Yes, installation is simple with easy to follow instructions and how to videos. The blade and push frame assemble in a little over an hour. Depending on your ability level, plan an additional 30-60 minutes to install a front mount. Once assembled, the blade attaches to the mount in seconds.

What does "fascia trimming may be required" mean?

Some front mounts may require fascia trimming. Meaning the receiver portion of the mount may interfere with lower region of the bumper's air dam and requires a notch to be cut. See how to trim fascia.

Does the blade ever need to be painted?

No, the blade is made of corrosion resistant, clear anodized extruded aluminum and will not need to be painted.

How well does the rubber cutting edge hold up?

Rubber cutting edge is 1 in. thick by 6 in. tall and manufactured from a durable rubber compound with a life expectancy of 10+ years, depending on the type of terrain and amount of down pressure used.

Do SNOWSPORT® Utility Plows angle?

SNOWSPORT® HD Utility Plow can be positioned to angle left or right.

How do SNOWSPORT® Utility Plows operate without hydraulics?

SNOWSPORT® HD, LT and 180 Utility Plows use a motion activated design. With the plow in the lowered position, simply drive forward to engage the blade. The push frame allows the blade to slide up and down, automatically adjusting to the terrain. Reverse and the blade tilts back, skimming over the surface. To automatically re-engage the blade for another pass simply drive forward again.

Can SNOWSPORT® Utility Plows manage heavy, deep snow?

Yes, our plows easily handle as much snow as your tractor, skid steer or truck will push before losing traction. The amount of snow to be cleared efficiently is determined by snow depth and water content. Adjusting the width of each pass and plowing more often during continuous snowfalls is helpful. It's advised to keep up with heavy snowfalls and clear snow periodically if extra deep snow is in the forecast. For heavy, drifted snow, we recommend using SNOWSPORT™ Hold Down Strap or Down Pressure Kit.

What speed do you recommend for plowing?

We recommend 10 mph for plowing with a SNOWSPORT® HD Utility Plow and 5 mph when using a SNOWSPORT® LT or 180 Utility Plow. We recommend lowest gear range on your skid steer or tractor when using a SNOWSPORT® PRO Utility Blade.

How do you switch from transporting to plowing?

On the HD, LT and 180 Snow Plows, simply remove quick pins at the top of the push frame. Lift the blade, one side at a time and lower over push frame. Reinsert the quick pins. When you are done plowing, simply reverse the process.

Is the snow plow easy to install or remove between jobs?

Yes, the HD, LT and 180 Utility Plows are designed to easily attach or detach from your vehicle. Insert the push frame into the front/rear receiver and secure with receiver pin. No tools required. Lift the blade, one side at a time, into the push frame retainers and secure with quick pins. Unhooking the plow from the vehicle is just as easy, simply reverse the process.

The PRO Snow Plow Blade for tractor is designed to easily attach or detach from your skid steer or loader by utilizing the universal quick attach mounting interface. Ensure proper alignment then drive forward slowly and engage the tractors quick attach system to the skid steer quick attach plates.

What if the plow hits something when plowing?

Ideally, prior to the winter plowing season, survey your driveway and yard for possible obstacles and remove if possible or mark. In unfamiliar terrain plow with caution at a slower speed. The self-adjusting SNOWSPORT® HD, LT and 180 Utility Plow glides over the terrain and the rubber cutting edge flexes to pass over smaller obstacles. The SNOWSPORT® Pro Utility Blades rubber cutting edge also flexes to pass over smaller obstacles.

Can I transport SNOWSPORT® Utility Plow attached to a vehicle?

Yes, in the transport position SNOWSPORT® Utility Plows do not obstruct OEM headlights. Do not exceed 65 mph when transporting the snow plow.

Can I use the front receiver that is already on my vehicle?

A class III, 2 in receiver mount is required and 8 to 14 in. of clearance from under receiver to level grade when installed for front and rear mounts. A SNOWSPORT® HD Utility Plow will work up to 16 in. above level grade. Vehicles with suspension modifications may cause SNOWSPORT® Utility Plows to fit and operate incorrectly.

Will the quick tach interface on my compact loader or tractor work?

Yes, if your tractor or loader has a universal quick attach system our SNOWSPORT® Pro Utility Blades will work.

Which SNOWSPORT® Pro Utility Blade will work best with a sub-compact tractor?

We recommend the 84 in. or 72 in. Pro Compact Tractor Snow Plow for tractors with 25HP or less.

Why do SNOWSPORT® Utility Plows ship in multiple boxes?

To use parcel shipping, the SNOWSPORT® PRO, HD, LT and 180 Utility Plows are packaged in multiple boxes to meet size and weight requirements. Front mount ships separately.
