In addition to the traction problem identified by several reviewers of your design, I would think you need a solid link instead of the chain as your "third link" because as you get a large accumulation of snow/ice/slush in front of the plow, the force will cause the top link to go into compressive stress and chains don't do any better than rope in that mode.

Are you serious? or being sarcastic?

Think of how a plow works on a truck or ATV. The plow sits on the ground and is pushed. IF you hit something, the top of the plow moves forward and the springs bring it back to normal.

I agree if the object hit is low (on the blade edge), but if the object is high on the plow (such as a large chuck of material) the plow may lift....I would make an upper link to prevent possible rotation of the plow if it were mine.
