ATV Snow Plow Reviews
What Kind of Job Are You Doing?
The type of job you plan on doing will play a huge part in the type of plow you chose. Generally, if you are plowing a heavy amount of sidewalks, which are very narrow, you’re going to want a smaller plow. You’ll want a plow that will clean the entire area without going over the edge of the sidewalk. BOSS offers a four foot ATV plow that is ideal for sidewalk use. Wider UTV snow plows are more equipped for residential, short driveways. If you are looking to plow more rugged terrain, such as a long camp drive, you might want to consider a v-plow as it can more easily break trail and cut through ice.
ATV Vs. UTV
As noted above, the type of job you’re doing is going to help determine the plow you get. Odds are, it has already also determined the type of machine you have. If you’re on a municipal snow removal team, you’re probably got, or are going to want, a heated UTV cab for many hours on the job. With the larger UTV, your options for a snowplow will be different than those of an ATV. Generally, the bigger the machine, the bigger a plow you can use with it. Once again, if you’re doing a lot of sidewalk work, you’ll probably have an ATV which means you’ll want a smaller, narrower plow.
Straight or V
There’s no doubt, both plows are tough. Straight blades are very popular as they are generally lighter and less expensive. However, the V-plow can handle snow in a very different way than the straight blade. Because of the arrowhead configuration of the V-plow it can slice through frozen snow more readily than a straight blade. Stacking snow is also a tad different, as you can put the V-plow into scoop mode and direct exactly where the snow will go.
