Snowplows are manufactured for a variety of different vehicle applications, so it should be easy to find one for your truck, SUV or van. In addition to the snowplow, you may need to purchase a snowplow prep package so that your vehicle will be able to accommodate the plow. Snowplows are also available for smaller vehicles such as ATVs.
The plows are typically easy to install, using a simple front mounting bracket, and can be easily removed for storage.
For increased performance, the blades can be adjusted to different angles. V-shaped blades prevent the snow from spilling out from the sides which saves you time because you won't have to backtrack.
