Yamaha (Tric) Plow and Camoplast Track System

Hey everyone! Just joined this group today. I have a 2009 stock Rhino 700. I've had a Moose plow on it for a few years but just recently switched to the front attaching Yamaha (Tric) plow system. The Moose system used push tubes that connected under the Rhino via U-bolts and a connection plate. It was very cumbersome to connect/disconnect each season and the mounting plate hung too low thus causing clearance issues on the trail. Enough about that.......now that I just has the new Yamaha plow installed last weekend I am considering getting the Camoplast 4S Tatoe tracks put on. I am wondering if they will go on with the plow attached. I am told that I will not be able to angle the plow with them installed but I don't care as I don't angle the blade anyway. Just wondering if anyone out there has the same equipment and what are their stories and/or thoughts.

Thanks folks,
Rob

Hi, I have the same plow on with tracks. While I like that it easy to put on/take off, I find that it does not plow all that well. The plow does not lay even to the ground, and it angles downwards which creates some problems.

Do you notice the same thing? Did you find a solution to this?

I don't actually have the tracks yet, that is why I was asking. But I wonder if it is because you machine is now higher thus putting the Plow at a greater angle. I believe that someone said that there is an adjustment for that but not sure as I just had my new plow installed recently and waiting to find out from someone if the Tric (Yamaha) plow interferes with the Camoplast blade in any way.

Rob, you got it. The tracks make the bike higher, and thus changes the pitch. I have not been able to find an adjustment. The tracks also prevent changing the angle of the plow.

Let me know if you figure it out once you have your tracks installed.

Can you post pics of your plow on your Rhino with the tracks? I may be able to give some suggestions like possibly adding some spacer blocks to the plow mount on the front of your Rhino to change the pitch of the mount downwards to make up for the Tracks, that would be my first though.

This is where one of the things my local dealer quickly failed on, was trying to tell me this type of plow mount didn't exist for a Rhino. Anyhow, if you can post some pictures that would possibly help my brainstorming ideas.

I had the stupid plow system with the push tubes that went under the belly of the Rhino you had to crawl around and wrestle with the plow for a good half hour to get the stupid thing hooked up, by then I could care less about removing the snow LOL. Not to mention I had the multi-mount winch system, which created a whole new set of issues, and I had to make my own mount modifications for winch attachment as I was snapping the winch cable off every-time I lifted the plow.

Anyhow, I'd try pulling that mount off and adding some washers or even some bar steel stock and try and space the mount at an angle. Probably have to put longer bolts in it but you may have to play around with different amounts of spacing to get that thing to sit at the right angle.

How much lift does that set of tracks make the Rhino sit higher than stock?

Plowing with tracks

I run a KFI plow system on. My rhino......using it with tracks KFI offer an extension to the push rod which extend the plow attachment another 12 " .
This then permits the tracks to turn without coming into contact with the plow.
Not all plow companies offer the extension ($75.00) Can, if not you then may have to purchase a longer push bar system....

Hope that helps,,,,,,,

Thanks for the info and all the help.

I ended up drilling a couple holes and running a couple bolts.

The blades is now fixed and can't angle it. So far so good! No more blade touching the tracks.

Blade angle

Good!!!!!!
Keep in mind the extension ........this lets u swing the blade without coming in contact with the track during turning.
Check with the manufacture, they may supply the extension.....
Happy Plowing.......
