Very well done!
I was just thinking about the weight the other day. I'll put it on a scale some night this week. have to pull the bathroom scale out because i'm sure the kitchen scale I use for weighing my comp crawlers won't be able to handle it (max is 11lbs). if I had to guess i'm thinking around 12lbs.

Nice job with the plow. I'd like to have one of those some day too.

Wow this rig is fat! Put it on the scale fully loaded (battery, snow plow, tire chains, etc) and it came it right at 17lbs!!! No wonder I'm having issues with the slipper not holding even in a light bind.

That's a huge b**ch! I thought 12lbs sounded a little lite. She's a tank!

Have had fun with the plow but now I'm getting ready for the next winter accessory, a working snowblower. Pull a few bolts out, unplugged the servo and the entire plow assembly drops right off.

Now onto all the work to get the new attachment going. jebster's snowblower attachmemt. i will be using the 4th channel that was used to angle the blow to control the snowblower. will also use the winch to raise and lower the snowblower just like i was with the plow, although i need a different mounting setup.

Still a work in progress. It will have augers that will push the snow to the center where it will be forced into the impeller to be discharged. Pretty much the same as any 2-stage snowblower.

I I think you need more power on the blower and more radius on the blow pipe.

I think it is great, I've been showing some of my friends.

Thanks. I agree on both points. I will try upping the power. As for the discharge pipe size I don't know if I'll change the size. That would require a lot of rework. Maybe dryer snow and more power will be enough.

As for the blower I'm going to be pulling it off for the season. Got to get ready for spring trails!

Its been ages since I've had this rig with the snowblower attachment out for a run.

Still need to up the rpms of the blower motor.

Got a little more snow so decided to dust off the plow attachment.

Thanks. This was one of my first and most fun custom builds. I still always think about other attachments. The latest idea would be a salt spreader trailer. Might be a new challenge!

After thinking about it more I decided to tackle the salt spreader idea. I mocked up something that would sit in the bed. Has an auger to move the salt to the chute at the back where it will fall onto the spinner. It will need 2 channels, one to turn the auger on/off and the other to control the speed of the spinner.

I decided this would be the first big 3d printed project I would attempt. Drafted up all the parts in tinkercad and started printing. The auger came out awesome but having a y-axis layer shift issue with the large flat prints. Need to get that fixed before I finalize anything.

Now for a fix pics, including ones that show my print issue. Any advice is welcome.

I love the use of Cardboard Aided Design! It's awesome scratch builders are still around. Hey ever print the HEMET?

I love that. Cardboard Aided Design! It is my favorite way to mock things up because I'm a very visual builder.

As for the HEMTT I ended up fabricating the body by hand. At the time I didn't have a 3d printer large enough and I was very new to 3d printing. It came out fine although I could see it being better now that I'm getting 3d printer experience. Jebster's 10x10 HEMTT rollback hauler
