We Are Lake of the Woods Brand® Snow Plows
When Dean, Shirley, and Dave Wiersma get an idea, it is not long before they find a way to make it happen. They already produce an extensive line of tackle and other complimentary fishing items, but realized that even the best prepared angler needs a cleared roadway across the ice for winter fishing. Connecting with an individual who was ready to retire and close down his shop, they brought that business to their home place at Tom’s Tackle, Inc. just north of Baudette, MN. The business of making snowplows……and Lake of the Woods Brand® Snow Plows was launched.
The manufacturing of the plows started in a single stall garage located in the same building as their fishing tackle business. But as the business grew demanding more space, a new building was constructed. An Open House was held mid-September 2015 to give the public a first-hand view of the plows and the facility.
These snowplows are unique in themselves. These plows not only push the snow but move it up and out of the way. These are ideal and actually designed for clearing the winter road ways on the frozen lakes and rivers to get to the fish houses. They can also be modified as street plows.
Plows come in 3 custom sizes:
The largest plow is ideal for the ½, ¾ and one-ton trucks and is the typical size used by resorts that offer winter ice fishing.
The mid-size can be customized to your application depending on your vehicle. It works well for the side by side UTVs and small pickups, even the ½ ton or ¾ ton trucks, if looking for a lighter weight plow.
The smallest size would be used on four-wheelers for those smaller clearing jobs; works great for driveways and sidewalks.
All sizes of the Lake of the Woods Brand® plows are finished in powder coat and can be customized to fit the specifications of the customer. Different styles of mounts are available as well as hydraulic lifts (hydraulic proves to be more trouble-free than the winch style) but the plow can be purchased separately. These plows are stationary plows (will not adjust from a straight plow to a V plow) which only adds to the strength of the unit.
Our plows are now manufactured to fit, not only our mounts but a Boss mount. If you already have a Boss plow and want one of our V-plows, you can use the mount you already have! All plows are made to order so please call 218-434-0260 with any questions.
From the cutting and forming of the steel through the entire fabrication process, it is truly a homemade product, worthy of the name – Lake of the Woods Brand®.
