    can anyone tell me what a sidewalk plow is? how it is used? I was looking through one of my closest sno-way dealers website and they had a 6'9" sidewalk plow. just wondering if you guys could tell me about it. :confused:

    Ill take a stab at it even though im not familiar with sno ways product line too much. From what ive seen, its justs a smaller plow that goes on an s10, ranger or other small truck. I guess they market it that way, cause a lot of municipalities and private firms use them to do sidewalks cause of their small size.

    The sidewalk plow is smaller and has a rubber cutting edge. You can accomplish the same result with a U-edge.

    I was thinking the same thing. It's just a smaller plow people happen to use for clearing sidewalks. Nothing special about it.

    just like the others said, a sidewalk plow is just that, a plow small enough to use for sidewalks. usually around 3' or so. the apartment buildings around here have them on gravely machines, to do all the walks.

    O.K..... I'll take a stab @ it.

    Here is my guess....

    The picture has "the corners cut off" the cutting edge. This would allow you to plow @ full angle, down a cement sidewalk & not 'catch' the cut line in the concrete. It would 'ramp' over them instead.

    I have not seen that before, not a bad idea if you did a lot of cement walks.

    If I am incorrect, someone please step in.

    Hope this helps,
