    Not enough here in montgomery county pa . I thought we would get a good amount to use the quad but the driveway is slush and the storm is leaving the area so maybe next time it snows i will be pushing snow instead of water.:cry:

    Plowed here in Utah today. It wasn't a ton, but it was enough to need plowing. Really cold and dry! Gotta love desert snow.

    I was able to plow today with the new Warn Provantage 60" straight blade. Overall it did a great job, I'm really impressed with how easy it is to connect and disconnect the plow. So far the plow itself has held up well... unfortunately I cant say the same about my synthetic rope.

    It broke twice during the 1.5hours I was plowing, once was my fault, and the other was from me testing the plow before checking for burs. Unfortunately the rope had rubbed slightly on a bur before this storm even took place and it did a number on the rope. I knew it was going to snap and it was only a matter of time, but it made it through half my driveway before it finally did....

    Overall I'd rate the plow system great so far, the snow was light and fluffy so it wasn't really hard test but a good one for the first plowable event of my season.

    Since it was the first time I got to use the new plow, I was too busy having fun to remember to take pictures... if it keeps snowing and I go back out I'll try to snap a few

    worst day ever!!!! got to use the plow a little bit last night and worked great! But this morning went to start my quad and ran fine.

    Went inside for a break and turned the quad off while it was in 1st gear(I have electronic shift program)

    Came out side and quad wont start unless it was in nuetral and my ESP would let me shift down, this happens from a power problem usually because my winch uses alot of juice - after 10 minutes sitting in usually starts but not this time

    had to use the emergency manual shift - pain in the @ss

    couldnt plow at all, way too annoying, now i dont know what to do

    What kind of quad do you have? Check your owners manual. Mine had an override to allow you to start it in any gear. You have to have the brakes applied.
