Nordic Auto Plow

I saw this ad and initially thought it was a joke.
Anyone ever seen these in action?
No need to brave the elements using your walk behind or tractor blower and your car already has built in cup holders!

Looking at the guy lift it with one hand, 2 of 4 attachments being bungee cords, not able to angle the blade, .... I'm just not seeing it.
I'd be really worried about the clips that go between the door and front fender taking the paint off or worse, bending the metal.

Can't imagine what it would be like in wet heavy snow or regular deep snow or EOD since the bottom of the blade is rounded and would tend to ride up. Can't really tell but in the video for the most part seems to be around 3" ??

He says he's been using it for three years so ... he must be happy with it.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

if it works it would be pretty cool especially since they only weigh 50lbs. even the price isn't too bad but i would be more interested in how long do they last with normal use? if they last it might be worth picking one up along with a cheap 4x4 for my aunts rescue. buying a real plow and running it isn't exactly cheap. normally see stuff that needs work for $1500+

I guess, it's still better than shoveling.

Interesting, I'd never heard of this. The Amazon reviews are not terribly encouraging:



It would seem difficult to mount something like that securely, if it's made to be somewhat universal. In addition to performance, I'd be concerned about body damage to the vehicle.

I can do my 10 car driveway with my snow blower in about 15 minutes with my 26" 11hp snowblwower with that little bit of snow.

I know people that have tried UTV's for plowing and I see another local with a flimsy manual plow on his F150. You will tear up that equipment. It simply isn't made well enough for real work. The plow assembly on my F250 weighs nearly 1000 lbs, lots of heavy steel needed to make such a device durable enough to use. You also need a heavy vehicle or you are not going to have any traction. I kind of like watching people experiment like this as I know they will be a willing plow customer in the next season or two when that plan fails them. I have plowed snow for nearly 30 years. Having good tools is paramount to success. This isn't a good tool, simple as that.

Some of the janitor/grounds care guys have something similar on their pick-ups here. Although I’ve never seen one ploughing a substantial amount of snow with one.

On the other hand, this is just too cute to not like it:
