    I was at Home Depot tonight to see a friend who works there and guess what I saw... They are now selling snow plows. I believe that the manufacturer is Snow Bear. Really a PATHETIC plow. You have to get out of the vehicle to pull the pin so you can put it in one of three positions. It is raised and lowered by a short webbing strap and an electric winch. I believe the price was $999? Not sure how wide it was. Maybe a 7 or 8 footer?

    A new neighbor of mine had a guy plow his driveway with one of those, as if thats not bad enough he had it on a 2WD toyota, needless to say with the 13 inches we got he could hardly even push it. He kept backing up and hammering it. All I could do was laugh.

    If he takes small bites with it, it should clear a driveway..... eventually. It's strictly a personal plow and if used as such , can get the job done if one is patient and tolerant. There are all kinds of people that spin this world. Some of them feel a manually operated plow of lightweight & limited function is fine for them. Afterall, folks bought & drove Yugos!

    I would say in the case of the Home Depot plow I saw yesterday I don't think you would get half of what you pay for. On the other side of that coin I have about $2000 in my plow including the truck and I got an offer the other day for three times that amount. I have a Warn ATV plow that is built better than that silly Home Depot plow.

    Saw that same plow set up at a Lowes store on Long Island. It's definitely a lightweight; the mount up seems like it will barely hold up the plow, nevertheless pushing any substantial snowfall.

    As NJ Plowman stated, spend the money on plow services provided by a pro, or, keep it in the bank and buy the right tool for the job when ready.
