Shoveling snow in the winter can be ruthlessly cold, hard on your back, and downright uncomfortable. Stop shoveling and get yourself a top quality personal hydraulic snow plow at a reasonably low cost to you. FirstTrax snow plows make keeping your driveway clean all winter long simple and easy.
FirstTrax does an outstanding job in constructing personal snowplows. They use a steel blade and powder coat it with industrial grade paint so you get years of service without rust or corrosion. A bright yellow finish looks sharp and adds visibility going down the road. All other plow components are then galvanized to keep the parts looking new for many seasons to come.
FirstTrax snow plows are easy to use with a hydraulic lift system and you can also choose to have a simple manual angling system or a hydraulic one. A floating knuckle and self leveling plate relieve stress on the snow plow and prevents bending and distortion of the blade. The wired remote control is straightforward with simple to use controls. The vehicle specific mounting brackets bolt up directly to the frame and are hidden to keep your truck looking great when the personal snowplow is not attached.
This great truck snow plow is packed with features. You have 3 different blade sizes to choose from – 80" x 20", 85" x 22", or 90" x 24". The fully assembled kit includes a galvanized scraper blade, heavy duty skid shoes, and bright red blade markers. Handy adjustable wheels attached right to the plow make the snowplow easy to maneuver when attaching or detaching from your truck as well as for summer storage.
Stop the backbreaking and cold work of shoveling snow and get your truck outfitted with a FirstTrax snow plow! You will be able to sip coffee and clean off your driveway at the same time!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I drive on the road with my snowplow attached to my truck/SUV?
A: To drive on the road with your snowplow attached, most provinces and states require the installation of a light kit with turn signals, and it must be fully operational while on the road.
Depending on the year and model of you vehicle, you may need additional components to install this feature. We suggest you have a trained technician wire in the plugs supplied at your local dealer. A safety chain is also required, which will not allow the plow to fall off the front of the truck. Always consult your local regulatory agency for their particular requirements.
Note: Driving at highway speeds with the plow attached is NOT recommended as it may cause your engine to overheat.
Q: Is an actuator or hydraulic lift system better than using a winch mechanism?
A: Yes, an actuator or hydraulic system offers a more reliable, repetitive-use mechanism than winches, which are typically known for acting up or burning out.
Q: Why is FirstTrax’s finish superior to other brands?
A: The hot dipped galvanize coating we apply is an extremely tough finish which doesn’t seem to mind too much about getting roughed up a little. We all know we’re pushing around a lot more than just fluffy snowflakes when clearing a path. Gravel, salt and who knows what other abrasive items are lurking below that white blanket of snow.
No, our product isn’t clear coated for that out of the box one day shine or tested at the salt water spa like our competitors, sorry no useless marketing schemes here.
Our hot dip galvanizing provides consistency. Our snowplows will look great the first year and the next, and the next…and the…well, you get the picture.

|The plow took a little over a month to arrive. There were items 3 items missing. The control box, the battery connector and the side markers. The box looked like it may have been opened in shipping so I'm not sure who's was at fault. Realtruck was very helpful contacting the manufacturer to get the parts replaced. First Trax sent the markers and the control box but neglected the power cord. It took a second set of calls and shipping before I received all the parts. This brought the wait up to 6 weeks before I finally was able to install the plow. Installation was a bit tricky. First of all, there was a bracket on the frame that was in the way and had to be removed. The second problem was the directions called for inserting a round spacer tube into a square hole in the frame. The spacer tube was to wide for the hole. I called the manufacturer and they said "people have had luck using a hammer". I tried with no luck. The tube was to big and the work space was to tight. (between the radiator and front grill) So the plow is now on the truck and working great. I had to shovel my long driveway 6 times during this saga but I am now looking forward to the next storm.|
|Purchased and shipping was easy. Plow is awesome. Have had two other commercial plows that weren't even close to the quality put into this one. The hot galvanizing is a great design opposed to the powder coating rust bucket plows I've had. There has been a lot of thought put into the design. The install of the mount was 1,2,3 and done in 30 min. with my wife handing me tools. All in all you can't miss with this one!|
|PERFECT FOR A RESIDENTIAL DRIVEWAY. A little awkward to angle due to the conversion capability to hydraulic angling. The pump is very powerful, lifts the plow in a split second. I priced a low priced name brand plow at 4200 dollars. A bit much for one driveway.|
