Looking for small dirt plow...
...i can hook to the tow bar on the back of my 98 Cherokee. i'm interested in plowing or scraping up dirt to clear grass to make walk paths or maybe even turning up soil but not to deeply. (I'd go back over with a tiller.) I'm low with small tires. What i'm thinking of is maybe a 12-18" slanted blade that presses shallow into the dirt via gravity...anybody ever heard of such an animal? thanks!
Actually I have seen this kind of thing done, only with another kind of vehicle. I believe they call them TRACTORS. You may have heard of them. All kidding aside, if your XJ came with the Massey-Ferguson option you should have no problem tilling the corn fields with it. Ok now I'm done joking. You have low range and your Cherokee could pull a house down if you rig it properly and get enough traction. So why not ? Just be careful not to overload it weight wise as in down force or tongue weight. Just because they will pull a shiotload doesn't mean the springs will support it.

There is a reason why there are hydraulics on tractors for plowing. It wasn't so you could raise it up and down, well its partially for that, but its for keeping the plow at the same height while plowing. Same reason why planes have hydraulic ailerons that do the same for flying.
