We see different changes happening in our country in different seasons. Its changes are seen more in nature. Especially in the winter season, we see all the leaves of our trees fall off. When backyards, roads, and canals filled with tree leaves, various materials are needed to clean it.
How to make a Leaf plow? It is one such tool with which we can easily clean our yard. Most of my leaves for the year after blowing and raking, I got the way to add a plow to the front of my new zero turn mower. I just used the mower to plow some leaves with the cutting deck lowered.
However, at this time, I was somewhat limited in usefulness. I hope anyone finds this Intractable useful and finds a good idea. So, get started:-
How to make a leaf plow
There was made for a Hustler Raptor whatever I assume it would be easy to adapt to other zero turns or perhaps a forest tractor. After just some initial testing, I feel so happy with these results.
Step by steps like an instrument, base location, border support, Tool Border, Rolls, Plywood Face Parts and Healthy, High Instrument and Finished, Now I discuss it:-
Step 1: Instrument
At first, I decided to use wood as the primary material since it is lighter and cheaper than steel and very easy to work.
- Frame base I used to make the Steel angle
- Frame use 2*4 and 2*5 wood
- Rotate caster wheels.
- Wire net used to cover large open areas.
- Plastic scenery margin formed the bottom sweep.
- Facepieces are 2/6″ or 4/9″ plywood crumbs, and I had to lie around.
Step 2: Base Location
The mower had two attach holes available for attachment of front burdens that hostage balance the rear bagger system. This hole in the front frame section would be my supplement point.
I used a wood block to fit inside the channel border and a high, loud point bar with a rubber washer to protect the frame iron washer and nut. It left two bolts to attach the Plow.
Step 3: Border Support
At first, I cut and linked two pieces of 1 2/6″ steel angle to create the mount that attaches the plow frame to the mower frame bars. Dumps drilled to accept wood fixes at the underside of the mount and larger holes for carriage bolts at the borders.
Then this section of position cut away to avoid the match with a flash on the mower border. Two sections of 2*4 lumber were secured to the steel angle mounts to act as forwarding weapons to connect to the main plow border.
Step 4: Tool Border
This plow frame contained 2*4 straight members and 2*5 upright members. Consuming this table adjusted to the correct height, and I cut away joining channels in the 2*4s and 2*5s and open them to each other temporarily with wood rivets.
In Short angled, 2*4 pieces create the Plow ends. This Plow stops secured to frame horizontals with three-cornered plywood pieces.
Step 5: Rolls, Plywood Face Parts, and Healthy
Now I started with 2/6″ plywood but had to difference the bottom plywood to 4/9″ and make the three-way relationship larger to mount the wheel moves. The wheels are 8″ air wheel move from Harbor Carriage and cost $15.00 each. This wheel secured with 6/18″ bolts.
Plywood face panels were secured with wood fixes to the horizontal and vertical frame members to provide cruelty. This center slice of the groups was drilled and cut out to lessen the Plow.
A flexible landscape border was fixed to the bottom of the plywood panels to act as a curve that can outline the irregular ground surface. This wire mesh added over the plywood boards.
Step 6: High Instrument
Now an eyehook was fixed into the top plow frame member and attached to the eyehook and a wooden bar to acts as a lifting method. A wooden foot control added which axle’s wooden blocks under the Plow mount weapons to hold the Plow off the field.
To lift Plow for travel, pull back on dowel Para cord to lift Plow off the ground, push foot control forward to axle blocks into place, and lower Plow mount arms onto blocks.
In lower Plow for plowing, pull back on pin Para cord to lift plow off wood lumps, pull foot control back to pivot blocks out of the way, and smaller Plow to the field.
Step 7: Finished
Just testing the Plow around the yard, I found it was quite easy to plow 4-5 feet high piles of leaves. See my process below for a walk around and turn in action.
Pros In this Plow
- We clean our outside and field very nicely.
- After plowing, we fix up our leaves in a fixed place.
- In the winter season, there are lots of leaves, and I burnt it.
- In my machine, it saves more electricity.
- It’s easy to handle here and there.
Cons This machine has some problem like
- This plywood is not suitable for the rainy season.
- It is not right for the child if they try to start it. It is dangerous; they become injured.
- When this wood needs water, it will ruin the wood may rot.
- It’s not easy to clean up this structural Plow.
- Putting it inside the garage wastes a lot of space.
I would like to say How to make a leaf plow. It’s a little wrong; there are many benefits. It is one of the most useful things we use every day.
Impartial looking at this from a mechanic point, I give this hydro’s two years, maybe three, then it will start to see one side slowing and not keeping up, then it will just break overall, so good blessing and thank you.
