MEYERS JEEP SNOW PLOW

 

I don't have any pictures of what the plow looked like when I bought it - but it wasn't too bad.  The blade has some rust spots, but not bad enough that I couldn't plow the first year.  Cylinders where shot, pivot points where shot and it needed some A-frame gusseting and welding.


         

Here is a close of of the A-frame and new cylinders after welding and paint.  I have not touched the blade or springs at this point.

 

 
One thing the blade did not have was snow shoes on the edges of the blade.  The road I plow has a rounded curb, so I wanted to position the plow shoes outboard of the plow so I wouldn't gouge the curb.

 
Here is a close up of the round shoes I bought.  I purchased them from snow-plow-parts.com.  I actually used Fisher snow shoes because they were heavy duty cast iron and had the weld on mount I was looking for.  This shot is after weld and paint.  You can adjust the height with the spacer rings and quick pin at the top.
 

 
Here is a shot after the snow shoes are welded on.  Also after a plowing.  See the snow melting from the plow face.
 

 
The next few shots are the jeep plowing my driveway.  It works great.  It moves an incredible amount of snow.  The only way to plow is no top, window folded down.
 

 
I am amazed at how much force is generated from the plow.  I am really glad I built the sub frame stout.  In the future I would like to fix some rust issues on the plow and weld my rear differential gears together.  I found you run out of traction pretty quick in the snow.
