Alan's Homegrown Plow Dollies
It's done up in 1 1/2" x 2" x 1/8" angle. Two pieces about 5'
long for the moldboard to fit into. I had to space mine further apart to
accommodate the urethane edges. Three other pieces welded into a squared off "U"
for the A-frame to rest on.
When I made the first ones I had planned on just blocking under the A-frame with lumber and I built them to accommodate that. Since the I had the chance to get the jack stand kits that Sno-Way has, and had to add some angle to carry the piece of lumber to set the stand on. The later ones have that built in.
The casters are 3" dia. wheels and all four swivel. They used to be available from Northern in packs of 16 for right around $50. Cheap wheels! I just welded the plates to the framework, with the load they are carrying there was no need to add anything to support the casters. Seems like these are rated for 200-250 lbs each.
In use. This one is carrying a Sno-Way vee plow. Now that I've got the floor smoothed up a little it is So handy to be able to dismount a plow and push it aside if needed. Then simply roll it to the truck when you want to put it back on. No more jockeying the get things lined up right. It's also easy to store them in the summer, roll four plows into a hollow square with the A-frames inward and you can stash four plows in roughly an 8 x 9 foot space.
