    I'm looking to see if anyone sells a snow plow for my Exmark rider. Or if there is a attachment to use a homeowner tractor one from Lowes or Homedepot.

    Give Dave a call at ETEC. You can go their website to see their brooms and other products, but the plow hasn't been put on there yet for some reason. Dave can send ya a video clip of it though. His number is 1-800-434-5309, tell him Brian in MO sent ya. :)

    If I had a ZTR that would be the first thing I'd do in the fall after I got done with fall cleanups

    interesting idea. Is there one for the super z? I would think maybe because of the larger hydro pumps. How much more wear and tear does this put on the machine?

    first question is how much are you willing to spend and if you are looking for quality. i also read in pro or turf mag that trac - vac makes plows too but i dont know how much i have some info on the trac- vac plow if you wanna see it

    Good point......As far as the ETEC plows they are of very high quality, I would not hesitate at all to reccomend this package to anyone, but it isn't cheap. The 5' plow with electic toggles for the winch and angle adjust came in at $1000.00. But as I said you are getting what you're paying for.

    Do you really want to use an 8000 dollar mower to push snow. Wear out the hydros, run it in the salt and just beat it. Ask the guys who plow with pickups how long their trannys last. Spend the money and get a snow blower . just my pennys!
