Warn Front Mount Proadvantage Plow

Just ordered one and will pick it up in a couple of weeks.

Can anyone give me an idea on the installation procedure? By that time it will be a wee bit chilly outside and I'd like to know how many hours of fun I can expect to spend in the driveway.

Thanks.

I just installed proadvantage on my xmr. Took me an hour to put plow together with power pivot. Then another hour to install the front mount. Just remove the winch and stock winch bracket. Then install the Front mount. Then reinstall winch on front mount. Works great.

Thanks, doesn't sound like much hassle.

I've heard that winch cables can suffer with all the up-down action, so I drilled some small holes in the fairlead rollers and pumped in a bit of grease. Makes a big difference; the rollers spin with even the slightest contact.

But I've read that some remove the cable and substitute either nylon webbing or rope. Any thoughts on that?

I had a snow plow on my other ATV and I broke a lot of synthetic and wire cables while lifting the plow. I switched to a 6 ft section of nylon strap and didn't break it. On that ATV, I just hooked the nylon strap to the plow. On this plow, I just have to figure out how I can use a bigger nylon strap on this Provantage plow, as the winch cable on mine goes through a plastic rope guide on the rear of the plow and rope guide will only fit the winch size cable or rope. It is not a pulley. I will see how long my synthetic rope last before breaking. I also purchased a pulley and might replace the rope guide with it.

I have the warn front mount without the power pivot. Installed it 2 years ago so bit hard to remember all details but do remember I did not remove cables from winch, just removed bolts and pulled it out of the way on right side and slide in new mount. I kept the mount bolts loose and mounted blade and moved blade full left and right and then tightened bolts when I felt the blade edge was equal pressure at both extremes. Also if you have the warn winch that came with atv you will need to route the cable differently otherwise (at least on older winches) the blade will slowly lower after you drive a few hundred feet or so, maybe less maybe more. This is due to the cam am warn winch (true warn's are okay) having no brake. If you search the forum you will see pictures of the pulley modification you will need to make. with the pulley modification you will get two things, no blade drop and raising and lowering blade will occure in a slower motion - meaning you will be less likely to over raise the blade and brake the cable crimp. One last note, run standard size tires (especially on front with no suspension lift) or you will have problems with blade when angled with the front edge and back edge of blade applying even pressure on ground.

Great info, thanks.

I Googled every part number separately or in a kit form for the lowest price, printed it out from each site, then called gowarn.com and they beat my lowest prices. I also go free shipping.
