    I have a Honda Foreman 350 ATV that we use for the sidewalks in an industrial complex. The employees I have are rough on the plow and have bent the frame and push tubes. It is a Cycle Country 48" with manual lift. I never was very impressed by it's construction. Where can I get a more professional grade ATV plow? What brand do you recommend? I also would like to know where to get a cutting edge with made from AR steel.

    I have an American/Eagle plow. I bent one frame, but then got another, beefed it up, and it's been fine. I also cut the push tubes shorter so the plow isn't so far in front of the ATV. I took a good 8" or so off.

    just bend them back to the right position and add some strips of steel to reinforce them and maybe hire some guys you can trust with your equipment

    AR stands for Abrasive Resistant. It is what cutting edges are normally made from for extended life.
