"I felt strange paying a plow guy when I had a Ford Explorer at home. I picked up a SnowSport LT and I'm liking it pretty well. Takes about ten minutes to clear my driveway in the comfort of my heated cab. I'd recommend"

What is a Ford Explorer?

Is it possible to mount a plow to the front of a Ford Explorer? Absolutely! The Ford Explorer is a popular vehicle that is well-suited to carrying a plow and removing snow from driveways, streets, and parking lots. We've compiled a few frequently asked questions about the Ford Explorer and plowing:

  • Q: How will a Ford Explorer handle while plowing snow?
  • A: With close to (or over) 300 horsepower (depending on your engine) your Explorer has the get-up and go necessary to cut through mounds of snow like melted butter. With an incredible Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) and the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds, this Ford has the capacity to carry the load, and the force to keep it going.
  • Q: How large does a plow need to be to fit an Explorer?
  • A: The important thing to look for in a plow size is one that is wider than your vehicle’s track width. Ford Explorers measure in at 67" so anything 70”+ would be ideal. And as it turns out, every plow we sell on SPD is at least 80” wide so you’re good to go.
  • Q: How does the installation work?
  • A: Every plow we carry installs in one of two ways. Most commonly you would attach your plow to a front mounting hitch, this allows you to get it on and off quickly and easily. Some other snow plows include custom brackets which attach directly to the factory holes in your Explorer’s frame.
