    Plow repair?


    I just bought an older ATV with a plow and am slowly going through it. Wiring issues, I can sort, light plumbing fixes, etc. Got it mostly there but I do see one issue that exceeds my capabilities - The plow itself. The wear edge bar has been on too long and the plow itself is getting worn. I can flip the bar to get more life out of it, but I suspect one or more of the bolt holes in the plow may be open. Anyone had this type of damage repaired before and know ballpark costs?

    I don't know exactly what you need, but if it requires a bit of steel to be melted into a hole and then threaded I might be able to help.

    Or find a big washer and just weld it on where the hole used to be. Don't overspend on something cheap like a plow. They aren't much gnu.

    Hell, just bolt on the new edge and skip that hole.

    Makes sense, one of these days I'll learn to weld...

    Welding is easy. Welding well is a completely different matter.

    I can weld.

    I can grind better than I can weld.

    For this porpoise, welding bad will do just fine.

    Blowhole.
