Wow, a 5 year old thread brought back to the top. :big afro:

I don't think it would matter that much where John lives, He is in MO., not the bone chilling frozen north.

I bet if he was at full throttle in 2nd gear and hit a stump or curb in the summer time, it would do the same thing.

You guys don't ever let a fella forget a mistake, no matter how hard he tries, do you.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

We sure don't John, but then Nick did have a valid question. :lol: You didn't make a mistake, you created a learning experience for others.

On a more serious note, with the snow season upon us a lot of new members may be plowing for the first time. This will serve as a good reminder of things to watch for.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

In the big city 3rd is fast. I much prefer to be 'put-puting' along. Granite curbstones vs a 54, my money is on the granite!

I surely felt your pain when it happened EJP, and learned from it. Probably owe you some money for the stuff I didn't break :wink:

That break can be welded and reinforced much better than new.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

It probably is now stronger than it was before, it went to scrap and is probably in some body's garage by now.
