Better off using an old hot water heater tank,air compressor tank,or a propane tank (but be careful cutting it,do NOT use a torch!--drill a starter hole and use a sawsall or sabre saw)..
The 35-55 gallon drums will work, but ARE very thin & flimsy and will need a beefy frame to surround it completely,its only good to "skin" the blade with--while the other tanks I mentioned are 1/8" to 3/16" thick and only need angle iron on the top,bottom and sides,the 55 gallon will need "ribs" in between too...you CAN make ribs from cut up car rims,but why go through all that work if you dont have too??..a section of a 275 gallon home heating oil tank is a good choice too,they are 3/16" thick..I have seen some nice plows made from large diameter pipe cut in half too..thick and heavy enough to need no reinforcing at all,just a push frame..
well being a noob to tractor implement construction I figured some pictures would help. I'm no stranger to fabrication but I was hoping for a little more. possibly angles, bracing, means of raising, lowering, etc.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

:MTF_wel2: Tonto. Make one like Tractor-Holic and jayvee43 said and your tractor should handle it. :goodl:Getting past the shovel method- any ideas for a dirt/snow mover my 19.5 Craftman can handle ? Saw a movable blade with hand adjustments but lost the picture
