I'm from Wisconsin. I bought a 1995 Polaris Sportsman 400 this fall. My son bought me a Superwinch 2000 for me for Christmas and I'd like to get it mounted. I have to admit I don't know squat about ATV's much less putting winches on them so I have some questions.
I've been looking for a front mounting plate for my machine and have been seeing a lot of receiver hitch (rear) mounts. Are there pros and cons to either of them? I don't plan on burying my machine, will most likely be using the winch on deer and firewood.
My machine is fluid-cooled and I've also heard that a front mount may impede the air flow. Is this a real problem or not?
If anyone could point me to the best place to order whatever it is I need I'd really appreciate it.
