The quick answer is , no.
I do not know of anyone with one at the moment.
I have seen a few over the years though.
I knew a guy in the seventies that had a plow on the front, and a winch on the back of one.
He also used to mow about 3 acres of lawn with a set of old gang mowers from a golf course.
I have seen a couple in duck swamps too. The suckers will go right along in the water and then just ease up to a bunch of cattails and keep on going right up and over. Impressive.
They will easily pull one of the small logging arches that are designed for an 'ATV'.
The best bet to see one is contact the company through the 800 number and find the closest dealer. I am about 10 miles south of Burlington, but the closest dealer used to be in St. Albans.
Where are you? How much land do you have?
How are you planning on running a 'brush-hog' with an ATV? Are there small models with their own motor? Do ATV's have PTO's?
I have been following your questions here with interest, and it almost sounds like you are getting to the point where you should be looking at a tractor instead of an ATV. For the same price that you are thinking of paying for an ATV, you could have one heck of a used tractor in the 25-40 HP range with a few toys, er...I mean, Implements with it. There are somewhere near 400 tow-behind and 3-point implements out there for tractors. You would be hard pressed to find near that amount designed for use with an ATV.
I plow my drive, snake logs and pull a 5 foot brush-hog with my 1948 Ford 8N. Some days I wish I had a few more 'modern' features and a tad more power, but so far I have not failed to get a job done due to these constraints. Just takes a bit longer and a little more thought.
