WARN PROVANTAGE PLOW

Dealer installed a 60" front mount plow vantage blade when it was supposed to be a 54" blade. Do you think the extra 6" and weight will make a big difference?

you should be fine I would recomend setting the shocks stiffer when plowing anyway, I have the same plow except mines the center mount (they ordered me the wrong one,I wanted the front mount) and I have no trouble pushing it.

I have a 60" front mount and my front end is set to the middle setting. The front dips when lifted but works just fine.

No worries man. You want the 60" anyway. Yes the front of the atv really dips when lifting the blade off the ground but it will work just fine. I would also recommend stiffening up the shocks as was said above.

I have a cycle country front mount plow with 54" blade. Ive only used it once but i turned the front shocks up to ther 3rd setting to help with the front end dipping when lifting the plow. Seems to work good. I attach my snatch block to my front rack and run the winch cable through it to the plow. It seems to slow the up and down movements and makes it a bit more controlable so it wont slam down when i let the winch out.

Something I found extremely helpful with my plow (54" Warn) was to mount a storage tub on the rear rack, inside of which I keep two 50lb bags of small landscape stones (they're easier to use than sand tubes when they eventually break!). It really helps counter-balance the weight of the plow so all four tires grab great. I can empty it and/or take the storage tub off in less than a minute.

Ok I know this topic has been beat to death...but is there anyone using a 54" straight blade that can confirm when on a full angle it will clear the Grizz tires? I don't have a large driveway.

Dealer has agreed to give me a 54". Before I return the 60" I'd like to hear from other 54" owners..
Thanks

I have the 60" blade and I run 28" zillas, with the blade at full angle its close but never had a issue of them hitting.

Thanks, I think I'm ok with the tires...I was thinking more along the lines of clearing a path for the tires when full angled. I don't want to be driving over the windrow, etc..

The consensus on the forum is GO 60"..and its probably better...BUT I just want to know if the 54" will clear a path for the tires, bc I like the nimbleness to the 54" blade as opposed to the 60".
Yes, it clears the tires, that is what I run. Sure a 60"clears by much more, but personally it is too big for pushing a lot of snow up into piles. It is heavier and harder to move around and store in the off season. We all got by 350 Big Bears with 48" blades for decades and now everyone thinks they need a minimum of a 700 with a 60" with wings.

No issue with the 54" blade clearing an adequate path for the wheels. And after using a 7' 6" Western plow on my truck for years, the 54" on my Griz 550 does the job in almost the same time...plus it's WAY more fun. My two driveways are both over 200 ft long. Another advantage to the Griz is that I have more options on where to put the snow, too.
