Cub Cadet Hydraulic Blade
It works especially well moving the snow close to a building, says the Glenville, Minnesota, man. He drags the snow backwards with the blade, then digs in 4 to 6 in. and pushes the snow away.
"It's small and gets into small places," he says.
The retired farmer used scraps he had on hand and purchased a valve body and a used power steering pump from a Chrysler car. The pump powers the cylinder that lowers and raises the blade.
"You can control it right off the seat," Anderson says.
He ran the steel through a roller to shape it into a half moon, making the blade 42 in. wide by 12 in. high.
