Snow Plow

Hello,
Just picked up a Teryx today. Is there anyone in this forum that has a plow setup going on one of these or thinking of a plow setup? I see nothing out there for the plow mount. I rolled the dice with confidence that someone is gonna put the plow kit out for it and im hoping before winter. I traded my atv's in for it and i used the atv for plowing. Any feedback on the plow situation would be appreciated.

I know Hunterworks sells a plow for the Treyx. Call Todd.

Hunterworks if you are listening look at the angle of the winch cable. You are putting about twice as much force in the horizontal direction than required to lift the plow in the vertical direction. Maybe have an attachment point below the winch or as close to that point as possible. I understand it is hard because the plow does not mount to the middle of the frame. Also if you need the long drawn out version of my theory just PM me.

I don't think Hunterworks makes the plow, they just sell it. It is an American Eagle brand.

That is a old picture of a previous model push tube and mount plate on a Rhino. There is a newer mount and push tube.

I sold a guy the plow for his Teryx and he sent me pictures and I forgot to put them on the site.

The new parts are much better and the angle is much better!!

We have had good luck with the Eagle brand of plows.

Glad to hear about the new angle. I checked out the new pics and I am impressed with how high the plow lifts. My biggest complaint about plows and mounting hardware is how low the clearance becomes. I probably will never get a plow for the teryx unless I enclose the cab. For now my Arctic Cat will do all the hard work.

The clearance is the best part about this plow, there is no piece lower than anything on the Teryx now. In some of the pictures it seem it is but it is above.

When the plow is on there and you are pushing it is on the ground so anything behind it won't matter anyway. When you take it off the ground clearance rises due to the weight of the plow being off and since the pivot points are above the bottom of the frame they become a moot point.
