A SNOWPLOW FOR THE CRITTER
January 16, 2010
BEFORE - the back is rather plain and the engine crew has no rear view.  That
red piece under the "2" is a keyed battery disconnect switch that I installed
today to replace the old knife switch.  The wires are there because I'm charging
the batteries.
AFTER - new rear windows have been cut and the edges sanded and
painted. The Critter is propped up on boards to free the wheels for checking
and lubricating the mechanism.  It fits the trailer nicely - snug as a bug in a rug!
Lately it seems the Goat and the Caboose have been getting all the attention.  But the
Critter needed to come up to the garage for a battery charge, so I did some work on it
while it was here.

DISCONNECT SWITCH AND REAR WINDOWS FOR THE CRITTER
DECEMBER 12, 2009
Paul fashioned a wedge plow out of two old snow shovels and had it welded
together by Alan Burdette of Shane Custom Welding in Havre de Grace.  
Finally today I got a chance to design and build a mounting system that is easy to
install and remove.
READY TO INSTALL - The basic plow consists of the welded plow front
screwed onto a wedge-shaped piece of plywood with two arms that fit on the
Critter's sides.
READY TO PLOW - The plow mounts to the Critter with just two screws,
one on each arm. This is the original solid mount.  I'm working on an
adjustable mount.
