Did you get the Rad ? I have the Rad plow & snow blowers for the eXmark Walks.

If you got the Rad, you'll need to rig an operator controlled angling rod...the manual is a Pain.

The benefit of the Rad is easy Mounting & you can pop the attachment on & off in seconds...

Is this a decent Snowblower ?

Fareway,
Do you have to put chains on your tires to use that or no?

Snow Hog Tires are necessary...JKOOPERS will likely have to buy wheels to fit unless his fit a Snow Hog...Mine Don't.. 52" / 16 x 6.50-8 Tracer HP size.

Unit w/plows can benefit from chains depending on conditions....Hydro Drive a Must.

The Real Deal from Rad....http://www.agro-tec.com/exmark.html

I'd be a Little Wary using a Plow designed for an ATV on a Walk Commercially....The Rads pop on & off in Seconds & are Easy to Mount & can be angled from operator position w/a simple mod...

You Still may need new Wheels w/the tt tire Size for Snow Hogs...

Let us Know How that ATV Plow Works !

I just purchased a plow from ETEC, a Canada based company, for my Scag Tiger Cub, it is a 5 ft. plow with an electric winch and angles as well. The 5ft. plow will allow my to anlgle the blade and not have to worry about missing any snow with the plow and running over it with my tires. I heard about the plow from my dealer, e-mailed the company and was sent a video clip of them using the plow. It is a solid piece of equipment, can't wait to put it to use.

I was talking to my Exmark Dealer and he said that there is a snowblower attachment that with the weights and all of the goodies comes to about $4K. however, he said that once activated, it is really hard to steer and maneuver.

The plow is manufactured by ETEC a canada based co.. You can visit their website at www.etec.ca/ They also sell drift guards and mountable power brooms. I didn't find any info. on the plow so I contacted Dave Moffat via e-mail through their directory and he e-mailed me the video clips on their plowing demo. There is also a 1-800 number on their web page, call and ask for Dave he was a great help in answering my questions and getting me set up. My total price delivered was $1157.00.

I had a plow on my exmark hp for 1 season. It did great with a fluffy 6 inch storm by as the season progress my driveway got smaller and smaller. The mower didn't have the power to move the bankings back. Ans if I did not get out there before the snow really started piling up I had a very hard time. I purchased a honda snowblower last year and although slower than the plow for small storms it does a much cleaner job and no snow banks. I think the plow does have its place but not if you get a significant amount of snow.
