If you own an ATV and live in a region that has plenty of snowfall during the winter, getting a snowplow for your quad is going to be a must.
The best snowplows for your ATV are the WARN 78950 ProVantage, Extreme Max 5500.5010 UniPlow, Black Boar ATV Snowplow, and KFI Products 105060 Pro-S Silver.
Winter is just around the corner and there is no better way to be prepared for the upcoming snow season than to have your ATV equipped with a snowplow. If you are like most people who live in snowy regions of the country, you know firsthand how tedious of a chore it is to go out into the blistering cold to shovel the snow around your property. Save yourself the time, hassle, and frostbite of dealing with your driveway’s snow by plowing through it with your ATV in minutes. At the end of the day, it’s much better to work smart than it is to work hard. With that being said, you want to pick the best possible snowplow that is right for you, which is why you should be aware of the great options that are available out there, as each one has its own perks. To help you choose the best possible snowplow for your ATV, we are going to take you through our top picks.
After years of working as an ATV mechanic, I have had an extensive amount of experience testing and equipping snowplows onto quads. My experience has indicated that it is best to choose a snowplow for your ATV based on the specs that you are looking for, as well as your overall budget.
These days, the market is flooded with different options for ATV snowplows, which can make choosing the right plow a little intimidating. The reason for this is that snowplows are becoming quite versatile - with manufacturers designing some of their plows to be advantageous for different types of conditions. Before you begin assessing your options, you should first consider some factors that could help narrow down your search - with the most important being, how you plan on using your snowplow.
If you need a snowplow for your ATV that can handle basic loads such as plowing a small driveway or sidewalk, then you will find that there are plenty of standard-sized options out there that will get the job done. However, if you have a larger property or need to clear an industrial site that requires you to cover a considerable amount of ground, opting for a larger, heavy-duty plow is highly advisable.
What you will also want to keep in mind is how much annual snow your area gets during the wintertime. It goes without saying that you should gauge the qualities of your plow based on the amount of snowfall that you get. If your region gets a massive amount of snow and you plan on using your ATV’s plow consistently throughout the season, we always recommend choosing one that can properly handle your loads. In this case, you should also ensure that your All-terrain Vehicle has the power to handle the snow in your area. Some riders have reported getting stuck in thick snow due to their ATV simply not having enough engine capacity.
In addition, you should also consider if you want your ATV snowplow to perform any other functions other than clearing snow in the winter. A lot of riders enjoy utilizing their snowplow throughout the entire year to take care of some of their laborious yard work duties such as clearing leaves, debris, and mud from their property. Many of these riders also use their plows to replace the need for a forklift by carrying heavy loads of materials from place to place. For these types of duties, we always recommend having an ATV that is powerful and equipped with a durable plow. Let’s dive right into the best snowplows for your ATV.
WARN 78950 ProVantage
If you are looking for an ATV snowplow manufacturer that you can trust, there are few names within the industry that get as much attention as WARN. For years, WARN has built a reputation as being one of the best manufacturers of ATV snowplows - with products that are tough, versatile, and capable of handling the plowing needs of any rider.
Their launch of the WARN 78950 ProVantage was a huge success and it rivals all of the top competitors in the industry. The WARN ProVantage is made with 12 gauge steel and has heavy-duty ribbing - so you know that you are getting a plow that is durable and made of quality material.
Many riders that have the WARN ProVantage equipped to their ATV have praised this plow for its longevity and dependability, as this is not a product that gets easily weathered or worn, which means that you can count on it for years. This plow comes with a straight blade so that it has excellent rigidity for the most adverse snow conditions. It also has incredible support due to WARN’s boxed design.
One of our favorite aspects of the WARN ProVantage is that this plow comes in different size varieties. A lot of ATV riders complain about their snowplow either being too small or too big for their general use, which results in plowing complications and inefficiencies. The ProVantage has four different options which are the 52, 54, 60, and 66-inch length blades that you can choose from.
If you have got a minimal or moderate amount of snow to plow during the winter and live on a smaller property, then the 52 and 54-inch options are going to be the way to go. On the other hand, if you have got a large property or are planning to use a plow for industrial sites and construction, a 60 to 66-inch ProVantage blade will get the job done much better. A larger blade option will also be much more suitable for riders who want to use their plow as a forklift, given that you will have the extra space to handle bigger loads.
In addition, you will find that WARN has some great price options for their ProVantage plows - with a 52-inch option that starts at just $240. The prices for each plow increase as they go up in size, which makes the ProVantage an excellent choice for riders that want to get a quality ATV snowplow at a great price. The only downside of the ProVantage blades from WARN is that they have got quite a bit of weight to them, which is why you should ensure that you have a relatively powerful ATV to support the plow.
Extreme Max 5500.5010 UniPlow
The Extreme Max 5500.5010 UniPlow is one of the hottest snowplows for ATVs on the market for clearing out snowy driveways and sidewalks. This 50-inch plow was designed for lighter duty plowing, which makes it perfect for riders who want to use their quad for basic residential snow clearing. With that being said, while Extreme Max did design this snowplow to be used for lighter duties, that is not to say that it lacks durability, as this plow features a bolt-together design.
