^^^^Good stuff here.Its a good idea in theory, but take it from a guy that has been plowing snow for a few eons now, leaving 8 inches of snow isnt going to work.
Once the blade gets full, and you are pushing all of that extra weight of the snow, you are going to do nothing but spin, ALOT. Plus the fact that you have it set up like a "V" plow and what you dont realize is that once you make that pile on either side of the road, its going to freeze in place, and the first time you even think about bumping into that frozen furrow, your wooden plow is going to get smashed into splinters.
I have seen steel plows get bent to hell and back when trying to plow deep snow.
The only way your plow will work is if its used in powdery snow at slow speeds, and you only use it 1 time. Even if the edge is 8 inches off the ground, if you dont have supports from the bottom edge back to the frame, that plow is going to fold like a piece of paper when you try and push snow.
Sorry for all of the negative thoughts, but i have been plowing snow for atleast 35 years now, and have tried all sorts of designs such as what you have done, none of them work as well as a power angle plow.
OK Finaly got 8" of snow to test the home brew ATV plow. Worked great. Even pushed out the bank at the end of the drive without ripping off the jeep. Just need to be careful with it and know what you are working with. Beats the hell out of shoveling.... Total build cost with HF 2000#winch and Craigs list 60" cycle country plow and mount $220.00I mounted a 60" atv plow on my 95' this summer for the same purpose of moving light snow at my cabin. I haven't tested it yet but lets just say I have no plans for bucking my way through the bank at the end of the drive with it. I'm sure the push and mass of the jeep will fold up push tubes made for a 600# atv with ease if you aren't really careful about what you are doing.
That being said, fabricating a mount u bolted to the front springs just in front of the axel was extremely easy and the winch to lift it up and down is already there. Total build cost including the craigs list plow and push tubes was $150.
As soon as we get snow I'll let you know how it worked or if I'm in the market for a new oil pan after running over my formerly attached plow.....
