I seen it thought it would be cool and called the people up and bought it. can someone give me any info on one these things. it says it is hydraulic I dont know what would have to run through the atv. here are the pics of it that the women had on craigslist. I will have better pics tonight when I go get it.

    I know that Cycle country makes a 3pt system for ATV, Heck I have one under the work bench in the garage that has yet to be opend and put on an ATV.
    I got a good deal on it and have plans for it to have a back blade and mount my ATV Snow blower up front I want to due this to a Honda Foreman but I need the $$ to buy another Foreman for doing this 2. I dont' wanna mess up the one I have as it is my first line of Snow removal and I can't afford to have it go down during snow removal season.
    might want to try and find out What type of Quad it came off of as from Cycle country's site they have different mounting system per different quads.

    nice score,

    so you gonna put this on the Other ATV?

    i think it would be easier to put a linear actuater in place of the hydralic cyliner rather than mess with adding a hydro pump and everythin on the atv

    they said the thing worked in the summer. I am gonna put my jump it on it tomarrow and see if it works. if it does I need to get a switch to power the thing up and down because that is what it is missing.

    go to radio shack and get a 2 pole, 3 postion switch. i got my swtch from there to use on my 12v actuator for my home made 3pt towable trailer. i have a blade and a earthcavator. easy to wire the switch.

    I got a few brand new 3 pole switches outside in the garage I got from work (fringe benefits). The thing is confusing as all hell to figure out which end is up and which is down. here are some pics of it on quad temporarily the way I think it goes.

    Cycle Country 3pt Hitch,

    Mounting Kit for Cats,
    http://www.cyclecountry.com/ThreePointMounts/tabid/94/Default.aspx?Brand=Arctic%20Cat

    looks to me from the Pics you have the 3pt positioned correct.

    ON the pic of the blade it kinda looks like the had that mounted Backward on the 3pt so you went in Reverse to plow the snow?

    looks like some other linkage is also missing form the system also.

    good luck with this.

    I awaiting your results as this will inspire me to get my set up going.

    Wish I could find a nice quad for $1000.00 was it?

    sublime out.

    At first I thought the back blade was there so you could push snow in reverse... that would be an awesome setup for doing parking lots! I hope this works out for you!

    I should have it done tonight. I am gonna make wings for my plow now that I have the back blade for sidewalks. I have my control mounted and all I have to do is wire the control into the acuator and battery, make a mount to attach to frame for extra support, and go use it :)

    that looks like it has no down pressure...

    It probably weighs a ton! Lol

    It has down pressure because it doesn't raise like the plow on the front where you can bring it up by hand even if your winch is out all the way.... I think it attaches at three points so that if it's down it down. Correct me if I'm wrong.
