When purchasing a snowplow, many decisions need to be made. Will you be using this for commercial use or your home? Are you plowing driveways, parking lots, or longer roads? These questions will help you determine the plow that is right for you.


What significant components make up a snowplow? You get a blade crate and a plow box. The blade crate is composed of a blade on a straight blade. The plow box comprises a coupler tower with hydraulics, a light bar with lights, a push frame, and a quad (on straight blades only). Controls will be different depending on if it is a straight blade, v-blade, downforce enabled, expanding, and if it is a compact vehicle.


Read on to learn about some of the accessories commonly available for your heavy equipment plow.
