    I haven't but I'm sure someone here has.

    I toyed with the idea myself but just chose to get the largest light materials bucket made for my loader which for me is 73". It's a huge improvement over the standard hd bucket, cause it's not only wider but taller and deeper.

    First thing that comes to mind right now is how about a used 275 gallon oil tank, cut out leaving the basic shape, reinforce as needed. depending on the size of your tractor it might be a good fit. seems like it would make an easy starting point.

    I used an old fisher plow and added to the ends two sides and some bed frame angles on top and plywood, Then used some flow cutting edge metal to make two "V' shaped brackets that side over the bucket cutting edge. I use two small chains on the corners back loosely to the top of the bucket.
    It works great can really build up a load .If your goal is to push mostly forward its a good idea.Some resistance in turning it when it get packed full.

    I rigged up a couple of 2X8's bolted to the loader bucket a couple of years ago and it worked fine except I missed the loader for piling the snow.

    I built some wings a few years ago that could be clamped to the sides of my loader and extended out about 24 inches. The idea was to prevent the overflow and have more snow capacity when pushing. It worked pretty well but it also slowed me down because I had to be a bit careful with them. I did not make them out of very sturdy steel. Would probably work well if fashioned out of something heavy.

    List your location in your profile, there may well be a member in or near your area who knows of a plow for sale cheap.
    I know that just down the road from me there is what appears to be complete Fisher plow assembly sitting on a snowmobile trailer by the edge of the road for sale.
    We can't help you locate one if we don't know where you are.
