    I just found something laying out in the woods that I haven't seen in over 30 years... my very first plow !!! I remember I bought an oxy-acet torch set right out of high school, and I had one of the very first 3-wheelers that came out (before there were any 4-wheelers), and I sliced an old barrel down length-wise,... and waalaaahh !!! Complete snow plow!! Check it out,... extra-long cutting edge... built-in wings... (Then them Blizzard boys came by & stole & developed all my great ideas,... :D :D )

    I gas-welded some type of bracket on the back of this... & built some kind of U-frame that went around the front tire & hinged on the foot pegs of the 3-wheeler, but can't remember exactly what I did to lift it.. I don't think it lifted more than a few inches,... but at least the thing didn't weigh 998 lbs.... :D :rolleyes:

    That was some pretty good run whatcha brung engineering using the barrel cut down there boss. I like it. Needs a cutting edge and today you can lift it with the winch on the 4 wheeler.

    I bet you could sell those on ebay...lol

    Nope, no plow for the quad,... I've killed a couple over the years plowing with them... we get too much snow here for these things,... you just wind up abusing them. But, if that's all ya got, it beats the heck out of nothin.....
