    I really don't know why you would want that. It looks to me like it raises the truck up a little, thus causing less traction. The dump bed with spreader might be a cool idea for driveways or a very small lot.

    It is for scraping the ice. I bet it would clean driveways right down to the pavement. The other advantage is that it does not stick out as far as a rear plow.

    A rear plow sticks out for a reason. That reason is so your not back dragging with your front blade, and you can get closer to garage doors with it. This blade serves little purpose other than to break up hard pack or ice. I don't see a big enough advantage for it, at least not here in NW Ohio.

    That truck/setup is awesome! I like the controller on the stick shift handle.

    I think belly plows would be pretty cool on a pickup for scraping ice, be nice if that technology made it over here.

    as long as it could be angled , and stuck out fare enough so your nxt pass would clean it up

    pretty cool in cab set-up but i would rather put a larger back blade on my truck because that little belly plow is no good for back dragging...either way that truck looks pretty cool

    That blade is not for backdragging, it's an etching blade. It leaves gouges in the hard pack and ice so it's not as slippery.

    Seems like an awful lot of button pushing just to push snow.

    i posted before i saw the video. that blade is not really a belly blade, like JD dave said its for etching the ice to provide better traction.
