Can I install a SnowSport® myself?
Yes, installation is simple and the instructions are clear-cut. If you do need assistance, call 1-866-414-5422 between 7:30am - 5:30pm CST. To install the front mount hitch for the SnowSport® HD Utility Plow plan about 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on your level of experience. From there the blade attaches in minutes. The SnowSport® 180 plow simply plugs into a 2 rear receiver. The SnowSport® ATV Plow is quickly attached by pins, no drilling or bolting is required.
Do I need to paint the blade to keep it looking good?
No, the blade is made of clear anodized, hardened extruded aluminum. It never rusts or needs to be painted.
How can a SnowSport® operate without hydraulics?
As you push snow, the blade travels up and down as needed by gravity. The rubber cutting edge is designed to cut through the snow but pass over the harder ground surfaces below and be gentle on grass. When you back up, the blade automatically lies back, skimming over the surface. Then you drive forward and the blade re-engages for plowing.
How do you switch from transporting to plowing or from plowing to transporting?
The operator manually lowers the blade one end at a time to start plowing. When the plowing job is done lift the blade one end at a time onto the push frame for transporting.
How easy is a plow to hook up or un-hook between jobs?
Its very easy. Just insert the push frame into the front receiver hitch and secure with pin. Then hang the blade one end at a time onto the push frame (can be done in less than a minute). Unhooking is just as easy.
How much do the plows weigh?
The SnowSport® HD Utility Plows aluminum blade is about 110 lbs. The complete kit with blade, push frame and hitch is about 225 lbs. The SnowSport® 180 Plows blade weighs 56 lbs. The SnowSport® ATV Utility Plow has 3 different sizes ranging from 54 - 72” with a blade weight range of 92 - 103 lbs. Complete kits with the blade and front mount range from 109 - 132 lbs.
How well does the rubber cutting edge hold up?
