    Pulled out my blade today and hooked it up to the honda. I also pulled just the blade part of a 48" blade that i got when we made a vee for a friend. I started grinding down the 48" and i think i'm going to make removable wing for it similar to the boss wings. That was it will be a scoop and i can take them off to do sidewalks. I'm going to make all new push tubes for it so i can interchange it with my 60" if need be. I'll post some pictures when i work on it more.

    I even ordered a winch today for my rancher, had the mount off of my brothers old rancher so i figured i should just buy one. So this year i should have 3 complete blades available for 2 different 4-wheelers.

    And to think its only July and I want to plow but the grass is still growing so i shouldn't complain.

    yea I have done that for the last 6 years and over time I have found out that then my gloves get wet and then it just makes the next 2 hours of plowing snow with wet and cold gloves miserable.
    heck as it is now I'll make 3 pass's at something instead of getting off and moving the blade to the proper angle.

    I also got a soft cab for the ATV this spring and so getting on/off alot for blade position changes will become more a pain in dealing with the Cab door. So I was thinking the being able to angle from the seat is the way to go. ATV cab from http://www.atvcabs.com/ I got mine new in box never used for around $200,

    been saving up a little each month to pay for the Electric Angle.

    somebody had a thread on here about the pain of getting in/out of the ATV to angle the blade with there soft cab so I am gonna forgo that dilemna.

    will have some reports and stuff once the white stuff starts flying.
    sublime out.

    yea I know its Pricey but I wanted the ease of changing blade angle from the seat and havent' found a good way to due that yet.

    Saved up money from my recerational monthly money pool which is money earned from odd jobs that I due.

    Some pictures..

    Winch came today, ordered Sunday off ebay but its new paid 277 shipped. Pictures aren't good because of the sun. I had more but they didn't save.

    I'm trying to make my wings now, i think i'm just going to add about 6 inches on each side but just make them straight and easy to pull off to go down small sidwalks

    Got first coat of red on today.

    BTW...the wings are not pushed together to let the paint dry, didn't want people thinking there will be a gap.
