    Wow. I dont think I would ever try that!!
    Hurt the truck, damage the plow, bust a ram....! Geez.
    I am going to have to say this is a pretty hillbilly invention that is trying to be turned into a marketable item.

    Exactly what i was thinking as well when i watched it...... snow is at least slippery but gravel would chew the hell out of the cutter blade and god knows what else. But i guess on the other hand you cant knock it till ya try it??

    Sure, but I, for one, will not be trying it. They'll sell them though, there's plenty of a$$es for that seat! :rolleyes:

    That looks ridiculous. It looks flimsy as hell and I wonder how many they went through to make that video.

    And if you ever used it on an existing plow setup. Dont forget to drill those holes in your moldboard to mount it.

    Funny, the natural reaction for a snowplow is to trip on the heavy stuff. Well that plow is always going to try and trip against those out riggers and eventually will push themselves into the moldboard. How long do you think it will be before your moldboard is bent?

    Thats why there are dozers...

    The guy that bought my old plow truck bought it with the intention of grading a very long gravel driveway. Not to plow snow??? He said it was cheaper for him to buy my truck, use it to push around the bluestone, and then sell it and recoup the cost. I said good luck, heres the title, and dont call me if you break anything...
    Try and make a shortcut will only cost you more in the end...

    I think that's the last thing I would do with my plow.

    I like how the wheels are turned, but the truck is going straight from all the resistance. Good for the truck there. I am placing an order tomorrow. Much cheaper than a bull dozer or bob cat for grading new lawns.

    you city slickers need to live in the country,because we that live in the country have long driveways usually and almost always have dirt, this is really cool for us to have, my buddies driveway is 2000' from the road, to get electric to it he gave up a paved road for now, but it also leads to a custom built log cabin , so he has to maintain a limestone drive to wear his pavement begins, this will work good, it's a work truck and we work them harder than this anyway,

    and if you know what your drive is composed of it is alot easier than going thru boulder fields, and the wheels won't hold up either

    i would want a bar for my drawtite that would prescratch the dirt i think, like a rake imo

    its an interesting idea, and it DOES work. but its severely under-engineered and I would venture to say that almost anyone who this tool would be marketed to would own a tractor and they probably already have a dozer blade for it.

    and yeah, it would destroy my purty paint, and that ain't gonna work!!

    I've pushed gravel with my plow before LOL!! Neighbor had a tandem load dumped, and the jackazz did'nt spread it down the drive, he just piled it smack in the middle of the driveway...fricken tool. Luckily i still had the plows out and not stored away so mounted up quick and spread the bulk of it around for him to save his old back from shovel and wheelbarrowing it. Took a quick thumb on the control to try and maintain half way consistant grade but was no wear as good as what we coulda done with the skidder LOL!!

    I would'nt make a habit of it, but it served the purpose and gave me something to do for a few mintues.:cool:

    Did you see guys how great of job it does on a nice flat surface that does not need to be graded? LOL

    Who grades a drive that is that flat?
