    There's another plow that looks like SnowBear plows, and sold at Home Depot (it doesn't say snow bear though), and it's orange.

    What is this?

    Sincerely,

    Why not just go to Home Depot and look at it or ask them?

    Home Depot near me is almost an hour away. A reply on here, could be quicker.

    It's been four days with no answer. Just a suggestion- call the nearest HD.

    Thanks for the confidence, but I really don't. I haven't been to a HD in several months. I looked on their website (as you can tell) but didn't find what you're talking about. So, my best advice is to call them and ask.

    Alright.

    It's a Snow Bear plow, I'm pretty sure it's made by them. But it doesn't say SnowBear, it says some other name. The mounting is all the same, and the blade is the same as well.

    Sincerely,
    Jake

    Snow Bear Plow

    Do yourself a big favor,get that whole idea of a snow-bear plow out of your head.They are the biggest piece of junk I've seen in a long time.You will tear thing's up on it all the time,it will be no time and the money you spent on the Snow-bear will put a nice dent in the price of a better plow.Consider the homesteader(fisher)or snoway if you don't have much to invest.

    Who said I want a snowbear? I have a Fisher.

    And as for being seen, have you actually used a SnowBear?

    hey idiot it is a personal use plow if you buy to plow your driveway then it is better than shoveling and what do you need a $4000.00 plow to plow your driveway for

    No need for arguments boy's... But Richard, I do agree. Personal use snowplowing, any plow beats a snow shovel or snowblower even. It's faster and you won't burn as much as I imagine.

    I have a nice Chevy truck, it's only two wheel drive, and I want to put a very light plow on it. I'm thinking of a Snow Bear.. I won't be plowing commercially because I have a bigger truck for that. But, I'd like this 2wd truck to have a plow for my own driveway :)

    I know it's 2wd, BUT, I'd only be plowing small storms with it... and I might even put a sand spreader in the truck, to sand driveways in the winter.
