4 wheeler snow plow

14 posts in this topic

I am thinking of getting a plow for my 4 wheeler. Looking for any advise as far as costs, brands, do's and don'ts. I believe I had heard there is 3 different components needed including the plow. I live in Duluth so any stores would help.Thanks.

What kind of wheeler you got? Moose makes a great plow.American Eagle makes a good plow.Polaris has a Glacier plow system that is really slick, and Moose is making the same system available for all makes of wheelers. Rocky Mountain aTV's HSOforum carry's Tusk plows which are actually American Eagle.Good price at Rocky Mountain also.

The Polaris system is about as good as they get. Hooks up in seconds.

Buy a least a 60" plow or when you angle it it won't cover the width of the wheeler.

Anywhere from $400-$1000+

The Glacier II Polaris plow is the one I would buy. If money was no object it would be a blackline.

I have the American Eagle now and it works fine. I just always like to upgrade.....

Polaris has the Boss plow for the sidebysides. Those look real nice also.

Also would recommend a 60" plow unless you are doing sidewalks that are narrow. Get a good winch too with a rope, not a wire cable. You could also use a rope or strap in the winch you already may have.

My wheeler is a Honda. Are the Polaris plows only designed for Polaris wheelers?

If you're riding a Honda, I would recommend a county plow in any of the brands listed above.

The Polaris system is only for Polaris. Plows may be interchangeable, it's the attachment that's different.

Call or do a search for Cycle Country. They were the first to make them, and in my opinion are still the best in quality and customer service. You need the plow and the pushtubes. Depending on the exact model blade, the system runs about $500 and hooks up in moments (2 pins). They won't sell directly to you, but you can find a dealer from their HSOforum..

I was very happy with my American Eagle plow on my old machine. I have the Polaris Glacier II plow on my current machine. I bought it from a place in Buffalo, MN

Go to L&M in Cloquet. Last year I bought a Kimpex "Click & Go" 60" plow from them. They had all the brackets for different ATV models to go with it.

It is really simple to put on and off, you don't have to crawl underneath and put pins in.

It was about $225 or so out the door.

I am very happy with it.

Do a search on the web for Kimpex plows.

have experience with most brands of plows. the moose is the best imo, built to last. i can smooth gravel driveway and not worry about bending parts. parts unlimited make a new quick release for all brands, including can-ams. i mounted it and it looks sweet.e-mail me for more info, pictures and prices pj_4@hotmail.com they make a straight blade for short pushes and the county plow for longer pushes (one end higher like co trucks)angle the blade, pick up your speed,10-15mph,and watch the snow fly off the side.

Any body have any issues with wrecking your wheeler with a plow. I just got a 2006 Can-Am 2-up and am thinking about adding a plow.

have setup and used several types of plows. as long as the dump springs are adjusted right, you should not have any problems with frame fatigue. remember to adjust the shoes down to lift the plow till the ground is frozen. sucks to rake rocks and sod the next spring from your yard. moose makes two types of hookups. 1, drive in. 2, push tubes with pins under chassy. both work very well. question? pj_4@hotmail.com

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
