    For those who want the advantages of a back dragging plow with buying/building a rear plow:

    The new Hiniker C-Plow "covertable" switches from conventional front plow to back-dragger with the flip of a switch.

    --Thought some would like to know--

    i haven't sean a picture of this plow, so this statement has no realy fact behind it.

    I just think that when you design a plow, to do do different jobs, there may be too many moving parts, and too many weak links in the design. Thus resulting in more breakdowns. This is pure opinion, not a fact by any mean.

    Arctic (based in Ontario) makes a pull plow we're going to check out tomorrow or friday. Since we're emphasizing full-service to our residentials next season, we expect to have more driveways to plow. Other than seeing it on their website I know nothing about Arctic pull plows...we are curious though. Daniels doesn't have a website I guess, and I haven't heard of them up here in Canada.

    I saw a brochure on the Hiniker C plow. Looks to me like you could tear hell out of it if you snagged something while backing up. Also there not a lot of room under the wishbone and the part of the plow that doesn't flip-flo to carry much snow. That and the foine endorsement from John Parker makes it real easy for me to stay away from Hiniker.

    from what i hear, the forks bend easily, the mounting of them isn't too great and the c-plow looks like it wouldn't see one season on use.

    <b>Ed Altheide</b>- welcome to the forum. it's nice to finally have someone involved with making snowplows. one of my friends is a distributor for them. just wondering why in your ads you show them pulling gravel?
