I recently bought a 48 inch "deluxe" Polaris brand plow. It was purchased slightly used off of hsolist with the manual lift and all manuals. It seems to take forever to install and sits so low to the ground. It has been used once this year and I'm planning to sell it next fall. I guess compared to the 8.5ft. pro plow there's no comparison.
I bought the receiver hitch for the machine and now I've got to take it off every time the plow goes on. At least the plow was under half the price of a new one.

dougger222, that plow is a pain. but they redesigned them now. Whole new system. The glacier plow goes on the machine in just a few seconds. Only down side is you need a winch.

jasonp99,

I would recomend getting just a straight blade. The v-plow is to much of a pain. We had one on our demo unit and would up welding extra steel to the rods that hold the blade halves in place. plus it really only works well if you doing a lot of narrow sidewalks. but a 48 to 50 inch blade does the same job.

ride safe, wear a helmut, stupid hurts

If you get'em serviced, wash'em first.

I have a 60" Glacier plow set up and I can't believe mounting could be any easier. Drive right on to the system and hook up. Under a minute just like to brochure claims. With the 60" straight blade, you can have it angled all the way and still be wider than your wheels. I do not believe a whinch is madatory, but sure makes it easy. Just my $.02.

My uncle just picked up a Sportsman 400 with the plow and winch from the dealership. He said the plow attaches on the front of the unit and is a breeze to put on and take off.
I may keep the plow for the four wheeler for when I need to bank around the fish house before I can take the plow truck out.
Other than that it's a waste of time.

I bought a 60 in warn plow and a warn 3000 lb winch from onlyatv.com and the total with shipping included was $750. They were great people to deal with (negotiable) and a very reasonable price. The plow mount was simple to install (about 5 minutes on 450 foreman ES) hooks up in about 2 minutes. Also has five plow angles as opposed to the three angles most plows have.

I have a 60 inch cycle country plow with manual raise lower. Overall, I am very happy, it seems to work really well. Angles left or right with just a quick spring loaded release, and works great for plowing my driveway and the private road that I live on. Goes on/off very easily with 2 quick release pins, and one clevis. Personally, I replaced the pins that it came with for something easier to take on/off, as I like to take the plow off when I am hauling it around.

Sledhead -
I think that I remember from a previous post that you work in an ATV dealership. I would appreciate your opinion of the standard 60 inch Glacier Plow blade vs the 60 inch commercial grade blade. The price difference is about $60 but the commercial blade comes with the rubber snow deflector on the top of the blade, which is a $30 item. Polaris advertizes the comercial blade as being .25" thick and thus has to be stronger and weigh more than the standard blade. If I went with the standard 60" blade and added the snow deflector for $30, wouldn't another $30 spent on the commercial blade be well spent? Some people talk about adding weight to the standard blade to help scraping in hard snow conditions. This wouldn't be necessary with the heavier blade and the commercial blade would be harder to bend if you hit something. I guess I am thinking that the commercial blade might be the best way to go - - - - are there any reasons why I wouldn't like the heavier blade?
Thanks!

    • If you fish the river it could. Ive done it and seen it done multple times. Hit a log that is.
    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!
