snow plow lift rod

Recommended Posts

TRAC TOR
My snow plow uses a chain connected to the lift, when I drop the plow, it tends to glide on the snow without any pressure. A rod would probably hold it in place. I have a rod for the snow thrower, but it is too long for the plow. Are the rods available?

Most of the lift rods are no longer availabe and would be easy to make. Go to Tractor Supply Co. (TSC) and buy the rod. Dutch had a topic a couple of years ago on making a lift rod.

Oh the last one is just for kicks:o) Elon

Elon, Nice work on those rods, and that's quite a gagle of tractors you have there. How do you like that shelter? I've been wondering how they hold up in a wind storm, we get some pretty stiff breezes around here.

They are a cheep way to keep things dry. In the sun they get quite hot. I keep the door open to keep the heat down. I close it when a storm comes. So far it has held up great. I just wish I got a bigger one. I'm running out of room quick. Elon

Comet66, I have one of the round shaped shelters. It is 12x20. I was also worried about wind, but it holds up well and hardly moves. I think it will hold for quite a few years. Mine is supposed to have a 15 year warranty on the vinyl cover. I also staked the framework down quite well, and as I said, it doesn't move much at all in heavy winds.
