Im from the northeast, USA. I want to get a plow for my atv. I bought a new house and I have a 200' drive way, which is pretty flat. Can you suggest any sites for plows and lifts.

plows

There are lots of brands and features.

Moose is heavy guage and different blades fit the push tubes. mount plate is model specific.

Warn has been around awhile. generic push tubes ,mounts are model specific and has features like an extension/offset and electric lift called an actuator.

quadivator brand mounts to trailer hitch and straps a rubber pad to the skid plate with straps to the front rack.. a little hokey but fits anything

swisher brand mounts to the a-arms so the weight isn't carried by the frame, has dump bucket and pallet fork option.

kimpex has their own, mtv has their own, cmp has been around a long time as well as cycle country, just to name a few.

some include a hand lift, some it's an option, some don't do it at all and keep in mind it's alot of wear on a winch (especially plastic bodies on the Warns) and controllers if you go that route. BTW a synthetic rope is a good idea to save wear and tear on the winch cable too...

My local Honda dealer sells Kimpex plows. Anyone familiar with them? I have a winch but am leaning towards a manual lift as long as it doesn't turn out to be a pain. Any thoughts? Thanks.

I have a 54" quadivator easy to put on an take off ,iI replaced the front straps with turn buckles and it is very solid works great and I work it hard,the nice thing about it is all the force is on the quad hitch and it takes 5 min to take off or put on and no brackets left on the quad

Have you considered making one? I made my own, I had the plow itself bent at the local metal shop but built the rest myself mith my mig welder.

With a winch, why would you go manual lift??? The winch is SO easy, and you can save $$$$ by not having to by the manual lift parts and pieces. Makes no sense to me....have you researched them to see prices??

I ended up getting a Warn plow that i will use with my winch, if it ever snows. As for a manual lift? I live on the coast, the Honda place is 75 miles away, the roads are hellish at the best of times and i don't really like going to town so i guess i like stuff that doesn't break. I thought about homemade with a piece out of a old furnace oil tank for a blade.

ClayPick: You have a smiley after the coment about the possibility of using an oil tank for a blade but I know a guy that did just that. It may not be the best lookin blade but it works fine.

I prefer the manual lift. It's way faster then a winch.
