I just finished my custom leaf plow. I designed it myself, laser cut all the parts, brake formed the few parts that needed formed and had it all welded at my place of employment. The mower mount and lifting mechanism is all made from 304 SS. The plow is all made from aluminum. I weighed it afterwords without the mount and lifting mechanism, it weight was 78 lbs. I believe this will help me out quite a bit here in the next 5 weeks or so.
