plows snow/dirt/gravel other attachements

660
Seen a lot of conversations attaching snow plows, but is there someone that makes a plow/shovel to push gravel and dirt around that will attach to the grizzly?
Or can you use the snow plow for this?
And what other attachments do you use for your Grizzly, bush hog, arreators, etc
Any insight. links, experience
thanks
ron

Warn looks pretty neat to. Both manufacturers seem to make the plows somewhat is easy on easy off. Unless I'm missing something.
thanks

The Swisher universal attachment you have to mount to your grizz goes under your atv. The front attaches to the bottom of your front A-arms and the bar extends all the way to the back and attaches to the rear hitch. You end up losing 3-4 inches when it is installed and it is enough of a pain to install that once I installed it, my recreational riding was over until it came off in the spring. I just got rid of it and moved over to the warn front mount. I just got the mount installed and there is no ground clearance loss and it is easier to attach the plow than the swisher. Right now you can probably still get the warn set up for less that the swisher. It seems the Warn is just as heavy duty as the swisher.

Thanks, what Warn setup did you go with. Looks like a 4 step process,
1. Front or Center mount kit
2. plow/push tube assembly or Power-Pivot
3. Blade tapered or straight.
In georgia snow is rare, so this will be used more for pushing gravel and dirt.
thanks

I got the 54 inch straight blade setup with the Front mount. There are three components you need to order.

1. Blade. Straight or Tapered. 50, 54, or 60 inch length.

2. Base (push tubes). These connect to the blade and have the quick disconnect connections to the mount.

3. Mount. Front or Center. I would recommend the Front. Once installed, you don't have to remove it. No ground clearance loss and connection of the blade is done in the front, not underneath the ATV.

The power pivot does not take the place of the base. This is a gear motor that mounts onto the base and is used to change the angle of the blade instead of manually changing the angle, which is pretty simple to to. IMO, not worth the extra $350 unless your money is buring a hole in your pocket and your too lazy to get off the atv to change the angle.

However a winch to raise/lower the plow is a must!

A straight blade shoud do fine for moving gravel/dirt. And either way you should probably move the dirt/gravel with the blade at an angle. Actually the blade won't take most of the wear from the gravel. There is a replaceable wear bar that bolts to the bottom of the blade and is what actually touches the ground. Easily replaced and cheaper than buying a new plow blade.

i support the warn is nice for making plow and i cannot agree the above more.

My name is Kenny and I'm new to grizzlycentral.com. I'm real glad to be here and that I found this forum! It seems to have a lot of great info here. I'm looking forward to becoming part of the community here, learning and sharing with everyone. Thanks.

Thanks,
The winch came on the Grizzly, so hopefully set in that department. I like the sound of quick disconnect as well.

How about the standard coils and shocks, do they need to be replaced with a beefier setup up due to more weight on the front/ pushing stuff around?

The stock shocks do fine. You can adjust them up a notch or two when you put the plow blade on, but not necessary. Just be a little careful when riding through dips because it will dive a little.

Warn setup looks great and sold on it, but also seen in the searches/archives a lot of the gang uses Countyplow/moose setup. In a nutshell, how are they as far as plow equipment, pros/cons.
thanks

I found these machines to be too light to effectively be pushing dirt and gravel around. They have a hard time even pushing deep snow around-too light.

Mainly the gravel is on the driveway which is about 400 ft long. The gravel starts pushing over the sides, then I'm left with mud. so it's get out with a shovel and try to fill in the bare spots or get a truck load and spread by hand. Being 54, Wisdom kind of kicks in and says let a machine do it. I just dpn't have energy or motivation do it anymore.
for what I'm wanting to do, would this put to much of a strain on the tranny or motor? Or is to light and you just spin wheels?
thanks and appreciate the input.
ron

You should be fine moving small amounts. That is basically what I did with mine. WUN is correct, you can't fill the blade up with dirt/gravel and expect this thing to move heavy loads, but to push gravel from off the driveway back into it, it is more than capable of that. As long as you don't get a build up of gravel on the blade, keep it at an angle and the gravel rolls off the blade back into the driveway.

Good deal, thats all I'm hoping for. and it looks like Warn also makes a plow bucket conversion for the plow. so hopefully If I bought a dump truck load of gravel I could move a bit at a time with the bucket and spread with the plow. Thoughts?
Realize this isn't a tractor, but it's cool with the different attachments that a person could put on.
