Sammi Snowplow

I was wondering how many people are running a snowplow on there zuke. I was thinking like maybe an ATV 4' plow might complement theZuke. Any views? Thanks. Jim

Re: Sammi Snowplow

I have seen pic's of sami's with snow plows.
That was before the ATV craze.
So I know they make one that fits.

Re: Sammi Snowplow

I think it depends on how much snow you usually get in your area. Obviously a Zuk wouldn't be able to push a lot of snow at once. Up here in Wisconsin we get a lot of snow. I have been pondering the thought myself, but I also don't want to wear my new engine out too much. We also have a very, very long driveway, and the current guy that plows it does a really bad job. Since I would only use it to plow my driveway (maybe some friend's, but that's about it) I have been thinking about it. Only concern is if we get dumped 3 feet of that thick, wet, heavy stuff. You must be confident with your motor, and have good tires (which I don't have yet).

I was thinking of possibly buying a hydraulic mount and control system, and then make and adapt a custom plow. You could probably use some thicker but lighter guage aluminum, and then brace it with some thicker steel so it doesn't bend up on you. Also remember that plowing does a lot to a vehicle's frame. It all depends on where your from and how much plowing you intend to do.

Re: Sammi Snowplow

I have seen the plow that Suzuki sold with new Zukes and was made out of lexan. Not too crazy about that. I wouldn't do much plowing with it. Just like Truck said my drive plus some friends. We sometimes get lots of snow and then last year got 4". Hard to tell. Jim

Re: Sammi Snowplow

I know of a Suzuki mechanic that has had plows on two sammys. I asked him about it one day and he said they do really well with a small plow and he has had few problems with the setup...not sure how a truck that weighs so little can push a great deal of snow but he must do something right because there is no shortage of snow up here in the great white north [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Sammi Snowplow

obviously it would be good to add some xtra weight in the rear when plowing.

Re: Sammi Snowplow

This place does them foe Sidekicks and Trackers. I thought they did them for Sammis also but they may have been discontinued

Re: Sammi Snowplow

I just visited with SnowBear and they sell through Cosco and Sams Club!

They have a generic mounting system that will work with the samurai with as bit of Fabbing.

You buy the blade for the Samurai, then call SnowBear and they'll ship you the mount for free (it is figured into the price of the blade).

This might be a useful mod for my '88 1.6 8-v Zuk -- anything to get this thing to pay for itself!

Re: Sammi Snowplow

I have plowed witht he sami for the last 2 years. Works okay,
can't go much over a 6' blade. I have plowed storms that where
3' but did it twice as the storm progressed. 2' was the max I liked to push if it had any wieght to it. did my yard and my mothers. (You know the size) I ran the plow with the electric winch. I am going to plow with the tracke rthis winter,
(Got to order a new winch and make the bumper quick...)
I am happy with how it worked, you would need chains for stock sized tires for sure.

Re: Sammi Snowplow

I know Meyer (SP?) makes one specifically for the sammy....so you might want to check them out, in order to get the hydro's and all.
