Well installed my blade today to see how it works. I've only had a winch on an old Kawasaki mule I had 5 years ago. So I don't have much experience with winches. Sloan Equipment installed a switch on the brush guard to operate the winch, is this normal, also it has the remote inside of vehicle. I know the outside switch works great in hooking up the blade. I chose the connection using the 2" receiver. I can install this blade in 10 minutes tops. My kubota with the boss vplow took me about 45 -60 minutes to install. Boss was too heavy to maneuver I guess for me.
At this time the blade left to right movement is manual, the hydraulic actuator is on order and supposedly will receive it by the middle of Nov.
With the Kubota X900 I left the blade on all winter, with this system I will just put it on when needed. This will be nice.
Just a mention about the 835M, I can't believe how nice the heater is in this Gator.
