Has anybody solve the problem of this plow not being able to rotate very much? I have a gravel domed driveway and I can't get it to rotate enough to clear the corners.

I don't know what you mean by clearing the corners.

On uneven terrain if you are looking at the plow from the front of the tractor I need it to rotate clockwise and counter clockwise about 10 degrees. If you are plowing an uneven road the skids shoes will try to dig in on the high side and not clear the low sides of the road.

Unless I am missing something, it sounds like the plow is so much wider than the tractor that they are running at different planes/angles.

You might just have to make more passes. Plow the crown of the road first and then make separate passes on each side slope.

Angling to plow less might also help as they do have a tendency to dig in at one corner at maximum angles.

The plow is a 6 foot. It is only 1 foot wider than the tractor, 6 inches on each side. Since the blade sits forward of the front wheels if does confront the same side pitch on the road that the rest of the tractor sees. Since the road is domed (higher in center) the edges of the road go unplowed.

You have a tough problem to contend with. After a while the linkages will probably wear in or the holes will become slotted some from wear so it won't be as bad but that is not the answer.

I am ASSUMING it is attached to the loader? If so why not just tilt the bucket curl until plow is leveled.

But if you has a really high crowned (domed) road no straight blade is going to get it all in a couple of passes.

Sounds like the tractor is driving with one tire on the other side of the crown so the blade angle isn't the same as the crown. A shorter blade, wider drive or a mount with some lateral float would fix it, but those aren't really solutions at all. If all tires are on the same side of the crown, you might check to see if the loader mount is level, or maybe the crown angle isn't consistent.

Our gravel drives stay frozen all winter and I try to keep snow pack on them. My solution might be just accepting that the pack along the sides of the drive is going to be thicker than in the centre. Once the angle of the crown is changed by pack it won't get any worse. Don't know if that'd work for you or not.

I am thinking of moving the whole plow mechanism forward and having sit of a round piece of steel so that it can tilt side to side. It is going to have to be a pretty beefy piece.

I mentioned something about float earlier but I got to thinking that maybe appreciable float might give indeterminate results. It might dig in one side if it hit a bump on the other or lift one side rather than clear--that sort of thing. The idea seems interesting to try though. Seems like there may be a role for hydraulics here.

If all circuits are tied up, maybe something like discussed on the recent 'hydraulic top-link' thread may be useful. In the application, the top link cylinder sides are connected together through a ball valve, which holds the angle when it's closed. Seems like a pretty good idea. The cylinder is connected to the system periodically where it'd be changed and any air expelled. Six-way dozer blades sure are nice.
