    Hey, that thing is sweet looking. Welcome to Plowsite by the way. How are you liking the Moose Rapid Mount? Seems like a pretty good idea, no more crawling under the Atv. Good luck this winter and happy posting.

    thanks! i like the rapid mount for the obvious reason of being quick to mount but i was looking at the mount and from the summer riding it took a beaten. i should of looked at it more during hard riding season. next year i will be taking it off. just a side note for guys that do in town stuff with sidewalks would reccomend, real high lift height to get up on curbs. my buddy has the under frame mount and he spends alot of time finding a spot to get on sidewalks.

    That sure is a nice rig you got. My Grizzly with Warn plow will lift close to 15in high to go over curbs. I wish Warn would have introduced the Provantage plow system last year when I bought my plow as it wouldn't hang down as low as the belly mount.

    Maybe YOU like to brag to guys about your size but I personally only mention that to the ladies.
    The driveway has a crown in it and is raised up in the middle. If I have it on a level surface it's close to 15in as I stated.

    yeah my buddys grizzly has about 15 inches of lift to at plow, but the part that mounts to frame is what gets hung up. i am liking the proadvantage set-up also. if momma lets me next spring i am looking at a new outlander with power steering and new motor improvements! i will just sell my current quad with plow set up and buy the proadvantage setup with new 4 wheeler.

    i didn't have the flap when i first got the plow, but after the 1st little snow i went and got one. It's helps out alot, not perfect but a huge improvement. I am very guilty of going to fast(when plowin). So much so my neighbor asked me to slow down! lol lol up where your at i bet you get lots of snow to work that can-am!!

    yes those are cam-am ones, but i here that moose makes a set that gives a little more protection. they help alot but when it's real muddy you still get a good bit of mud on you. if i put my stock wheels on it is not bad at all. not sure if you ever been to aurora wheelers but it is nothing but cam -am related info. real good site where i learned lots of stuff to do.just search it i think you will enjoy.
