Fiberglass Water Softener Tanks Hold Snow Blade Down
I needed extra weight to hold my snow blade down so I took two fiberglass water softener tanks and filled them with pea gravel. I cut the plumbing lines off the top but kept the threaded end to plug the fiberglass tanks. I filled up the plumbing holes with epoxy resin. I then welded an angle iron rack to lay them on. I welded the rack to the frame of the snow blade. A nylon strap holds the tanks on the rack. The fiberglass weights are weatherproof and can be used on other equipment fitted with the same style of rack. (Randy Reinke, Ortonvile, Mich.)
