A snow plow is an attachable device that can remove snow or ice from the roads. While truck snow plows usually remove snow for commercial purposes, ATV and UTV plows are mainly for residential areas. The reason is that snow plows for side-by-side vehicles are primarily lightweight. The vehicle's size also influences the amount of snow you can plow with it. Snow plows can mount on the UTV chassis. Some snow plow kits are universal and can mount to almost any UTV setup.
Things to consider when shopping for a snow plow kit
There are many things to consider when shopping for snow plow kits or parts.
Hydraulic vs. Mechanical Snow Plows
The two main types are mechanical and hydraulic snow plows. For mechanical snow plows, you need a winch system to raise and lower the blade as you plow. Some kits come with a winch, while others do not. If your kit doesn't come with a kit, you'll have to purchase one yourself. Hydraulic snow plows are more advanced and don't need any winch, chains, or pulley to control the blade movement.
For blades, you can choose between the straight blade and the V blade. The most popular and effective blade shape is the V shape.
Blade Lift Height
While selecting a snow plow, check how high the blade can lift. Take this seriously if you stay in areas with thick snow. The ideal snow plow should have a blade lift of 30°.
Ease of Use:
Some kits are easy to attach, detach, and use. Others are more complex. Choose a snow plow kit that is easy to use. You should be able to operate it and adjust angles easily. Also, snow can cause rust, so ensure that your snow plow is corrosion-resistant. Apart from having steel material, the blade should have an anti-corrosion coating.
