    I dont have any photos. The only other brand I know of thats a major brand is Daniel's; which a lot of people like. They are dependable and sturdy-they are the common type of pull plow-meaning it doesnt trip like the snowman.
    Some of the shops around here custom make their own. My only word of advise would be to stay away from the models or custom ones that attatch only to your one hitch receiver. They might look nice and easy but I've seen so many of them not hold up to the true rigors of plowing. The Snowman models we have are the 80rs, which use two mounts to the towing receiver. We have had no problems with this, but I see that Snowman has updated the mounting mechanism for this year.

    It's a Snowman. 75 LDA. I got it last year. It works OK for small to medium snow events. Problem is that I don't use a front plow at all. So if you don't get melting during the winter or you get a large event, you run out of space to throw the snow. Your banks get too high on the sides of the driveway and you start to close yourself in.

    I have a subcompact Kubota tractor with a loader on the front. I eventually had to take it out and push back the sides and piles last winter because of all the snow we got.

    As for the chains, yes the truck is virtually unstoppable with all 4 chains on. This photo was taken just after the huge snow event we got in CT last year. You should be able to see the 24" or so on the flat roof above the garage. For 6" to 14" I usually only use rear chains. I haven't started plowing this year (today). I think I'm going to run 2 chains today. Looks like about 6" to 8" out there.

    Ebling's are even stronger.

    Do a search for B&B, Ebling, Daniels, Snowman, there's one other who is a sponsor but the name escapes me. Plenty of pics.

    Triple L has a whole thread with his truck(s).

    Good luck.
