    I am interested in the snowman plows. Which snowman plow is that? From the pictures, I do not see a front plow. How do you stack the snow? Thanks.

    It's the 75LDA.
    I dont have a front plow, just the snowman.
    That is the trick, finding a place to put the snow. I'm lucky enough to live on a cul-de-sac so I just pull it all into that and spread it out as best as I can on the edges. It angles far enough that I can get it pretty far off to the sides.

    I paid just over 2400 delivered.

    It is wider then my bumper so I get a good view in my side mirrors.

    I have to admit I have never seen one of those before.
    I used to do allot of driveways, condo complexes. That would come in handy instead of back dragging.

    I did a little research on back blades last spring.
    I read somewhere that you can stack by pulling it into a pile and then backing up into it to stack.
    I don't know how well that would work but that is what they say to do.

    For the money why not just get a front mounted plow??

    I have the driveway super plow rear mount and it has worked great. I just pull the snow to one section and pile in reverse. I have been able to pile the snow really easy. I think the key to a rear mount is having really good snow tires...I bough the Cooper M&S...they have worked great.

    For the question why not a front mount? I get bored with my trucks and like to get something different every couple of years. I'm lucky enough to be able to get in to dealer auctions to do this. So the fact that this plow can be transfered with very little effort and zero cost sold me. Also, this plow will not beat the crap out of a truck like a front mount would.

    I attached a pic of mine. I really need to get a picture of it in action.

    We'll be getting a pull plow for next season for the simple reason that we lose so much time backdragging, then having to turn around in the street to push it all out. We'll have a combination of pull and front mounted plows so that all we have to do is back into the drive, pull the snow away from the garage or any other obstacle, then back up and push it all out. It should save a little under 1/2 the time it takes to do a drive, plus a lot of hassle of having to turn around.

    One of the major attractions to the pull plows is you have as much down pressure as you care to use. Which comes in handy to get that hard pack up its had time to set up.......Rob

    They're a huge time saver and do a better job than backdragging! We do 90% commercial and its very useful there also. I've been using one for four seasons and wouldn't want to be without it.
