You're thinking about a UTV snow plow but you need some more info? What works and where do you find a great deal. That's exactly what we'll cover here. To start, you can check out this video. It was produced by Yamaha for their Rhino snow plow so there's a little propaganda in it.
That being said - there's a lot of good info about snow plows in general. If you would like to see what kind of plows are available, selling prices, specs, etc., just use the link below.
Should I even use a UTV for snow plowing?
Yes - most 4WD UTVs work fine behind a snow plow. Most are capable of pushing light snow up to 2 ft. deep. Heavy or wet snow may be limited to 6 to 8 inches. The width of the snow plow blade has a lot to do with how much snow your UTV will handle. Wider blades require more power.
Can I use the stock UTV tires?
Depends - Most snow plow manufacturers recommend a more aggressive snow tire. But it won't hurt to try your stock tires first. Then maybe move to some tire chains and if you still need more traction - then try the snow tire.
What size snow plow should I get?
Plows come in several widths from about 48" up to 72". The smaller blades are good for clearing tight spaces. If you need to clear roads or large areas like parking lots, you'll need the widest blade possible. Just be aware that the larger blades will need a stout UTV to push them.
How are the plows lifted?
One of three ways.
I have a lot
of wet, heavy snow. Will a UTV snow plow do the job?
Maybe not. A Snowblower may be a better choice for you. You can see our Guide to ATV Snowblowers for more info.
Another option may be a heavier duty snowplow with hydraulic rams for adjusting the angle and tilt of the blade while operating. These add quite a bit of complexity and expense to the plow system, but make heavier plowing much easier.
Where can I find the best prices on snow plows for UTVs?
We like to at least check Ebay first. A lot of UTV dealers and accessory manufacturers list their products on Ebay. Because of all the competition, prices tend to be lower than on regular online sites.
