Looking for info if anyone here has mounted a snow blade on a Brat. (ATV type, garden tractor typt, etc....)

i have a rather medium length straight drive, some concrete near the garage, and a one lane of small gravel to the road out front. I would like to rig up a "quick release" type blade for the front that I can pin in place quickly while in the garage, drive the brat out and scoop snow, back into the garage, and release the blade and slide it to the side until it snows next time.

to do this, i think it would take a custom bracket attached to the frame, with a quick release mount for the blade frame to attach to

Am i crazy, and or should i just get a snow blower?

I know I'm no help, but Subaru actually marketed snow blades for ea81s. Someone will post the pictures.

Yep - they made plows for the EA81's - they were even hydraulic and ran off the power steering pump. Pretty cool - I can't remember who, but there's a member here that found one. Perhaps he can take some pictures for you.

Yeah, down with legacy's. They're a dime a dozen. Although I think a brat with a snow plow is more appropiate.

wouldn't need the plow or a snow blower if my parents would just get an outback. They are the ones i need to scoop my own drive for, so they can come visit and not get stuck in my drive.

There used to be one of those around here. I drove past it every day on my way to work. It's not there any more, hasn't been for a while. I always assumed it was home built, but it may have been one of these kits after all.
