Cable Operated Snow Plow

Innlegg donn » 29 Nov 2016, 20:53

Hi to everyone again.

Had a little bit of snow and I finally upgraded my snow plow.

I fabricated a totally new subframe for the plow and a cable driven/operated blade angle adjusting system.

The front rack basically holds the adapter plate where a control handle is mounted to that moves forward and back. The handle moves a part from a French car with ball joints on it. This "bone" moves a cross tube where the cables are attached to. The cables, on the other ends, are attached to the blade itself. So the forward and back movement is converted into circular motion which moves the blade. The handle has also a lever which releases the blade locking mechanism.

The plow subframe also has a "dumb thumb" preventing system - it is a simple sliding frame held in place by springs which gives the operator plenty of time to react when the blade has stopped at the top dead center. I've wrecked the plow frame and winch rollers before but not anymore. :P

The blade can also be moved in and out since when using tracks they protrude the dimensions of the ATV considerably and they need room to turn and operate. Also the blade is completely removable which leaves the frame itself open to other applications such as connecting a front mount mower which I haven't built yet.

I hope you all like it. ;)

Here's a video from the fabrication process:
