Good front blade for a Can-Am Outlander Max

What is a good front blade for a 2005 Can-Am Outlander Max 400? Price, availability and how do they stand up? I know lots of members on this forum use front blades. I never had a blade for either quad that I owned.

I'm currently using a 72" Moose straight plow on my 05 King Quad 700 and it does a great job...

however

that said it's a bit too wide and over powers the steering in heavy snow ( I use chains on all four corners).

I used a 60" Moose County plow (the tapered one) previously and it was perfect!

The xtra 6" a side on the wider plow make it a bee-atch to steer in heavy snow since the plow turns the quad if the plow can't move the snow aside.....its fine for light to moderate snow conditions.

I used the 60" on my Vinsons (500cc) and they handled it no sweat as well so I think 60 Moose is the answer :)

As an aside.......I'm looking to swap the 72" for a 60' at this point.... .. the 60" Moose lasted 8 years and wore out 3 wear bars before it was retired (I need to re-weld some spots).

I plow hundreds of kms (really) of gravel roads in the Kenora area during a winter...my place...the neighbors place, the next neighbors place the road and so on... the only thing that has slowed me down on quad plowing is the addition of a real plow truck with an 84" blade so I can plow in the heated cab.

So my vote is Moose!

Went with the 72 " can am blade have had it on a 800 and now on a 850 have used for about 8 years now they are a bit more $$$ but I have the got to get er done additude and have been quite rough with it over the years and it has taken the abuse quite well still straight as an arrow only issues with it was had to replace a couple of missing carriage bolts on cutting edge and paint is chipping in places I think can am has a narrower plow available also probable better suited for a smaller quad

I would recommend getting a mid mount instead of a front mount

. No unfortunately it's not mine, my Nephew bought a used Can-Am Outlander Max 400 and he is new to Can-Am so I am giving him a hand with a few things. My health is no where near good enough to ride or buy a quad, maybe one day it will be! I sure miss our 2007 Can-Am Outlander Max 500!

Unfortantally I have not found the "fountain of youth" LOL!
Maybe one day I will be able to ride again but I have a long way to go before that would happen!
Thanks for your comment!

I hope you get better as well!!!

Please see my post about changing over the winch cable to tow strap.

I'm not familiar what is available for the Can-am as far as widths, but I personally wouldn't go over 54" on a front mount. Mid mount 60". Wear and tear and snow conditions, what's one or two extra passes especially if the machine is struggling with 72" to the point chains are required.

I use a mid mount 60" from CT on my 07 400 Max. Also put on the power blade angler from CT. After 5 years of use it is still performing very well.

I use a 50" Quadivator blade on my 07 outlander 400. Very happy with it. Purchased from Adventure Power Products for around $400 about 3-4 years ago. Im not sure if they carry them anymore but its great. Takes about 15-20 min to put on and take off every season. Easy to use, easy to store.

I have a quadivater also from Adventure. 70in on my Rzr. I’m thinking more like 5 minutes to r and r and no brackets hanging on the machine. Easy to angle without getting off

5 mins tops, one bolt and 2 straps. Drawback is it's a little lighter duty, but when your mounting on an atv what would you rather bend, the blade or the atv frame ?
