sorry forgot built it all from scratch that is the third draft needles to say it works alot better than the first two . I plow the driveway in half the time my dad does with his atv. also I use the winch to raise and lower and I still have to get out and manually angle the blade but its ok I got a nice warm jeep to go back into.

nice job. I'm sure it's worth the price of manual adjustment for what a bought plow costs.

That's pretty cool...do you have it set up so it'll break-away if you slam into a crack or do you just pray you don't catch one? Our plows on the farm have springs set so if you catch a crack/curb/etc, the plow will break-away/fold from its path of travel rather than bend/break at the mount.

I learned the hard way why they do that last winter when I smacked into a crack while using one of our tractors with a front loader and royally tweaked the bucket...

If you click on the first picture you can see a set of springs that I would assume are break-away springs.

Very nice job!

to answer a few questions yes there are two springs on it so it does break away.
for all the materials used to build the plow it was only $320.00 for every thing. we used flat 1/8 for the face of the plow and the par were it rotates, 2" square tubing, you can buy blades, angle iron 3x2 and 2x2 peaces. we bent the angle iron and reinforced it with 3/4" plate, and we used a 3" c channel for mounting under the front bumper, also used 1" tubing for support going back into frame so mounts don't bend.
