Did you see this to carry your snowblower?

    how have i never seen this before! what a revelation! AN EPIPHANY EVEN!!!

    545 for some angle iron, expanded metal and what is probably the most expensive part of the whole thing, reflective tape (that crap is insanely pricey).... the snow industry will never be the same. neither will your blower after you run it into a curb or something. I am, to say the least... in awe!

    edit: 545 and u have to drill holes? By drilling just two holes in the top of your plow,

    edit 2: holy moly! When The Lift Saver is mounted to your plow, it protrudes as little as possible because it actually sits inside the curvature of the plow (what, the 3 inches deep in the curvature? yeah, barely sticks out at all). The sides are also reflective to let other drivers know that it's there. (thank god!)

    just what i need another 200 lbs hanging off the front of my truck... that thing looks stupid, however looks like it would work well for commercial guys who have a big salter in the bed with no room to fit the blower... just annoying if you dont need the blower for that certain account, you still need to get out and f around with it in the middle of a snowstorm, NO THANKS

    You'd be better getting one of the ramps that fits in reciever hitch. It wouldn't work with any salter.

    It'd be cool to see some guy with a big blower on one of these hit a deep guttter or big bump and all that weight hanging out there cause his full trip moldboard to trip and dump his blower right in front of his moving truck.

    :laughing:loI I imagined just this. :laughing: but with the hinge pins on plow shearing off & whole moldboard & blower go under your truck, destroying everything you can imagine under your truck as well as your frond end.:laughing:

    You should tell us how good it works after you try it GV

    How come his pump will lift all that and mine seems to struggle lifting my plow only. Definately alot of weight really far past the front axle.
