I ran my atv to plow my driveway today and 20 minutes later the battery was completely drained of juice and the winch no longer responded. I plow for a living with this ATV. Has anyone ran into...

    I recently bought a used 1998 Sportsman 500 4x4 and it only had 1,500 miles on it. Ran beautifully until today. I installed a winch on it yesterday and ran it for a while. Today, I went to start it and everything was normal. Rode around for a little bit and it shut off. I went to start it and it...

    Hey I read lots of posts and they have been very helpful on other issues. I have a 2014 Polaris sportsman 570. It has a kolpin winch. The free spool/lock knob doesn’t work and will only reel in and won’t go out. Just wondering if anyone has had the same problem and what the fix is. Thanks in...

    I thought I would offer some advice on failed winch diagnosis. This is probably one of many winch issues experienced by riders. A friend does a lot of plowing with his 2017 Sportsman 570, and uses a Polaris 3500 winch for the plow blade. It failed in the blade down position yesterday, so I...

    I raised the snowplow blade too high, and the rubber stop is now wedged between the fairleads. Unlocking mechanism doesn't seem to want to turn either. Suggestions?

    Looking at winches and the Polaris winch is pretty pricey. Are there winches that will work with the prewired Sportsman wiring like the Polaris winch does?

    I have been looking for winches this past month and have found that if I wanted to get an aftermarket winch I would have to do some wiring and install a switch box (as in Screw to frame) I don't want to do that. I have looked at the Regular Polaris winches but I did the check fit and none of...

    OK. My kids bought me a 3,500# HD winch kit for Father's Day. God bless them! My problem is, it isn't exactly made for my 2014 Sportsman 570. The winch part number is 2878789. The winch mounts up perfectly, but I'm having some issues with the wiring. Have any of you mounted a 2878789 winch...

    Finally have some snow to plow here in Colorado! Bought this March 1st, and no snow to plow since. Very strange. Up to 3 feet of expected through tomorrow so I just took my first run to keep ahead of the storm. WOW....just wow. This new 570 SP is so much nicer to plow with than my old 08...
