    Default Snowplow for Kubota 2910

    Well I've started my snowplow project.

    I secured a 7.5 foot Meyers 4-way plow. I wanted a 6 foot plow.
    So I took an angle grinder to it with lots of cutting wheels.

    I cut nine inches off each end and ground off the structural supports
    from the back of the cut pieces.

    I welded the supports back on the plow.

    I have taken the A-frame and trimmed 10 inches off that and
    reengineered the geometry.

    I picked up the 1/4 steel today to fab the mount on the tractor.

    What is everyones thoughts about removing the two one-way hydr cylinders
    in favor of a single two-way cylinder for power angle.

    I will be using a two-way cylinder for the lift and down pressure..

    I will add some pics tomorrow.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Sounds good. I have also found a used Meyers plow and plan to make it fit on my B3030. It is an 8 footer that I will cut down to 6'. I am looking forward to see how you are trimming down the A-frame and mounting it to the tractor. As far as changing the two single acting cylinders for 1 double acting, I don't know why that will not work. I probably won't have time to get mine working this year so I can't wait to see what ideas you come up with. Good luck.

    Mounted a 7' Meyers on my old Farmall 340. Since tractor was bigger than my B2910 I did not have to shorten it. It served me for 20 years. I'm sure current owner is still using it.
    I will be keeping a eye out for your pictures. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Toolguy,

    One nice aspect of cutting down a larger plow is that
    you get the higher moldboard height of the bigger plows.

    The kubota plow is 21 inches, I think the Meyers is 24.

    I'll take some picks this morning and post them..

    Regards,
    Chris

    Toolguy,

    Here are the ends that I trimmed off...

    You can see where I ground off the end supports...

    This is the A-frame trimmed down and you can
    see how I've narrowed it up

    I will straighten it, clamp it and weld it.

    I still have to cut the tab out of one side.

    This frame will put the plow about 3 inches closer
    to the machine than the cutting edge of the bucket.

    Pardon my ignorance but how many HP is your tractor and how much does it weigh? I'm putting a 7' Fisher on my 790 Deere I'm mounting it on to my loader. I'm hoping it's not too heavy for it. I'm thinking it's lighter than a full buket of material.

    Rick,
    The machine is a 30HP and weighs somewhere around 2600 or 2800 lbs with loaded tires.

    I had a 7ft fisher clamped out in the loader. For me and this
    is personal preference, It's way too far out on the loader arms.
    The swing of the machine gets pretty long and its
    hard to get in tight places.

    But if your doing a long straight driveway you'll be ok.

    When the plow gets too big the front of the machine
    will get pushed sideways in deep heavy snow... bouncing
    off snowbanks..

    I'd rather a smaller faster moving plow.


    Regards,
    Chris
