" This plow setup it really great in multiple ways. The amount of snow that it will move is just as good as a standard hydrolic plow but the ability to easily and quickly mount and remove is what I love! I keep the push mount and winch on a small roller cart and can easily install that and the blade in literally minutes. Quicker than i could prep and start the snowblower. after only a couple months I upgraded to the electric winch control and that was the icing on the cake. Wonderful setup and ability to move large amounts of snow with ease. then remove the entire unit and no one would guess you have a plow system on your vehicle. After 1 year i cannot even tell the blade or rubber part at the bottom was used and i put it to use all winter. This unit will last a long time "

" I have been using this plow for several years, and I couldn't be happier with it. There is almost no sign of wear on the rubber bottom, and I can plow over my grass without any damage. This plow handles the heavy lake effect snow we get here in upstate N.Y. without any problem. I purchased the hold down strap last winter and it really helps when we get the wet heavy snow, or when the driveway has been driven on before I get a chance to plow. I recommend this to everyone who is tired of snow blowing and shoveling. "

" This is the best snow plow I've ever used. Easily pushes snow and if you go over grass or gravel it doesn't tear up anything. There's no need for a huge plow frame with lights as you use your own headlights and its light weight frame mount. Easy on and off and if you place it in the up/hold position you can carry it around easily with no need to beef up your front end because its so light. Mounting the front hitch was a breeze and bolting the rubber blade on was also. You can angle the plow in either direction or push the snow straight. I usually just keep the plow straight and with the side blades attached it grabs so much snow as you go its awesome. The winter of 2014/2015 in New York was cold and alot of snow. This plow did the job so good I didn't mind the 20 inch storms at all. I've plowed with Mack trucks for a municipality and had plows on pickups and a CJ 5 jeep. This plow is my favorite. Whether its 2 inches or a foot of snow it handles it like a champ. No hydraulics or electric to worry about and when you back up it just tilts and drags along . When you go forward it stays upright and away you go. I've recommend this plow to many friends and can't say anything bad about it. If your looking for a plow that can easily handle a foot of snow and want to spend half the price of a plow with hydraulics/electric that weighs a ton and would make you need a new front end, then this plow is for you!

" I researched this product for a week and was impressed. Wasn't able to find any bad reviews. Finally got it installed on my Dodge Dakota. Works better then advertised. "

" Love my Snowsport! I admit I bought it second hand, but when needed, I will definitely buy new. Great job, guys. "
By E K.
" The plow is well built and uses heavy duty metal and aluminum. The rubber blade is very thick and will last for many seasons. I like the fact that the plow came with plow markers and a free LED back up light.After viewing the assembly video I was able to assemble the blade with hand tools. Besides the required tools you will need a 2 X 4 to support the two halves of the blade while you bolt them together. Between the assembly video and the factory drill marks, assembly was not too hard.My driveway is 70 feet long and I also volunteer to plow my elderly neighbor’s driveways. The plow will save me a lot of time in the ice and cold! "
By Christopher H. - NH
" Love this plow. Inexpensive, durable and most importantly it works. A few minor things I'd change... Really wish the screws holding the rubber scraper were actual bolts, not screws. They are really easy to strip the heads out with the amount of force required to install. The down pressure strap should just come with the plow. This plow absolutely will not pull up packed snow without it, but with it it's awesome. Need longer edge markers. Even on my Tacoma when the plow is down I can barely see the markers. "

" Make sure you read the description of what it includes. I bought the plow from one of your online dealers thinking it came complete. Ended up buying everything separate at a $500.00 increase. My plow blade had damage but did not effect it enough to send it back. "
By Robert A. - NH
" I have the 84" plow mounted on a 2001 Dodge Ram 2wd. The plow works great. So far we've had two snow storms this year, a 5" and a 6" storm with heavy wet snow. The plow cut through the snow like butter. I do have studded winter tires and about 400lbs weight in the bed for extra traction. Do not try this plow out on dry pavement, it will bounce up and down due to the rubber cutting edge, only use it in snow. "
By Joseph U. - MD
" WOW!!!! Cut my snow removal time from 9 hours to 2. Could not ask for an easier set up!!! The engineering on this plow is incredible. Thanks for a great American made product. "
By Chris D.
" I have this plow on a RAM 1500 and it will be the third winter for it. It looks just as good as the day I installed it. As I said in my previous reviews I have now problem plowing over a foot of heavy lake effect snow from Lake Erie. It does the job every time. I just wish I had it years ago!!!! "

