I agree with Thor. If one would take the time to go look at some plow systems and see the difference in the gauge (and quality) of steel in the plow, and mount, and tube, plus the size of the springs, the quality of the hardware and welds... when compared to a Warn, Eagle, Moose, or other systems... I think they would make a better decision, and it wouldn't be to buy that cheap Chinese Polaris junk.
On the other hand if you go with a heavier duty plow (heavier in weight),
you "may" have more of the Front end squat that we hear about when the plow is raised,
then an upgrade for front springs comes next.
Lately I've read the debates on the Polaris G series plows being cheaply
made. I have the G2 on my `07 800, so far I pushed some snow,
gravel for a driveway and some dirt. Haven't had a problem as of yet.
I can't help but wonder if it's actual a true weakness with the G plows or maybe user error of some sort.
Meaning use the plow within a safe measure and what it's built to do.
I do realize there are plows made for different jobs, but if your going
like hell and ramming into things with stuff getting bent, broken winch cable & rope. I'd question the use & user.
So if you go to a more heavy duty plow where now nothings getting
bent (regarding the plow, push tube & mount) what's taking the jolt now?
I would think that ramming jolt is being transferred through out the ATV
some where else now. Then come Spring & Summer you may find a problem
and wonder, now how did this happen?
Just a thought.
