Zim Bob,

You mentioned the Blackline plow. It was one of the plows I considered but ruled it out. Here is why. First, it was twice the price of comparable plows!! It is a neat plow with its own actuator that applies up and down pressure - but here is the catch: When you lower the plow there is no float position. It does not hang on a chain like a typical pickup plow. You set the plow position with the actuator and it stays there. Sometimes the plow will pull off the ground because of terrain, and sometimes it will dig and take weight off your front wheels because of terrain. If the world was perfectly flat, it might be OK. My world is not flat, so I need a plow that floats. I need my front wheels on the ground for traction. When the terrain drops off, I need the plow to do the same and scrape the snow away.
