New to forum, but 3rd season plowing.

    Hey all,

    I'm new to the forum, but I've been using my ATV for a few seasons now doing mostly driveways.
    I use a 2006 Polaris 500HO with a 48" Glacier II plow. To help keep me warm, I picked up a cheap ATV cab.

    Although it works great, I spent nearly every night (after work) for 2 months plowing out neighbors driveways (some as long as 50 yrds). I also put nearly 400 miles on my ATV, so I'm looking at picking up a truck with a plow, and just using the ATV for light duty.
    Our problem here is wind and drifting snow, so plowing is almost a full time job.

    Here's some pics of my setup. I also have a 12v heater, and XM Sat radio on my ATV, but no pics.

    The drift in the picture was collected in less than 8 hours. I had plowed right before I went to work that morning.

    I purchased an old Dodge with a Western plow this weekend. The plow works well, and is in surprisingly good shape for it's age. The truck is wore out, but for $1000 I can't complain.
