Hey chuck, That looks great. I will have to put up some pics of my frankenplow. Not nearly as professional looking as yours. Nice job.
How does it attach. Thats the one thing I hate about mine is it's style of attaching. It's not a 10 sec dismount like the factory style ones.

That's a nice plow you built!! Ever thought of building and selling them, you could probably make some decent money. I'm no expert on plows...but yours looks like a well thought-out and hefty design.

it say "POLARIS" because i had a decal and stuck it on the front.

also polaris dont build anything this heavy, much less there plows are all steel. the red part on mine is alum... not steel.

but if that isent enough. ill give you $1000 cash if you can prove its a polaris mfg plow.... prepair to fail tho....

you must be either board looking to try and prove someone wrong. but you picked the wrong guy. or just jellious that i can build something that actuly lookes good.

I have never come across a manufacturer that decals the side of the plow that does the pushing! That is a damn nice plow...very impressive...can you give me an idea of what it cost you to make it?

about $30. pretty much all the steel was free. the only thing i hada buy was the wear bar, and 2 flat bars for support on the bottom of the plow where the wear bar bolts to.

thanks for the + input!!!
