Slush Plow

Has anyone tried using one of these slush plows that attaches to your snowblower? It looks like a pretty good idea.

For that price it is much much cheaper to put a Clarence Impeller kit and tackle the slush with ease. Maybe the next snow blower attachment will be a front attached mower with a small radiator for the engine?

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

LOL!! I don't know that I would get one, but it looks like it would be fun to use. I like the idea of using the machine you already have for doing the plow work when the blower is having a difficult time in the slush. I am thinking my old track drive would have worked well with this setup.

the plow cost more than I paid for either two stage toro I have but like PS93 I'm not drilling holes in my machine. I'm going to get the 521 up to the shop so I can have some heat and put the impeller kit on it

current machines

I'd make an attachment with some flat stock and hang it out in front of the machine rather then drill holes in the machine frame

Agreed, I have an impeller kit on my main snowblower and it handles the slush with ease. I have had no issues with it clogging ever since I installed it.

1. It looks like the operator is pushing the machine pretty hard in the video.
2. As some have already said, why not just blow the stuff.
