Just wondering if ne1 has tried it... I have a 6' plow that came off a Blazer that Im thinking of putting on one of my B2s, I would need to fab mounts to mate the plow onto the truck but I work in metal fab so thats not an issue, Im just curious how well it might push. The B2 has a durasparked 2.8, 30" tires, 5 speed, does very well in the deep snow by itself.

Yeah, I have one. I adapted a rear receiver hitch and put it on the front of one of my '89 B II's. Not powered except for lift. Manual side adjusting. It won't plow the highway but on my 1/2 mile gravel road it works fine, gotta plow with the storm.

Yeah, I have one. It operates from a 2" receiver hitch using an ATV winch. Manual side angling. I won't be plowing the highway but it works fine on my 1/2 mile gravel drive.

^^^ Holy big picture!
I adapted a three point hitch style to the front of my b-2 using a 2" receiver. It worked fine.





It's a bit Rube Goldberg-ish, but it worked. That b-2 is long gone tho.

I plowed with a 83 ranger 5 speed. Agreed it will plow just fine. Mine had a meyer electric hydraulic unit. It was great. Beats shoveling

Just to update.... I did put a blade on a B2 and used it successfully all last winter, here it is with a couple garden tractors also geared up for snow removal...
