Plow help

Looking a getting a plow for the 550XP. Dont know much about them, and I have been looking at the Polaris Glacier 3, and the Warn ProVantage. Both have the front mounts, but can someone clue me in on some of the glitches with both. Dont need anything to heavy duty, mostly for playing, still keeping the snow blower, but I see how much fun the neighbours are having screwing around outside !
Any comments would be helpful.


Thx

get something with a thick plate and that is reinforced like crazy. plows take a shit kicking especially when you hit edges and curbs. buddy used a quadivator blade for a few days and destroyed it.didn't hold up to the abuse of plowing. like house hunter said moose plows are awesome, most people like them very much

Hey Chaz I have the Moose Plow on the Outlander and I'm sure you have seen me plowing with it. The most solid one I seen out there when I was buying and a reasonable price. Your more than welcome to come and take a look at it anytime. Jim

I have the glacier 2 system on my 850 and i love it. 3 seconds to hook up and the mounting plate is super tight to the frame and heavy duty. actually works like a front gaurd and gives a nice tie down point on the front. I would highly recommend the polaris glacier system

I second the Glacier Plow System, its amazing how rough you could be with it, it does a great job on all surfaces. Attaching it and taking it off is so simple. the bad thing is after a snow storm i have to race home to start plowing before the wife gets home, she loves its. i paid 600 bucks at polaris in selkirk. definately 2 thumbs up

I hear from some people that you want to go with the 60" blade rather the then smaller one. Not sure what width your blade package comes with but I have heard from some people they prefer the wider blade.
Anyone who has info or first hand on this could tell you better I'm just offering my 2 cents.

Go with the 60 inch for sure, when the blade is angled you are still plowing the total width of your quad. Shorter ones might not.

I have only used the Kimpex click and go Blades. I'm good at braking everything I get my hands on! lol But I have Used It for 2 years and nothing has gone wrong with it. I have a 2007 Grizz 700 and I use the 60x17 blade but I think you should go with a bit smaller size 54x17. I have sold over 40 of them this year and had not problems with them what so ever. If you would like to see it, I do have stock of the blade and push frame. I would need to get the mount in for you.If you would like me to price it out for you let me know !

I've been using a polaris blade for about 4 years now. Never had a problem with it. It's a glacier 1. Very easy on and off. I have a 60" blade the one shaped like a bow tie on the top. Never had any other set up to compare it to.

definately get a 60" plow i have a 48" and when i angle it my front tires show. I have a powerblade from canadian tire and have no problems with it. Also think about changing your winch cable to a short cable for the plowing season nothing beats up a winch cable more than plowing.

Id get a synthetic rope to replace the cable. i'm changing mine. i hate the cable you needs gloves or your hands get cut up and bleed like crazy ha, and they kink super easy and they just plain old suck. rope should last you forever, especially using a plow constantly

Well you are right about the rope. Cable sucks !!!! it's also stronger. Amazing but true.

I've got a 54' warn one on my 800x2 and haven't had any problems yet, a bit wider blade would be nice but it would make maneuvering a bit more of a challenge in the driveway. It's a tough blade with a replaceable blade guard on the bottom. Assembly wasn't quick though and required a few hours and some drilling into the mounting plate.

A good thing about getting a Polaris Glacier 3. NO DRILLING. It fits on your Atv,that's what it's made for. Took me about an hour to install & I use all left handed tools.
