CAN A RANGER PLOW SNOW?

Motorhead Mark Lester
12/11/2014

 

Dear Motorhead:

I enjoyed Luke's recent review of the Ranger 570. I do have one additonal question about the 570 not covered in his review.

I live in upstate NY and would like to know if this model is capable of serious snow plowing?

Thanks,

Ken



Ken:

Thanks for your email!

The 570 mid-size Ranger will capably plow snow for residential use.

Your question used the word "serious" in relation to its snow plow potential. IMO if I was buying a Ranger to do heavy duty snow removal I would go for the XP 900 Ranger with its "shuttle shifter" that isolates Lo and Reverse from the shift pattern and has a heavier and bigger footprint.

The 570 is a very capable vehicle but for industrial work I would consider the XP.

Hope this helps,

Motorhead Mark
