    250ES Plow Modifcation

    I have been using my 225DR to plow for the past few years now. I made a custom plow that lifts and lowers by a winch on the front rack. Always worked fine. This past summer I got a great deal on a 250es and a plow with it. I have been using the ES for plowing this year. I hated running a winch on the DR. It was slow and drain batteries quickly. So the hand operated ES plow works fantastic for speed and no battery to drain. Biggest problem I see with the ES plow is with the plow in the up position youíre still plowing snow if itís more than 2 inches. Which is every snowfall we get in Minnesota. It would work fine if you only get a half inch of snow but when we get 8 inches no matter what Iím pushing snow. I messed around with it slightly and got it to lift slightly higher but not enough. Has anyone ever modified one to lift higher. I donít want to use the winch method because the ES plow is substantially heavier and I cannot steer with the plow up. Any ideas or discussion would be great.

    Mine has a chain on the front mount and you can shorten the length of the chain to lift higher...just make sure it still lowers all the way to the ground.

    That’s as low as it can be, that’s the first thing I checked. It needs more of a redesign.
