Hello, ... Need some help, With DIY project.


I am currently in the Process of building a personal snow plow on wheels. Wheels, the size of the average Wheelbarrow Wheel. My Problem, that I am hoping you all can help me with, is I need the Wheels AND THE SPINDLES and the attaching points. Can't seem to find this stuff anywhere - I need the Wheels, Spindles AND the Hardware to attach it. Please help me find this so I can get My Project on wheels. Thanks so much.

Northern Tools should have everything you need.
By the time you buy all that you could have bought one just as cheap.

... I have always thought of one that I have never seen, so, I figured I will build it - And besides those wheels on that device, will bury and make it useless, where I need to use this device I am thinking of, I need way bigger wheels. But again thanks.

Do you have access to a torch, or arc welder, etc.? Are you planning on bolting it together? Need more info... Use a child's bicycle wheel- 9", 12" 16" etc. Many on Craigslist for free. Or, http://www.harborfreight.com/catalog...elbarrow+wheel

Actually I was thinking of using a simple bolting or screws to hold the Bracekets. Wheel, spindle and mounting brackets - Why is this so hard? You would think its sold as a kit of some type, But I can't find anything. ... *Frustrated*

Make this to heavy and it's going to be useless. It's hard enough to push one on snow and ice covered surface with no wheels, add all that weight and you have to over come that weight plus the weight of the snow.
The wheels are only for moving it from place to place to use it, not for when your plowing.

Thank you all for you information and advice, ... However, what I am thinking of, is not the standard Snow Plow, ... will post pics once done. As for my problem, I have decided to use 10" Pneumatic Casters as my wheels - Again thank you for all your input. ...

I watched the video and the guy was using the wheels for plowing. That will only work on a flat surface, and with the dry fluffy snow. This looks a little like a joke.
