Any information if the CGW removed the coupler and stored it normally in winter or plowed with it in place?
The ladder and end air pipe as well as the coupler was intended to be removable for plowing and reattached in the summer for movement to a point for maintenance.
REPLY: The ladder shown in the builders photos was only temporary to allow the plow to be shipped from the factory. You are correct - in plow service, the coupler and air pipe were to be removed. See the pic we published of the X 32 in the ORANGE YEARS update.
