Steve Neubaum's Album: IHC/Mehano Snowplow

John found this IHC/Mehano snowplow in his office. I suggested we use it on his winter themed display layout... after some improvements. The clips that held the plow to the gondola body were broken, and it needed more weight before it could be pushed reliably. And a battery powered LED headlight. And a body mount coupler. And lower the body on the chassis. Thing looked like a monster truck!

Fixed up plow
The final broduct. I replaced the Mehano snap on trucks with a pair of older Bachmann trucks. The large hole for the snap in trucks meant using a #8 (I think) machine screw to mount the trucks, and older Bachmann trucks look a bit like USRA Andrews trucks, and look better than modern roller bearing trucks Mehano used.
