:hi: No, Keith ain't right - normally this part is for opening beer bottles. But you can also use it as a wrench...

wanted to update my thread that arlen started for me (y)

needed something to help remove and mount my snowplow to the caddy easier.
i bought 3 of harbor freights dollies a couple of 2?4s, some bolts washers, and nuts.
got the youngest boy and one of his buddies to bolt the 2 by 4s to these dollies. made it like a big T. I THOUGHT IT SHOULD HAVE plywood screwed to it, but we tried it first and it worked like a charm, able to roll the plow back away from the gator no problem. i stuck my plywood back in the garage for something later
730857

so what do u think of the contraption?? i'm telling uns it is so easy to unhook. one finger can do it now(y):giggle:

I like it. No fingers if you make them do that as well. No good reason for you to be out in the elements. Me thinks that the plow came off in case you need to escape the working environment at home.

Looks good Jim. Mine is just in the barn and will likely need to be moved. However, with me having the poly blade, I thought the whole setup wasn't too heavy and the boys and I could move it. Of course, they won't always be available so a dolly like yours will probably be in my future sometime. The frame under mine has a kick stand that you drop down when disconnecting, does yours have one? Although with you're dolly, you wouldn't need to use it I suppose.

yes it does have a kick stand to it too. the only bad thing i found with that was u had to pull or push the gator instead. now that doesn't sound bad, untill u came to lining the what i call the horns into the female side of the hitch that is bolted onto the gator, if off a hair u then had to slide the plow one way or the other, which still isn't all that bad, untill u came to lining up the pins to bounce into the holes to lock then.

this is kind of the same thing, except u now can roll it around to line up way more straight into the hitch holes. the little pins that latch are the boogers, one side goes right in the whole way, the other side not near as easy, but with a little percusion of a small hammer, everything is in then. :giggle:

still think installing some plywood would be a good idea to make it more stronger, this is good till the weather turns a lot warmer outside.

ha! well now come on, do u think i want to escape from home already:unsure: losing my puter again starting today. without the plow charley boy and i can just jump in the gator for a ride around the mountains. i can see into the future it will certainly get crowded around here quickly. lol

You should look into an iPad. 99% of the time that is what I use for this site or other surfing. As far as the leaving home. I love my wife dearly but I can see that her being home next week is going to cramp my style.

today i tried her little itty bitty pad of something called. my god my hand is as big it is. ha!

since we are gonna be at home for how long now-i told her to get to it-and order herself a betterr laptop.. cause it aint gonna work for me to watch netflix or amazon prime movies all day and not be able to visit places. jeez.

did go riding to look for deer around dusk, saw over 30 of them out eating. so we stopped at my uncle and aunts to solve the world's problems. my uncle who had the triple by-pass last Jan. thinks that if he's in a crowd, and just one person has the virus, then he's gonna get it-and only him because of his heart by pass. i keep telling him to keep 6 or 8 ft away from everyone when out in the world, which he hasn't been out of the car the last time they was in town for his meds.

i tell him if he's wearing his mask, has gloves on, long sleep shirt on too. is 6 to 8 ft away i think he will be ok then. just because u have underlining issues-them spors aren't gonna just fly right to u-oh boy. he's 75 soon to be 76. its all in good fun till it might hit close home here.
