    I'm glad I have a new camera, so I can share this with all of you... My wife thought I was crazy taking these pictures on our way to my son's hockey practice... But I explained that "the plow guys" on the internet will get a kick out of it... Two houses down from me, I found this and 12 hours later nothing has moved at this DIRT driveway location...


    The truck!

    What is that yellow pile of "stuff"? A plow? Have fun with that one neighbor. Maybe you should take the Toyota over and bail out that Chevy :p

    Hey guys, I'm new to this site and have been reading alot of good info. I saw this pic and had to reply! I can't believe my eyes. I have never seen a bigger POS in my life. I can't imagine what that cost to buy and why anyone would think it was a better idea than paying someone professional to clear his driveway. Some people will buy anything.

    (the following is from the link posted by t4dodge)
    "Imagine plowing your driveway from the warm comfort of your car or minivan. Our unique V-shaped plow distributes the weight of the snow, making it easy to plow in accumulations up to 17" (43cm) deep. The Driv'nPlow will work on asphalt, concrete, and gravel surfaces. It straps snugly to your car's front bumper frame, making it possible to maneuver or back up. The edge blades are replaceable. The Driv'nPlow is a patented product of Solotec Corporation.

    Driv'nPlow® Auto: $279.00 USD"

    only problem i see with the pics is looks like they tried to plow up the drive instead of down... with a 2wd S-10.

    actually it seems like it would work fine on blactop, down hill or level with the same S-10

    I think who ever that guy is should have a boot to the head for that poor excuse for a plow and thinking of putting it on a two wheel drive truck.

    It does look like a two wheel drive s-10.
    I give that guy a big WHAT THE F#$*.

    I concurr, i didnt "strap on" my plow either, but not everyone can afford a new plow.

    I couldnt afford a "new real plow" either.
    I picked mine up off Ebay from Sandusky OH. it was on a 4x4 Dakota, I have an 4x4 S-10.
    I had alot of work to do to make it work on my truck, but then again i have the tools and skills to fab a mount, and make it work.
    after all is said and done with new cylinders, hoses, connectors, eye bolts and springs, sandblasting and fresh paint im just over $1400.00

    most people can afford $279.00 USD and if all i had was a 2wd S-10 and a need to get down my drive id probably be willing to spend $279 on that "strap-on" plow.

    fortunatly i didnt have too.

    I would have gone with a used lawn tractor with a 42" blower rather than that strap on thingy :eek:
