Ordered an Eagle snow blade and push bars today for the prowler. Kind of A double edge sword, hope I get to use it but also hope I don't need to use it.

checked the archives on here and Eagle seems to be well liked. My manual lift snow blower gets tiring
when using for 3 or 4 inches of snow. great for heave snow fall but we only get that A few times A year.

I've had mine for around 5 years now, works good for me. I get that double edge sword, but it beats the heck out of a shovel and gives me a reason to get the Cat out in the winter.

hope this doesn't double post I timed out when I went to post this.
The Eagle system looks like when blade and push bars are removed the
machine can still be used with minimal interference from mounting
plate.

Diesel looks like with your system if you can't push the snow you
can ride on it.

I am going to do what RD did and flip the mounting ears for the plow to give me 2" more ground clearance.

With the factory plate, I hit it several times. Flopping the mounting ears solved the problem. The plate is pretty stout, and Eagle makes a great product.

Pretty easy to do, I pulled mine off this spring and repainted with bed liner.

The mounting plate is a work of art! After mounting mine I decided it would never be removed as it offers great protection to the front differential! Not sure what I'll do with a snow plow in Arizona! LOL Maybe I'll push rocks!

Make sure you bundle up with a hat, scarf, gloves and coat when you push those rocks, the neighbors need something to gossip about!

In the event of A sand storm you will be able to keep neighbors plowed out.

That would be a hoot! Can't even imagine the amount of turmoil snow would cause! They do see below 32 temps at night during the winter, then back in the 50's during the day! We could always go to Lake Havasu for the winters! LOL

Kingman it is! Found a great house, my sister, and brother in-law our meeting our realtor on Monday to go through it, once settled I do plan on meeting up with you! The Parker race would work! Also on my bucket list is the Salt Flats! Just something primitive about Bonneville, return to our roots!
