SnowSport 180 plow???

Anyone ever use one? Thoughts on it for personal use?

http://shop.agricover.com/product/snowsport180

I'm considering getting one to more effectively clear my parking area and make it safer for my fiancée to get to the county road easier. I don't yet have a front receiver, but I'm going to order a bumper combo for nates4x4 to add recovery points and front/rear 2" hitches.

From what I have seen, they work ok for small amounts of snow. I wouldn't use them for larger snowfalls because they become a pain to pull forward and you have to drive in reverse all the time.

Honestly, for that price, you could buy one beast of a snowblower, and not risk tweaking the unibody on the XJ.

They mount in any standard 2" hitch, so they can be mounted up front if you have a hitch receiver. I don't need a snowblower. I already have have a john Deere x300 with a 44" plow. Just looking a warmer, more effective alternative.

Thanks for the input.

Buy an old beater plow truck thats to rusty to be road legal, here they go for between $600- $1000.

I'll see what's around. Might have to until spring/summer for a good deal.

I think you'd do better to stick with the JD.
The SnowSport seems a bit gimmicky to me. My 60" atv plow weighs twice what it does and the lack of pivot or lift ability is a major handicap. I could see it maybe working okay on fresh powder that hasn't been driven on, but that's about it. Not sure what you're supposed to do if the blade fills up before you reach the end of a run, maybe just drive around the pile.

I was thinking of mounting three flame throwers on top of the plow for when it tilts

I'm going to look around at cheap plow trucks and plows under $2000. The local dealer said the bare minimum requirement for a plow is power lift/lower and manual or power angle, other wise I'm just going to work against myself.
