    Sorry, but I gave up on my snowbear. I purchased a new one back in January and I thought that it would suit my needs. After two snow events plowing my drive and 2 rental units, my plow started sherring off bolts and the mold board started to peal. I cut my losses and found a steal on a complete snowdogg only 2 months old. I paid about the same for the snowdogg as I did for the snowbear.

    I hope your snowbear holds up well with everyone else.

    Sorry yourr experience was not so good.

    I beat the everliving **** out of mine and it has held up great. It has a slight bend and the paint is no longer nice but it is a plow that is used in wet saly conditions.

    I've only used mine used snowbear blade for about 10 hrs(god only know how many hrs is on it) but I'm loving it. I was afraid to use it the first time because of the "personal" label but like h8to wrk I've already abused it and i'm amazed by it. Still perfect, no bends. Mine is older so maybe stronger then newer ones, but I think as long as you dont overtighten tip springs or hit solid ice piles they are great if you dont mind getting out of your truck to angle.
