A snow pusher or containment plow is a type of snowplow that can contain a significant amount of snow compared to truck snowplows. Snow pushers have sideplates to help contain snow. Snow plows do not.
They are commonly used with construction, landscaping, or agricultural machines such as wheel loaders, backhoes, skid steers and compact tractors. While often used for commercial applications, snow pushers have also become popular among homeowners, especially those with long driveways or barns on their property.
