Today, we're going over the installation of the Tusk SubZero Plow Mount on the Honda Rancher.

It's important to have the correct hardware and some assistance to ensure smooth installation. For this video, we've stood the machine on-end so you can better see and understand the installation process. You need to safely support your machine in order to gain access to the undercarriage for installation.

On the Rancher 350, the skid plate's integrated into the frame, so we won't need to remove anything to install the plow mount. Please note that if you're installing the plow mount on the Rancher 400, it will require removal of the stock plastic skid plate, which we'll cover later in this video. You'll notice with your hardware kit, you received 2 different clamps: One set of U-clamps and one set of straight clamps. The U-clamps are going to be the front clamps and the straight clamps are going to support the rear of the plow mount. We're going to go ahead and put those front U-clamps in place. The rear straight clamps sit on top of the stock skid plate, as shown in the video.

Now is a great time to grab an extra set of hands. Have your buddy hold the plow mount up into place while you get a few thread started on each of the bolts. For the rear straight clamps, the bolt's going to go through the flat washer, through the plow mount plate, through the stock skid plate, and into the straight clamp. Once you have a few threads on each of the bolt started, make sure the plow mount is sitting straight on the frame rails and we can go ahead and tighten down the bolts. Make sure you're tightening the bolts evenly so it holds the clamp straight towards the plow mount. When tightening the rear mount, notice that it's designed to spin until it hits the frame rail, which is going to hold it there and stop it so you can further tighten down the bolt.

Once you get that tight, double-check your work. Make sure everything is tightened evenly. You're done with installation.

Now we're going to go over the installation of the plow mount on the Rancher 400, which is just slightly different from their 350.

We're just taking off that stock plastic skid plate, which is the 4 bolts that hold that on. Once you get that stock plastic skid plate out of the way, we're going to go ahead and set the upper clamps under the frame rails. Notice it's the same exact place as they were on the 350. Then the lower straight clamps are going to sit in the same general location as on the 350; they're just going to use different holes on this machine.

Now is a great time to grab an extra set of hands. Have your buddy hold the plow mount up into place while you get a few threads started on each of the bolts. Notice that on the plow mount, there's 2 sets of lower holes. On the Rancher 400, we're going to be using the forward-most set of holes. The bolt's going to go through the flat washer, the plow mount, the stock skid plate, and into the clamp. Once you get a few threads started on each of the bolts, make sure the plow mount is sitting straight on the frame rails, and we can go ahead and tighten down the bolts. Make sure that you're tightening the bolts evenly so that it's pulling the clamps straight towards the plow mount.

Once you get those tight, we're done with installation. Thanks for watching. Enjoy your Tusk SubZero snowplow.
