Default Unscheduled shop project

Some years ago, I built a rear blade for my 35 HP tractor to use for snow clearing and assorted other jobs around the yard.

I used large diameter line pipe for the mold board, and assorted other "inventory".

It worked great for years, but the arms that run back to the swivel are a weak point as I knew they would be. The inevitable happened last time I cleared the yard. I hooked onto a piece of broken concrete firmly frozen into the dirt. The weak point let go.....
