    i bought a snow man pull plow for this last season....very well built....quality is a-1.....in my situation i had it on a blazer and it was too much weight,yes it adds some length.....with down pressure you get an excellent look when you are done.......i used it in a small developement where i plow all the driveways(25), some in tight quarters and it worked well recently purchased a skidsteer so i will be using that for these properties next year

    Please advertise any items for sale in this forum instead. Thank You Dino

    In our market, almost everyone has them. After using them now I know why. It is a real timesaver, both on residential and commercial. Great for cleanups, scraping hardpack, loading docks, garage doors,etc,etc,etc...

    They go for around 2000--2500 bucks.

    Well worth the money.

    I had one on my dodge.
    Mine was a daniels like the one in the pic above.
    It's great for doing driveways(pulling away from garage doors) and loading docks and etc... etc...
    I found that it doesn't stick out as far as some of the newer models that I've seen lately.
    I'm going to make one up to put on my new S-10 for the small driveways that I do in the city.

    I bought one this past fall ( Daniels pull plow)for $ 1,850.and found it great help and time saver. It's great for doing those long drives with curves in them.Just drop it while going around the curve and it cleans up where the rear tires tracked over the snow.

    Kind of seems like this option if you do not want to salt with your p/up is a way to make the most use of your plowing vehicle.

    If you do want to run a tailgate spreader, snowman makes one that is compatible with one. They have a web site to check there products out on.

    On a slightly different note, those of you who use back blades, how long have you been using them?
