I have already decided that i will get the Moose County plow and i am unsure if my stock grizzly will push the 60" plow or will it have any problems other than pushing it like the front shocks being to soft or any other problems.any help on what size to get would be of a great help.thanks in advance.

I do not have the Moose County, but I do have the Moose standard 60" plow and the Grizzly will push it like nobodys business. I turn up the shocks(stiffer) to the highest settings in the front and it seems just fine when the plow is on the machine. I am curious as to why you would need the County plow versus the standard plow Moose offers. The standard Moose 60" will push quite a bit of snow and does a great job at that. If I was plowing sidewalks, streets, and parking lots I would consider the Moose County plow only because it is 26" high and tapers down to 16". With plowing just my driveway and a few neighbors driveways, I have great results with the standard 60" Moose plow. This is my second Moose plow and before that I had a Cycle Counrty plow and the Cycle Country didn't hold up like the Moose. Whichever Moose plow you choose you will be pleased I am sure.

thanks and the reason i want the county plow is because i live in Md and it snow quite a bit and i would like to plow out a path from were my grizz is parked and my house which will get about 2-3 fett of snow so i think the county might work a litle bit better.buti don't think my grizzly will push all of the snow or maybe it willso i'll find out.

Brad,

When the snow is rather deep, I pick up the plow a little bit to remove some of the snow(1st pass), then hit it again to open the initial area. Then its just a matter of using 3/4's of the blade width(fully angled) and making a few passes and its pretty easy with the machine. We get quite a bit of snow here in New England and I have learned from plowing with ATV's that it's much easier wear and tear on a machine when you keep up plowing with a storm. When I hear the forcast and they predict a major 'Noreaster I will let the snow accumilate about a foot then I hit it, when it's another foot I will hit it again, and so on. I found it's much easier on the machine and causes less overheating and added stress. I have plowed a path many times from my barn to my house(driveway included) and never had a problem whatsoever using my method mentioned above. You will learn what method will work the best for you as you plow each time. Also something I learned was to make sure to push the pile back far enough each storm. One year I did not do this and we had so many storms,(one right after the other) and I literally did not have any room to put the snow I plowed. So now I always remember to push the piles as far back as possible.

The County plow should work well nevertheless because its a tad bigger height wise then the Moose standard plow. As long as you use some common sense plowing the Grizzly will do a great job.

Ok, sorry after an afternoon of searching useless internet stuff I finally found out there is a mounting kit. Sorry about the question. I was just trying to shorten the internet searching experience. I've noticed a couple people here in Missouri. Hello to everyone. I've spent the last two hours here reading post. Thanks to the owner of this site. Great J.O.B.!

I went to the atv shop and they had some cycle country plows in stock. and i was wondering to go with the 52" cycle country or stick with the moose.i found out it would be 500 dollars for the 52" with the electric lift and 700 for the same plow with 2500lbs. warn winch but i figured up off the manufactures site the cycle county would be really $687
and the moose 50" would be $618.so please tell me what you think i should do.

Brad,

Just to give you an idea of your deal, here is what I paid for a plow/winch set-up.
Moose 60" standard plow, with push tubes and bottom mounting plate. $440.00 tx included. Purchased from local Yamaha dealer.

Warn 2.5 CI #2500 winch. $280.00 Purchased from Rocky Mountain.

Warn winch mount.$45.00 Purchased from Rocky Mountain.

So that comes to $765.00 for everything and I had to install/assemble everything myself. The electric plow lifts are OK I guess, but I find it much better having a winch I can use all year long. I personaly like the Moose much better then the Cycle Country but I did pay a little less money when I bought the Cycle Country plow set-up. I wouldn't own another one though since I changed to Moose, and this is my second Moose set-up. Good luck and I hope this info helped.

I have the Moose County plow on my grizz and it handles it fine! That machine is an animal! We finally got some serious snow and it plowed it like nothin. Nice thing about county plow when snow is real deep angle it a little and drop the blade, no stoppin it!! I have the side shield mounted on mine. That seems to help alot also. The other reason youll want this plow is it just looks friggin awesome!! Nuff said!

Hello, I made 300.00 with my grizzly the other day snow plowing. That should make a payment and some pocket change. Well then I have to pay taxes on it, well I had fun making it anyway. Easy come, and easy go. I used the Yamaha plow and the warn winch 2.5 something

I just put a plow on my Grizz a couple weeks ago... thing came too late to do a lot of plowing when we had our two big snowstorms, but there's more snow in the forecast for next week so we'll see.

I put a 48" Polaris Glacier Plow on and love it. I got a great deal on it at the local Polaris shop because I do their computer work and run their online store for them. The Glacier setup is slick because it disconnects in ten seconds and reconnects in 30, without having to lay down on the floor or anything either.

Hey Rob, Do you have aftermarket skid plates? If so, how was it mounting the mounts? From the pictures I've seen, it looks like I'd have to drill through my skids to run the u bolts and probably want to take the mount kit off for the rubicon. Thanks, Bryan

I have the factory alum bashplate. The dealer that installed mine (due to a broken left wrist, I couldn't do it myself) said he had to modify the bashplate to make the mount fit. It should be easy enough to remove the mount for Summer, as it does tend to stick out and hang down and would be in the way and/or get destroyed in technical riding, such as the Rubicon, which I do want to do again this year.

I'll try to get some photos of it soon.

Rob

Yea, that laying on the ground to install sucks, but I'd like to see a pic of how another one is mounted. Chuck

I don't have to lay on the ground to mount my plow. It mounts and unmounts in just a minute without me even bending over.

I have 2 sons that will mount it just for the fun off running the Grizz.