Unlike most other plows that you see on the market, the Extreme Max UniPlow has its frame behind the wheels. This clever design from Extreme Max optimizes the force of the plow for precision so that you can make smooth calculated maneuvers when plowing snow with your quad.
You will find that the Extreme Max UniPlow has a sleek black finish with a very durable powdered coat. This will ensure that the plow does not rust easily or become corroded - just make sure to keep an eye on the coat and watch for any scrapes or scratches that need patching up.
If you have had your heart set on an ATV snowplow in the past and were disappointed when you found out that it was not compatible with your quad, you are in luck. The Extreme Max UniPlow is equipped with a universal mount that was designed to fit just about any ATV that you can find on the market, but you should always double-check their compatibility list to confirm your quad is a match.
All of the mounting hardware that you need for the Extreme Max UniPlow will be included in your purchase and the welded push tube design makes installing this snowplow onto your ATV a breeze.
While this snowplow is perfect for taking care of snowy driveways and sidewalks, one of its downsides is that the 50-inch length blade does not always satisfy the needs of riders who have huge amounts of snow to plow. In addition, the cost of the Extreme Max UniPlow is currently $489, which can make this a less budget-friendly option than the WARN 78950 ProVantage. However, if you have the cash to dish out on a quality snowplow for your ATV, the UniPlow from Extreme Max has got you covered.
Black Boar ATV Snowplow
There are few options for ATV snowplows out there that have the versatility and practicality of the Black Boar ATV Snowplow. This manufacturer has created an amazing snowplow that is perfect for private residences and even small farms.
The design of Black Boar’s ATV Snowplow features parallel linkage, which gives you precision when raising or lowering your plow - enabling you to target snow and debris regardless of the angle.
Something that many riders are unsatisfied with while using their ATV to plow snow is having to make tedious manual adjustments to reach their desired level. Black Boar listened to their customers and created a system with quick release pins for their snowplow, which enables riders to make these adjustments with ease - as you have 9 different positions to choose from when plowing.
The Black Boar ATV Snowplow has a black-powdered coat, which means that rust and corrosion damage can be avoided for years - provided that you do not abuse your plow too much. Once you are in motion, you can conveniently change the direction of the plow from right to left.
The blade of Black Boar’s ATV Snowplow is made out of durable steel and has a sleek design. The size of this blade is just 48 inches in length, which is perfect for taking care of moderate amounts of snow and debris. The smaller size of Black Boar’s plow compared to other ATV snowplows makes their product especially great for storage during the off-season months. However, this can be a downside for riders who need the extra size to meet their plowing needs.
This snowplow is great for even budget consumers, as it is currently listed for less than $350. With that being said, the plow does not come with its own winch, which means that you will have to buy one separately if you do not already own one. Black Boar’s ATV Snowplow is also compatible with the majority of modern-day quads on the market.
KFI Products 105060 Pro-S Silver
KFI Products have delivered another crowd favorite ATV snowplow with the release of the 105060 Pro-S Silver. This ATV snowplow is made out of steel and is the perfect solution to a snowy driveway or even a debris-filled industrial work environment.
The Pro-S Silver from KFI Products features a straight blade and will push snow to its sides up to 25 degrees - with gussets that will give you some additional width. The blade is extremely easy to adjust and has bolt-on brackets.
The 11ga steel that Pro-S Silver is made out of is tough as nails and will plow through just about anything that you put in front of it. In addition, KFI Products go the extra mile with this plow by ensuring durability for years with their metal bead design.
Most ATV snowplows that we see today are covered with a powdered coating, which gives them longevity by increasing their durability. However, KFI Products first blast their snowplow with metal beads before adding the final coating to give it extra durability, which is a feature that no other plow manufacturer implements.
The Pro-S Silver is equipped with a Grade 50 Steel Ware Bar that is attached with heavy-duty bolts so you know the materials are solid and built to last. This plow’s blade skids are also completely adjustable with bolt-on brackets.
One of the drawbacks of many ATV snowplows is that the product information meets all of your desired specs but the plow ends up being too large or too small for your intended use. KFI Products are ahead of the curve when it comes to designing their products for every type of customer, which is why they have released the Pro-S Silver in 5 different sizes.
You can currently pick up a Pro-S Silver Snowplow in sizes that range in 48, 54, 60, 66, and 72-inch length options - making it one of the most versatile ATV plows on the market. This snowplow is great for quad owners that need to tend to casual residential snow clearance and also for large industrial sites that have an abundance of snow and debris to tend to. KFI Product’s snowplow is also available for some of the most competitive prices on the market - with the Pro-S Silver starting at just $220 for the 48-inch size and less than $400 for the 72-inch plow.
In addition, the Pro-S Silver plow is designed to be used for both ATVs and UTVs. So, if you are a rider of both types of vehicles, you will find that the versatility of this product may be the answer to all of your plowing needs.
