I am missing both front "shovel things" on my old snow plows... (3469 + 3696)...

Are the parts from this new 9500 compatible?

(all links to playmodb)

New: 9500
Old: 3469 + 3696


Missing these: red and black

Replacing with these:
attachment part + shovel, light blue

Wouldn't be perfect, but better than none, I suppose.

Does anyone have this new set, and can see if those are compatible with the old vehicles? I believe those vehicle attachments were standard.

I ordered one last weekend and it should be here next week, and have the old plow as well so if nobody else gets you an answer I will have one for you when it arrives.

Thanks Tiermann ;)

Really have no use for those parts if they don't fit, right? Makes no sense that they changed that standard, but hey, this is playmobil we're talking about, so..   ::)

This is a question to which I too would like the answer! Those ploughs (plows) for old sets are hard to come by!

Sorry to say the answer is no they are not. The attachment part for the blade end is the same as in 4046

The snow groomer frame is the same if anyone needs to get one of those, but the blade end matches the more recent blades on trucks and bulldozers

I'm sorry, I didn't undertand  :-[ - you mean the new "attachment" (https://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showpart.pl?partnum=30-08-8952) doesn't fit the old ones?
(it IS hard to believe.. but...)

The old snow groomers had the same width attachment at both ends (wide). The new one has the wide attachment at one end for the snow grooming section to attach to. At the other end it has a narrower attachment piece that clips on, and then the new style blades clip onto that. This is the same set up and pieces used on the recent trucks with a snowplow attached.

New back attachment is compatible with old snowploughs. :)
New front attachment isn't compatible with old snowploughs. :(
That's what I understood. ???

Thank you. I thought that was what you meant, but I kinda get lost with the proper names.  :-[

Yes :(   

Unfreakingbelievable. But, hey, playmobil!  ::) >:(

Guess they'll remain shovel-less.
