    And it even says that it will push snow to the left or the right :eek: :eek: . I think there is a loop hole that may save you all though. It says that it will plow a path 24" wide and up to 4" deep. The homeowner will still need you for storms that dump over 4";) .

    crazymike97 welcome to plowsite, where everyone learns a little! Sometimes a little more and sometimes a little less.
    I've seen that stick plow in our local builders supply place. It looks great! I might become a dealer:D .
    If you get up to speed with that plow you can throw the snow a full 12", yes you read that right, a full 12". Then on the return sweep you flip the plow over and make your second pass and again throw the snow a full 14", yes that's correct 14", With the wind going from the same direction as your plow you can take advantage of it and gain a full 2" of additional throwing potential!
    If you haven't equipped your personnel with these masterfully crafted stick plows yet, you WILL not be able to compete with other lowballers in your area. PM me now for your (reasonably)assured reservation of this needed item.

    I was looking at one fo these at our local hardware store. It would work great for the first couple of storms but after that you can't lift any snow with it so you have to get good speed up running with it to wing snow over the banks:D

    I just pictured someone running at full speed with one of these things and hitting a crack before coming to a complete bone jarring stop. LOL

    My 13 year old son was doing Grandma's walks the other day with a regular snow shovel. He got done and said he wants a pusher shovel that angles with wings. Ahhhh that's my boy, son of MickiRig,---> MickiRig2?

    I thought of buying a new truck this year to replace my 93 F150. I had a change of mind much to my 10 year olds delight. He asked if I can wait until he gets his licence so he can have the old truck to go to work with me. Ahh aren't those little guys great?!!!

    I have a 84 Bronco II with a plow on it. I have had that truck since Jan 90. Wife keeps telling my 13 year old son " watch what he hits with the hammer, you might have to do that going to the prom" My 8 year old's even worse he got many hours of front row seat plowing from his baby seat. He got a snow shovel for Christmas when he was 3 and was happy as hell with it.

    It probably works better than a Snowbear or Snow-Way!:D

    I like Sno-Way's down pressure feature don't pick on them. As for the Snowbear......well, has a cute name, but pick all you want:D

    This is the American way! All you have to do is address a common problem with a possible solution. Making it work is up to the consumer who is always looking for an easy way out. Check out diets and hair follicle stimulators.
