Any reason for a V plow instead of a straight blade? I believe that there is another member here that has one but I am not sure.

I have been plowing with a straight blade now for close to 20 years and the only problem that I have had with any of it is the wear on the wear blade when I place the plow on a angle to push the snow off of the driveway or sidewalk.

Any v plow available would be really heavy I believe but not sure. Boss might make one but not sure. I think plowing trails might be a tall order regardless of what you use on an atv.

A tow behind blade might work.

Just Google “atv v snow plow” you will get a lot of choices popping up to look at.
I plow the trails around my property all winter with straight tapered blade with ease. The tapered blade throws the snow farther off to the side.

Update:
I looked into Eagle Plow System for V plow. The other companies Boss and Moose have switched to making them for UTV from what I understand

This is the info I found on Eagle Plow, is manufacturer : American MFG, I looking at website northstaratv.com
parts#:
#1- 2610 Mid Mount
#2- 2906 System push tube
#3- 2919 is the V-blade

I looked up the front mount, what are guys thoughts? if use a front mount I would need a counter weight from what I understand

3920 is Gen II front plow mount
3906 Gen II push tube go with the mount I think

I thought about a V plow, but decided against it for driveway purposes.
It sounds like a good idea though for trails as long as there are no small sapling stumps in the paths like we have out here.

Being from the Same area as the OP I also use a straight blade, I plow woods paths driveways and in front of my house. I am about 1.5 north ish, and it hasn't stopped snowing and I wouldn't go V based no weight alone. My straight Kolpin plow with my Shocks Set at 5 Still pulls the front down a bit and that has not been with a wet snow that we are prone to getting. I had to switch to a plow strap due to killing winch cables constantly. Just my 2 cents.

A straight blade allows you to widen the plowed trail by almost the width of the blade each pass. A V plow will only widen the initial pass by less than half the overall width of the plow. As well you cannot push up any ridges that are left.
