    Extension for the top of a 54"/66" plow set-up?

    After plowing 5 inches of snow on an extra wide driveway so that on the second pass snow was coming over the top, is there any thought to offering eventually a bolt on extension to the top of a 54"/66" plow set-up to compliment your extensions?

    That is about the 5th time I've heard of people wanting an extension for the top of the plow. BTW, I agree. The moldboard is not high enough.

    It's one of many pet projects awaiting attention. Somebody on here got a rubber kit made for ATV plows. A little bit of searching should turn it up. I think it was our good friend "636mullet" (hope I got the username right).

    Yep - not wide or high enough - that is why I shied away from the 54 plow and going a different direction.

    In my opinion, the 54 blade was originally intended for the 300 & 400 series tractors which was perfect for them - quite a bit of a smaller tractor than the 1 & 2 series of today. In this pic you can see that the 54 blade is plenty enough for the 332:

    As Chris mentioned a rubber flap from an ATV plow helps a lot.

    Height is really what I want especially when I push up piles otherwise it will just roll over the top of the flap.

    The flap contains the snow quite well even during piling. I have piles as high as the plow goes on the loader arms. I have experienced very little spill over.

    Oh ok, I see. Snow can certainly spill over when piling due to the plow leaning back as it rises. I've watched the whole plow completely disappear lately with the piles getting to be 7+ feet high. At that point, the blade is basically parallel with the ground. If you have the diverter, just dump the plow down and push the top of the pile over/back when they get too high. With extension hoses, you could set your blade to zero angle, switch the hoses back to dump/curl, "dump" the plow down, and go around knocking the tops back. It's kind of fun, actually. You can also pull the tops back toward you and then push them away to a better place if that works. I "organize" once in a while between storms in preparation for the next one.

    Truthfully, I don't think a few inches of higher blade is going to be the solution. I expect something along the lines of Big J Deere's flap will be better.
