"New" Adjust from Seat Spring Trip Blade

Recommended Posts

A few years back, I was clearing my neighbors driveway with my 725 and rigid snow plow.  While going downhill towards the concrete over the culvert, which was sticking up, the raised concrete stop the tractor dead in its tracks and threw me forward and I took the steering wheel in the gut. No damage to the either the tractor or plow, but I had a bruised stomach. I decided that is not going to happen again and replaced the solid plow with a spring trip and it happen to mount up to the old hitch. I am not convinced the plow shown above would take that kind of hit with out damage.

Same type of thing here some years back.  The blower really took the hit.  It was quite the sudden stop.  Light snow and moving along to keep the blower fed.    With the help of some very sophisticated and precise repair tools, I got it straightened out and ran it for another few years.  I can't imagine that new blade above surviving more than slight bump in the road.

      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!😁
