    ive seen one...real POS...manual lift, manual angle, and cant scrape clean to save its arse (mostly because of weight-its aluminum fo you can manually lift it easily). way better off to buy a used real plow than one of these. hate to sound negative, but i wouldnt hang these on a truck come hell or high water.

    if someone is giving one away then take it I guess...otherwise a sheet of plywood stuck to front of your rig would be better...just buy a used plow or an ATV with a plow you'd be better off.

    I had one on a Jeep Wrangler. They are fine for home owner use because you can start from in the garage. If you are doing your own driveway its OK. It is very easy on the truck and you need to do no suspension enhancements. As far as how much they go for, I would get a good used hydraulic plow on CL for the same price. A hydraulic plow will do a better job, be much faster, and you will have more fun controlling it from inside over getting out and moving the blade around. Do some homework on what is the best set up for your truck.

    Youtube has a lot of videos. You see the two handles on top of the plow. Those are the only things holding the plow to the hitch. The plow slides up and down on these posts and in reverse the thing flattens out and you drag it. You can only plow forward with it.

    Looks like a POS to me.

    seems like it would be a pain to have to get out and manually angle it every time you wanted to move the thing

    It was a pain to get out and angle it. It has wings and did do a good job of keeping the snow from trailing behind. I hardly ever used the angling function. 15 minutes of plowing with it in a warm cab beats one hour of shoveling in the cold!
