Restoring your snow plow. You’d be amazed at how much just a few maintenance items can improve your plow. This applies to all brands, generally speaking. First thing to do, is replace all the bolts holding the plow together, and holding the angle and lift cylinders on. The King Bolt is very important. Also the Bolt that holds the lift arm on. Just changing the bolts alone, will reduce a lot of play and the sloppy feeling, of most used plows.

Bobcat Snowplow December 26, I recently purchased a S Bobcat skid steer loader and snowblower, primarily for snow removal operations. I wanted to be able to move my 8 ft. Fisher snowplow that’s normally used on my 1 ton dump truck back and forth between the truck and the Bobcat. I used a blank Bobcat quick-attach plate and scrap steel that I had available for the plow attaching mounts. I purchased the necessary hydraulic components to be able to angle the blade using the Bobcat’s auxiliary hydraulics.
The power angling would be initiated via a thumbswitch on the Bobcat’s right hand steering lever. Here’s what the final result looks like: I disliked the standard Bobcat straight snowplow arrangement because it made no provision for floating of the blade other than float of the main lift arms. I definitely did not want the extra weight of the lift arms applying any down pressure on the blade.
I don’t use plow shoes at all as I have found they can only make such a problem worse. I decided to make the plow hoist arm a little longer and higher than necessary as I wanted to be able to use quick attach plate without the plow to do duty as a small lifting boom note: I located the vertical position of the plow pivot points to result in the plow A-frame to be level with the ground when the main lift arms are at the bottom stop and the tilt position is about 30 degrees forward.
This is also the tilt location that puts the Bobcat loader bucket flat on the ground.
These are good ideas. I thought about a snow blower. My dad uses one on his partly gravel drive.

I had 3 pre DD blizzards and nothing but problems and failures. I love the shoebox, very intuitive. The western has a round support bar running length of plow. And the fisher has an even beefier square tube the length of the plow. You are correct and I was wrong, they are different on top. Round tube is stronger than square tube I was referring to the bottom where the cutting edge attaches.
