      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.
