Check out www.plowsite.com. They have an ATV section that I am sure you will find your answer. I personally am installing a WARN on my Suzuki Eiger because the price was right. I have heard, though, that the moose plows are hard to beat.

I have the 54" Warn plow and I've been very happy with it, no problems at all

Thanks i got the warn 54" cyclone. very sturdy except bad lift winch system i had to weld a bar with eye bolt to the frame of my brand new plow! o well it works.
also i don't like the mount because i get hung up when i go trail riding. quads 1/2 work 1/2 play. SO on the off season ill just take it off even tho it take s an hour!
Sturdy seeing should last forever seeing i have a welder.

I was kind of up in the air on which plow to get (warn or moose) , I ended up getting a moose county 60".

Here are some pics and what its like on the grizzly.

I'm also going to replace the lift bar on my moose RM3, it just doesn't lift high enough for my liking.

I've had both and I say the Moose is the better system hands down. The weak point in the Warn system IMO is the mount that attaches to the quad. The Moose system has a VERY sturdy mounting plate that sits flat on the bottom of the quad. I left mine on year round and never worried about it getting damaged. The Warn mounting bracket sticks down below the qaud and is not nearly as rugged as the Moose. I've already had to beat mine back into shape a few times in the two months I've had it after getting caught on a rock or log. I'm really missing my Moose plow already this winter.

I would have a long, hard look at the Eagle Plow systems.

As I had mentioned above...the EAGLE plow is a hybrid of the Moose and the CC....created by the best of the industry....American Mfg, who designed the plow and manufactures it is owned by the former SUCCESSFUL owner of CMP, who still makes the Moose Plow...If you call American Mfg. Ask for Curt Hough..he is the owner and is still NEVER too busy to speak to FANS
