    I was wondering if any of you have pictures (before & after preferably) of driveways that have been cleared with atv plows? I want to see the quality that these plows bring to the table.

    Thanks in advance.

    I Don't have any Pics that are a good before and after of my driveway area's but if you click on my winter plowing saga Link in my sig your find pics of the areas that I due.
    All done with an ATV and Plow, and some with my ATV Blower. I hardly ever put down salt Unless we get a layer of Ice dumped on us.

    and some of my drives are drove on before I get a chance to plow so I will get packed snow to try and pull up also.

    sublime out.

    gravel Drive

    This is one of Drives that I do. Base is 1 1/2 in. rock so I leave about an inch of snow to start the season, Then after the base freezes i plow right on top.

    some of both though once you c pics of the Down Pressure system all pics after that I have been done with the DP system but for what its worth for the DP only really shines if your trying to scrap up packed snow or backdragging snow away from a Door way where you can't get behind to push with the ATV. I really can't tell the difference from when I had just the Winch on the blade for up/down VS when I put the DP system on.

    just my thoughts.

    Sublime.

    I use a polaris 500 HO with a 60" glacicer plow. No shoes on blade. Have had dual over head strobes now i've also added 4led strobes on the back.

    I plowed this with my recon 250 2wd. It was very wet, heavy snow!

    Just curious, how long did it take to plow that drive? I'm trying to get a basis of how long it is going to take me to do mine.

    Here are a couple pics of my horseshoe shaped driveway that I plow with my AC 300 4x4 with a 50" Moose plow. Its a gravel driveway so I do set the skids accordingly.
