Going to pick up a couple of plows in Ann Arbor. Going to stop at Cabelas on the way. If I wasn't going to spend 2k tomorrow I would have myself a little shopping spree (if prices were right).

Phil,

I am going to be experimenting with a zero turn plow this winter. I will let you know how it goes. Everyone wanted $550 to $1,100 for one and a dude up in Mich had one he threw in with another plow I was buying for $100 more.

Drive safe, don't get lost in Cabela's, and don't forget to wave if you see you know who :D.

Oh and park in a public hunting spot just so the Michiganders can bitch about Ohioans coming up there to hunt lol.

Yeah I really do like Michigan. The UP is a place to go roam some nice wild areas and the mushroom hunting is AWESOME!

Made it! Perfect whitetail habitat. Drove three hours to get here and didn't see a single deer in the fields. Saw a few blinds being towed around and a few guys in the woods but that was it. Now to pick up the plows.

Been hard at it Beener and just now saw this thread. I will be interested to see how it turns out. We have a couple of those Dixie Choppers but never considered any plows. I just use a couple of utility quads with plows on them. My prediction is they will work great on most light snows. Should be very agile. I would think if we get a wet/heavy snow you will have traction issues. Hope it works out for you!

Wheel weights and chains came with it. My parents get to use my quad :tantrum: Dad plows for a few older neighbors so I have been just pushing it down with the trucks.

Watched a guy in Cleveland last year during our "blizzard" pushing piles of pretty wet stuff 3 ft high. The only thing I saw him doing out of the ordinary was getting a run at the big drifts....he needed the momentum. He had chains but no weights.

I need to break down and buy a cheaper plow truck.
