D110 Snowplow/Farm use

We are waiting to close on a property with a .7 mile long easement/driveway that is our access to our property, and a few trails on the property. We will be required to maintain for our own use. Winter is coming.

I have a 110 parts donor truck that runs and drives, but does not have necessary docs for registration as a road vehicle. However, a nice orange triangle on the back, and voila, it is a ag tractor.

That said, has anyone used a 110 as a plow? I saw numerous examples in Europe, but none here. I am pretty sure some of the NADA Series were put to work doing this also.

Questions I have are:
- PTO drive vs. hydraulic off the belt system
- does anyone have any plow mount parts?
- Am I nuts and would be better off sourcing an old MF, IH or Ford 8/9N with a three point and blade?

It's a shame even used skid steers are so pricey!


Not that we will get this much snow:

Here is an old snow plough thread. It will work the same as a plow...

The current owner said he would sell.

It's going to be a bad winter if you get any snow at all in the Florida Keys

most plows now days are electric /hydraulic. No need to tap into pto or steering pump. Just run a battery cable.

Here in Va the triangle is for "slow moving vehicles" only but a simple "Farm Use" plate bought @ any country store or Tractor Supply allows road use of an unregistered vehicle for farm uses.

After Irma, nothing would surprise me in the Keys. We are buying up where my wife's family is from, but across the river in Iowa. Property taxes are very low, there is a decent sized metal outbuilding, room for a range, a few trails to hike/UTV on, and room for dogs and Rovers and any of you knuckleheads traversing the midwest.

Nomar- I will PM, thanks.

RoverTrader- Let me know what it is you have, unless it IS the 88 with plow, if so I'll take it!

Doug- In Iowa, I think just triangle is good. Will check. And did not know about these fancy newfangled electric plows! Last plow I ran was hydraulic on an F-250.

Actually it is the 88 ;-)
I bought it from an engineer's widow in the hills of Pa, where they used it to plow their mile long driveway, taught the kids and grandkids to drive, etc. I have not ever tried to even start the old girl, but it was reported as running when parked. PM your email and I will send pics.
