There are three main types of lift systems that are available for ATV or UTV plows. The lift system types include the following: manual, winch, or direct lift. A manual or winch lift system will require you to manually angle the plow left, right, or straight, and with the manual lift system, as its name suggests, you will have to raise and lower the blade by hand. If you plan on plowing a lot of roads, you will want to consider a direct lift hydraulic plow. Having the hydraulic system eliminates the need to get off of the machine to angle or lift the blade.
