Legacy pusher project

Recommended Posts

locknut

Thought up this mechanism a couple years ago but didn't have a straight blade to try it.Found a blade for the Legacy and went at it.Took a couple weeks to get it built and I tried it out today with a light snow fall.Worked great and cut plowing time in half.

The wings are loosely attached to the crossbar and moved by a short arm and pin that rides in an arced slot in the wing.A spring pulls them forward and down for pushing.A 4" actuator pulls the wings up against the spring for normal angle plowing.

Pushed some snow this morning before daylight.Crappy videos but maybe you can get the idea.I got a little more testy with the wings,ramming into piles and swinging the blade sideways with it on the ground.No problems as they stayed pointed straight ahead.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