" I have to say my Snow Sport HD Utility Plow has been great. Its a good buy for home owner with long driveways. Mine has paid itself off for the 4 years I have had it. "
By Tom J. - MA
" I'm writing to express my satisfaction with the SnowSport Utility Plow. I thought of getting one for a couple years and many uses of a snow blower on 5 driveways in the neighborhood finally made me get one, I got this little champ of a plow in June of 2007, a bit early and a bit of a wait for snow... But worth the wait. Well I got the snow I was waiting for, and finally got to use the SnowSport... I am more than satisfied with it's performance... Now it is time for more snow... Sure beats the snowblower for 5 driveways. "

" The Snowsport HD is a Fantastic snow plow.I love the fact that it has no hydrolics or electrics. It is simple and reliable. I cleared six inches of snow off of six long asphalt driveways in two hours. I highly recommend this plow. It far exceeds my expectations. "
By Bob T. - MT
" This year we're getting real snow! After the first snow, I called our favorite snow plow guy and left a message on his phone. I know he was busy, but after a week without hearing back from him, I stumbled online on the Snowsport HD plow, and after 2-3 days of hesitation, I ordered it.When it arrived, it assembled easily with the instructions. My only disappointment is that the receiver was shipped from a separate facility and arrived a few days later. So I mounted it on the back of my Dodge Grand Caravan which already had a 2" receiver. Even going backwards, I was amazed at what I could do with 2-wheel drive.Then the receiver arrived, and installed very easily on the old Suburban. And then we got a real snow - about 12-15 inches. The plow worked incredibly well, and after three more snows, I don't know what we'd have done without it. I can completely clear our 100 x 150 foot parking lot in less than 30 minutes.One caveat: don't expect to plow 2 feet of snow all at once. Above a foot or so, the snow will start coming over the top of the plow. With more than about ten inches, you'll be needing to push that snow to the side off the road frequently. And as soon as you make a pass, try taking perhaps half a plow's width instead of the whole width at once.The plow is light compared to a standard hydraulic model, which means it's easy on the front end of your vehicle. The plow lifts off, which means that you can easily remove it when you don't want to drive around with a big, wide plow on your machine in town.All in all, very satisfied. If I'd known how good this works, I'd have bought one years ago. Especially for the price! "
By Glenn C.
" Used for the first time this season, living near Buffalo NY we get plenty of snow. It worked very well. Did a lot of research and looking into this plow and it just plain and simple works. Mine was purchased used, but there is nothing to go wrong with them. I would recommend this to anyone. It pushed thru 2 feet of powder, and the same heavy wet snow later in the week with no issues. Simple to attach/detach and easy to use with out anything to go wrong with hydraulics/electronics/wiring/hoses. Only complaint it the plow markers, They need to be taller and a brighter color. Have a pic before the snow. "

