  4. Hey guys , i think i made mistake when purchased my machine when i thought id be fine with a manual lift moose plow set up . plow is great , takes a beating , very satisfied however the manual lift for it just kicks my ass after 4 hours or so. Lol so im looking at changing over to a winch , no biggie im definitely going to do it , where my question is , when looking at winches i came to the divide in the trail ...nylon rope ,or old style cable ? I will be,only using this for plowing that is all , i use choke cables and tug straps for other work ...... somwhat do you think guys , its not a price issue , im looking for longterm dependability.... i questioned the rope getting wet while plowing , maybe no biggie not sure. .. thanks guys. Airborne

  12. I know this is an older post but felt like contributing, yesterday my son and i were on our property hauling out down trees , figured taking advantage of frozen ground would make the dragging easier, we ended up putting 9 hours in just hooking choke chains to logs and pulling out , it was fun did some great work , exercise, played with the quads a bit and had fun.
  13. Sounds great..... round up everyone and have a great day
  14. That sounds like fun. A day of riding together , and get to know everyone
  15. Took the quads out today, decided wife ,son and i needed a break between house guests, lol party yesterday, and the next two days as well so we went out ridding a bit today , it was brisk but refreshing , came home had a few drinks by the fireplace , nice day , suppose to get some snow tomorrow? I dont think it will be much though .. Airborne
