Floor Mount Keeps Snowplow Controls Handy
When Craig Nelson’s dealer installed a snowplow on his F150 Ford, the control switches were installed on the floor. Using mostly salvaged parts, he soon had them within easy reach.
“I didn’t want to have to bend over every time I adjusted the plow, so I raised them up on a permanent mount at seat level,” says Nelson. “I used the arm from an old satellite dish and screwed it to the floor of the truck. I picked up a 3-gang electric box at Home Depot and screwed it to small flanges on the arm.”
Before screwing it down tight, Nelson added JB Weld to the union to reinforce the joint.
“The snowplow switches fit the 3-gang box perfectly,” he says. “Once in place, it is easier to reach the controls than it is to turn on the radio.”
