Anyone got a snowplow on 2011-2014 Rzr 900?

Im trying to find some pictures of how the mounts/brackets are tied into the frame of one of these. Ive searched all over hell and can find pictures of a few different mounts not installed but nothing of once they are installed on the machine.

The reason im asking is because i picked up a atv plow and push bars for pretty cheap and would like to fab up some mounts and be able to use it. Ive poked around the front and the underside between the front control arms of my machine(2012 900xp) and dont really see a good place to mount this thing off of that i would trust to be able to take the abuse i see happening with this plow.

A plow on a razor is good for about 2" of light snow, more than that it's worthless. And that is if you are on flat ground. I would not waste the time of mounting it. I have a neighbor that put a plow on his 900 and it lasted 1 day before he ripped it off trying to plow 6". They are simply too light and too powerful to push snow. Any resistance on the plow and you just end up spinning the tires. You end up getting speed and ramming the pile which is going to break something.

The side by sides with a bed work much better because they can be loaded up with weight and chains and seem to be geared lower for work not play.

We only ever get a few inches of snow at a time here so that should be perfect.

Yes, so far this year about 8 feet at my place and 35 feet about 10 min up the hill from my place at Mt Rose ski area. The Reno/Tahoe area has the biggest concentration of ski resorts in the US. Maybe you need to study your geography a bit. Oh ya, we are an 8 hour drive North from Las Vegas.
