Savage Snow Plow

Post by LLkoolskillet » Fri Feb 27, 2015 4:37 pm

Messing around with the idea, it wasnt to hard to make either.

An issue that arose was that the bucket when it gets stuck will lift the truck up, so my solution was the two chains you see hanging from each side of the plow. This stopped that lift which also in tern put unwanted stress on the servo. I would also recommend a water proof servo lol and one thats high torque. Some may say my plow angle is off but its trial and error right now. the snow I have to play with is the snowman making kind, wet and heavy.

A set up like that with some chains I'd be able to shovel my drive again lol! That's pretty cool though, be fun to play around with in the winter. I've seen quite a few of your other videos nice work.

Not sure if it was your videos I seen or not, but the snow plow idea is the reason I got my savage out and started all over again on a total rebuild and upgrade. Made my own plow also.As soon as I get finished with the build I will post pics and as soon as the flying white stuff hits, I will post a vid or 2.
