6' Snow blade earned 2 wings now and I do really love it.
I was working on this Wings for a while but had a few incidents...:eek:

A couple days ago, I finished all the mechanical work done on this wings. but electrical work hasn't done. 'cause, I couldn't find right wires for it. and I had to clean the snow yesterday without control of these wings... and I've bent wings a bit. Then, I finished electrical wiring yesterday afternoon with household wires...:eek: and cleaned snow again today and I broke the hydraulic cylinder arm's connector...:eek::eek:

And then, I found my snow blower's upper universal joint is missing...:eek::eek: later time I found it on the parking lot and had to fix that stupid upper joint. It was held by the 2 bolts and it came loose. I know it was stupid design. and I had to cut off the length of universal joint to make better fit.

Any how, I've design this snow blade wings to move almost 150 degree but I found never needed it and made cylinder too weak. so I had to modify again to make only what I need for. 90 degree Forward to Flat.
I really love it. No more windrow, 8' wide snow blade means more quicker job done~~~:D

Joe.

Well Joe I have to say that is a pretty cool design. I've never seen a set up like it. You'll have to do a short video when you get some snow. I would enjoy seeing it perform. Enjoyed seeing that and thanks for posting it. :cool:

I think the wings are a fantastic idea! You now have a "snow/plow/pusher" at you fingertips as you require. I hope the wings keep you from getting into a "flap".:) I'm sure they will. I've seen your other posts about the plow itself and admire your efforts. Keep up the great posts.

Thank you.

I wish I had a bit heavier gage on the sheet metal wings...:eek:
My favorite welding guy didn't have it in stock at that time. So, I'm going to take it to him some day add some support beam to increase streangth later time.;)

And that control arms and so on, idea came from Radio Control Airplane stuff.
I do actually have a Wing from R/C club.:D Although haven't flown a quite a while though...:D

It works good now. but I still have to modify a bit more to better control and get the right wires for that hydraulic pump motor.

Thank you.

Joe.
