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.
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.
