    Hey all,

    I know the Chinese stuff is cheap, but it's all I could afford for the time being. I'm looking for a fairly inexpensive manual plow setup for my machine. Any ideas where I could get one from?

    Thanks

    I sent them an e-mail about their cost and if it would fit my ATV.

    Yeah I had to tighten everything when I took it out of the crate. I have to take it into the shop and have a tune up done to it though! Not many guys around here will touch these toys. I found a place about 40 minutes away, so I'll take it in once I get the snow moved from the trailer.

    i work on my own scoots, i have a good forum that covers it all. you should look into it if your handy but lacking confidence or knowledge imo youd be surprised what you find out there?

    Well I have the old ATV all tuned up, I think, need a new battery, the one that came with it is a piece of S^&T! I changed the oil with synthetic ATV oil for a wet clutch. tightening all the nut's and bolts, tightened the chain and bought a winch, which I will have to fabricate a holder for it. Not it's time to get the plow blade! I'm working on getting one from a guy on Kijiji. $330 Cdn with a swivel system 48" blade. The winch was $50.00 from Crappy tire.

    Well the winch is now mounted! I have a small hobby stick welder. The job is not the best by any means, but it works 100%.
