    Transport

    The plows are hitched to the carrier with pins and moves using hydraulics. You can transport either hitched to the front or back using ball hitches. You can check out more pics at www.pwce.com.

    How is a pickup able to handle either set-up? I'm not doubting your products, just don't think the pickup would last too long...

    I replaced the bumpers and beefed up the suspension a little, but there has been no significant wear and tear on the truck. You couldn't put this on a 1/2 ton, but a 3/4 ton or bigger with 4-wheel drive does perfect. I can actually fill both blades with little effort. I even made an adapter so I can put it on a tractor or a skidsteer loader.

    You can see more pics at http://www.pwce.com/CCA.htm
    Plowing is not the only thing this attachment is capable of. You can put any skidsteer attachment or any 3-point hitch attachment to the CCA. You can also attach the CCA to tractors, skidsteer loaders, 3/4 ton or bigger truck. The CCA is only limited to your imagination.:nod:

    A pick-up can actually push a ripper? Could it load a dump truck?

    No offense Paul, but that is a monstrosity of useless iron. Its way to long for maneuvering around on a job site and limited by the power of the push/pull vehicle. A much more effective way of doing a job is using the right tools/equipment.

    Sorry to bash your product, I'm sure you put a lot of hard work into it, but unfortunately I don't see much use for it.

    Paul,
    Those are some really neat products. It is nice to view products that are built by creative minds like yours.

    Nice to see somebody pushing the envelope (of snow pushing) instead of just pushing snow. I'd like to hear how it works. (I like the pictures)

    No. Never have had any problems with the transmission or traction problems and I've had it on that particular truck for over 2 years, using it all year long. If you would like to see more info on the CCA go to http://www.pwce.com/CCAmedia.htm

    Eeeeeeek. I think they are too long, too protruding. I'd rather have the standard front plow and wing on my pickup (yes they are made available), and it'd probably be a bit cheaper.

    the thing is, is the set of wheels. It makes it appear too long. I love the snowplow and wing setup though. It'd be great on airports and parking lots by the looks of it.

    I also like the tow-behind grader blade with dumb bed. It'd be excellent on a big farm tractor or loader. I'd love something like that in the future.

    But the one with the grader blade on the front, sticks out too far it seems as said.
