Front Hitch Mounted Receiver Hitch For a Residential Snow Plow On a 2018 Ford F-150


I was just curious. Do you have to level out the truck to install this and use with snowplows? I own a landscaping company that does snow removal in the winter and right now Im plowing driveways with my zero turn mower and snow blowers and Im frankly getting tired of being out in the cold. So this was the next option for my 2018 f150 3.5 ecoboost. I was just curious if the truck had to be leveled out to use this with a snowplow? Thanks for the help

When attaching the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31083 on your 2018 Ford F-150 you do not need to have a leveling kit, but I do recommend some Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs # CSS-1094F to help support the extra weight that will be on the front of your F-150. These will help support your suspension and cushion bumps better as you plow.

The SnowBear Proshovel Snowplow # SB324-140 is the plow that I recommend for you. It can be operated from either the in cab remote or the wireless remote that is included. The electric actuator means you do not have to worry about winch straps freezing up or breaking in the cold, wet conditions that it will experience.

The SaltDogg Electric Hitch-Mount Salt Spreader # 337TGSUV1B mounts to your rear receiver and allows you to carry 4.4 cubic foot of salt to spread as you are plowing. It to is controlled from inside your cab so that you stay warm. The spreader will tilt down out of the way so you can still access your tailgate when needed.
