Does anyone make a plow cover?

Discussion in 'Commercial Snow Removal' started by RJC, Aug 2, 2002.

  1. My plow is sitting in the driveway, I don't have a place to store it inside. Does anyone know of a cover (like a car cover) for plows? I have a 9'2" Boss V. Thanks, Bob in Ridgeley WV.

    I don't know of any cover built for plows. I use a Blue Poly (a light weight plastic tarp).

    I agree with Mick, a Light weight blue poly tarp works just fine!

    They are a heck of a lot cheaper that a custom made cover would be.

    I would just chain the plow down to some sort of in ground anchor though... we had some people have plows stolen right from their yard because they were in plain site, and not secure.

    There are a more than a few dishonest people around , don't ya know!!!!

    well i have and idea on the steeling part .You could get a steel rod and put it thru the ears of the plow drill a hole thru it and pad lock it on both sides.As far a the cover I agree blue poly would work well and be a hell of alot cheaper.

    yeah, inch and half rebar is a bear to cut through, but a smart thief has ways around that too.

    A hoist in the bed of a truck work's wonders. You still need to anchor it somehow to something solid.


    Sono tube full of concrete, with a heavy duty (and I mean heavy duty) EYE bolt with HD chain sounds good to me.

    The harder you make it, the less likely it is to have your plow ripped off.

    For stealing - I think somebody else suggested putting heavy duty padlocks (the kind that can't be cut with a hacksaw) through the holes your mounting pins go through.

    We just use Meyers. They aren't worth stealing...

    (Although if anyone could hijack a semi load of "C" valves they'd probably be able to peddle em...) :rolleyes:

    Better yet, just paint your plows yellow and slap a Meyers sticker on the front;)
