Ive given the snow plough some serious thought after last years weather ... I rekon a small 6ft blade is easy to fabricate using a 1/3 rubber pipe, mounted to a steel frame and fixed to a square tube mounting on the front of a jimny ... also rear salt spredder towed would also work ...

I really like the diff protectors, great that there blot on, not weld on.

Sadly there is no distributor in Australia, but hopefully I can import straight from the company.
fingers crossed, they are exactly what I an looking for.

excellent plan for where we are, i could bid on council contracts and get paid for playing in snow!

why does mainland uk exclude the highlands? its the same bloody island!

I used to be the head groundsman at Longleat before moving into teaching so was on call most winters as part of the estates gritting team - we used a tractor with loader and fertiliser spinner. The lads used to rip me about my truck and still do (usual comments we all get). Imagine there shock when i showed them the following -

:P :P :P Its a nice feeling when you can be a smug *cough* when you know that you truck can be a little earner in the winter!!!! LOL!!! Then everytime they started with the comments - just hummed the Simpsons song "Mr Plow" and ask them if they could do that in their normal run of the mill cars!!

Obviously in britain we dont get that much snow to need one, but the options always there!!!
