    This is what I ended up with when I had some time and parts to spare. I started with the '90Honda TRX200 2wd quad that's in beautiful condition and never gets used, an old Craftsman tractor plow and a Harbor Freight winch, put the three together and came up with this:

    The plow wasn't going to be big enough angled to cover the width of the quad, so I actually spent money buying the sheet metal and flat bar to make some extentions:

    I think for the little snow we get here and the little use it'll get that it will stay together fine and maybe even be fun. I added 10" to the 42" blade for a 52" total. It's 2wd, but I have some tractor chains and room in the trunk for weight, so we'll see how it does. I'll get some better pics one of these days.

    Thanks. Yeah, these things are seriously goofy looking and this one is in really nice shape. I bought it to goof around at a coworker's property, rode it maybe twice 6 months ago and it's spent most of its time in garage since. It should be a good time in the winter, plow or no plow...

    weight and chains will due you wonder's.

    with weight and chains I was good up to 6" of snow after that I had to have something bigger to get the job done but it was fun in the small stuff.
    have fun and enjoy them old honda's.

    I used it to plow the driveway yesterday and it worked great! It was so much fun that I ended up doing the edge of the street and a few other things around my house. I'll get some pics one of these days. Have fun out there
