I am making up a snow plow mount that will have a set of rails attach to my belly mower mount under the rear axle and have them go straight forward under the tractor and stick out approx 2 feet in front of the tractor where the plow will mount to. I will have chains coming from the hydraulic arm to raise/lower the plow. I am concerned about sideways movement, having only one set of solid attachment points at the rear of the tractor. I noticed there are two cast mounting lugs right behind the steering box. I assume these were for belly cultivators, etc. If I attach pivoting steel bars there, will the casting be strong enough to take any side load or will they snap off (and ultimately bum me out!) ???