" Highly satisfied thus far with the Snowsport plow. Hitch was installed professionally in 25 mins for 73.00. I assembled per instructions to the letter in 4hrs. Works great. Thanks for the sale and the superior customer service. Will recommend to neighbors,etc. Pleasure doing business. "
By Steve A. - IA
" Very fast shipping-quality product--easy to install. The kit came with everything needed to do the install. Especially liked the wire bolt threader as I had to drill out an extra hole. This thing made it easy to pull the bolt and support to the new hole. I have already used it and it works just great. Thanks.Steve "
By Justen P. - MN
" Very good plow for fresh snow. Easy to use, no hydraulics to worry about, or electrical wiring. Does a good job. Two things to keep in mind when purchasing this plow. 1, You can't back drag away from a shed door. 2, Rubber blades do not cut into hard MN snow drifts very well. "
By Tom T. - MI
" SnowSport mounted on mid-size truck fits in garage, ready to go. Handled every blizzard this winter. Hold down strap mounts in seconds, removes easily, and keeps blade level through heavy mounds. Highly recommend both. "
By Michael W. - IN
" I love the product. Wish I had purchased it earlier in the rough winter we had this year.My only comment would be to somewhere in your advertisement mention what tools are needed to put it together. My old drill bits were not up to the task and could not find all of my socket set...If I had known what I was going to need, I would have had that all together for when the UPS man delivered my blade.Great product, just what I needed for my truck and property. "
By Greg W. - WI
" I mounted a receiver hitch on to the drawbar of my 1949 J.I. Case SC. It works just as I had hoped without tearing up my lawn. Thanks for a great product that does as it's advertised. "
By John S. - PA
" This has been a snowy winter here in PA. The new SnowSport HD plow arrived 2 days before our largest snow storm. After assembling and installing it on my GMC Pickup I plowed some old snow to get the feel of the plows ability. I was very impressed with the ease of use and the fact that I could plow off the yard and fields without tearing up the ground. The next morning we had 11 inches of new snow. I was once again impressed with the amount of snow I could plow off of our dirt road. My only concern was some chatter and bouncing of the plow after I removed most of the snow. I then ordered a Hold Down Strap for the plow, which I received in the mail very fast. The hold down strap works very good and I would recommend anyone ordering a plow to order a hold down strap at the same time. I have also been very happy with customer service at ACI. They have been very helpful with questions and suggestions. Great Product and a Nice Job. Thank YOU. "

