    I have a '12 Yamaha Grizzly and a 52" cycle county state plow. Should be a pretty sweet combination.

    On his behalf, he did say he's waiting for the plow kit to come in. When he said it ain't pretty, my first thought was scrolling down to see a beat up atv with a rusted up plow using a piece of rope to lift the blade. He out did my expectations. LOL

    PS, my atv and stuff is the same as last year. I am getting a Blizzard plow for my truck and a salt spreader. I signed on 8 new driveways and two private driveways. The private drives lead to the 8 homes I'm doing as well. In the end, anything up to 6" will yield over 1k. This is a per push deal with them all. If we are predicted to get a foot of snow, I'll more then likely be making multiple visits at the 1K per push deal. They are big wig doctors in 2+mil homes on top of a mountain! Their private driveway needs to be clear at all times.

    Letting the ATV do all the work ;)

    The atv is for plowing the driveways/small parking lot and sidewalks. Using the truck to transport it to the jobs that arent in the neighborhood

    Pic of mine from last year. Nothing has changed on it, except more miles on it from the summer. Love the quad, had it since '07. Would like to get some wings for the plow and make it go a little faster, but it does the job for me right now.

    I am using a 2012 Honda Foreman with power steering and a 60 inch state plow for most of my small plowing. I also have a 420 Honda Rancher with a 48" cycle country plow. I have a plow truck also for commercial jobs but I really enjoy using an ATV for most jobs. After 30 years of of plowing on a atv it is just in my blood. The power steering is a great advantage with all the weight of the plow.

    Nice setup
    Are them Honda's a true 4x4 or do they still have limited slip in the front

    The Hondas are a limited slip front end. It has always worked fine me. For $40 Highlifter makes a part that will turn most any Honda front dif into a full locker. I just have never had a need for full lock up on the front. I do understand that the 2012s have a better front differential.

    Bring on the Snow!!

    Been looking at the Eagle plow ETC (Power pivot), not sure if I will do it this year. Only thing new will be strobes (Smaller E3 type) and working on a backing plate for the rubber flap.
