    Weekend find

    What would life be like without Projects? With winter on the downward slide, this weekend I found and purchased a plow blade. A Cub/Yamar 6' blade with hydro lift and turn. This was a brand new, never used complete set up at a great price. As I was taking it apart to fit and lift into my wife's suv the owner came to help. Once loaded he looked and said you might as well take the 5' blade with it. In it went and home to unload. Now the project starts. I am thinking a loader frame mount for easy on and off. Just like my fork set. Any suggestions would be helpful. I have a 1025r with h 120 loader . I was thinking the 5' blade would be best and maybe sell the 6'blade. What do you think? Blade is a FB 60 and a FB 72 really solid.

    Good project. What I did, I found a cheap 7' western blade.msandblasted and painted. Cut A frame, made a mount for my 419 loader so easy on and off. Love it only way to plow snow, woks great, now I just have to get third valve on loader so I can angle it without getting off.

    Nice! If it were me, I'd just pick up one of the Artillian JDQA frames and weld things up. You'll have to figure out how to get your hydraulics straightened out for it but that should be do-able with a diverter or two.

    I use my plow on the loader arms and I think you'll find that you don't actually need your lift cylinder on that plow frame. You can cut a piece of steel to replace it and just use your loader arms for lifting.

    Sweet find.

    I'd keep both blades till you get a chance to try them out and see which one works best.
