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 .

    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
