I haven't done it on my plow but I was going to get a piece of metal that would overlap the top edge of the blade and have a shop put a bend (maybe 25-30degrees) so it would push the rubber flap down just a bit to help contain and roll the snow better. As it is now, it will try to push the flap back some in heavy snow.

Yeah, that's what I am making to see if it helps, just gonna try 10* for now (any more than that and when the plow trips it could be interesting)

I love my horns in the snow, I leave all the other guys I ride with just sitting there, its almost like a snowmobile cause they ride on top and don't dig like mud tires.

I did some research and found I can buy a simple spring washer to go in the front differential of my Honda Foreman to make the front end fully lock up when real 4 wheel drive is needed. The cost is only $8.24 for the new washer.

Check on the Honda ATV forum. There is a thread on how to do this as well as the part number that you will need.

Here's my setup...

I've owned it since new in '06- 2006 Kawasaki Prairie 360 4x4 with a 54" Cycle Country Plow- have plowed a lotta driveways with it (before I got my trucks)- works great! Now my brother runs it for me in storms to plow all our drives close to the house- awesome for small drives and moderate snowfalls (struggles a bit with heavy snow or accumulations more than 6" or so).

Here's a pic when she was new- looks basically the same now with a couple more scratches (trailriding in the summer )....

They do quite well. I air down the fronts to 3 lbs and the rears to 2 1/2 lbs. I also have weight for the racks, but really haven't needed it... yet!

I dont run any weight since I have rear plow on
Maybe some day I'll find out
Should go better then what I had

Last week I installed a Thumb Switch I think its ready but since there is no snow More time I have to do things to it
Thinking about installing a Safety kill switch for the winch

I dont run it my sidewalk crew does.

make sure you have some weight for the back and make sure your tires aren't too worn down.
also you may want to purchase some extra fog lights for the front of your rack as extra work lights
makes a huge difference plowing at night
