Just bought my first quad, a 2016 700 Kodiak EPS, yesterday. Ordered the snow plow/winch today. I bought it to remove snow from my circle drive which covers nearly 1\4 acre, and do a little trail riding in the mountains when the snow melts. Anyhow, I am glad to be here with y'all!


Blessings, Dennis

I received the new plow package, which I ordered incorrectly..... I thought I was ordering a winch and what it is an electric plow lift, dumb me, so I sent it back and ordered a KFI Stealth 2500 winch. Have it all installed and it works like new money!


As far as trailing is concerned I won't do any until the snow has mostly melted in the higher elevations. My wife and I have some friends that trail ride with theirs and they are anxious to go when the weather clears.

I bought the plow package from motoxoutlet.com. Here is the link to their site http://www.motoxoutlet.com/ and when you are there you can pick the brand of ATV you are wanting the plow for and pick what lift you want to use. If you want to use a winch and don't already have one just choose use your own winch and then either find one on their site or get one elsewhere. The plow for my ATV is a Cyclecountry, but from looking at several of them they all look nearly identical in design. What I like about motox is they send an exact fit mount for the customers ATV without any alterations to the vehicle. I was on another web site and was ready to order the plow and read the small print that said the mount was universal and would probably require drilling, etc., so I didn't order from them.

Previously to buying the ATV and plow the snow wasn't getting removed from the drive. This is the 3rd winter in this house and my wife and I have 4x4 vehicles and just drive over it and pack it to ice, which I really didn't like. I still have 3" of snow that is packed and icy, although I did remove any loose snow still on there, and when this ever melts I will not drive over any new snow until the drive is cleared.

2011 Dodge Ram 2500 w/Cummins and a 2012 GMC Terrain all-wheel drive. I thought about putting a plow on the Dodge but it would have been hard making turns with it. The Kodiak works great for snow removal.

BTW, the Terrain gets around easier in snow than my truck, well as long as it isn't real deep!

I think that's due to the lower power output and smaller wheel footprint of the Terrain since that amount into the perfect power delivery and rubber that cuts right through.
