3 point hitch snow plow blade

We have an old Massey Ferguson (still trying to figure out the year and model through all the rust) and we found an old snow plow blade for a truck that is just as rusty. Anyway we are trying to figure out a way to convert the blade to fit on the 3 point hitch. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start or some webpage links that would be usfull to me? Thank you for your time and I look forward to any replies.

Not sure where you're at, but here in snow country (Northern WI), a good snow blade mounted on the front will clear 10x the snow as a 3pt back blade will.

Reasons are, taller moldboard, better angle (most 3pt blades go to about 30', plow blades go closer to 45'.

I'm guessing that this is an old pickup truck plow? If so, the best way to adapt it would be to build a subframe so it attaches to the rear frame, where the load on a tractor was designed to be, instead of in front of the engine, which on a lot of tractors (not just Masseys), was only built to hold the radiator.

My thoughts,

I think the other guy is right - Ditch the old blade and get a rear mounted blade.

A blade on the 3 point is useful for many other things besides plowing snow. If he spends a lot of time welding up a snow blade, that's all he'll have - A snow blade.

But a rear mounted blade is good for dirt work, levelling gravel driveways, etc.

Unless you're very determined to do it this way, it might be much easier and much less expensive to sell the snow plow blade and buy a 3point blade (new or used). Just a thought.

My hubby is pretty determined to try this himself. Since he got the tractor he seems to think he is a handy man farmer now. LOL. I will run it by him thought to see what he thinks.
