I would be careful putting a plow on a smart. I would guess the traction control would go nuts, and not sure there is enough weight there to make the plow work, and the weight of the plow could be an issue. but that being said, anything is possible. Make sure the structure that mounts the plow can handle the load and strain!

I would think an ATV plow might work out as long as it was for light duty, stay away from plowing parking lots.

2 dealers in Ohio, 33 Recreation in Rockford, and Kuhn Sales in Fostoria.

Interestingly, smart plows are actually more common than you'd think. Just get an ATV plow or a plow designed for small vehicles like a Rontex.

Looks like Rontex doesn't export to the US. Get an ATV plow, it's basically the same thing.

I'll bet all those smarts also have studded snow tires also!
Wish I could find studded snows in the US, I'm due for new ones next year.

run some screws into the tire tread. Used on ice racers all the time.
