Personal Plow for a Honda Ridgeline?

I have a co-worker that would like to get a personal plow to do his driveway and his mother-in-law's. He just bought a Ridgeline and would like to use it to plow. He's not in the greatest of health and I think this winter is beating him up pretty bad using a snowblower. I've offered to help, but he wants what he wants.

I was thinking a Homesteader or Suburbanite might work but eMatch does not include Honda. Any ideas other than the Home Depot plow or that manual aluminum thing?

Home Plow

Well I had my doubts about "The Home Plow" by Meyer going into the season but they have been holding up really well being used as intended.

They do offer a mount for 05 thru 09 Honda Ridgeline, and the price for the set up isn't that bad when you think about what a large "quality" snow blower costs.

From posts on the honda forums the uni-body structure of those
"trucks" are pretty cheezy and weak. Many posts of the body
flexing and bending/denting of the quarter panels behind the rear
doors so i would be afraid of "pushing" anything with it!


Just a word of caution..............

Thanks guys. Looks like the Home Plow has a Ridgeline application.

Good info on the Uni-body. I'm surprised its that lightly built, as they get terrible mileage and aren't all that powerful. I'll pass on the info!

It may be better to find an older used plow/truck combo for plowing...
