    Snowplow height mods

    Just curious if anybody on here has experimented with increasing the height of the 54" plow? I know many have made mods to increase the width of their plows but I can't find any threads regarding height. The reason I ask is that I have a long narrow gravel drive and now that the snow banks are well established it's becoming increasingly difficult to plow new snow and get it up and over the banks. It would be nice to have another 6-10" of plow height. I was thinking something along the lines of this shape http://media.promarkoffroad.com/medi...te-blade_1.jpg

    It seems like it wouldn't be to difficult to fab up something that could be bolted on. Maybe I'll try to mock something up out of cardboard and see if it's worth transferring to metal.

    I haven't increased the height of a 54" blade but I run a converted 6.5 ft Meyer blade on the front of my tractor. It is 26" in high x 78" and works well on the 1025r

    If you've got access to a metal brake, it wouldn't be too hard to make something.

    My thought was making a flange that would bite across the back edge of the top that could be bolted through.

    Plow face, bend bottom edge 90 deg back, then take flange and bend around 180 degrees to create a C section to mate to the top of the plow.

    I too would like a little more height on my 54" plow

    That sounds like a lot of plow for a 1025. What's the deepest snow it's handled?

    Remember.....our snow is wetter than most places. The front on my 1025R was getting pushed around by my 54", but it took 12-16" of snow to cause that. Otherwise it blew through the snow like it wasn't there. (I only live maybe 10 miles south of you)

    No doubt, we had 2-3" earlier this week of the wettest heaviest stuff I've seen all winter. It put up much more of a fight than 8-10" of fluffy stuff.

    Plowed last night, it was like pushing concrete!

    The deepest snow so far has been a 11" wet snow. I also plow uphill with this. The 1025r handles this plow very well.
