i bought a snow man pull plow for this last season....very well built....quality is a-1.....in my situation i had it on a blazer and it was too much weight,yes it adds some length.....with down pressure you get an excellent look when you are done.......i used it in a small developement where i plow all the driveways(25), some in tight quarters and it worked well recently purchased a skidsteer so i will be using that for these properties next year

Please advertise any items for sale in this forum instead. Thank You Dino

In our market, almost everyone has them. After using them now I know why. It is a real timesaver, both on residential and commercial. Great for cleanups, scraping hardpack, loading docks, garage doors,etc,etc,etc...

They go for around 2000--2500 bucks.

Well worth the money.

I had one on my dodge.
Mine was a daniels like the one in the pic above.
It's great for doing driveways(pulling away from garage doors) and loading docks and etc... etc...
I found that it doesn't stick out as far as some of the newer models that I've seen lately.
I'm going to make one up to put on my new S-10 for the small driveways that I do in the city.

I bought one this past fall ( Daniels pull plow)for $ 1,850.and found it great help and time saver. It's great for doing those long drives with curves in them.Just drop it while going around the curve and it cleans up where the rear tires tracked over the snow.

Four years here for me.
Up to this last year when I got rid of my dodge.
I figure it'll cost me about $400 to make one up out of scrap metal that I have laying around the shop.
Most of that will be for the pump assembly and hoses.

Hey mark
Nice to see a fellow W Michigander here. I worked (for another LC) in the GR area for 6 yrs and 3 before that at another. Have run a backblade for all. I guess I have been spoiled. So when I started my LC It was my first priority to get one.

I started plowing in the 60's and we've had them ever since.

There are other plowing technologies that will radically alter the industry that the guys in the know are keeping to themselves.
