    I'm interested in making my own Spring loaded ATV plow but on a larger scale, just something simple, but i'm after some good pics and feed back on what design has worked the best for your applications. this won't be for commercial use, just to blast the parents,grandparents and of course my own driveway off a few times a year. any feedback would be appreciated, I realise I could just buy a well known model, but I have lots of steel kickin around and enjoy making things from scratch

    this is what I want to mount it to and have my front winch control depth. as far as pushing power is concerned it has that covered with enough gearing to get out and pass it in a slow walk 220:1prsport and is fully locked
