1st UTV

Just got a 2007 Rhino 450 (YXR45FW) from a friend who used to travel right of ways on pipeline construction projects. Traded it for doing his website! Gonna use it mostly around my 3 acres and fit it with a plow in the Winter, Looks to be in great shape and already got a 2.5k Warn winch, Aluminum top, 1/2 doors and 1/2 windshield. Gonna get some upgrades, but first the plow. Since I'm 72 y/o I was wondering if anyone has gotten an add on hydraulic blade turner. I've already replaced the wire on the Warn winch with synthetic rope. Best plow mounting frame? I've already got a new blade (WARN 78950 ProVantage 50" Straight Plow Blade) mounted on my 35 year old TroyBilt tractor.


Looks like a wealth of info here!

What do you mean by "slugging the clutch"?

Before and after of slugging the clutch. The 6 gold inserts add more weight to the clutch so when you accelerate it catches faster and stronger. Which would be good for your low end when pushing a pole around.

Thanks so much for the "Slug" info. Will do in the spring when I've got more time. One winter should be doable.


Wondering what the best mount/push tube/plow options are for my 2007 450 Rhino. Any thoughts?
