Chisel Plow Scraper Blade"You can use any high-clearance chisel plow to make a handy, effective scraper blade for clearing snow and grading dirt," says Charles Rader, Cando, N. Dak., who used a Graham Hoeme plow to make his home-built rig.
"I fast removed all the shovels, leaving the shanks in place. Used steel grader blades were then bolted across the full width of the rear row of shanks, matching the shank holes to holes in the blades. Just above the blades I attached 2 by 12-in. wood planks. (Since the accompanying photo was taken, Rader has replaced the wood planks with 30 gal. spray barrels. He cuts the barrels in half and bolts them in place. He says they work great because they fit the curvature of the shanks.)
"No changes were made in the hydraulic lift. You just raise the chisel plow to unload. The shanks left in place ahead of the rear blade break up packed snow and dirt to make the unit more effective."
