    Got my plow lights all hooked up on the front rack. Have the plow mount on with the plow. Just needs a good cleaning.

    Sweet!. I just about have the same quad. Can you take photos of your mount? I'd like to be able to switch my atv plow from one bike to the other without exchanging mounts.

    Here's my Honda.

    That cutting edge needs to be replaced! And, do you really need those Meyer plow whips to see where the blade is?:dizzy: LOL Nice Machine though. I had an old 88' Honda 300 4x4 with a 4' plow when I was 14...It was a tank!

    Thanks for the pics. That's the same type of mount that my Honda has on it. I modified it so it doesn't bolt to the A-arms. I didn't really like that part. I thought you had a different mount on your A-Cat. I want to make something that doesn't take away from suspension travel or ground clearance. Thanks, have fun this year!

    ya. And yes I have serviced the entire thing. Changed the differential oil. Engine oil and filter. Greased all fittings. And I use this as a sidewalk plow quad or as a plow that I can get at peoples driveways that I can't swing the truck into to plow. it is 2/wd but it pulls and pushes with no issues. Goes good through mud too.

    Ya thanks. I have had this quad since 2003. Started to plow with it in 2004. And I have been plowing with my trucks since 2000. Now I have my superduty which is a new truck plowing this year for me. But I have been told a superduty is the truck to buy to plow with. I had a 2000 chevy 3500 dually crew cab 4/wd diesel with 245kmi on it. And I had a spare truck to plow with. So I am set I WANT SNOW!!!!

    How does everyone like Arctic Cats? I have had nothing but problems with my Polaris' and I'm fed up. I really like the look of the Cats.

    The only polaris that are good are the sportsmans. This arctic cat has a ton of torque. A ton of power. And a ton of pushing power. I pull a 24ft bayliner with mine and it has no strain WHAT SO EVER. Pulls it like my truck does. I kno someone who bought a 12volt cigarette lighter thing for there quad but they cant use it and he is gonna give it to me so I am going to hook it up and get a beacon for my front rack. For when there is a state of emergency and I can go on the street with it leagally. I pushed 3 foot of snow last year with no prob. Had chains with no weight. The back tires didnt spin and it pushed the snow till it was over the blade. This thing I LOVE IT! And the last pic is from last sunday when me and 2 other friends went fourwheeling on the sacandaga lake. Never got stuck and i was in foot deep mud with 2/wd.

    Nice rides. You should fab a snow deflector on those deals.

    Id like to see someone set up some servos or actuators to control blade angles. Do those blades need any weight?

    i had one before. wish i kept it now im thinking of getting another one. this may sound pathetic but im starting to be too lazy to use a snowblower. i think the quad is quicker long as its only a few inches. you can also sit down on it and have a coffee cup holder. be great for walks. snowblower is better on deep stuff and placement but you have to walk and no cup holder.

    wow. i am getting lazy and pathetic. :dizzy:

    :rolleyes:

    You sound like me man. it is easier. Funner. And lazier :p. I am gonna put some kind of weight on it for back blading. Once your going foward and the blade digs into asphalt and gets it. It will scrap ice, snow, and compacted stuff.
