    I was looking into plows for a walk behind last year and I belive Bunton was one of three that I found.I gave up on the idea because of the overall length of the unit.I bought a little Toro snow blower.

    AB, I live in an area where we get snow once every 3 or 4 years (central Virginia). I don't want to buy a truck (my current truck is 2WD) and a plow and then have them sit for 3 years waiting for the white stuff. How much is a plow for a WB? I have a 48" Lesco with dual hydros. I know it has great power and seems unstoppable but could it plow good size parking lots or do you just use it for driveways. Any help would be appreciated.

    That would be more for sidewalks and driveways Andy. My JD is great for that too, but even a small parking lot would take forever.

    No they would be NO GOOD on parking lots.They are awsome for smaller areas but a parking lot is too big.

    hey Barkley I'm in the same boat. I bought an atv thinking a truck plow was overkill on the overhead. I sold it thinking I could do better with a $35.00 snow shovel for my guys and limiting myself to residentials. But what if the big one came. Well I have found that the guys at Exmark can solve this problem. They make 60" plows for their lazers. a bit pricy though. almost 1 grand for the actualtor an sub fram and about 600.00 for the plow itself. Then i checked into a plow for a wb and they are about 300-500 dollars. They claim they are designed for a lot of inches. Exmark does not make these plows but they can refer you to the manusfacturer who does and i wouldn't dought if they made it for all sorts of makes and models.
