    yea Cycle Country makes a V blade, now in 50" and 60" width's, suppose to have Power wing adjustment also. Moose makes a 72" for UTV not ATV. but if you had a big ATV you might get away with running the Moose blade.

    here a Pic of an Old Cycle country blade on my even older 84 Honda Big Red.

    enjoy Sublime out.

    been a few post's on here about V blades I know the Old Cycle country v blades would not stand up to heavy pounding the adjust ment bars that set the blade angle will bend over time. If left in V for most plowin your fine but have it set at straight or angle and catch something hard with a leading edge the bars would bend it is a pain to take them off pound them out straight and then put back from what I have read.

    Here you got some pictures of v-plows for ATV that sells in Sweden.
    They even have a down pressure system on it.

    Hallo Sportsman 500.
    That is a universal control that you can mount where you want.
    We use to mount them on the handlebar.

    I noticed a powersport supplier in my area is selling a 66" v plow marketed under the American Manufacturing co. or Eagle plows. Does anyone have any experience with these? I thinking about upgrading to a v but I want one that will hold up. I'm really tough on equipment so it has to be strong. I can't find anybody in my area that carries Cycle Country products. Seems like a few years back everybody carried them.

    Thanks, Scotty

    It's manuel. This plow is a monster. The metal is about twice as thick as the polaris plow I replaced, but that's what I was looking for. The polaris plow I replaced was so beat up after one season I needed to do something. I broke one mounting bracket, and bent the plow bracket and plow. I don't think I'll be damaging this one. Now if it would only snow!

    Thanks, Scotty

    Scotty, that's awesome - more pics please! How wide when in V position? I have the Eagle/Tusk mount plate, push tubes, and 60" straight blade - I wonder if the push tubes are the same. Considering the swap for next season.

    I don't know the width in the v position, it's not much wider than my quad. Straight is 66" The one thing I will warn you about is the weight. It's heavy. When I winch it up, the front shocks depress a good 6 to 8 inches before the plow raises. I think I'm going to have to adjust the preload on the shocks. Also there are 4 different holes to adjust the heigth of the plow on the plow tube bracket to accomadate tire sizes. I going to the bottom hole, that should give me a inch or 2 when I lift it. I have a tilt bed snowmobile trailer to haul it on. I'm a little worried about the angle of the bed when I load and unload. I do have a set of ramps I can use if all else fails.
