Guess they had the top down so there wouldn't be too much lift on the rear, to get more traction.
20 horse power indeed! It looks a little ambitious to me. Maybe he has a Ruckstell or an aux. transmission to gear it down so he can chew what he bites off.
I don't think there's any way those little tires would ever get traction to move that steel once it hit the ground. My guess the photo is set up.
That would work well for clearing drifts, provided they are not too deep or too close together. 20 horse power will do amazing things. We have had snow drifts that would stop a 20 ton 150 hp road grader with a V plow though.
Yes but, it's the 83 ft lbs torque that matters.
I wonder if it's connected to the front axle
That V-blade is bigger that the blade I run on my 79 Scout. It looks to me like the V-blade knocks the top off and the back blade does the finishing work.
Any way you look at it, that's a lot of work for the T motor and chassis. Even with the chains, I can't see it going very far in a moderate to heavy snow. I can't tell if might it have the four-wheel drive acc. No chains on the front would make it hard to steer if you are only using one side of the v.
Over 30 years ago the neighbor had a V-plow about that size.I had a WD Allis with a loader and we mounted the V-plow to it.I also had a WD-45 with a front hitch and we ran a push pole between tractors.Chains on both tractors and we ran in road gear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Exciting to say the least but it worked! I have doubts the poor model T!!!!!!!!!!!! Bud in Wheeler.
I can't see any bracing for the rear blade on the left hand side of the car. Without bracing there's no way it would work!
I'm voting with Will .....Photoshop!
No apparent means of raising the blade.
