Plows?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering who has a plow on their wheeler, and if they like it. I'm thinking of putting a Glacier system on my '07.

I have an american eagle 60" on my wheeler. works great out here in the country. if I lived in town however, I'd go back to a snowblower hands down, but for moving a good amount of snow, it's amazing how much snow they'll push!!

I have a 60" at the inlaws on the bomb. and that goes great, I have a 48 on my suzuki in town and plow about 6 driveway and the sidewalks, I angle the blade and run street to street on the sidewalks, it goes really well. The bomb is 500 traxter and that can really move the snow just keep giving it gas and it will keep on a moving.

I have a 48" Cycle Country plow on my Kodiak 450. Love it. Plowed a trail through my woods in two foot of snow the other day. Amazing how much you can plow. I would, however, agree that if I lived in town I would have a snowblower - you have to have a lot of room to turn around with a plow.

I have a 700 Sportsman equipped with a Polaris V-plow. Most impressive, I live in a rural setting, my driveway is 1/4 mile long and this system demolishes it in no time!!! cool.gif It's currently at the dealers having tracks installed, this should increase the capacity and versatility for moving snow.

I live in town and I got rid of my snowblower for a 60" on my 425 Magnum. IMHO a snowblower is too much like work, the wheeler and plow is way more fun. I do not turn around though, I lift the blade, back up and make another pass. Just be careful of the grass edge or you will be doning a lot of repair work come spring!

The cure for easy turn arounds is to put it in 2WD,crank the wheels, and give it some gas! The wheeler will turn on a dime by doing this! wink.gif

I don't have the system, but the Glacier plow appears to be the best. I would suggest the 60" for angle plowing it covers your tracks. That way you are plowing a path wide enough for your machine.

I have the Eagle plow 60" and am satisfied with it.

The V-plow I installed is 56 inch's, that's plenty wide enough to clear a path for my 700.

Once I have completed installing the track system on my machine, I am comtemplating installing an auger rack on V-plow. I have already tested the ATV with the plow attached while on the ice and it functions well. When the plow is raised in the up position it offers an incredible amount of ground clearence. Once the tracks have been installed the clearence will be that much greater ever increasing the plow's clearence. Mounting an auger rack to the plow should be practical and if implemented properly will not effect the plow's effeciency.

I have the glacier plow on my 500 magnum and I love it. I like the quick hook up and un hook. It does cost a little more but to me it was way worth it.

I will be putting one on my Suzuki KQ or Yamaha 700fi Which is the best plow available for these? Glacier? I was thinking about a 54" or 48"

I do not know how the Glacier plow systems are? I own a 60" Eagle plow, the county plow (tapered blade) and have 0 complaints. I would suggest getting as big (60") of a plow as possible, because the wheeler will handle it easily, and when you angle the plow it will push the snow wider than your atv's tires.It is also helpful if you need to plow out large areas.Rocky mountain ATV sells great plows for $350 w/free shipping. On another note I was reading that some of the new Grizz 700's were having cold start issues. Just something I thought I'd share,being I know that is a wheeler you are considering.

Thanks for mentioning the problems with the Grizzly wonder why that FI isn't starting well in the cold. I really the the KQ I have rode it and it is sweet. I was thinking the Yamaha though cause of the power sterring. However I really do like the KQ. I was thinking smaller than the 60" blade cause of getting it on a trailer and pushing dirt I thought one would be better off with a smaller blade but then I guess you could get an area flatter with the longer blade surface. Thanks for any input on this issue as well as choice of wheeler to get. I appreciate it.

I've been reading about the Grizz 700's cold start issues on another internet site in the Yamaha forums.I do not know anyone that owns one so I cannot say much from first hand expierience.

I also have the 60" glacier plow on a 700 Sportsman. I don't think I would want something too much more narrow than that. Works great, hooking up to the plow and disconnecting is very easy and fast. I wish they made an attachment that allowed you to turn the angle of the plow without having to get off the wheeler!

They actually do make an attachment that turns the plow angle for you without getting off of the wheeler. If I remember right they are on the spendy side though. I think the company is American Eagle, but I'm not positive?

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
