Snow Plow ?

I would like to mount a small plow on one of my Samurai's, a 1991, just to do my driveway. I have seen them for that application in the past, but can't locate any now. Does anyone have any info?

THANKS !

Re: Snow Plow ?

If you do get a Snowbear, try BJ's or Costco or the like. I got one (for a Suburban) at BJ's and it was around 20% off list.

They are very light duty (especially mounted on a Suburban), but get the job done. I had trouble with mine (winch died, sliders bent) and found the manufacturer (in Guelph, Ontario) not particularly helpful or customer-oriented. With mine, the winch developed an internal electrical problem that caused the blade to slowly drop, which led to its being caught and bent on a buried curb. The winch manufacturer repaired the winch under warranty, but Snowbear disavowed responsibility to repair the blade. Eventually, after many letters, BJ's paid for most of the repair.

Remember to get a blade a little wider than the vehicle's track and consider the plastic/rubber blade edge if your driveway is finished hard and is smooth and regular. Otherwise, you will need to do a manual cleanup with a shovel after you plow.

Re: Snow Plow ?

Further to my post, a nice option to consider -- if available for the Suzuki -- is the receiver hitch mount. It goes on the same permanent mounts as the plow and puts a receiver hitch in the front of your vehicle, which is nice for moving your boat or other trailer into tight spaces.
