Home-Made Snow Blade
I cut up an old water heater to make a 5-ft. snow blade for my 1981 Deere F-911 front mount riding mower. It attaches to an old 2-in. receiver hitch that mounts on the mower’s original deck mounting arms. The blade swivels on a big gear off an old combine, which I split in half and welded to the blade. One half of the gear is on top, and the other half below it. I drilled 3 holes into each gear, allowing me to adjust the blade’s angle by simply changing the position of a pin. A 2-in. pipe is welded onto the gear and fits into the receiver hitch on the mower. All it cost me was a couple hours of welding time. (John Blackwell, Brantford, Ont. ph 519 755-9446)
