Glacier Plow System Frame for Polaris ATV

Recommended Posts

Hey just wondering if anyone has this new plowing system from Polaris? I'm thinking of purchasing it for this next winter to plow my Driveway and side walks. I have a Polaris Sportsman 500. Anyone have experience with this Glacer system? Good or Bad comments. Thanks Guys!

I have this on my '03 Sportsman 600. I love it. This is the only one that I have ever used, so I can't give you any comparison's, but it only take 30 seconds to hook it up and take it off. The plate underneath stays there for good, except when you want to drop the front differential oil. Then the plate must be taken off to get to the drain plug, that is the only draw back.

I have it on a 04 400 sportsman, and love it. It is simple and fast to hook up. You can get about 13 inches of clearance from the ground to the bottom of the blade without putting rubber blocks in the springs. You won't be sorry buying one of these.

Its a really good system, I've installed several of them and can say first hand thats it's the best design I've seen yet. On a side note... You do need to have a winch though to use the Glacier plow.

ride safe, wear a helmut, stupid hurts

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

I have one on my 500HO. I love it. I can't believe how much snow these machines can move. Be careful that the winch pulls straight up and down. There are 3 holes in the plow to hook to. I used the middle hole for most of the season and my winch cable broke. I now use the far left hole and it works fine.

Wall-Eye, do you have a warn wench or did you purchase the wench that mounts to the Glacier frame? I think they call it the Glacier™ Plow System Electronic Lift Kit. I was thinking about purchasing the Glacier Plow System Electronic Lift Kit but wanted to hear some oppinions on it. Thanks!

My opinion would be, if you don't have a winch, think about spending the money you'd spend on the electric plow lift and put it towards a winch to raise and lower your plow. A winch would serve two purposes rather than the electric plow lift serving just one, and you having the need of a winch while out riding.

TND,
I have one on a plow system but not the Glacier plow system. I like it. Faster than a winch, quiet and the switch is right on the handlebar next to the left grip. It's a Cycle Country electric plow lift system. I would guess the Glacier system is similar.

I got one on my 04 600 and it is fantastic. Much easier than the earlier Polaris plow mounts and lots fater to kookuo and take off. Plowed snow all winter with no problems. I would recommend it for anyone that is looking for a plow system and doesn't want to spend a lot of time putting a plow on and taking it off when you want to go do other things. Takes less than 1 minute to hook up and take off when you want to go fishing or playing.

    • 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!    
    • Can't stand the guy and don't watch his craap!  I was watching videos on the Sherp vehicle which is pretty cool and these two popped up.  When I saw them mowing over Wild rice beds it [PoorWordUsage]ed me off and got me to send it in to the DNR.  
    • ahh good old whistlindiesel, your just part of the click bait generating even more revenue for him now   love him or hate him he sure knows how to generate some buzz   Also he was already on the Mn DNR $hitlist for this and ticketed see below:
