Plowing/reverse shifting
« on: November 03, 2018, 08:28:41 AM »
So now that my plow is installed and I'm ready to plow this year on my 400s, I have to ask if everyone's opinion on the shifting experience is the same.
It's not overly difficult to shift from H to R, but it isn't totally simple either, and it is definitely not smooth. Is this by design, or is my shifting experience just tighter than most? It's not a show stopper by any means, but it was worth asking.

Also, when installing the cycle country mid mount, it's about 4 to 6 inches to far back in my opinion. It's not affecting the performance of the plow but I've never seen any other mount so tight.
Is this just a repercussion from using a universal mount?

As you can see in the link the plow blade itself is old and I need a new one. Not bad for a free plow, mount and push tube though.

Currently it's a 48" blade but I've always used 52"-54" in the past. Is 60" too much for this machine? I've got a couple weeks before I have to order a new one so I figured I'd get some input.


Here's the one I'm looking at:

i think the shifting is preatty moyth on my 520/500s o long you dont put load on rhe gearbox for example going upp a hilk in low and stop in the hill and rol down yout i tiny bit and put load in the gerabox.   Try to adjust the gear selector. if you remov the left side you can se the gear selector rod and you can test adjust the lenght a bit and se if it helps

Thanks, I think I've got it as good as I am going to get it to shift, and to be fair, its not bad, it's just not as smooth as others.

If anyone has any suggestions when it comes to plow blade sizes, mounting issues, etc, I'm all ears.

Thanks

Just plowed the drive this morning and it overheated again with the smell of antifreeze in the air. Didnt hear the fan either. I need to do some tests when I get some time.
Frustrating.

You can pull the plug for the thermoswitch and jump it, if the fan comes on the thermoswitch is likely junk, known issue with CFmoto. I bought 3 when I bought mine, only had to replace it once so far tho
