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.
