I think we should lobby the producers of the show to include some old Subies in their crazy projects. I think old Subaru wagon and duct tape go very well together.

I think it would be a great idea and a bad one also. Neat to have, terrible on the AWD system. I wouldn't put a plow on anything that wasn't a true 4WD (with a real transfer case). I think it would be neat to have but it would most likely do damage to the vehicle. I know that it looks cool but may be more damaging than useful. Brian

I ran plows on tractors at Ohio State, and one thing is for sure when you plow - sooner or later, you SHALL break the equipment on some unseen hazard.

Or, the seen but unexpected ... once one of the area supervisors rammed my Ford 1000 head-on with her Ford 3910 because she thought I was invading her territory. WTF was wrong with that b1tch only God knows, but it made a great story when I took that broken plow back to the shop.

*breaks into song*

Well you know there's coffee brewing
and there's always something doing at the shop

(at the shop)

Yeah you can go and get a tool and
maybe do a little foolin' at the shop!

Yeah you can stop and do some talking
or be clocking and a-walking at the shop.

Let's go to the shop, oh baby, let's go to the shop...

I like the news story from last winter, when someone decided to steal a used snowplow off a lot on a snowy day.

The blade lift was not connected. They drove off, safely clearing a path for the police to follow *G*

Ha! This picture is hilarious.


I don't have anything crazy like that in mind...well sorta, but not so extreme.

I'm simply talking about pushing one path of snow from my garage to the road, maybe 75'-80'...on a flat driveway with no obstructions. Doesn't seem like it'd be that much trouble, nor would it be too much stress on the drivetrain. The majority of the snow we get in Rochester is very light and fluffy lake effect snow, not wet and heavy "snowman" snow.

Ah well, it's a dream. Shoveling is about all the excersise I get these days so it's probably better that a plow doesn't exist!

With the Tahoe I do not need to plow. Seriously, ask Alex he has seen my driveway, I have the driveway plowed for the wife and my sister in law (lives with us). And I still have to go out and drive their cars into the garage/barn because they can not get up the hill.

Well of course I don't NEED the driveway plowed, but I'm anal and OCD about having a clean, snow-free driveway as much as possible.
