That ATV’s good for more than hunting trips and scopin’ babes a Kid Rock concert — it can also help clear the driveway.  The pictured version comes from Northern Tool & Equipment, who claims it’s a universal-mount kit. 

At $299, it’s a bit pricey, but after a bit of Froogling it started to look like a better deal.  We found a version from Warn (of winch fame) for $309 that looked pretty nice as well.

If you tear up the blade, expect to par $100 or more for a replacement, and don’t forget to check out side walls for better control of snow.

    Someone on our block has one of these, and is in the habit of doing the sidewalks for about half the subdivision in one fell swoop, whenever it snows. It’s awesome to wake up, look outside and see three inches of work, gear up for shoveling, and find out that the important part has already been done. One of these days, I’m going to catch that angel in the act, and figure out a way to show my gratitude.

    If these ATV plows make snowmoving so easy that someone can clear a mile of sidewalk in a few minutes just because they feel like it, imagine what a long driveway must be like.

    Do you live near me? We’ve got a guy near me with one who does the same thing. As a volunteer firefighter in my town we often do “snow watch” during big snow storms (basically spend the night at the firehouse so we don’t have to take the extra time to go out and get there if there’s an alarm.

    Well, during one such storm we “caught” the guy in the act at about 3am.
    Besides clearing the sidewalks, etc. He had his share of enjoyment doing donuts in the middle of main intersection in town since there was no one on the road and even the town public works guys hadn’t been by to plow yet.

    I plowed with an atv yesterday. A polaris sportsman 700 with over-sized mud tires and a 5 foot plow. It pushed 10 inches of snow with no problem with just a touch of throttle.
