Looking for bigger snow plow
Hi, I have a 13-33" snowblower, which is fine for deep snows. But for small snows, and wet slushy stuff, I use a 3' blade attached to my TroyBuilt rototiller (5 hp). When standing out in the freezing rain trying to wrestle this thing around turns, it really gets old.
Paved drive is 500 feet + some parking areas.
I have a Honda CRV. See some companies make hitches and plows that apparently fit that auto. Costs ~ $1800. That's probably OK, but I just have to wonder, is this car designed to push 6" of snow. Meaning, will light plowing damage the tranny/differential, blow the head gasket, etc? Just wondering ...
Also own an old AG tractor. I could also buy a three point hitch blade for that. Price range- $200 to $600. But then I would still be out in the freezing rain, and probably plowing in reverse. Still not an optimal situation.
Also, what's the difference between steel snow blades, and those which have rubber squeegee tips. So I need a squeegee tip on my asphalt drive?
Thanks for any ideas/advice.
