    54"snow blade modified to 66" scoop style blade

    I was a bit frustrated with the width of the stock John Deere 54" snow blade being too narrow, so decided to modify it to work better for my application. I am limited by a gate width that I have at the side of my property, so built it to fit through the gate, which it now works perfectly for. When the blade is angled, I no longer have snow rolling over the outside end of the blade. It also works great for a straight "push" where it acts like a scoop. I've also added reversible puck board cutting edge, which will last for years.(I've done it before on a previous snow blade) Thought I would share it in case someone would like ideas on building the same thing.

    Nice work GT and as I posted in the other thread, I think you and I might share auto collision repair backgrounds? I'm curious what finish you used? I have used Diamont Uno single stage urethane for the JD Green seat pan of an X500 I used to have but I had to tint it to get the match I wanted. I recently ordered up a half pint of Limco JD Yellow urethane for brush touch ups but it was useless for that, too transparent.

    Looks an awful lot like a Semi-U blade on a bulldozer.

    Hi Joe,
    Sorry for the late reply, we're obviously in different time zones. Yes, you are correct that we share similar backgrounds. I've also tried different types of automotive paint and wasn't having much luck either. I finally ended up finding that the John Deere brand paint used with a wet on wet, two part epoxy, gives the best results. It has great coverage, fairly easy to spray and seems to stay shinny once it cures. (I did cheat and add a bit of urethane hardener) One drawback is that the painted part has to be left a few days before you handle it because of the slow drying characteristics. This paint also works great unreduced for brush touchups too, I find. You requested that I include a few pictures of my 56 Chevy pickup on the other post, so I have included. I am also currently building a 71 Chevy 2WD shortbox fleetside pickup. (Will include a few pictures of it also) I am sort of at a standstill because I can't decide whether I should go with the new LS fuel injected drivetrain or use the crate motor I have already purchased. Either way, these trucks keep me pretty busy, but I always find time to do small projects on my tractors. Not sure if I will get into trouble for posting truck pictures on a tractor website........
    Tom

    Puck Board is a ultra hard plastic that does not damage pavement/concrete etc., but gives you the same cutting edge characteristic's as a steel cutting edge.(Same stuff as used in hockey arenas I believe) It is also know as HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) I purchased from a local commercial plastics dealer who cut the size I needed off of a 1/2" sheet. He charged me $75 for the piece in the picture. I have had it on previous snowblades and expect to get at least 5 years use from it. (Using both sides) Hope this helps.
