Got the six foot Speedplow mounted up on my '16 HDX. Works great and maintains full ground clearance. Drive up to it, hook up the winch, and pull it to the Prowler. Plow locks itself in without having to do anything else (no crawling around!) The plow locks in to a device mounted above the skid plate, level with the frame. I had to cut holes in the skid to allow the plow to mount up. Also had to trim plastic on front fascia to allow the front part of the mount to sit. AC has the shape of the front mount to flow the same as the fascia......would look factory if I had better cutting skills.

The blade angle adjustment is very nice......just press down a lever with your foot and tilt blade.

To dump the plow, just drive to where u want it stored. Pull a lever mounted nice in the cab like it belongs there. Plow drops down while the winch cable disconnects from push tubes. Reel in winch and drive away without stepping foot outside the Prowler.

Now we shall see how durable it is.......

Sounds awfully nice! My Eagle is all manual and needs alittle tweaking on the lower mounting through bolts to make it easier to put on. I better do that today, snow on the way!

I hope we get more snow soon too! I've been trying to get pictures up for folks interested in seeing it but haven't had any success. Any questions from people looking at Speedplow fire away

I'm like Bryan, fight putting the pins in! Actually it is not bad, but I'm in a heated garage! Still have not put mine back on yet!

I know, they suck big (.)ie! So I fixed that problem today. Marked how far the pins go through the lower mount. Drilled new 3/32nd holes about an 1/8" out from the mark for the clips to go through then ground the flush part of the pins to a point about 1/2" back toward the new holes. Line up very easy and push in with a small tap. I should have done this the day I mounted the plow whn it was new. Would have saved about 20 headaches!

That's a good solution......./it's been awhile since I have cleared snow with an atv........but I hated(can't put into words) wrestling the plow getting pins to go through. Figured this time I'd try the new plow system before getting one with pins.

I just hope it stands up like the plows with pin mounts

Bryan

I went to Tractor Supply and got a 3-pt hitch pin with a handle on it, cut it to size, drilled a hole for pin and made a point on the end so I only need to get it close to pin it in.

Tim, thats a good idea! I have to go to the local farm supply store this weekend, I'll pick some up and fix my buddy up with a pair and make a spare pair for myself. Its nice to get them close and smack them in with a soft nosed hammer.
RD, I replied to your alternator message, thats gonna help out alot when running my cheapo defroster when plowing.

I used 3/4" hitch pins on mine, nice rubber coated handle, and plenty of material to drill and taper the end!
