You see, plow kits for my 4 wheeler run $300-400 and, in my opinion, aren’t worth the few times it snows here in Kentucky even though our driveway is 1/4 mile long. None the less, my thriftful self kicked in and found a decent alternative — dragging a railroad tie at an angle behind my 4 wheeler. In about a half hour I had the driveway passable even with our rear wheel drive cars.
So here was my summary:
- Railroad tie – cost $10
- Pulling behind 4 wheeler instead of buying plow pkg – savings of $300+
- Swapping out kids on sleds for the railroad tie – Priceless
