E-bike powered bicycle snowplow

Added a 500 watt ebike kit for plowing. Just testing it out on summer rides. Have done flat terrain and today went up a canyon using the motor while pedaling. Bike is 76 pounds and on medium power it will do around 20kph. So I kept it on full going up the steep parts in top gear pedaling. Motor bogs down so I pedal just fast enough to keep the motor from working too hard. 

 

Very fast climb. Since bicycle plowing is a little like climbing hills, it provided a test to see how well it ran. Don't think I'll have problems using it to plow this next winter.
