My name is Don Campbell and I live in Northern Michigan . I have visited this sight many times and enjoyed it very much. I decided today to register and show some of my garden tractor projects and workshop welding projects. 2 weeks ago I took my non working snowblower, cut off the front and welded plow brackets on the front. I built a light duty 18 ga. blade and it pivots by pulling a pin. I have used it four times in wet and fluffy snow and it works great. aduelset2.jpg

Thanks , it is perfect for pushing the snow in a windrow and not have to run the snowblower for just 2 inches of snow. I never liked running a snowblower for long periods of time with little or no snow in it. That is a lot of moving parts wearing out for nothing. What a easy project and I can't get over how well it works.

First I want to say WELCOME to TBN! You sure have and eye for detail and are very crafty. The three projects are very impressive. I also think you need to get some help for the addiction to green paint!! LOL

Will you then snowblower the windrow? Or is the plow heavy enough to push it? Will you have to add weight for the bigger storms?
