    Stopped at my parts supplier a few days ago and they had 2 H2 Hummers with fisher X-blades freshly installed on them. Was way cool! Mounts were custom made i was told and very pricy$$$. I wish i had a camera.

    The H2 is just a glorified Chevy Avalanche. I don't see why custom mounts would be required. I would think they should be readily available? Regardless, the H2 does not impress me.

    Now the H1...That Hummer is based on the military HMMV. I would not complain one bit if I had one in my driveway. (besides the fact they use GM engines...) :D

    (C'mon...I'm a Dodge guy...I want a HMMV with a Cummins!)

    Up near where I live a guy has a black H1 with what looks ot me like a 9 foot fisher plow on it! I did a doubble take the first time I saw it :eek: its definately a serious piece of snow removal equipment.

    I want to put a POWERSTROKE in a H1, a nice V-plow should do the job.

    Theres a guy in the area with a western plow on his H2, been watching for it, wanna take a picture. Guy up the street from has a H2, they are neat, but are you acctually going to go off roading in a $60,000 truck....uh nope. I've noticed a few X-Blades popping up on some trucks in the area.

    Maybe I am not thinking straight, but if I can ever afford a Hummer I am not going to put a plow on it, I just have to look out the window at my fleet of dinged up plow trucks and wonder what a Hummer would look like in the middle of them all dinged up as well.....:(

    Thats kind of what I was thinking. A plain jane H1 starts at $80k last I checked. I could buy probably 3 new 3/4 ton plow trucks for that price, no way will i put a plow on something like that. It would be PIMP but not practical. Ever see the movie "Out Cold"? See the blade on the Dodge Challenger hot rod? ROFL Kinda how I see a plow on a H1.

    Personally, I don't see why anybody would be stupid enought to put a plow on any kind of hummer.:rolleyes: Not interested in the avalanche eaither. Just my opinions.:waving:

    The H-1 is 10 times the machine the H-2 is.

    They'll go anywhere, and I mean anywhere, except where it's narrow.:nono:

    Exspensive to operate though, parts are outragous, and they don't get the best fuel miliage.

    Not that you're likely to break anything on one, except maybe engine belts. You could bust a quarter panel, if you find anything that's tall enough to hit.

    I was watching the news this morning after we finished plowing for the night. They showed plow trucks in Chicago exiting a just plowed parking lot.The last truck out was a H1 with what looked like a Myers on it. guess there's more then one H1 with a plow in this country.
