There's never been an easier way to get kiddos outside to help with snow plowing. RC snow plow trucks exist, and they're perfect for kids who love monster trucks and snow. These fun gadgets are typically under $100, but you can even find a few options under $50.
Best Remote Control Snow Plows
This RC truck is available for $99.95. The removable front shovel moves up and down for powdery snow removal. The rear crane can even rotate 360 degrees for rescuing mini coupes. It can easily go over pavement and icy pathways at 1 MPH. The 2.4 GHz remote allows the snow plow to move forward, backward, left, and right.
Batteries are included.
Customers love it. A customer gave it five stars and said, "Awesome looking piece of equipment for a grandson. Makes me wish I was that young again. They never had quality like that in my day."
It is advertised as a truck for dirt, but surely if it can move dirt, snow won't be an issue. I'd test it out on pavement! The metal toy is equipped with a 2.4GHz radio system to control it. Since this toy has "wheels" instead of tracks, it can put in a lot of work!
A customer gave it a five-star rating and wrote, "I'm still a boy at heart and never really outgrew my love for toy tractors. This product is a great way to bring back your inner child and just have silly fun and relax. The batteries last a long time and this front end loader can actually lift 7lbs."
Fisca's snow plow truck is Amazon's Choice for RC snow trucks. It can plow sand and light powdery snow easily. Keep in mind that it's not suited for large amounts of heavy snow. The specs are fantastic. It's made of metal and ABS plastic, making it super durable. Those LED lights will come in handy this winter!
It comes with a 6V 400mA rechargeable battery, a remote control, and one USB cable.
Check out the customer videos and photos added to the reviews. Not bad for $47.
Fistone's RC truck is only $49.99. Not too pricey! Consider this one for powdery snow and sand. The rubber tires are ready for rugged terrain! The toy can go backward, left, right, and forward. The radio control has a range of up to 300 feet, making this great for backyard play.
It comes with one shovel loader, one transmitter, one battery, and one USB charger.
Many customers have fun using it for loose soil. Hey, maybe you can get some light yard work done with it? A customer gave it a five-star rating and wrote, "I "garden" for 2-3 hrs at a time. Dig a hole for plants with exivator, use this bad boy to load the dump truck, use a crane to lift in the plant, dump back the dirt, pack it in with exivator bucket."
This truck has no limit to any direction! Use the RC truck for moving sand, dirt, and snow from one location to another. It's equipped with a 3-in-1 metal shovel, drill, and claw for outdoor play (and light work).
It can go forward, backward, left, and right, plus the cab can make full turns! There's no limit to any direction. It can play for 25-35 minutes on a full charge. Be sure to buy batteries for the remote control.
