    Thinking of buying a Snow Man back plow for both residential & commercial work and was wondering how well they hold up and what kind of break downs happen.

    I see that this was posted a month ago but I'll give you an answer anyway. I have used mine for 2 seasons now. The only problems I have had are the pump came loose from the bracket but that was my own fault for not checking it during the season. I was also the one who put it together so I can't blame anyone else. I also had a problem with getting the power cord plugged in far enough to make a good connection. I'm not really sure what caused the problem because it never happened until the second season. I just pushed them together really hard and used a plastic wire tie to hold them until I was done plowing. The next time I hooked up to the plow it wasn't a problem. These plows are a big time saver and I would recommend them to anyone. For me I use it a lot more on my residential driveways than my commercial accounts but it does come in handy for both.

    how many horsepower or truck weight will it hold up to, i have a 2 1/2" reciever do you make one to fit, i dont do many driveways but we have one machine (usualy a tractor with front and rear blade) that is only on driveways but i need him sometimes to bust ice so we could put a truck on drives and keep tractor on good money (lots) so i guess what i am asking is how much can it be bought for i need something like a 7 or 7.5' or smaller just to keep accidents less likely i would like a price not msrp

    The SUperplow does not seem to have a power angle option? I want that.

    A real time saver. Totally recommend the commercial box pull plow ( sc i think ) if you already have a front plow. You won't regret it. I am always being stopped and asked about it. It makes most other contractors take notice when I Arrive Plow and Leave while they are still back dragging their driveway. The hydraulic down pressure is awsome for getting things clean. It does take a driveway or two to get used to it, but not long. Cheers!

    A & E, the major problem I had with mine was when I cooked my motors. This happened because the hydrolic fluid that I had in them was not ment for a sever Western Canadian cold snap with -50c windchill. We overworked them with frozen fluid. Our fault.

    Pretty crappy day in those temps when the plow goes down...........that warm truck was alright up until then.:rolleyes:

    The Superplow is designed to backblade as well as pull plow. It pull plows in much the same way as your hydro-turn front straight blades. It will push backwards with the same capabilities of a straight blade just without the angle capability.
