    Just my opinion, but with enuf ballast for traction, it should work IF ya dont try to push a foot at a time. We have alot of 2wd DOT trucks here, that do well. They plow every 3 inches or so. JMHO AL

    Yeah, large trucks plow great. I use a tractor that is 2wd WITHOUT tire chains and wheel weights and can push up to 20 inches or so, depending on the weight of the snow..

    With chains on, I've literally pushed 38" (it was going way over the blade!).

    Most Highway/State trucks are 2wd, and many have wing plows. My town h as all 2wd Ford and International dump trucks with front and wing plows and they plow great, even on steep hills. Never get stuck.
