Your Polaris dealer is the best place. There should be 1 spare part on your system that can be installed easily.

I broke mine like the second time using it. I went to the dealer and ordered 3 just to have a back up. I think it was like $14 each

Just ordered this system and now I am worried. How easy does the pin shear?

The pin does not break that easy. My pin did not break, my cable did!!

When you plow. Just remember that the winch uses a lot of battery juice. If you are doing a long driveway. Its better cause your RPMs will be high to charge your battery. Keep your quad on a battery tender.

Speaking with experience this year. This is my first winter too.

Used mine twice already and I think they shear pretty easy.. I mean you can use a regular bolt but don't want to break shit.. I couldn't find any else where..where at lowes do they have them?.. $14 is just to much for polaris ones

Keep in mind that if you use something else than the Polaris shear pin, you will probably damage hundreds of bucks of parts instead of the shearpin only...

That can be true Kylle. When it comes to the plow. He should be ok. 29er just go in and ask someone. They are by the hardware. You need to know the size for your plow. You might have had a bad one, that's why it broke. They do not break that easy. Where do you live? Maybe if it was really cold.

I live in PA lots of plowing lately.. I will have to check them out you need the right one so the adjustment handle pin goes through..

On my 3rd time plowing this winter and already snapped mine, they do flip over so you get two uses. 14 dollars is a bit much for a pin I could see breaking quite often. Will have to wait and see if it is a common thing or just a freak occurrence.

What is the part number for the shear pin? My local dealer is saying that pin is only available by ordering a $90 replacement pin kit. I'll gladly pay $14/pin vs $90 for a kit.

If he looks it up it's there it's there.. The # and part is in the plow installation instructions also..

This thread has me curious..... where is this pin located? Anyone got a picture?

I say a video of this Glacier Pro system and it looks nice..... but see lots of "shear pin" issues.

My driveway is hard pack and 3/4 mile long. Between the driveway and the parking areas, it takes me about an hour with my plow truck. It went down and I had to use my 550 with a Glacier set up. Twice. No failures. Hit a stump at 5 mph, side angled to the left, no shear. The only time I broke the shear is when I hit another hidden stump at 12 MPH. Threw my ass off the ATV. Only damage, sheared pin.

Not sure what you guys are going to shear the pins, but it takes some doing to shear the pin.

I too thought of replacing it with a 3 point hardened pin, but now I am glad I did not. Got one from the dealer for $14....

I was going down a sidewalk with the blade angled at about 10 mph. The edge of the blade caught a chunk of retaining wall that was sticking out and spun me sideways and broke the shear pin. Otherwise it has taken some hard hits and I haven't had any issues. It takes a lot of force to shear it off so it would be a matter of being wreck less or plowing pretty fast to go through shear pins as fast as some claim from my experience with the setup.

I broke the two sides of one pin.. I live in PA... I checked for a replacement pin at the hardware store with no luck.. Had to buy a polaris pin which is ridiculous for $14..

I sheared one today on my first serious time using the plow. It did what it was supposed to. The driveway I was plowing has some rocks sticking up and I hit one plenty hard. Better that than something in the frame or me!

I have a Glacier Pro. Where is this shear pin located?
If I hit an hard object my blade folds down then flips back up.
