Plow fitment

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if a plow off a 312-8  will fit a c-160 without a lot of work I would think it would without any problem but would like to be sure before I buy it.  Thanks

yes, as long as it is a long frame plow

Yes. Both are long frames. I'm not sure but there might be some difference in the angle adjustment lever but that would be an easy modification. :)

I agree the angle adjustment lever may need some mods but that should be it. I recently picked up a late 60's 54" blade and it fit great on my '78 C-161 but I had to use the lever off my 80ish vintage 42" blade.

I'm guessing, the 54" blade fit right on your existing frame? 54" blades seem short in supply, even somewhat rare.

Guess at 70, getting lazy, I siill have one blade on a Horse. Great reasoning, "A Horse for all seasons."

 

If, IF I ever find a 54" blade locally, I'm going to jump on it. :handgestures-thumbupright:

 

Might be me but, when I think "plow" I think "turn earth." Snow, push dirt, level driveway, "dozer".

It would have fit my 42" frame but the 54" came with the complete frame and setup. All I had to do was swap the lever to clear the foot rest on my 161. 

 

 I plan to put the lever from the 54 inch on my 42 inch blade because I believe it will work well on my older tractors they don't have the full foot rest.  The 54 inch will only be used for snow since I am freshening it up a bit and I will use the 42 inch for dirt and gravel if necessary.

 

I added a few pictures below of the 54 inch unit before disassembly and a couple of the frame only after cleaning and painting. The blade and springs are being sandblasted so I haven't gotten them painted yet.  I also fabbed another set of blade shoes so that the originals won't need to be used and I can keep them in good condition. They don't look the same but they will function the same.
