Yessiree....Its plow season again ladies & Gents. Ive got mine ready to go, how about you? I made a few changes for this year. I re-wired my caution lights directly so they work with the engine off. ( Led Strobes, so the amp draw is minimal.) I put a bronze bushing on the pivot of the plow to frame to prevent further wear on the joint. Repainted some spots on the plow from normal use. I re-mounted my winch switch so its closer to the handgrip making it easier to raise & lower the plow on the move.

What set-up do you have? Changes or mods that made the "job" easier? Post up your plowing pics, vids, or tips. :yes:

My current setup:

2002 Suzuki Quadrunner LTF-500-F 4X4

Moose 60" plow.

Warn RT-15 winch.

ITP Mudlite XTR Tires.

Custom wired TypeR LED strobes. ( 8 amber Heads, 2 on each corner. )

      Does a US made grease gun fit Metric zerk fittings, or do I need a conversion to fit them?  Thanks in advance.

      Problem: The ATV starts and runs at idle perfectly. But as soon as I open the throttle, the engine starts to slow down until it stops. On the attached video you can hear the sound of how it works: see video below
      Prehistory: there is a Polaris Sportsman 500 1998, which for about 1.5 years stood in repair, including also replacing CDI with one taken from the same ATV. Finally, the vehicles were on wheels, traveled several kilometers and overheated - forgot to fill the antifreeze Came back home in small moves. The next trip started well, but after 10 km there was a feeling of a small drop in power (even as the vehicle got warm completely) but still drives. Next trip - the situation is repeated. The next test of ATV through time and a huge loss of power from the very beginning. The engine sneezes, does not want to go more than 5 mph.

      What has been done: the carburetor has been replaced with a new one (inexpensive, $ 40), a new spark plug, a new ignition coil, the engine head has been removed, the piston is in good condition, valves were corrected - but the problem was definitely not in them.

      Ignition control unit is suspected. Who faced similar? Please help in solving the problem.
      Thanks in advance.

      (I don't have manual and there isn't one on the internet)
      It's a 150cc ATV, automatic transmission, automatic starter, with zero electric devices.
      I have to mount at least some front/rear lights. But for how many watts should I aim in total on entire ATV? You know, for example there are 10/50/200 Watt lights. But it's impossible to order some, when I don't know if I should keep entire ATV under 100 Watts? Under 500 Watts? Under 1000 Watts?

      We bought an old atv from friends to bum around on the farm with. VIN number is rusted off. Is there a way to determine the year model from the engine number? We only need the info to buy parts. Please help

      So we are almost a month into winter and I've been so busy working on my house that up until today, I didn't realize that we just haven;t gotten any real snow yet to warrant putting the plow on my grizzly. So that got me thinking, what are the latest plows out there and what ATV plows are the best? I've got 2 snow plows for my grizzly, a quadboss pile driver atv plow set up and a snowsport ATV plow. They are both a bit dated now and I tend to stick with the snowsport due to ease of use and I just like it so much. So if you have a plow on your ATV, please let us know what it is and post a picture with your atv/plow would be awesome. Would also like to know what you like and dislike about it.
      This is back a while when I did a write up on these 2 plows.... in 2009 I got the snowsport and in 2012 I got the quadboss.

      We got about a foot of snow on Feb 9, 2017. Took the grizzly out yesterday and plowed for about 2 hours.

      The folks over at Agricover were nice enough to supply us with a SnowSport® All Terrain Plow for review. Before we even got our hands on this plow, looking it over on their website impressed us. The first thing we noticed with this plow was the fact that, there is no need for a winch or lift lever. This was very intriguing, as most plow setups will require a winch or a lever to operate.  
      We received the plow and mount for our 2006 Yamaha Grizzly in 2 separate boxes, both easy enough to carry. The aluminum 60” plow is not that heavy at all and came with a hard rubber 6-7” strip, which is actually the lower 3rd of the plow, and surface contact. The plow required a few holes, that we drilled with a standard drill bit, 6 to be exact. Drilling through the aluminum was pretty easy. We also needed to mount up the plow, so the best idea would be to install the ATV mount first, which we didn’t.  
      So we opened the other box with the mount for our Grizzly, and looked it all over with the supplied instructions. This quad already has a winch mounted, so we were concerned about the two brackets working together, due to the fact that they use the same frame holes. There was no need to worry; the Plow mount bracket went right behind the winch bracket. There was an extra step in removing the winch bracket, to get the plow bracket in. This plow mount is pretty simple, it uses a hardened steel frame and secures to the ATV frame in the front and over the frame in the rear. It was one bracket with 2 bolts, and the rest was a slide in assembly, secured by lock pins. Very nice and very easy.  
      Now that we had our mount installed on our Grizzly, we brought over our assembled plow. The blow bracket slides right into the plow mount and is also held with a lock pin. The bracket has a pivot pin, which allows us to pivot the plow to the left or right. We chose to keep it in the center position for now. Once we had the bracket installed on the mount, it was as easy as lifting the plow and sliding it onto the bracket. That is it. There is a position you can leave the plow raised for riding without contact, or leave it completely down to the ground, for when plowing is done.  
      The directions were simple enough to follow and installation took about 1 hour. I like the fact that the plow easily comes off for when you want to hit the trails, and mounts up for when snow cleaning is needed. It’s light weight as opposed to other plows on the market.  
      We got hit with an early December snowfall, just in time to run a preliminary test with our Grizzly. We plowed a stretch of 150 feet on a right pivot with 4” on the ground. No problem at all. In reverse, the plow basically disengages and gets pulled with you across the plowed surface. Engaging a forward gear, straightens the plow for pushing. It’s just that simple, no winch or lever needed. We ran our quad up a 30 degree hill with the plow engaged through the 4” of snow and over a grassy surface. The grass and dirt where untouched, as it glided without issue, pushing the snow out of our way. Bumps and ground imperfections were no match for this plow, as it glided smoothly over them with out an issue.  
      So far we are impressed with the SnowSport® All Terrain Plow, but we’ll be testing it more, with the next big North East winter storm. If you are in the market for an ATV plow, we highly recommend the SnowSport® All Terrain Plow.
