It doesn't have enough moving parts of course. I was trying to find a way to make it easy for my wife, who has some shoulder problems, to install the snowplow on the front of our TrailBlazer. The obvious solution was two pulleys mounted to the ceiling, but of course the problem then is still the weight of the plow at the end of the rope. So I started looking for counterweights to roughly balance the weight of the snow plow blade.
My first try was a plastic bucket filled with rocks. Fortunately rocks are not in short supply on my property. However, the plastic bucket full of rocks was not quite heavy enough to be an effective counterweight; it only weighed about 30 pounds I think, which still left quite a bit of weight that had to be controlled while attempting to slide the snow plow over the frame. What do I have lying around that would be easy to use as a counterweight, and is very heavy?
As you can see from the attached photographs, the obvious counterweight is a military ammo can that was of course already filled with ammunition. Rest assured, this was almost as heavy as the snow plow blade. I put a few more boxes of ammunition in the ammo can, and it is now close enough that I only had put a few rocks on top to hold the snow plow blade up in the air.
