Warn plow and winch kit
Had a buddy attach a winch strap to the winch. Never had a problem with breaking or getting knotted up like a cable or synthetic rope
I shouldn't even post here because it has no value-add....but I had a plow, sold it. I found that i could move more snow quicker and cleaner with my 8HP 2 stage than I could with a plow and ATV. sure, it's waaaaay more fun, but time is time and I got sick of the 2 hours of screwing around with the ATV vs 1 hour with the snowblower. Plus, get a year like we had about 4 years ago and I had no place to push anymore snow.
I also had multiple cables break as well, another reason why I was sick of the BS. I finished the job with the blower anyway. Super fun way to put some hours on the ATV and away from the wife, but when it comes down to it, it's not that efficient.
Another project, I just tore off a skid plate in the woods on my Rubicon. I ordered a new one but aluminum this time. all the holes needed to be retapped. talk about a pain in the rear.
I plow a 300 foot driveway up a hill with my Honda ES400. Even going up hill 4WD without chains works good. If the snow is very deep and heavy I sometimes need to make the first pass from the top to the bottom to get things started. I originally had a manual lift blade and last year I installed a Superwinch. The installation was tedious and a lot of work. The manual lift was a little faster than the winch but I like being able to control the blade height with the winch. It was also a struggle lifting the blade with the manual lift. I use synthetic rope instead of cable and have had no problems. It also was a pain having to press the handle reverse button while pressing the hand brake when shifting to reverse. I modified the handle so that no button or brake is required to go from forward to reverse. With these refinements the rig works great.
Warn winch may be expensive compared to other brands. I think it cost more because of its quality and design. Makes it worth the extra price if that's what you get.
