Just got a 2007 grizzly 450 and ordered the harbor freight badlands 5000 lbs winch for it.

Does anyone on here have a HF winch? How was the setup and attachment of it?

What about snow plows? Which is best, front mount or mid mount? I have heard goods about each approach.

What plows would you recommend??

Thanks,

Nate

Personally, I wouldn’t use a HF winch. There are great options out there that won’t break the bank. HF is great for a lot of things, but I wouldn’t trust an item like that to get me unstuck when I really need it. And like all things, it will fail at the worst possible time. Also, 5000 is way more than you need. The general rule I use is machine weight + rider weight + gear weight x 3 = minimum winch rating. Mine is a 3500 and is overkill. Just my 2 cents.
