.

Pete, that's a nice looking 154. You're lucky it has a good front fiberglass piece, ever priced one out?

Bummer! A working Cub with blade is the difference between playing in the snow and work. Don't over do it! :wink:

I made my own plow brackets for my 80's jeep cj 5 I started on Christmas eve on a Friday and by Wednesday I had a working plow set up. As I opened up the shop door to park it outside it started snowing. This was in the late 90's. You jogged my memory. I had the plow setup off a 55 Willy' s. It fit the 80 cj with new brackets.

I took the same plow setup and made brackets to fit my 154. I had the frame brackets and lift rods, I was missing the plow and plow frame brackets. Looking at the lower bracket n the tractor that holds the plow frame I made one. Then I cut the jeep plow height wise and width wise to lighten it up. I found out the first snowfall that wheel weights were needed.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Do you have a way to put weight on the back and chains? When I first got my 154 I did not have any weight on the back and it did not plow as I had hoped it would even with chains. This year I have a scraper blade on the back and use it mainly for weight when I use the front blade. Yesterday we had 14 inches and I plowed the driveway to the dirt and moved some big snow piles with my 154.

Id like to set it up with a three point and some chains. All in good time. I have noticed that these numbered tractors are very light and need something more for beter traction.

I found out that dual wheel weights work better on the rear.
