    looking for some help guys my son wants a plow to put on an 03 honda rancher 350 4x4, I was wondering if there is a difference in the brands,this is just going to be personal use I found a complete 50" set up @ rocky mountain for $349 shipped manual lift.Its called a city slicker plow? but I see plows as high as $700 on up is there that much difference? thanks for any help or feedback

    I personaly prefer either the warn or the cycle country line. They are a bit heavier and that helps when your plowing. I really like the warn cause it will lift the blade really high. What part of ohio are you in? Im up in Mentor if your close you can stop by and see my 60 inch cycle country....Rob

    Naw, Ive never bent anything. And my plow is a 60 inch one too. My only wish is it would lift higher ,it makes stacking alot easyer. Thats where the warn plow comes in. It lifts alot higher then my current plow on my quad. The one thing I will tell you is to make sure when your out plowing push the snow as far out of the way as you can. Once you push it and it sits for a little while it will not move till it melts.....Rob

    I am running a Warn 50" with the electric actuator on my grizzly 600. Have not got to use it yet but the blade is decently heavy for a small plow and pushes the stones in my driveway down to the dirt.

    Cant wait to test it on some snow, it does lift very high and fast so it should be nice and easy to stack. I got mine from 4atvtires.com for a pretty good deal shipped, best I could find for the complete setup. It runs just shy of $500 with shipping for me.

    This is more money than the one you posted, but is much more convienent with the electric lift.

    I use to have a Cycle-Country plow on a Yamaha Kodiak. It was a good plow but it did get bent up a little bit. The last 4 wheeler plow I had was a Warn on a ArcticCat. It seemed to hold up a little better than the Cycle-Country.

    Most ATV plows are cheap built.
