how ghetto would this be? would it work?

Well my parents driveway upnorth does not get plowed and when I get up there i dont want to shovel it because its not worth it. my jeep has a front hitch and my truck will have a front hitch when i get it. If I used some 2x2 sign post stuff so it is adjustable from vehicle to vehicle and built a mount on to it, and mounted it to this think it would work just for plowing a driveway two-four times a year? ghetto as hell i know but I got to thinking it would work out nicely instead of shoveling 150' of driveway. this is what I want to build the mount off of.



not wide but 4 passes and it would be cleared okay and atleast look like people live there semi-year around. we dont get more then a foot anually so it would have to be to heavy duty since the most id be pushing is 4-6"s at a time.

i have seen something like this and it would work and the way it works is when you back up thw plow hinges away from the top ohh just extend the sides of the plow and make 2 passes
do a search for snowplows and you can find the design and make your own
i did with a quad one time and worked just fine

That would be pretty ghetto, if you didn't widen it your tires would pack the snow and leave strips, however if you widened it and use a winch to raise and lower it might be kinda cool.

I think this is more of a redneck thing. They don't bother shoveling the snow in the ghetto. I don't think its any more redneck then hooking it up to a lawn tractor. Go for it.

Jeepfreak81 did something very similar, just make sure you brace the vertical bar otherwise it will bend

up here all we do when we're lazy is pay someone $40 to plow it for us, just check out the local gas station's bulletin board.
