Stop breaking your back shoveling snow this winter with FirstTrax Prosumer snow plows. The Prosumer snow plow is the fully hydraulic version of FirstTrax's Home Series snow plow. Using a FirstTrax snow plow will make keeping your driveway clean simple and easy, all winter long.
FirstTrax is a first-rate snowplow manufacturer. They use a steel blade and powder coat it with industrial grade yellow paint so you get years of service without rust, plus added visibility going down the road. All other plow components go through a hot-dip galvanizing process to keep the parts looking new without worrying about paint chipping or being rubbed off.
Prosumer snow plows are super easy to use, with a hydraulic lift to raise, lower, or angle your snow blade. A floating knuckle and self leveling plate relieve stress on the snow plow and prevent bending and distortion of the blade. The wired remote control is simple to use. Custom vehicle mount brackets bolt up directly to the frame and are hidden to keep your truck looking great when your plow is not needed.
You get plenty of options to choose from with the Prosumer plows. You have 3 different blade sizes to choose from – 6'8", 7'1", or 7'6". The fully assembled kit includes a galvanized scraper blade, rubber snow deflector, heavy duty skid shoes, and bright red blade markers. Handy adjustable wheels attached right to the plow make it easy to maneuver when attaching or detaching the plow from your truck, not to mention putting it away for the summer.
So stop the backbreaking and cold work of shoveling snow and have some fun with the white stuff. FirstTrax Prosumer snow plows are guaranteed to make your winter-time chores a blast!
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 bad first: it was NOT easy to install on my '11 Z71 Avalanche. I had to modify the plastic trim a lot and the instructions were basically unreadable so I had to hold each bracket up to my frame one at a time to figure out how it all went on. It doesn't just slide on and off either, I have to lift it a little with a floor jack. It came without the controller. |
The good: I called RealTruck and told them about the missing controller and they had one to me right away. Once it's installed, it seems to work exactly as you'd expect...even better than I honestly did. It looks much heavier duty than I thought it would be. It's a lot of plow for the money and to have real truck stand by it...totally worth it.
