2016 Honda Pioneer 1000

I'm looking to get a winch and snow plow installed on my 1000. Can anyone make any recommendations on winch make/model and plow make/model?

I have the honda setup (KFI) I went with the 72" composite plow because it's light, and if you don't abuse it, may virtually last forever. Also the KFI Stealth 4500 lb winch with the rope.

I plowed once this year so far with it 9" of snow, no problem. I leave the feet on the plow with just 1 small shim so the cutting edge doesn't touch the ground. Feet are much easier and cheaper to replace than a cutting edge is. The residual skim coating of snow will melt, or is at least easy to drive on.

Sorry for crappy cell phone pics at night, all I have for now.

The only gripe I have is that I wish I had the ability to angle the plow left and right from inside the cab. You can angle this manually. There is a plow out there with hydraulic pistons, but it costs thousands of dollars and isn't worth the price difference in my opinion unless you are using this machine to make money with.

Cyber Monday I bought a 72" denali plow kit and a 4500# viper winch w synthetic rope. Got to try it out 2 weeks later with 18" of snow and it worked like a dream! Had it all put together and installed in about 3 hours and it all couldnt have worked better! The 72" cut down to the ashpault, and is wide enough to cut you tire tracks out. I dont believe the 66" would do that with a 1000 pioneer. It is a breeze to mount and unmount with 2 pins and the winch cable and I was able to stack snow as high as the roll bar with the standard length pushtubes. The plow mount bolted on quick and easy with 6 bolts that were lined up perfect for the pioneers skid plate and using the 2 bottom bumper bolts. It doesnt hang any lower than the skid plate so as not to lose ground clearance with the blade off. The winch mount was just as easy with 4 bolts to the frame and everything color coded. It was all a breeze. If your interested I can give you the guys info for a great deal!

I can get you a great deal on a winch and winch mount, but we're out of stock on the snow plows at the moment. Hit me up if you're interested and I'll shoot you the forum discount.

I read somewhere that you needed a second battery if you used a wench, is this true?

It's not needed but if your using the winch a lot it wont hurt anything. When plowing snow the stock battery can get weak if your using lights and other accessories.
