Ingenious and solid looking fix. Wish I had a shop with welding gear etc.

Hello Geno and all,

Nicely done and simple design. I can see where my idea for the trailer tongue jacks with the round snow plow gauge feet would not fit very well for the snow caster.


With my snow blower set up; I am happy to report the Gates Series 1 A116 V belt survived the first use of the John Deere with the 47 inch snow caster.

Glad your v-belt is good to go. I am not sure on your idea?.. I opt for a quick set-up for little time I had to work on it. I hit it just right as we had couple warm days now cold again. Time will tell if it works? I did use stainless steel bolt as axles and solid fiber wheels with no bearings so rust isn't an issue. Not sure I like the wheels but for now it will have to do. I was going to go with a plate on each side with two shoes m
ounted at the correct angle pending on height set.. but too much to do for now.
