We are in the process of adding a 6ft plow to our 800 6x6 Polaris big boss. This will mainly be used with pods (you might call tracks) and resided within the lake S snow belt, so yes, it will get used. If anyone cares to see this process happen, just let me know and I'd post details and photos.

I've got the plow for the Polaris boss 6x6 patched together and in the test mode. Below is a few photos. I had to customize the belly plate to make it work. Plus build the entire push frame since none are available for a 6x6 with pods on it. The plow was a used moose I picked up that's 6ft wide.

The views of the push frame were taken before done so it got reinforced much after these shots were taken.

Here is photos of the cable lift system which I plan to change to flat belting in the future. In the 2nd one, you can see how 1x3/8 flats were welded to the bottom push/pivot plate and the rest of the push frame was reinforced. The Moose frame was bent, broke and trashed! So I'm trying to beef it up compared to how they did it.
Sorry about all the snow in the photos.

Good Morning Arlyn. That's a large blade. With the pods on your 6x6 that must be a real snow pushing machine.

Over the weekend I was pushing snow in the yard because we thought we might need the trailer. I've got more work to do with this setup but the pods will take the machine and snow its pushing right up snow piles. These photo were taken at dust and most are live so much blurring occurred.

Seems you characters have interest in this goofy project so I'll keep posting updates. :) Looks like I'll be in the metal shop just after Christmas to fix/build items for this. The lift cable will be replaced with a flat, poly, tow strap so the snatch block sheave setup will need to be refitted for that. I'm also adding a super bright green strobe beacon plus 2 LED lights facing rear and forward. Thank you for all your kind comments!
