Plowing snow

Postby ajhbike » Tue Mar 05, 2019 10:14 am

I watched a DeHaven Farm video about putting a truck snow plow on the 3 point hitch and set right out to do it myself using their video as a guide. I bought a 6.5 ft plow for $100, bolted (rather than weld) the plow frame onto a TSC draw bar, used my quick hitch as the pivot frame and done. I gotta say that this plow is so much more capable than my grader blade. It was awesome for the super heavy end of driveway mound and cleaned it up in 3 pushes.

Easy to make, effective as heck and fun (first 2 storms are always fun....and then they are not)! More fun than the FEL on the 504. Anything to not shovel or snowblow.

i took a 3pt hitch back blade, turned the blade around, chained it in the bucket of my FEL and plowed snow that way one year in NE Indiana.

You would have to virtually chain the blade to both sides of the bucket while the bracketing would sit on the floor of the bucket, right? That sure sounds like it would work well.
I have a JD cylinder...for a model 8 mower....and I am thinking of hooking it up to change blade position off of the remotes on the back. Should work, right?

the bucket no long needs to touch the ground, only the blade, I used chains and binders, worked well. I still had room to angle the blade

Cool....I have an FEL and an extra grading blade now so I might give that a try.
