My next warn plow complaint it's the stupid pins they use on the front mount. Or rather the pin retainers. Did they really expect those pins to stay in there?

Now what do I do that I've lost one of those special pins?

Head to an automotive store buy two of something standard and that looks like it will work..... head home and drill out holes to match new! I don't know what it looks like, got a picture?

Nothing like it at the auto parts store. I put a pin in it with a clevis pin and it works but it's allot harder to get in. I called warn and they just directed me to a dealer to buy one. But that dealer was out if stock and it would cost more for shipping than it would the pin. I am not happy with the warn front plow mount. I wish I would have bought something different.

I'll take a pic of the pin when I get home. Yes this thing is fighting me but I should say, I do plow allot of snow.

I should have hooked those pins up with a small chain like I thought when I put the darn thing on.

I should say the plow it self is great. But the front mount sucks.

would a PTO pin work for you? they have the spring clip that keeps them from backing out. Harbor Fright sells an assortment set for less than $10 and you'll have more than you'll know what to do with, or have uses for. Trust me, I still haven't figured out what all I'm going to use them for.

The key with the pins to be sure they are snug. I used some washer and that solved the issue. I do agree that the design is lacking talent.

I'm not sure what a PTO pin is. I'll look it up. I've got to figure something better out.

Could you explain better or maybe show a pic?

I looked up the PTO pin and it's kind of like that but with a funny bend. You will see when I post a pic. And those won't work. Close but the mount gets in the way.

I've never had problems with mine, it is an odd design they use though

I'm not seeing how a PTO pin wouldn't work. especially if you used one with round clip. Show pics of the mount please.

the PTO pin wont work because it's a C channel box and the push tube arm is in the way of the spring clip.
