    Here are a few pics of my trucks, blower and plows. Theres a honda rubicon with a blackline plow, with an atv cab. Then we have 3 honda blowers and a boss 8'6 plow. I fit the atv with plow, 1 blower and the saltspreader on the diesel with the boss hanging off the front, while the other truck that my brothers operate has 2 blowers with a bunch of shovels. The atv cab has by far been the best, cheapest investment. I used to get soaked doing snow, but now am dry as a bone. I'm going to fab up a platform to go onto the hitch for the blower so its not in the way of unloading the atv and plow. Enjoy.. Lots of red in these pictures! Here's a link with the plow on the truck. I don't have any action pics yet. It snowed 6'' a few days ago but didnt bring the camera. http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=60303

    What made you go with the plow on the cc instead of the reg. cab? Looks good though!

    Thanks. The box in the truck is the same in the backgroud of the snow pics. I use it for transporting firewood when the dump trailer has yard waste in it. I also use it for yard waste when needed, but rarely. The box holds 1 full cord where an 8ft bed will only hold a 1/2 cord.

    You mean the spreader? Great. It was a little on the expensive side, but well worth it. Come to think of it, any commercial spreader is expensive.

    I wanted a 4 door, and i needed a long bed, so thats what came out. I have 2 reg. cabs and like more room when going on trips and stuff. I work in the city for snow and the streets are tight. I havn;t had any problems clearing snow with this setup. Its not as bad as some might think. Because i go out in the snow when i use the blower and atv i get pretty wet sometimes. I have spare clothing, boots, gloves, hats, so when one wet pair is drying, i can throw on another pair. I also keep my spare tools in the truck too.

    Thanks. The only reason why i would get a plow on the 6.0 is for backup, which i doubt i will get anytime soon. I cant fathom someone driving around in my brand new truck and brand new plow lol. I thought about it, but like i said i dont like other people using my stuff and i dont have that many lots where i woudl need a backup My brothers maintain 25 of my residential accounts and while i do 4 large commercial accounts and 2 lots (one being a few streets) that my uncle subs me out for.

    how do you like the blackline plow on your honda? we are looking into outfitting our two Arctic Cat quads with plows and like the features of the blackline. i just have seen to many other plows bend mounts etc... are they built pretty well? cause our two quads weigh about 750-800lbs each.

    plowing with Crew Cab Long Beds Rules!! lol! (not always....)

    The blackline has been working pretty well ever since i bypassed the controll box. It comes with alot of wires with this black plastic box. I had it inside a bag so it wouldnt get wet and it overheated and fried. I ended up clipping off that box and just put a fuse there. Ever since then its been working pretty good. I need a new wear bar too. These plows are heavy though and will drain your atv battery if its not constantly running. I allways have a trickle charger hooked up to it when i'm not using it to keep the battery charged.


    Yep, pretty much. I use about 6 bags per storm, and my uncles uses about 6 as well. This is used for sidewalks and not any lots or roads. Their 14.50 a bag.
