Never seen anything like this.They have plow,loaders,backhoes,rakes,mowers,etc,that all run off a special hitch on the front of the truck.

Chris, they have been around for quite a few years. Work ok but really extend the length of the vehicle. The price tag is pretty high too.

Yeah, this attachment was talked about a lot about 3-4 years ago on the other site.

There has to be a problem, because you'd likely see them all over if they worked well.

some people have way to much time to blow.:huh i really doubt either of those two trucks could push any serious snow with those <things?> Not to mention being able to see the 15 -20 ft ahead of them. Really kind of a bumb idea...:headwall

What would the advantage to this set up be? I wonder how much control you would have when it gets real slippery trying to turn a corner.

I guess the only advantage would be reducing the front axle weight,as the weight is being supported by the wheels on the attachment.

Seems like a pretty expensive and cumbersome set up to reduce front axle weight doesn't it?
Like dieselglory said, some people have way to much free time.
Great shots Wyldman. it is always fun to see what other people are doing.:nodd
