Nice. They are snow moving machines. I was always impressed with how much my grizzly could push. The teryx is on another level.

Won't ya have to set that blade at an angle to clear snow? Does pushing straight forward like a Dozer work for your needs???

I see, thanks for the explanation.

A blade that wouldn't angle would be pretty useless if the snow was very deep and a person needed to clear a good distance of roadway.

We have snow coming tomorrow so your post is of interest right at the moment.

We live on a 1/8-mile dead-end road that the county doesn't service so I have to use a blower to keep access to the county road. I'm starting to think a blade for our Teryx might be useful for our needs also.

At our first home we lived in cottage country and we where a mile from the main road . I used my wife's 400 Arctic Cat with chains on to plow our way out in the morning to get to work ..
The Teryx shouldn't have a big problem moving a lot of Snow ..

The strobes on the front and rear are from a auto supply store ( Action Truck Caps ) and Are DOT Rated ... the ones on the sides I got off Amazon..

Yes it does! And if you get too much speed, it will blow it over your windshield too

how did it work for you? i put a kimplex plow on my 2017 Teryx LE4 with tracks. the Teryx worked great but the plow failed miserably. The materials in the angling part was too light and it bent. the plow components are too light for it. I also had a heck of a time with the winch snapping the cable when i lifted the blade. i did get the hang of it but if overlifted, it instantly snapped.

did a little modding to my plow ..I added a second winch to pivot it left and right ..The turnbuckle I used had to be changed to a heavier one but other than that it works great..

Easthgrand,
Funny I was just getting ready to upload a photo of my setup and another poster beat me too it.
He has the identical setup I use.
Without the pulley the blade will come up very quickly. To quickly for me if i am attempting to do any fine plowing or pushing up banks and such. The pulley will cut the speed in half. I got rid of the cable ss soon as I installed a winch. Synthetic line will actually last longer and is much easier to handle if you the winch alot.
Regarding the Kimpex plow .... I did extensive research before I bought the 72" KFI. The KFI system is much heavier and mounting system is very rugged. I use my plow daily, have a huge driveway to plow plus take care of a few elder folks driveways. The only issue I have had so far is a cracked the blade attachment bracket but easy repair. It was my own fault as I hit a stump very very hard.

Have a look. The setup is identical to Shaun's.
