Moldboard wing

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Moldboard wing

Postby shiggy » Tue Apr 19, 2011 8:16 pm

I built this earlier in the year. It's a grader moldboard wing hookup, yeah it's for snow.

We have 4 graders that we do not use anymore for snow removal, we run all tandems with side plows. We do have 4 post wings that we can mount on our graders, but you are very limited on use of the machine. So I came up with the idea of making a moldboard wing hookup since we had a very old wing sitting around.

Here's the hookup I made, remember the side plow must pivot on that pin when you slide the moldboard in and out. I figured with this setup you have lots of reach when you rack that moldboard up and out. I'll just post some pics and won't go into detail unless asked.

Please let me know if anybody gets tired of seeing my work related projects that I post. I don't want to spam the "Projects Forum" but I do have lots of pics of these projects I could share. :D

thanks for looking

That is what the projects forum is for. How I Done Did That :!: Doesn't matter what the project is there is always something to learn from them for many of us. What may be on a larger unit might also be a viable project for a Cub or one of the other tractors someone might have. Keep posting I sure like em :D The view stats aren't too bad either considering it is the projects forum.

thanks for such postivie feedback everyone.

Gary Dotson - I've spent years and years trying to get a bead to lay like I can now, you should've seen them when I started. Only way I can't weld yet is a vertical up with good penetration. I have tried and tried. One of these days, I will make myself weld everything vertically up, then I should start getting better at it. But when I build a plow hitch for our tandem's, I keep thinking about that 1200 - 1500 lb snow plow out in front of that truck running 60 mph back to the shed. Sh*t can't break and trust me, some of our guys try. :D

Adam, I'm not much good on vertical welds either (up or down) but I do OK otherwise. Almost everything I weld is light gauge stuff, it really makes me appreciate your work. Your welder has got to be a serious machine, what are you using?

Gary, here's the welder. It's a Lincoln CV-300 three phase unit with a Double Header DH-10. Yeah it has two stingers. One I use for mild steel and the other is stainless steel. Mild steel gas is Argon/CO2 mix and the stainless steel uses a helium mix. If you have never welded stainless, it's a pain in the a** cuz of the oils in the metal. Have to weld much hotter, atleast that's what I have found. I use 0.45 wire for the mild steel, 44 lb roll. For the stainless I have just switched to 0.35 wire, always ran 0.45 but that wire is so hard on the liner of the stinger because the wire is soooo stiff. And no you can't run both stingers at once, usually people ask that question. :D The feeder control has alot of nice functions to it. You can set your own spot timer, meaning if it's set to .3 seconds, you hit the trigger and it will feed wire for .3 seconds. It has a 2 step and 4 step functions. Allow me to explain, 2 step means you squeeze the trigger wire will feed, you release trigger wire stops. 4 step is you squeeze trigger and you can let go and the wire keeps feeding until you squeeze trigger again. Very very nice for the long HOT welds, you can back your hand up the gun away from the heat. There are functions that control the gas as well, pre flow and post flow. I hate those fish eyes you get at the end of your weld, the post flow tends to help with that, from what I have found out.

As I suspected, that's quite a machine! Thanks for sharing a little info about it. I've never used one quite that large, but used a 251 Miller with a stinger & a spool gun for aluminum. I liked that welder a lot! Wish I could have brought it home with me when I retired!

Adam, I used to run behind similar plows many years ago when I trucked. Gotta be able to move some serious snow in our part of the state. I been on old 66 during white outs all around Central/North Central Illinois. Back as far as 1977. Nice to put a name to you guys who keep us moving. Wish I could weld.
