Got my 2017 CFMoto CForce 500 eps from Rocky Mountain Cycle Plaza (Great People all around) just a few weeks ago but have only had the chance to ride it in my own yard using my Swisher Loader and under carriage to help clear some debris.    Each and every piece of this equation has worked flawlessly.  I am amazed at the power of the CFMoto and the amount the loader / winch can repeatedly lift and carry over and over.  Tim in RMCP parts helped me acquire the Swisher at a fair price and I did the installation myself.  It is a handful for one person and the install took a little fabrication on my part, but Swisher said "treat it like an Arctic Cat" .    However, there is no mention of an Arctic Cat in my few directions at all.  But it is on and works like a little Bobcat.

Good to know you are all here.

Interesting!  How much weight do you figure it can handle?

Interesting design. Never saw one apply it's weight to the outer-lower a-arms like that. One would think because it's not transferring weight through the shocks but directly to the tire, it would hold it's level very well...maybe even lift it a bit. It would be great to see it in action :)

It is interesting to see.  There is a shaft that runs all the way from about the front wheels all the way back to the factory 2 X 2 hitch underneath.  Here it bolts vertically with spacers to the ball holder so all the weight is distributed to the length of the ATV.     No idea of its capacity for either the bucket or ATV. but the arched leaf spring does take the majority of the weight as there is very little squat at all.
The rock pile shown is what I am moving and I just bought a property with lots of these piles (who knows what for).  I keep expecting to find a body in one of them like on CSI.  But, it can and does fill the bucket and carry it for nearly an acre before dumping, over and over.

Nice design. I once has a SnowBear snow plow that had a beam like that that went all the way to the hitch. There is no stronger point for forward impacts then to transfer it to the ball hitch so...great design.
