  • snow blade
  • This is the snow blade I have. Can anyone identify the manufacturer?

  • Larry,
    I would say that is the dozer blade and not the snow plow. Snow plow has the same width cutting edge but is a bit taller and has rounded "wings" on the ends of the blade. Dozer usually didn't have the spring trip on it either. Ford built that identical dozer and snow blade till around 1970 or even beyond. As the models changed the push frames changed but the plows remained the same. Early ones for Ns and NAAs would gave been tagged Dearborn and would push off the rear axle with cable lift. Those for the Hundred series would push off the transmission and could either be cable lift or hydraulic lift like that one in the pic. For the Thousand series they changed the push frame again but they could still be bought cable or hyd lift though hyd was much more common.
    After about 1955 the Dearborn name was gone and everything was tagged Ford. I have the correct snow plow for my 3000. It is hyd lift and pushes off the trans.
    You can see the rounded ends of the snow plow in the photo.
    Note the height of the snow behind it.
    These Fords, from the Ns onward if properly set up with rear ballast and chains make marvelous little snow movers.

  • PS,
  • Our Ford brothers in warmer climes don't get the brutal winters like we do up here. But in winter when there's no plowing, discing or mowing to be done it's fun to get a little seat time in. I enjoy plowing snow.

  • Re: PS,
  • Yes mine looks similar to yours. I have a 3000 with fluid in the tires. I think it should do fine pushing snow or gravel. In front of the seat is a lever that goes in/out . In the in position the rear 3 points runs up and down as it should. When I pull it out the front blade goes up and down with the use of the rear 3 point lift lever. I'm in northeastern Indiana just out of the snow belt. We get some dandy snows sometimes but I'm sure not like you do. Last year I only had the 8N out twice to plow snow. Mild winter. Thanks for the pictures.

  • Blade is a Dearborn 19-2 angle dozer blade. As beargap said the frame shown in photo is 19-80. Click on the manual section to view snow plows.

  • That looks to be a Dearborn snow blade on a 19-80 frame. Nice unit, I have the same thing. I believe the manual is on this website.

  • Re: snow blade
  • I found it and yes that's what it is. I thought it was a little heavy for a snow blade but I'm sure it will move some snow. It was on my 1974 Ford 3000 when I got it this summer so I haven't used it. Hope I don't have to LOL. I have an old rear blade that is very heavy duty I used on my 8N for the past 15 years and it worked fine as long as the snow was not real heavy and wet. I have fluid in the tires and the tractor appears to be very heavy so it should do fine is we do get a very large snow.

  • Re: snow blade
  • Ok thanks. I should have looked there first. I've just done some web-surfing and haven't found anything on mine. I see a lot of snow plows guys have on the front of Ford tractors but none like this.
