anyone else plow with their Land Rover?

While getting my setup ready yesterday I was wondering if anyone else on here plows with a Land Rover. The pictures are from last years huge Oct. storm.

A number of people have done it over the years but there is a tendency for the welded seams of the frame to crack under heavy repeated use. A truck with a different type frame would be a better choice for long term use behind a snow plow.

Last years Exmoor trim calendar had a picture of a 90 plowing a field with a two bottom plow. Not a snow plow but a real plow ! I have moved and have no idea where I stashed that calendar but kept it just because of that picture. Very cool. Ill make an effort to find it and post the picture today.

I designed the plow frame for low stress and to eliminate any 90degree force on the chassis. The truck is on a Marsland Galvy chassis and I only plow my own driveway which is 100' long straight and flat. This plow was mainly brought about by necessity to protect my back, and now makes snow removal a pleasure.

I remember seeing in the "Whats New" section of a rover mag, were a company was selling snow plow kits for new discos. I think they also mentioned they had kits for defenders and such.
