    I got my snowbear poly for christmas (thanks kids) and put the thing together yesterday and 5 inches of snow here last night!!! I have to admit, i was thinking of using this thing for odd jobs and extra cash but now I know what you pros are talking about. It was great for my 3 car driveway and half my cul-da-sac and when my neighbors catch on im sure ill be doing a few of them in the coming weeks but thats about it. like i said, it works good for personal use but there would be no way you would do this commercially with the snowbear. enjoy the snow -

    Have had my (metal) snowbear for 5 years now....Got to love this rig.

    Using it on my 94 2wd pickup with outstanding results.

    I have read many message on this board bashing...big time...the snowbear... I feel it is quite unjustified. It works. It pushes snow. Easy to assemble, install, remove. Quite inexpensive.

    I thought it was going to stink..2wd pickup and all. But was quite impressed, after installing chains on my rear wheels. I recently (last year) installed snow tires (without chains) and it works quite well. The only weight in the bed is the 4 all season tires I took off for the winter.

    But it saves the day. Every time.

    12+" of wet heavy snow last night here in Boston...worked like a dream.

    Is the SB as good as a Fisher, etc. Probably not. But then again..not many fishers (if any) will mount on my 94 2wd CHevy truck.

    But the SB is far better than a snowblower or by hand.

    I would buy another in a heartbeat.
