    Gator Radiator Guard

    Dose anyone make a guard that would cover the winch opening a Gator.
    This time of year as weeds are drying out. Some become as hard & stiff as wood sticks.
    I have wondered for a while, if it was possible for these stiff weeds to puncture something on the Gator. Today & found out it is possible.
    Today I noticed what looked like a small tree branch sticking out of the winch opening on my Gator. It was one of those stiff weeds.
    The weed did not puncture the radiator, but it crushed a line of fins. It does not look as bad in the picture as it does in person. It starts deep at the bottom & then tapers out at the top.
    If it would have hit lower on the radiator, it might have gone through it.

    Wow that's a big opening, can see what you mean. I have a winch on mine so never realized how big the opening is. Sure can see where that would be a problem. I pull sticks and stuff from around my winch all the time. I would just fab up something.
    Thanks Bob
