I have it narrowed down to 2 choices concerning a plow for my 2017 Yamaha Grizzly 700 EPS SE.

1. Warn Pro Advantage 54" Blade
2. Kimpex - Click & Go 54" Blade

I will be retiring in less that 12 months, so if I can make a few dollars plowing the odd driveway,
that would be good.

1. I want something that doesn't require a lot of work to put the blade on, yet
something that is of good quality.
2. Something that doesn't reduce the clearance under my bike.
3. Something that doesn't require a lot of work to operate.

Looking forward to your recommendations.

Tks in Advance

I have the warn plow not on my Grizz though, I use it on my Honda 450 foreman es for plowing, I like the electric shift for forward and reverse, anyway do yourself a favor and get the 60" plow blade so when you plow to the right or left your front wheels are inside the plow width, with the 54" plow blade on your Grizz on angle your front wheels will be running over the plow ridge from your previous cut and making a mess, the warn plow I have is 60" and is built very well and easy to angle left and right, easy hook up and lifts up good and high with my winch, 4 years now no trouble.

The Warn plow will be built stronger and better than the Kimpex, but the Click-n-Go mount is slick on the Kimpex.
If you do not want to reduce clearance, you'll need a front mount plow, NOT a mid mount.

Are all these plows built to mount on any atv. I was given a moose utility plow off a '97 Kawasaki Bayuo 400 that I want to put it on my Grizz. Will it work? How good are these plows? I don't know how wide it is... Right now.

Be best to start your own thread and not steal them like this.
But since it's here already, I'll answer.

Moose plows are fine. Your going to need a moose plow mount for your specific model Grizzly. Or you might be able to modify the Kawasaki mount to fit. If you modify to fit, remember it needs to be strong. I would rather buy the proper mount than risk bending a frame.

I agree with Griz7. get the 60", made by Warn for Yamaha. Front mount. Its easy enough to take on and off.

I have the Warn 54 on my 03 Grizzly 660 and have been really happy with the clearance. I’ve never dealt with not covering the width of the bike at full angle. That being said, I just bought an 18 Grizzly 700 and a second 54 inch blade. I think the 18 is 3-4 inches wider than the 03 so I suppose I’ll find out soon enough how the coverage is.

And like the others said, go with the front mount. If you don’t mind spending a few extra bucks, hit up boltdepot and acquire stainless hardware for the plow setup. My standard hardware on the 03 is pretty worn but I do plow quite a bit in Chicago.

The 54" wide plow is perfectly fine on a stock width 660. But if you add aftermarket wheels or wheel spacers, then the 54" will not cover it.
I have a 54" on my 660 now, but only because it came with it. If I was buying new, I will not consider anything but a 60" blade.

Let us know how it works out for you. I have been thinking about a plow as well but I was worried about how it would work with the ricochet skid plates.

I’ll know soon enough. I have them on the way and am installing the warm front mount for the plow. I couldn’t find an answer anywhere so I just bit it and ordered them. Hopefully it fits. Photos make it appear that it will

(stillmotion) Here you go BaldEagle, Ricochet works with the front mount Warn plow.




Wow that's great. If I am understanding it correctly you can remove the two pins on the sides and go riding without removing the mount and really not losing any clearance. Very nice. Now, if it will ever snow again. We are about to go our forth year in a row without 4" of snow at any one time.

I live in the snow belt of Eastern Ontario, out in the country 100 km's from a four lane Hwy down a dirt side road. Even though I have a twenty car driveway, I shovel by hand bombing. Takes me about three - four hours with a shovel and scoop to move the snow. Sometimes I use my Snowblower on sections, but my driveway is odd shaped and would be difficult not to blow snow all over my wood supply etc, especially if it's windy. I'm a perfect candidate for a Plow on my Grizzly but reluctant. I hate starting it up in freezing temps and putting around pushing snow. I like the exercise....Really. You can only push the snow so far back anyways as you will see in the video and would still have to shovel. I may get a plow in the coming years and I think it would be the Click and Go one. I have seen that it it looks good.

I just installed the front mount Warn provantage 54" snow plow on my 2018 Grizzly. Have to remove winch and bumper to install front mount bracket. but after install is complete the bracket is barely noticeable, does not require loss of ground clearance, and the plow hook up only takes seconds to put in two pins (without having to lay on ground) and hook up winch. Haven't had chance to use plow yet, but very satisfied with product. Hope this helps
