46" Dozer Blade Control Rod...

Recommended Posts

Now I promise I had these built last night when I saw Ray's post for the first time for the same item...all I can say is "great minds think alike" :DThe print below I got here from a club resource. It was very helpful with measurements, etc...I saw Ray's control handle is made like the OEM spec but I altered mine just a bit to make it quicker to fab.

I found 4 of these pre-made brackets to use for the rod/handle end of the swivels

for the plow end of the swivel I cut some 1/2" pipe and drilled a hole for a pin and a larger to go over the "stud" on the plow...

I made a small bevel for the piece to clear when it pivots

The first 2 I made I welded a nut to the bracket so the rod has more support for welding

The black control rod above and below is the one I made last year using a swivel socket welded to a rod and drilled to fit on the plow's stud...

It works ok, but below you see how it pivots sideways & binds a little. The newer type won't do that

Works great sm01

On the next 2 I welded the rod to the bracket without the nut...looks better

The other 2 waiting for there new control rods...

Using the pre-made brackets and the pipe pcs. made these an easy fab. Only about 2 or 3 hrs for 4 of them. They don't look as good as Ray's and his are the true OEM style. But these will do the job...sm01

Greg, they look great. Where did you find the pre made bracket? Looks alot easier. I suppose I should start showing better pictures instead of distant shots of a finished part:D.
