    been thinking about getting a snow plow for my polaris ranger. anyone here use one, and how good does it work? i live out in country and have about 1/2 mile gravel drive to plow. i do have a 30hp tractor and blade. but was thinking since the ranger has a partial cab on it, i would stay out of the 'elements' a little better.

    Friend has an ATV with a plow......works very well. Brother just put one on earlier this year (finally) and when I drove it, I wanted one.
    I would imagine that the UTV would be similar.

    I use an older Gator 6x4 with a 72" blade at work for cleaning up the sidewalks, with some weight in the back it'll push a good amount of snow.

    Just for fun here's a pic from today plowing the soccer field, it had no problem pushing the 120 yard length with about 4 inches of snow.

    My uncle uses a plow on his polaris but he switches out to tracks in the winter time. It does very well

    I use a Ranger 800 XP with a Warn 72" snow plow. It moves quite a bit of snow.

    I see the moto discussed a lot on PRC forum, but looked a little flimsy to me. It might be strong enough though.

    I think the Warn is built very rugged and I had good luck with their customer service. I know the eagle is quite popular too.

    Hi!

    I have a Can-Am Renegade 500 with a plow in the front. The plow was jury rigged to be bolted Under the carriage. I have a handle at the front to raise the plow and then a small ``hook`` to keep it in place. It can be lifted 6 inches off the ground. I love that thing.! Especially at the beginning of winter when the snow if heavy with water. I use it to push the snow far from the driveway. The snowblower wouldn`t be able to handle wet snow/sludge.
    Once everything freezes up and we get fluffly snow, whether it`s an inch or a foot, I use the plow to push it as far as I can, and then use the snowblower to blow it further.

    Laurent
