Q: How do the push arms connect to the bottom plate?
Over 3 years ago
I understand how the flat plate mounts to the bottom of my atv. The flat plate has two small half round mounts with holes in it on both sides of the plate. Then the plow and the arms connect to those small half rounds that are attached to the plate. What connects the two pieces together? I assume there is some sort of pin or something. However, if they connect with a pin on each side, isn't all the pushing force put right on those pins? I'm kind of a slow learner. :) It looks good but it seems like there should be something more sturdy for the plow arms to push against. I hope that even make sense. Thanks.
A: The push tube does mount to the frame mount with pins. This design has proven to be incredibly durable and easy to use. In addition, there does need to be a weak point incase the plow does snag on something. The pins are easier and cheaper to replace than a bent push tube assembly.
