    Is there any commerical demand for this machine and an operator? I know guys with trucks often get subed in. I was just wondering if this would be possible with me and my machine.

    I use that plow and a 722D. I do very small lots, 8 spaces, a couple of driveways and a bunch of large sidewalks/commercial entry stoops with it. My plow mounting tabs that were attached to the mold board snapped off the other day. Over-extended the trip springs and bent something else when i hit an angled parking stop...talk about a fast stop!

    That's the problem with the atv plows. I run a Ford front mount 6' mower. I take the mower off for winter and put a John Deere plow. It's heavy duty and the Ford is four wheel drive and diesel.

    I push that machine to the limit just doing snow with crust... you know, maybe 6 to 8" deep crust. Can't see how an atv would do anything. The ford is sometimes on it's knees and I'm asking more of it...lol ;)

    I havent tried plowing with my quad, But I did use it to get my S-10 unstuck once.
    And about killed myself doing it.
    I put a snatch strap on it and got a short run, it moved the truck at least 3 foot.
    but the quad stood right up then shot backwards. LOL

    when you say mold board what do you mean? on the plow or the mounting points on the machine?

    Where the eyelets are welded on the plow and the frame bolts to the plow. The machine is just fine.
