    We have snowman rear plows and have talked about putting one on the front of a truck just to do the condo units that are so tight.

    I've seen that truck around my area. i believe he is from the N.Providence/Lincoln/Pawtucket (Rte.146) area of Rhode Island.

    That's probably the most unprofessional thing I've seen here

    I'd be embarrassed to be seen with that hideous looking thing.

    what happens when it trips? Does the front of the truck fall off?

    Its a trip edge so I assuming it will trip normally when plowing backwards... He'll just test his welds when hes going forward... lol And yes that plow is a waste but oh well he likes it....

    I think he should get a pull plow and turn it around so he can push also.

    Haha pretty cool to see something different, Not my cup of tea but I give him props for trying something different.
    Besides all the people worried about the blade triping I think hes fine , Think about how the cutting edge is facing and its angle , it will be smoother then when we hit something and the plow would just float up.

    but thats my $0.02

    Time to sit back and watch this thread take off.

    We do two condo projects with a total of 116 double drives anywhere from 25-50 ft. long. The backing up 3-4 times per drive gets real old, hard on the neck and back. Mirrors always seem to be snowy, icy, etc. Gotta make sure you get close but don't drive through the doors. We are required to use pull plows instead of just back dragging with front blades. Seriously thinking that one of our snowmen pull plows on the front of a truck might be the ticket. Then we could back over mailboxes and light poles instead of bumping overhead doors! Ya, might have to get on that idea soon.