" I ordered my snow plow on a Thursday and had it the following Tuesday! I have used it a half dozen times and plow 2 driveways exceeding 600 feet in length. This plow is amazing, not hard on my truck, though I do admit I tend to baby it. Caught a "plow" guy looking at it in the parking lot and he didn't think it would perform. I have proven him wrong. This is a big change after fighting Northern Michigan winters for 20 years with a 28 inch snow blower! I"ll never be without a snow plow again. "
By Ron G.
" I've owned a 1 ton 4x4 with a commercial 9' plow for years... little overkill for my typical needs, PLUS my wife couldn't use it! Sold the whole thing last fall (2013)... just BEFORE the hardest winter snow we've experienced in MI for years! Had just purchased the SnowSport HD based on online reviews but was concerned about it's true potential to get the job done. Put it to the test on my small SUV and I COULD NOT GET OVER THE FANTASTIC JOB THIS PLOW DID!!! ... and now even my wife can plow our 500' drive and road! A WIN-WIN! I'm even thinking of mounting it on my AWD CTS this year so I can ride in style! (picture attached) What do you think? :) "
By Frank K.
" Just got the plow yesterday for my 2013 Jeep Wrangler. After reading numerous reviews and watching many videos I made the purchase. It looks great and the ease of taking it on and off are amazing. "
By Kerry S. - IN
" I purchased a new garden tractor and was looking at another snow blower. I added up the cost plus chains and I would still be in the cold. I found the SNOWSPORT on the internet. I mounted the SNOWSPORT on my 2004 F150 and very happy with it, also my neighbors. I live on a gravel lane, my daughter has a long gravel lane also. Church parking lot cleared for service, no problem. After 10 years I traded my 2004 F150 for a 2013 Silverado. Only had to purchase a new truck mount. When not in use I hang the snowsport on the wall. I'm 59 now, quick mount/dismount a plus. Thanks for a good product, home made cookies and gas cards from my neighbors. "
By Jim F. - WI
" Just thought you would like to know how much snow the HD can push. The picture shows a wet 14 inch snow that's piling up OVER my truck hood. One word of caution with pushing this much snow: don't stop! The HD's been great this winter; especially being able to push over grass. Next year I'm going even further into the yard. Great product. "
By Chris E. - WI
" Just use my Snowsport HD for the first time this morning. Wow, that is the only way to do it. Bring on winter! "
By Roy Crossman J. - British Columbia
" Just wanted to say thanks very much for an excellent product. I am a landscape contractor and got my plow this week and had to use it on 12 Strata complexes in Vancouver, Canada.
The plow works wonderful and and is very durable. I would rather buy 10 Snowsport Plows over before buying a Hydrolic plow. It angles perfect and the box ends move a lot of snow. "
By Greg P. - AZ
" We had about 6 inches of snow yesterday, and the new plow worked perfectly. I can't imagine any way that it could have been any better, and it was fun, besides!!! What used to take me 4 hours last year to do the driveway and cul-de-sac took me less than 15 minutes, and I got to stay nice and warm inside the Jeep. I never even needed to get out and angle the blade, it worked fine keeping it straight. Here is a pic taken from inside the house while I was working. "
By Richard C. - MI
" We had our first significant snowfall of the year yesterday, January 28, 2019. I had my new SnowSport HD plow installed this morning and used it for the first time within 10 minutes of leaving the dealer. I want to say, what a pleasure it was to clear my driveway from the comfort of my warm truck. I had my 300' + driveway cleared in less then 1/3 of the time it would have taken me with my snowblower. I have never used a plow before, so I was excited to give it try. It was very easy, but you have to be careful when backing up. I came close at one point of hitting my neighbors mailbox. Just take your time and watch where your going. The plow worked as advertised. Pushing the snow into piles and laying back and leaving the snow where you put it when you backup. The only thing I found as a problem, and it may just be me, was the side markers should be about 6 inch taller. I was having a little trouble seeing them. This was by no means a major issue. I might just slip a piece pex tubing or something over the markers. The only other issue was I got done to fast! I was having fun and want to plow more. Oh well, I'm sure I'll get my chance soon, we have a lot of winter left this year. "
By Michael L. - TN
" We just got a whopping 11 inches of wet snow here is East Tennessee and I was itching to see how the SnowSport plow would do. It worked like a champ! My driveway has a grade of 22 degrees on average, but that didn't stop the plow from performing beautifully! I've attached some photos of the plow in action. Enjoy! "
By Kevin - ND
" We ordered our Snow Sport and mount knowing it was not going to fit our lifted Jeep with tall tires. A little steel and a little welding, we made a custom mount for the plow so it would fit our Jeep. We got the plow in mid-March and with no fresh snow to try it out, we tried it in 40 degree weather in wet, heavy snow! Worked great, did not miss a beat, and plowed easily through the snow! After using a small skid-steer for four years to move snow at our home in the country, this Snow Sport plow is a snow removal game changer!! Cannot wait for some fresh new snow!!! "
By Mark K. - NY
" I purchased the Snow Sport Utility Plow 3 years ago from a former dealer. I installed it myself on my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee and was amazed at how well it worked. I live in the snow belt of upstate NY and have tried snow blowers and regular hydraulic plows, and this is better than either for personal or even small commercial use, IMHO. It is so simple to use and is truly a "minute mount" setup with the front receiver hitch. Also,no hydraulic lines to hook up, or break,or fiddle with while your plowing. I LOVE IT! "
By Tim S. - MN
" Awesome plow. Easy to store in a garage and take off with one person. In Minnesota we get a lot of snow. I have been cleaning up 6 - 10" snows easily and the SnowSport plow can pile the banks up 4 - 5' tall. I clear out a huge yard and long driveway in 15 minutes all from the comfort inside my truck. It doesn't work well on hard packed drifted snow on the lake as it will ride up on top of the snow pack. But if you start early in the year, you could keep a path cleared. You can see a YouTube video of my plow in action, just look up SnowSport HD plow 2002 Ford Expedition. Love this plow. Thanks to our friends in North Dakota who make this plow. It shipped to me in one day. "
By Richard S. - MT
" Great product! Works as advertised, putting the plow together took around 1 1/2. Also ordered a receiver for my truck. I have a Westin deer guard on my truck and a hour project took a day of modifying brackets to mount the receiver and purchasing a 12 inch receiver extension to clear my deer guard. With my atv it took me over 2 hours to plow, with the Snowsport about 20 minutes in a warm vehicle. Well worth the money! "
By Jim F. - WI
" This is the 1st yr I've had the HD and have used it 4 times so far. Yesterday and last night we got dumped on; 16+ inches of snow so this was it's 1st big test and it passed with flying colors! I have a 150' drive with a 30x50 turn-around area. After clearing out the turn-around I headed down the drive. The snow piled up to the top of the hood but it was not match to the HD. I used the strap tie-down and recommend it for nice clean 'scrape'. Here's a pic after it was all cleaned up; took about 20 min instead of 2 hr with my snowblower. "
By John H. - NY
" Back in July I purchased "Snow Sport HD Plow" I am using it a lot lately and folks are surprised at well it works. I plowed about two hours yesterday. God Bless! "
