Thanks. Electric hydraulic lift and power angle is the way I'd like to go. As for being trivial to fabricate - that's another story. I can see having a frame that goes to the back of the tractor, but connecting to the front axle seems to require some handiwork. I'd like to keep the plow relatively close to the front end.


The frame for attaching a small Myers plow should be pretty much trivial to fabricate. Are you looking for hydraulic lift and power angle? That would be highly desirable IMO and probably easier to fabricate than a Dearborn style cable lift.

Here is a page from the Ford parts manual showing the snow plow/dozer frame developed for the NAA. The subframe is part number 1 which simply bolts to the bottom of the front axle bolster in the front and attaches in the rear using the tapped holes in the underside of the transmission case. It should be easy to fabricate something similar from some rectangular tube and angle if you can weld even modestly well.

Your plow will have lift arms similar to the ones on part number 2 in the picture. Weld some brackets to your sub-frame for attaching the plow arms to the subframe using a couple pins just like it attached to a frame on a plow truck All that's left is to weld a vertical member to the front of the sub-frame for attaching your hydraulic lift cylinder.
Enough rectangular tube and angle to make the sub-frame should run you about $100-$150. To fabricate the sub-frame drill some mounting holes in two short lengths of angle and mount them to the underside of the tractor using the attachement points i just desribed. Clamp the two longitudinal tube frame members to the angle brackets and securely tack weld them on the tractor after getting them properly aligned. Then remove the tacked together assembly from the tractor and finish the rest of the welding on the shop floor.

I would recommend against attaching anything to the axles. I would suggest using something like this Wagner loader mounting bracket on the front to hang a simple U shaped sub-frame on the front axle support. Run the arms on that sub-frame to the rear axles or one of the Ford provided bolt up points on the underside of the transmission/center section. Make the frame out of 3/16" wall rectangular steel tube and you will have a solid fixed box frame that will hold up the world with no fear of bending. Weld a couple of pins/brackets on the sub-frame as attachment points for the OEM lift arms that are already on the plow.

I wouldn't mess with electric anything on an NAA. Aside from the high cost of an electric power unit the NAA electrical system is woefully inadequate. You have plenty of nearly free hydraulic power available straight from the tractor. Plumb a directional control valve, cylinder(s) and some hose and fittings into the tractor hydraulic system and you are good to go. Use quick connects for the plow hydraulic lines and you also have general purpose hydraulic remotes for other uses.

I have an older 6-1/2' Myers plow that will be going on my 8N using that exact scheme andteh setup -n the pictures "when I get the time". I've done quite a few hydraulic add-ons for the N-series and NAA - give me a call if you'd like some more thoughts.
