    Looks like it handles both of them we'll. I'm surprised.

    There is absolutely NO WAY that will work long-term. And don't the Raptors have the electronic steering like the other 150's? If so, how would he make that work. This guy is just asking for all kinds of problems and break downs. It's going to cost him a lot of money in the very near future.

    Even if the front end supports it, which is questionable long term, I'd like to see the frame of that puny 1/2 ton after plowing 9'-10' of heavy snow on long pushes.

    don't know why he would put any plow on that truck , its not a work truck.
    alot of money to spend on a sport truck and then destroy it with a plow

    Look at how the whole front end (whole "truck" really) drops and bounces when he is lowering the plow to the ground in the last four seconds of the video.

    But he insists it "works great!"
