I have a Glacier plow one my Sportsman 700. It is a winch plow with a quick mount system. I have seen the moose county plow in action and it works great. I'm a little late on this post but what the heck.

I bought a garden tractor blade and made a mounting kit to mount it on my Ozark.I also use a Warn winch on a Home made winch mount.

You made the mounting kit yourself? Nice! That ozark is 2 wheel drive right? How do you like it? Is it a 250?

Yes it is 2 wheel drive 250. I love it for plowing snow! I also put a 60 pound weight on the trailer hitch. I made the mounting kit at work. I,m a steel worker. The place I work for is Nucor Building systems. We produce metal buildings.

Nice...I remember I was looking for bumbers for my 05 king quad when I got it because there were none available yet. I was thinking of having something fabricated at the time. Now they're all available.

Back to the plows, have you seen this by warn?

      I'm looking for help w/identifying a plow mounting bracket for my 1988 Big Bear 350. Can't seem to find one that's available/in-stock for these older models. Anyone know if there's much difference between an 88 and say a 1994? Seems like brackets for the 90's and newer models are easier to find.

      Does anybody know where I can buy a plow mount for my 91 big bear 350? I tried motosport, and motorcyclesuperstore they both have one but it's unavailable, all the other sites I tried including ebay don't have one for that year.

      Just checking up, now that im getting to giving the new "to me" 93 moto4 350 2wd a tune up. Are there any weak points to really keep an eye on for failure? Never had a shaft driven quad before. On a side note, my yamaha came with a plow which i fully plan to use this winter, are there any dos and donts for plows with this quad? gears to avoid? etc? obviously letting your bike warm up etc.

      I grew up riding motorcycles and three-wheelers. After 20 years away, I have now moved to the Rocky Mountains and have some amazing country to explore in my backyard. Add a snowplow onto a utility four wheeler (do they call them that?) and I have a great opportunity and excuse to buy a toy that I have wanted for years.
      Not to mention that my 5 year-old would lose his mind if Dad bought one of these and we started exploring the backroads/4wd roads that are all over my area.
      That said, I do not want to spend more than $5000+ for this and, so long as it can do some basic snow removal and run reliably, dont mind getting an older model.
      I have four questions:
      1) I feel comfortable maintaining this, but would like an expert to look it over to find any big issues before I buy it. Should I take it to a dealer to have it checked out? This is complicated by my next question . . .
      2) Any recommendations on how to bring it home? I do not yet have a truck, trailer or anything to get whatever I buy home. I expect that I will have to borrow/rent a truck, but once it is at my house I can just ride from my house to all of the places I want to go.
      3) After pulling out what is available on Craigslist, I think I may want to limit who I talk to to just those that already have a snowplow. This is a must have, so is there anything I should look for?
      4) Made it this far? If so, is there anything in the below list that I should definitely check out? I pulled this list from just the past two days of posts on Craigslist and am getting a bit overwhelmed as I have not shopped for one of these, well, ever.

      Hello all, I am new here and this is my 1st post so please bear with me. I have a 400 kodiak 1996 model. I have a john deere snow plow for my mower a(4 ft. wide). I had someone tell me that it can be put on my atv but I am not sure how the heck you make it mount up under the frame. They told me they used there same mounting brackets that cam with the plow and went to (farm and home store in our area) and bought the brackets to mount underneath. I do not find these brackets. Anyone out there have any advice on how I can do this or where I can go to get some ideas with out spending an arm and a leg? thx for any and all help!!!
