    All I have is the Warn plow and winch on my Grizzly. I'm going to install a angle actuator on it hopefully over the summer. It works great so far. Here's a pic. :)

    most people will tell you that the Moose Blades are the best built and will take the most abuse over time with out giving you problems.

    For Sidewalk's I would think the 50" County blade would be the best.

    and there used to be a company that made a power angle kit for the Moose blade's they don't sell them any more.

    check out the ATV Plow with Wings thread, been lots of talk there with ALC-GregH on the Power angle kit that I and Skywagon run on the Moose blades that we have.

    ya gotta be fast on the trigger.

    how much of a difference are you talking about? and at what speed due you want to be moving at?

    On parment I have not had any problems. I due a couple of paths through the grass from the house to garage and then back to my reserve wood pile that have up/downs that will stop me if dont' pick the blade up fast enough for these I usually creep it along at 2-3 MPH and can bring blade up/down when I need to. Also I have back drug these areas to remove the snow as back draging with the blade down seems to just skip over the terrian change better.

    plenty of pics on my cardomain site that show my plow areas,

    is that what you wanted to know?
