I gotta admit I got pretty excited about it myself. Then started thinking what a pain in the butt it would be plowing with a manual transmission. I'm spoiled having run automatics all these years.


Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way

Plowing with a manual is all about gearing and traction. One shop I worked at had an old GMC C6D flatbed with a 292 inline 6 and a 4 speed with a 10' plow (and the flatbed was 12" of concrete) I could push 20' tall mountains of snow in 2nd gear. I had a '99 Wrangler 4 cylinder 5 speed that I hung a Fisher 6'8" plow on. GREAT for driveways and stuff, didn't have enough power to spin the tires (31-10.50R15 All Terrain TA's) so another one that would push more than you'd expect. I probably couldn't run either now since my knees got bad...
