    my friend who has a 2004 polaris magnum 330 has a glacier plow on it and I hooked it up to his quad one day and it is simple to hookup. i like the glacier plows there nice.

    ya there endorsed by polaris. and also liek the cycle country and moose plows the plow doesnt have a lot of side to side movement in the front of the quad.

    Alright guys i will check out the other plows to, like mentioned before the thing i like about the glacier is that it says it take seconds to install and uninstall on the quad.
    Anything else i should be know before i purchase a plow..

    Thanks for all the help

    The glacier mount also doesn't take any of your ground clearance away when the plow is off the machine. Which might be important if you use the ATV for offroading.

    I've had the Glacier plow on an 03' Polaris 700 for 4 years of pretty aggressive plowing. No issues with the plow.

    when it says it takes seconds to install dont believe it. fisher also says minute mount. it is more like 5 minute mount lol and I know this from experience. I have a cycle country mount on the bottom of my quad and I dont lose any clearance. Plus I have the 2 inch lift on it also. So I have 14 inches of clearence. I would check out the glacier.

    The glacier plow really only take 15-20 seconds to hook up. Its really very simple.

    the plow takes less than a minute to hook up but the mounting plate will take much longer to get on and off

    Hey guys thanks for the reponses... How about is anybody using the warn plows with the power pivot??? Seems like a good option and a pretty decent blow..

    Thanks again

    Well everyone i have been searching in Calgary.. And i cant really find any dealers for any plows out here, so im looking between a warn with a power pivot or the glacier plow (Im still looking for dealers of cycle country or moose to)??? Do most brands use push tubes.. I know the glacier doesnt!! Sorry im new to the atv plowing field.

    I have the moose 60" county plow, with the quick release platform. It does not effect ground clearance. It is so easy to take on and off.

    i'd get the glacier plow. only thing if you like riding and go over logs and rocks. you have to watch the bottom plate where the lip of the plow goes into the middle of the atv. so you dont bend it.
