    I have a 2004 Tacoma 4X4 6 cylinder. I was thinking about getting a used Snowbear to do my driveway. I have a 100 yard straight driveway with a turn around. I figured I would just drive straight down backup move blade and go down driveway again.

    Is the Snowbear easy to put on and remove? Most important to remove as I would do driveway and then remove before going to work.

    Any other comments about this plow are appreciated.

    Tired on using ATV to plow.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I've got a snowbear on my cherokee and i like it. Snowbears do have to be flipped side to side manually but that hasnt bothered me too much. mine does a fine job. My driveway is as long as yours and i can clear it in just a few minutes. I've found the only problem with snowbear plows is they dont have any down pressure for back dragging the snow away from my garage door. been thinking of how to solve that but havent found a solution just yet. Unhooking it is pretty easy. Just 2 pins and unplug wire hookups. Alot of guys look down on the snowbear plows but i've had nothing bad to say about mine. Thumbs Up
