    did u build the plows or did u get them? the v-plow looks like it's not hooked to the tractor and just sits there. The gap u have between the two blades will give u run off. are you still working on the v-plow because it looks like it's just sitting there. I don't think many other people plow with garden tractors here. I might be getting an 18hp new holland tractor with hydraulic front and rear plows. That is more like a real tractor and not a garden tractor. if i get it this weekend, i'll send u some picts for your site.

    good luck with the plow,

    Bryan

    Bryan,
    The V-plow is attached.. the front one i made and the back one i adapted to fit the back it was made for the front for a Wheel Horse by my granpa... thanks for sending the pics if you do...The runoff, small as it might be, will be caught by the rear blade, since they work on the same lift lever. i did just finish the blade, but it's attached.

    Bryan,

    Why are you buying a tractor? I thought you were saving for a plow truck.

    Bryan told me he is thinking about selling sand mix in Greenwich. The prices he told me are much more than I get some 40 miles away in Danbury and Brookfield. He can make some real money. If not I want to hire him.

    Geoff-

    I am getting the tractor for free. the engine doesn't work, but it will include a new engine. I will get it if my parents let me. I have to work on my snapper single stage snowblower, and then if i get the tractor it'll be another project.

    Why are they getting rid of the tractor if they have a new engine for it??

    If they won't let you have the tractor, how are you going to sell sand mix?

    Geoff-
    CT18fireman misunderstood me. I said next year if i find a yard i might do it. I wouldn't this year, i have no place to store it and i don't have a loader. the tractor needs an engine, but my friend will be bringing a new(as in not the same one, it's a used engine) and i'll fix it up. i doubt i'll be able to get it anyhow, my parents say enough equipment. I might just leave it at school and work on it in tech class or after school.

    Ah,

    the joys of being a parent. When I tell my kids, no snowmobile they go out and buy it anyways. I just can't win on that battle. I wish I could say no on something, and have them not do it. Oh yea the other one, no you can't borrow the F 650 the night before graduation. The only reason they didn't borrow it was because I put the key in the safe.
