Absolutely top notch work! Honestly, I'd be a bit scared to drive it.

That plow is blowing my mind! I can't wait to see it all painted up. You have some skills my friend! Was the plow on your wrecker styrene too?

No worries (I think). This will not be a basher when the plow rig is mounted.

Yep - all styrene, and it pushed a lot of snow with no issues. The Bruiser (Wrecker) is a workhorse too, especially in 1st gear.

Yea, I knew that, but liked the badges a lot more. I'm thinking this guy just modded the older truck with a new diesel I may change my mind though...

Thought I would mount this too. Salt spreader I made last year for the back of a Bruiser to match the straight plow. With a simple mount change it looks pretty good. These are all over the place here in the midwest during winter and the company I work for makes the motors for these.


An earlier closeup pic of the spinner using table salt.


Back to the snow plow - made a plow mount for the F350 and used some left over Axial light buckets that worked pretty good. The lift linkage needs some tweaking to get the force and distance right, but no worries. Stronger than you might think. It's all about physics. mock fitted the front grill/bumper to make sure it all fits. Looking like something now, and it snowed today!


Some mounted shots and included the hydro hoses too.
full angled setting...


V-plow setting down... Sweet


full up...


I know the plow addiction is getting stale. I'll be getting back to the truck soon. Really not much to do but sand, prime, sand, paint, detail, badges, bumpers, lights, lights, lights, ESC, receiver, new wheels ...... Love my hobby
