 Re: Snow Plow for tractor or truck, or snow blower

I have a driveway that loops around my house and is about 2,000' long. I am trying to decide whether to buy a truck mounted snow plow for $2,500 or buy a tractor and blade or blower. I have the truck and like the idea of the comfort inside the cab when plowing. The dealer tells me the plow connects is just a couple of minutes. I don't have much other use for a tractor other than to mow a couple acres of lawn and the remainder is all woods gound, most of which is steep. Any thought on the best use regardless of expense.

 Re: Snow Plow for tractor or truck, or snow blower

I assume your truck is 4WD and that you'll be keeping it for a while, which makes it hard to beat compared to a tractor. However here are some reasons you might want the tractor:-Your driveway has walls on one or both sides that are prone to large drifts, Here a loader is great!-You live in an area where you get lots of deep snow, then a tractor based blower is great!-Your driveway is gravel, a rear blade is good for maintaining it.-You have dirt to mive around with the loader a $2700 addon-You can use the tractor with a finish mower a $1700 option-You have $18000 ready and willing to buy a new tool

if you get the plow for the truck, you can plow relatives or neighbors drives and become a instant hero. plus plowing with a truck is fun as hell.

Are you aware that you can get a truck mounted sonowblower? They are hydraulically driven and let you take advantage of truck (comfort, speed, ease ,warmth) and snowblower (no banks of snow, not as hard on truck etc.) Also can still be a hero to freinds and neighbours They'll gladly pay you, and youll get lots of requests!

 Re: Snow Plow for tractor or truck, or snow blower

Remember when you plow you have to have a place to move ittoo. A snow blower will throw it 20-30 feet off road way.Most Plows recommend 4X4 3/4 Ton, can be done with 1/2Tbut how much are you going to be moving in that pile you created,what's on the road will move easy.

 Re: Snow Plow for tractor or truck, or snow blower

Spent 4.5 years figuring out what works best for meand it is by far the tractor with a loader and rear blade

Spent the first year with the blower action on a smaller tractorand I wasn't to impressed. Next 3 years a 4x4 with a plow. it was nice and warm unitl it got buried in a drift. It was also nice and warm until it came toclearing 3 foot accumulations near buildings etc.Last year I watched my Neighbor clear 2000' of driveway on a new John Deerein less time than it took me to do 700'. and after he got done yanking me out of the drift I used his tractor to clear the drifts near the buildings etc.Once was enough for me The 4x4 and plow are history and I have a new tractor with a loader and blade. I have usedit numerous times and wouldn't go back to the 4x4 if you gave it to mejust my two cents

 Re: Snow Plow for tractor or truck, or snow blower

I was wondering what tractor you wound up with. I 'm in the same situation, and have been dickering about how big a tractor to do about 1300 feet of dirve. Curious to know the weight of the machine, hydo stick, turf or r4

thanks

Yep, a truck and plow can only do so much but it can do it faster than a tractor and blower. When the snow gets deep, its time to park the truck and get out the tractor and blower or a big loader.
