    looks to me like a little air shock you should be able to do something like that yourself for about half the price

    Sublime is right, the CC system works well, does require a winch to operate, easily attaches to CC plow and is only $100.

    nbenallo33, the air shock doesn't have enough stroke to absorb the movement of the ATV syspension and get the blade very far off the ground. Instead you would use a coil over shock but then you would have to fab the mounting brackets on the ATV and plow plus the ones that have enough stroke run about $100 each and the ones I am familiar with you have to buy in pairs. The CC system is cheap compared to going the home built route.
