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.

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.

Have you fabricated anything else? Bumbers, skid plates, etc?

Just a yard wagon. I waiting for a friend to recover from an operation. So we can build some bumpers.

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 plow with a 54" Cycle Country on the King. This year I bought the down pressure kit from Cycle Country. Works great! Now I can even back plow without an issue.:yes:

Her is the link for it. It keeps the plow from riding up on the snow. In my opinion it works great, well worth the money!

    • Bike/brand of choice?

      So one thing I enjoy about Quadcrazy is the amount of diversity when it comes to the bike/brand of choice.   We all hear about so many different brands/types that we need help or helping out with!  Myself ive had just about every brand bike except for a Suzuki which I’m currently seeking as my next project😜. I currently have 5 quads and they are all different in brand except for two Honda’s one of which is a newer bike fuel injected. I have to say so far through all the bikes I’ve worked on my brand of choice would be Honda! I think they make a great product!  I love the older carburetor bikes!  Now I’m sure some of the other members feel differently and I would like to hear your bike of choice and why?  Wether it be the repairs, handling, look, safety, simplicity, electronics etc!!!!!!! One of the reasons I bring this up is I have friend that recently purchased a can am new!  I asked him why a can am after all the years of Polaris?  He said it’s a nice looking bike and wanted to try something new. He has rode the bike three or four times and hated it!  So a trip back to the dealer he traded it in for a Polaris and he’s very happy now.  A costly mistake since he lost money on the can am but back to his Polaris that he said he will never stray again.  Let’s hear it !

      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.
    • By JAK1985
      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.
    • By rocketmoon2
      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.
      2003 Yamaha Grizzly 660 4x4 w/ Warn Winch & New Tires
      2002 Honda TRX 350 LOW HOURS
      2008 Polaris 500 Deluxe EFI ATV
      ******2003 Kawaski Prairie 650 V TWIN*****
      1998 honda atv 300 fourtrax
      (has snowplow!)
      2006 Yamaha Kodiak 450 ATV

      2003 Kawasaki Prairie 650 4X4 Utility ATV with Cargo Racks, 1075 miles
      And that is just for the past two days . . . so many to choose from, so Im a bit overwhelmed!!!
    • By corkey
      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!!!
