Denali Plow Issue

It was a single piece of steel with a bend in it leaning back towards the buggy,.. The new one is a 90 degree L shape that is reinforced on the sides and keeps the winch hook up and away from the angle adjustment.. They shipped it to me for free in 2 days
.... Just noticed b767 posted pics of the new one

My winch cable looks like it is wearing fast from the weight of the plow. Think I may try to use a strap. Has anyone done this?

I have the Moto Alliance plow strap, but I haven't had to use my plow yet, so I'm still using my synthetic rope.

Do you use rope or cable? Do you have a roller fair lead or hawse style?

I have the rope and the hawse style. Will have to order the plow strap. Used it again this morning and it works well. Great buy!

Thanks for all the updates guys.

Two things:

1. We went to a plow roller kit this year. The strap as worked great and this is even a better option. You can see them here: https://motoalliance.com/Site.Store....etails&id=1274


2. We originally contracted with another offroad company on our first VIKING plow mounts because we didn't have the time to get it done last year. In the in-between time, we have made our own mounts and redesigned them. There are no issues. You can see the differences here:

Thanks again for the props. We do try to take care of our riders. We are tracking towards 4,000 DENALI's sold this year and appreciate all the support. Have a good rest of the holiday weekend!

I really like the idea of the roller. If it wasn't for the fact that I ordered (after I got the plow) the aluminum hawse and their plow strap (on their recommendation) I'd order that roller. But for now, I'm too strapped for cash (Christmas and all....). I'll see how the plow strap works this winter, and if something needs to be changed. Why couldn't they have come out with that roller first!!

I think the strap and diff fairlead is a great idea for plowing and all ...but. What the heck am i supposed to do when im stuck somewhere and all i have is a plow strap on my winch?? Thats the whole reason i just cant see puttin it on mine.. I use my winch in the woods alot and i need to plow. Therefore i stick with my cable

tm....fair enough on your comment. As I don't do a whole lot of local driving in the winter, most of the use will be for plowing. If I am going to go out (maybe every second weekend for a day) I figure I can swap the plow strap for my synthetic rope. It would only take about 5 minutes. I know what the plow did to my synthetic rope on my grizzly (and cable before the rope), so I figure I'll try the strap and see how it holds up. But, like I said, if I had seen that plow pulley, I would've went with that. For now, my cheapness just means I'll have to spend 5 minutes a couple of times a month and swap from rope to strap. And hey, who doesn't like to spend a little extra time with their Viking?
