 I use a V nose plow on my 440 JD when I have to . It is heavy but plowing it sits on 3 shoes and all your doing is pushing it. Have a bar welded to plow to push with blade chains up easy .Blade lifts it alright but it is heavy and load it to move it any distance. The bigger  V's lift the snow higher to get it back out of your road more. When the snow gets deep you put one side into the bank and lift it up and over, a bit of speed helps if you can get it. Haveing to plow snow once or twice a day sure does slow down production. Good luck.

I found a couple of plow halves from a 8'2" boss plow. Then welded them into a permenat V at 7' wide. I then used the quick hooks on my loader bucket to hold it on.
Some one mentioned using two meyer 7' blades and welding them together. That would work good for a 10'-12' range wide V.

Iron wood,

Was that a joke about not being left out in the weather?  A buddy found it in the woods hunting a few years back.  It is pretty rusted but gets the job done.  I found those shoes at the dump and modified them a bit to make them work.

Yeah Shinnlinger,

 Your buddy put me up to this :D ;D. Na, it just looked lightly surface rusted. Usually if is left out for any amount of time it will deeply pit and even compromise the structure (I see them like that frequently).

One design flaws on the Meyers is the way the arched angles allows water in behind. If stored outside it takes it's toll.

Once a photo is in your gallery, you just go to your photo look underneath it, and copy the insertion code to paste into your post . You will see something like in this example photo;

 We have a 12 foot plow that we put on our 540 , put the blade in float position and go . It aint the quickess but will push a lot of snow . It is angled about the same as it was on the truck it came off of. A couple of passes and you get quite a wide road . Those oldplows are fairly easy to come by . Check out the local plow guys around your place . Most have a bone yard of there older stuff ....

Well, since we are on the topic of modification, I will be recieving this 4 x 4 Military TUG soon. It is 4 wheel steer, powered by gas. I need something to drag logs around so as not to tear up my 24 HP JD tractor. I will likely put a skidder style winch on the back, removable backhoe, and BIG snow plow on the front. The engine is in need of some attention, so I will likely put a 3 cly JD diesel in it. Fortunately, there is a drive shaft between the engine and trans, which should make the switch easier. It has tractor trailer size tires, so tires will be fun to find something interesting, perhaps retread mudders ;D. Designed to pull 100,000 on pavement. I believe it is an American -Coleman  Here is another one I found   http://www.oshkoshequipment.com/details.cfm?ProductID=1&pid=11 Let the fun begin.
