    Fellow Taco folks, any experience with snow plows for our little trucks?

    I am buying a house with a good sized driveway with a hill and my little JD tractor will not suffice. As a New Englander, I will NEVER pay another person to plow my driveway, we do shit ourselves. Anyway, let me know experiences please.

    I have a second Gen with a sno-way plow. The only one with down pressure that I know of. I've used it for 5 or so years now. Love it and it's done awesome and the truck has done just fine. I make sure to stay ahead of large snow drops, especially because I used to plow up hill. I have a lift and 285's so I have since run stock size snows for the winter to keep the plow mount low enough. I don't know about 3rd gens, but you'd probably want to add something like timbrens to be able to take the extra weight. The plow is 285# + the weight of the frame.

    Yeah but there’s a ton of plow services out here. How are they making money if new englanders are so hardcore?

    I see them plowing residential all the time. The one thing I learnt moving to the east coast- erryone full of shit :D

    I live in Canada. I bought a snow sport plow last year. It was used and I got it cheap...works great on the Tacoma. I like simple mechanical operation for home use. Not lifting parts to fail.

    Bunch-o lazy fuckers or transplants from "dem flat lander" areas, I do my own.

    The bigger tractor is being very seriously considered, but thought a little plow ~$2000.00 would be the cheapest.

    There’s a guy here who has a 2nd gen taco with a plow. I don’t recall the brand because I’m still a noob and I use a damn shovel (short driveway). I think there’s a bulldog on it. Anyway, if the 2nd gen can do it, the 3rd gen can do it better.

    That's because you moved north instead of south... east. The only people who don't do things themselves down here are the ones that have moved here from the north....:duel::cheers:

    A coworker gave me shit about wearing flip flops. I’m like wtf bro. It’s hot out. Apparently these people don’t wear flip flops. That’s why they are so ornery. They got hot feet.

    No experience with plowing with my Tacoma. You probably have already seen this:

    Wait 'til the fire ants sting you. That'll make you re-think the flip flop attire! :devil:

    Year 'round here. In the NW, flip flops are like wingtips.

    Everyone should have an old ford 8N with a plow on the back. Works great with a 100metre drive way in Canada as well in the city. You can drive around the neighbourhood and plow the side walks. also easy to get parts, easy to work on if need to. In 10 years of owning this, I have change fluids. Starts every time 6v and all.

    I still have some Chacos, but just grab whatever Costco has for cheap. I blew out too many better ones.

    I like the relaxed west better than the strung too tight east. I think it is the humidity?

    I plow my 400’ driveway and mile long road with a Honda Foreman 400 and a Warn Atv plow. How little is your little tractor? It’ll probably do just fine, especially since the snow will just melt off nearly as fast as you plow it anyway unless your in Maine or something.
