New Front Plow/Back Plow Combo

For those who want the advantages of a back dragging plow with buying/building a rear plow:

The new Hiniker C-Plow "covertable" switches from conventional front plow to back-dragger with the flip of a switch.

--Thought some would like to know--

i haven't sean a picture of this plow, so this statement has no realy fact behind it.

I just think that when you design a plow, to do do different jobs, there may be too many moving parts, and too many weak links in the design. Thus resulting in more breakdowns. This is pure opinion, not a fact by any mean.

Arctic (based in Ontario) makes a pull plow we're going to check out tomorrow or friday. Since we're emphasizing full-service to our residentials next season, we expect to have more driveways to plow. Other than seeing it on their website I know nothing about Arctic pull plows...we are curious though. Daniels doesn't have a website I guess, and I haven't heard of them up here in Canada.

I saw a brochure on the Hiniker C plow. Looks to me like you could tear hell out of it if you snagged something while backing up. Also there not a lot of room under the wishbone and the part of the plow that doesn't flip-flo to carry much snow. That and the foine endorsement from John Parker makes it real easy for me to stay away from Hiniker.

hinky dinky plows

from what i hear, the forks bend easily, the mounting of them isn't too great and the c-plow looks like it wouldn't see one season on use.

<b>Ed Altheide</b>- welcome to the forum. it's nice to finally have someone involved with making snowplows. one of my friends is a distributor for them. just wondering why in your ads you show them pulling gravel?

I have seen the pictures of the New hiniker plow, although not seeing it in person, i am curious of its strength and reliability. I did have a route of many driveways and used a western 7.5 pro uni-mount and used it as a backdrag. It stunk like we all know. We now have in development a bolt on system to the uni-mount which turns it into a DOWN-PRESSURE system. I have used it personally for one season with satisfying results and doing further R&D.Good luck to Hiniker. #1 PT.

Also if you look at the pictures. It looks like someone has shoveled the snow where the trucks tire sits. This allows the unit to back drag better. I wonder how effective it would be with out shoveling the place for the tires.

hiniker plows look very poorly constructed, i would expect theat the first big storm would mess something up in the birdsnest of parts they have to move the sucker.....myself i wouldnt touch one with a 10 foot pole!

Anyone know of a blade that actually is a back drag blade w/a trip that will mount in a standard plow frame on the front of a truck.

Thanks for the welcome! A snow removal contractor for 15 years, I live for snow!

The plows are tested and built to work in gravel during the off season. The picture was taken during testing to show durability.
