    I just got a flyer in the mail for this. Thought I would share. Whats your thoughts?

    in the right arrangment it would probably work well but a pain if you had to do it each property you went to.

    no, just no. so now i would have almost 1200 lbs hanging off the front of my truck and the weight would be even farther from the axle. not to mention how awkward it would be to drive with it.

    That would make it a little harder to see, and the police might pull you over just to check it out lol

    Pass,lol I know in PA you can only be somewhere around 41" off the front of the bumper. I never actually measured how far the plow sticks out but to add another 3-4ft, no thanks. Sorry but that just isn't a good idea imo.

    holy crap that is a terrible idea! how many times does your plow hit the ground when going over transitions? that and it would stick waaay out there and just begging to hit something with it.

    So what happens when u get to a lot with 6" of blowing snow blocking the entrance. You have to get out of the truck and take a snowblower off before you can clear a path.. dont get it at all.

    Not to mention your lights would be useless as well.
    This is just a terrible idea....looks good in theory, and nice site but I bet there are going to be some big law suits over that one.

    edit....just watch the video....hahaha, too funny

    yeah because when i get to my lots i want to run out and unload that baby before i push the snow off them. that's crazy i cant believe that they have put that much in advertising and marketing for that thing. that's why there are trying to see it for 500 bucks.... REALLY?? REALLY?

    I def don't like the idea of hanging that much weight that for off truck. In the video it shows the truck squatting quite a bit.... What about plow pump... Sure it's not designed for that... Doesn't look like it can lift it up all the way either

    This is probably my fault.... A few years ago I posted about using a ratchet strap to do that exact same thing. I only had to go a couple miles and only did it once....you do get some funny looks. lol. Been there done that...wouldn't make it a habit.

    If you are a landlord with a bad back who still would like to maintain your properties yourself then you would want this device. It has it's place.

    If there was a way to hang it off the back and lift it off the ground without being in the actual bed, then maybe.

    Turn that blower around and leave it running for push backs.
