ATV plows

8 posts in this topic

I need a plow for a Grizzly 450.

Several options out there.

I know I want a 60 inch.

But what brand? Any set ups better than others for easy connect?

I dont need a state plow. Just want a standard 60 inch.

I did some googles but didnt seem to narrow my search much.

And how much for a complete set up.

PS - using the winch, so no hand lever needed.

having a winch already will save you some coin. I'm guessing that purchasing the mount and a 60" plow will run you between $500-750, depending on brand. Cycle Country and the Moose brands are 2 of the most common.

Go visit that accessory place in Big Lake on the east end of town. They have what you need. I think they carry Cycle Country and all the mounts. My kid got one there for his Kodiak. Works good.

R-cky Mo-nt-in atv online has a great price on Tusk plows (same as American Eagle). I had one of these and broke it several times, I now have a Moose and have broke that one also.Both are made in MN (Isanti and Cambridge) Both are good plows. I had problems with poor welds, and I plow ALOT. The Yamaha,Honda, Suzuki dealer in Cambridge can get you either of these plows. Den-is k-rk is another one, they are in Rush City.

You'll get what you pay for with a plow. If you buy a cheaper one, you'll probably regret it when they break. Spend the bucks and get a Cycle Country, you'll never have to worry about it and it won't break. I've used mine for 4 years (plow a bunch) and haven't had to do anything to it. All you'll need is the pushtubes and the plow itself. Pushtubes attach to the wheeler with 2 pins, just takes a few seconds to attach.

I went with a cylcle country, just had it installed this winter, very pleased with it. I went with a 56'' hand lift, ended up droppin 750 bucks but well worth it my opinion, have been using it a lot this winter! Easy attach and detaching, i reccommend cycle country.

I bought a 60 inch Country Plow by American Eagle in Isanti and love the thing. I had a smaller Polaris one on my first 4 wheeler which was OK but this thing moves the snow. I had a winch already so the whole set up cost me $500

I have a Warn on mine as it was ordered in the package deal for our big bear . It's in it's second season of plowing and did grader duty last summer and so far I have no issue with it . I think it's a 54 inch . To tell you the truth though I haven't looked at any other brand but will in the future just to see if their are differences .

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
