    Hey took plow off my truck and now thinking about getting an Atv with a plow just to do the few driveways I do plow. Is there an Atv plow out there that has power/electric angle system out there?

    Hey trod - Have you seen this? http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/sno/4264434952.html

    It's quite a drive for you from the QC but I haven't been able to beat that price. The power pivot alone is $400 shipped on Amazon. Just make sure they make a front mount for your machine. I almost pulled the trigger on it but then decided that my current set up would be fine until I can get one of the new Boss setups.

    boss also has a ATV plow Power left/right up/down not sure about downpressure.

    Warn as already posted.

    you can get a moose or cycle country plow and add the fuse powersports turn system. Then use a winch for up/down or if you want down pressure get the Mibar lift system.

    what type of area are you plowing and what type of atv are you thinking about getting?

    Driveways. I bought a plow for my 1500 and didn't have funds to take the necessary means to upgrade my vehicles suspension and didn't like how it felt on my truck. I will be buying this plow just to get through this season the figure something else out next year.

    Holy cow have I opened a can of worms. The plow I'm interested in comes with cmp plow. The one in the craigslist above has less than perfect reviews. I've seen a few guys online mention fabricating an angle function by installing an actuator....... Decisions devisions

    FWIW, I had power angle with my Cycle Country setup, which coincidently I got for free in '07 when I bought the quad. After 3 storms, the cable snapped. I found it easier to use an eye bolt to switch the angle. It was nice when I had it, but man I'm not that lazy.

    Read bad things about power pivot. The new one is pro pivot. If you knw what you are doing you shouldn't need to angle it that much anyways

    Have power angle on one of the UTVs that I use done with an actuator. Also use an actuator to raise and lower the plow too, also has down pressure which is nice.

    You got any pictures of that set up? What do you use to power it?

    No pics. It is fairly simple. three 12 volt actuators, 2 for turning and the other for lifting and lowering. Rocker style toggle switches to control the actuators. If I remember when I head over to the shop tomorrow, I will take pics.

    It would be well worth the trouble to check out the Boss ATV plow. I saw one and was very impressed with quality compared to the other regular brands. I would heavily discourage you from doing any kind of add-on cobb-job. Buy the right piece of equipment from the get-go if you are in business.

    Lol Cobb-job. If it works just as effective and is as durable what's the difference? Besides not having a sticker on it that says boss.......

    Mooches

    Hate to break it to you, but my uncle must have brought the utv down to his house. There was a SS in the place where the utv is usually parked. Next time I get a chance to talk to his son, I will see if he can take some pics and send them to me.
