    Your system looks like a Cycle Country or Kolpin system. You might check to see if either of them don't already have a back blade that will fit your system. Probably save you a lot of time and maybe some money.

    Its a CC brand with Polaris name on it They make a blade looks like mini tractor blade that stick out away from the atv about 3-4' and I dont want that I want mine to hug the atv and it wont save me money thats for sure
    Today found me a 48'' snow blade for $25

    Im trying figure out if I want it to trip or just be a fix mount plow
    Being trip blade will be less stress on on the atv
    Fix mount I'll build it as a box blade the box ends will help it jump cracks some what

    There's a reason why they have it that far away. Go ahead and make it as close as possible and you'll find out why they keep it away. No need to reinvent the wheel.

    And if you know why they have that far back Do tell
    I'll tell why its because there rear blade can angle

    You won't have room for all the snow that builds up as you drag it. It will pack into the back of the wheeler and you'll wind up getting stuck. You seem to know it all though so take what I say with a grain of salt.

    Only dragging the length of the ATV away from the garage door so it can be push with the front plow
    Help doing driveways getting closer to the house less time on the shovel
    On sidewalks if the first pass with front plow doesnt clean well then make sec pass with rear plow Or plow with both plows down

    Getting little closer tonite getting figured out I raised the lift arms on the 2 point part so we get more height out of the 3 point

    if all your doing is dragging the length of the ATV to clear out the Garage door, I'd skip the trip aspect of the plow you'r not gonna be going fast enough to break stuff.
    you might want to add end wings to contain spillage also.
    Just my thought's and if you are worried about the trip aspect on your 3point system you should have a pin you can remove that will allow the 3 point to float up. that way if your going with the rear down at speed the blade can jump up if you due catch an edge or something.

    here's a pic of my rear blade setup.

    What I was thinking but Im not the one be running it Thought in case my SW crew wants use it more on different area might want it to trip Never know what might hit Im going fix where it will trip and not trip
    Wings o yes going put them on I have them cut out and ready to put on With them off it is easier to get backets for front of the plow

    Its done beside paint and cutting edge and plow wings
    I tested in gravel and work will and would trip with extra down pressure
    Think I going change the spring location move them to the inside the A frame Where I have them now they stick out to far from the plow and wont fit on trailer with back board in place
