    I'm looking at this quad to plow my driveway. I dont know a thing about quads or how well they work for plowing snow, so looking for some advice. Its a 2005 Honda Rancher AT. Almost new and a good price - I think?

    Thanks.... you have the same type? What do you consider a good price?
    Can you tell from the pic if that blade is a decent one?

    we have a couple of older (10 to 12 years old Kawasaki ATVs).... One of them is a 4 wheeler like the one in your pic.... the other is a heavy duty 6 wheeler with a little mini dump feature.... Anyway... on small rigs like these, a blade is a blade.. we're not talking serious applications here. It's not like an F450 with a Western Contractor Grade 9 foot plow, your know? Maybe look on EBay at other items similar or other auction sites to see what going rates are to something similar to the one you're looking at.

    It depends on what you are plowing with it... my Polaris went through 2 clutches plowing my drive and a few friends

    My 2004 Arctic Cat 500 4x4 worked good for plowing. I don't plow a very big area with it, just a few places a can't fit my truck.
