There are no wires to run, electronics to kill your battery, or fluids to leak. This patented technology is the fastest and easiest way to operate a snow plow. The weight of the plow is balanced to hold it 6’’ off of the ground. This is done with springs. When you are ready to plow you simply press down on the foot pad and with minimal pressure the plow will move down to the ground. Once you start moving forward the snow will then keep the plow on the ground scrapping. When you stop and begin to reverse, the springs will return the plow to the upright position. This allows you to operate the plow instantly, without waiting for slow actuators.

Do you remember when you used your zero turn mower (ZTR) for the first time? You were probably amazed at how much faster you could finish your lawn compared to your traditional tractor. The same thing applies to using your ZTR for a snow plow. You can plow your driveway in a fraction of the time it would take you with a traditional tractor. Speed is not the only advantage ZTR have. They also have better traction and steering than traditional tractors. The heaviest components on ZTR, the engine and drivetrain are located directly above the drive wheels. This allows for maximum traction without any extra weight.
Is a Snow Plow Safe for My ZTR?
Nearly all ZTR on the market today are hydraulic driven. This type of drivetrain allows you to operate your ZTR snow plow with very little engine throttle, typically 25%. This means your 25hp engine is only using about 7hp to push the snow. This is very low load on your tractor also meaning you are not likely to damage your ZTR while plowing.
Typical lawn mowers are designed to operate in temperatures that grass grows (60-90F). Recent government pollution regulations have forced manufactures to calibrate their engines to run ultra efficient. To do this they tune the engines extremely lean while targeting operating temperate of 60 – 90 degrees Fahrenheit. If manufactures were to sell cold weather equipment, they would have to change their engine tuning which would reduce the warm weather emissions efficiency and risk failing government regulations.
