First the battery on a quad is design for start and run the quad.
Plowing demand several time a big drain of power from the battery, each time you up the plow.
When you run 5 min to get it back, that indicate yout quad charging system is ok
But your battery as now 4 years old and is powerless than a new one.
But that issue also with a new battery because the big power drain of plowing.
To resolve that issue here in quebec north we add a second battery, like automotive or best, deep cycle battery. This solution need that you put a charger on batterys after you finish your plow job, the bike charging system is not design to charge a big battery to full.
Hoping that help,
