mostly use it for loading salt trucks. we actually just got done building a snow/light material bucket for it, just have to mount the bob-tach and it will be set. made a 84"wide, 36"deep, 30" tall from some 1/4" steel plate a buddy had sitting around. thinking of making a power angle plow for it next. we want to see how the bucket works first. i dont know if a power angle plow would be more productive or not. oh well only have about $200 wrapped up in the bucket anyway.

Were you able to get your 12 1/2 " ? I see you have oversized tires, did that cause a height problem?

It's getting to be that "Blizzard" is not such a dirty word anymore !
Nice truck, but it needs a red stripe on the bottom. :D

Hook up couldn't be simpler, you drive up to the plow, activate a power switch in the cab, plug in the plow harness, flip a toggle switch that hydraulically cinches the plow to the truck, insert two easily accessable hitch pins, raise the kickstand and your done.

The plow frame has funnel shaped receivers that guide the plow in to place, no crow bars or pulling needed. It sounds like a lot of steps but it takes about a minute and there is no physical exertion.

As for maintainance, the angle cylinders are readily accessable, the lift cylinder will take a few minutes to remove and I didn't notice if the pump had a drain or not. I would think you could disconnect a hose and pump in to a bucket. The resevoir is opaque so you can see when it's empty so as not to run the pump dry.

I don't know if you've been following my saga, but I've posted my experience with performance on another thread, "Blizzard plow update"

no other attachments for the quad YET. just ordered a bunch of hunting stuff, rifle scarab, front and rear gear bags, etc. from my buddy who works for yamaha directly. yamaha is blowing out their not so popular camo patterns in everthing they have. getting the stuff dirt cheap. as far as the tires they are 35" BFG AT's, and the truck has never been stuck, while plowing anyway, since i bought it new in 97'. havent had the chance to plow with the new blizzard yet but hopefully mother nature wil cooperate this coming week with some snow. if anyone is considering a blizzard i saw a guy on ebay that was selling them new in the box for $2400 plus shipping. unfortunatley i saw it a few days after i picked mine up.

the light frame comes off very easily by removing 2 bolts, just slides right off. i will probably remove the light bar and just use my trucks headlights when plowing. it sits so high i never had to use plow lights before. i also thought of wiring my truck headlights to stay on when i switch the plow lights on so ive got double the light. anyone ever try this?

Check with your local authorities on the lighting issue. I can't say for sure, but the Town Highway Garage mechanic told me that in NY you must have one set or the other lit, but not both.

i think your right pelican but as long as i switch em off before going back onto public roads i should be fine. in other words just use the 4 light setup while doing private parking lots etc. just a thought.

Grizz Plow

I have a 99 600 Grizz with a 60 inch plow from cycle county.

The 600 does really well....I'll bet the 660 is even better....

Questions for you....

Why the 48 inch not the 60?? sidewalks??

also...

Do you have trouble backing up....if I back up at more than 1/2 throttle the ATV cuts out...I think it's a rev limiter for reverse....does the 660 have that??

Thanks

my polaris has a rev limiter in reverse also but it also has an override switch so I can full throttle in reverse and really smack something hard(hopefully not)so becareful they go fast and sometimes it can be hard to recover a mistake quickly in reverse before causing any damage by hitting something;)
