Warn ATV Snow Plows
History of the Snow Plow
We only think of motorized vehicles with snow plow attachments today, but the use of a plank of wood, attached to a wagon, pulled by a horse was probably the first non-human snow moving device. It didn't take long after the invention of the automobile for someone to think up the idea of adding a plow. They didn't have to stretch too far since most people would have seen railroad snowplows moving along the tracks with a V shaped plow on the front. As early as 1892, there was a patent for the hydraulic movement of a snow plow blade from the interior of the engine compartment.
Today there are many kinds of snow plows. Mostly we think of the giant snowplow that cleans our roads, but every year more people are getting their own plows to clean out their driveways and roads. From companies like Access Snowplows, you can get snow plows that mount into a hitch receiver on the front or rear of your truck or Jeep. People also use their ATV or UTV to move snow in driveways and areas where larger vehicles cannot go. Smaller plows like these are made by companies like Warn Snow plows.
When you finish your snow plowing, there is always the need to spread salt to keep the ice down. You can find salt spreaders at web stores like Hitches4Less.com. They offer both Buyers SaltDogg Salt Spreaders and Snowex Salt Spreaders.
