    Newb question warning! Do any of you pull the airbag fuse when plowing? I only have the plow for small personal use, but I kinda fear it popping in my face.

    Thanks

    If you hit something hard enough to set an airbag off, you are gonna need it.

    Setting off the airbag on some vehicles is harder then you would think. Leave the fuses in place.

    Correct. You would have to fold the front bumper pretty good or roll the truck.

    Welcome to the forums. Not sure what type of truck you have but..... If you have traction control, turn it OFF while plowing. You can transport your plow with traction control on. This is unrelated to air bags but I wanted you to have that information.

    First IMO you'd be stupid to plow without wearing shoulder/seat belts.

    Second; As was said if you hit something hard enough to pop the bags you're going to want them.

    This didn't set off the bags.

    Why? Haven't worn a seatbelt since I started. All it does is beat you up and bruise you
