Hello all. Just about finished my 60” snow pusher, waiting for some JD decals to make it look “legit”. All in I’d say it cost me around 600$ with materials left over.
I used 3/16 steel plate 4x8 sheet at $250 I still have a 2’x5’ rectangle left
I had a shop bend the blade for me that was 200$... I’ve had them do it before and never paid that much so I was a bit surprised.
4”x1/2” 10’ long cutting edge was $80 as I prefer hardened steel edge.
Paint, hardware and some welding wire would make up the balance of the cost. Don’t want to see next months power bill.
I’d estimate around 25-30hrs which includes my “design and engineering” but I did have fun. No snow for the month of December yet weather has been very mild at 5*C
