    I have a feeling after all the snow some people got they will think they are gonna make a fortune next year plowing....what if it doesn't snow?
    Most people plow for years to make money or to break even....some years there is no snow to plow
    Dealer service and support is more important then brand when it comes to plows

    I think your talking about a Honda Atv. Recon, a plow for it will run about $400 plus $125 for a manual lift or $150 for an electric winch. Check out e-bay for plows, their are so good prices on them, just watch out what shipping cost are , some sellers lower the plow price but make it up on shipping.

    If you are planning on putting a plow on a Honda Pick-up, good luck. Plan on spending $3500 to $4500 for something that will be any good.

    I'm with Hydro. Last year we had so much snow that it was hard to keep up with it. This year, we have had 2 plowable snows to date while everybody else was in snow heaven or hell, which ever you prefer.

    What I've learned on this site..

    Tyler, how much of an area do you need to clear snow from? That's a big question. I live in VA and was thinking along the same lines you are. However, after some wise counsel on this site I've come to the conclusion that for next season it may be wiser to invest in a single stage snow thrower before making the jump to a plow. :cool: As Hydo stated, we may not get the volume of snow next season that we did this year in our area, and if so, it will be a lot easier to store a compact blower rather than an ATV plow - not to mention having to purchase a winch as well.
