"Swisher Universal ATV Mounting Kit, Model# 2646"
Used this snow plowing for ten years. Just now have to replace the mounting bracket. The Swisher plow blade is still in good shape. The mount is a little light weight. Could be a little stronger. But I guess out of the quad, the plow, or the mount I'm glad that it was the mount that broke. And I always pushed it pretty hard. So I give it 5 stars.

Solid once it's assembled. the only problem is with the leaf springs wanting to "scissor" no matter how much you tighten the brackets. Do yourself a favor and mount the bolts facing up on the leaf brackets. I also had to do it with the rear attach point because of the trailer hitch I had already installed. Once I had everything together, it seemed to mount and dismount from my atv easily.

Swisher Universal ATV Mounting Kit
This is a necessary component for mounting Swisher accessories. I purchased their ATV dump bucket. The bracket seems unnecessarily heavy. I think the required strength and rigidity could be obtained with aluminum or perforated steel while eliminating some of the weight. I have brush guards on my front axles which made installing the front mounts difficult. The bucket does mount easily to the bracket and operates well.

Late Delivery and Bad Instructions
Received product after late shipment from Northern Tool, but they did have the best price, expected within 10 business and it took 13. Product was as advertised, except instructions were very bad and had to figure out on my own how to install. If the instructions has been good, the installation would have taken no more than 30 minutes. But with bad instructions it took about 90 minutes. As for product quality and adaptability I was able to use this on a 250cc Suzuki 2 wheel drive ATV and adapt a snow plow I had from an old sears garden tractor.

This thing is great. There is very little front end bounce when lifting the snow blade. Used it all winter removing snow.

You can't go wrong with the mounting kit!
Product is made of very reliable materials and when mounted to your ATV is extemely strong and solid. Instructions to mount same are easily understood and all parts that are required for mounting are included. This will mount to almost any ATV and makes the plow more sturdy that you would expect. You can not go wrong with the Swisher ATV mount. Great Product!!!!!!!

Mounting Kit 2646
I have received the Swisher mounting kit for my ATV, the only problem is that I happen to need the extra modification kit because I have a Bombardier. I wish that I had been informed ahead of time regarding this extra mounting/modification kit because I have had to order it separately, and wait an extra couple of weeks to get to install and use the item. Make sure that when you are ordering this item, that you ask the operator if there are any extra parts needed.
Other than the missing extra parts, the mounting kit looks like it is going to be perfect. Well-built and no issues.

Swisher Universal ATV Mounting Kit
This is a pretty good univeral design that is fairly easy to install IF your ATV undercarriage will accept it. It has optional parts included to assist in attaching it to a wide range of ATVs. I was fortunate that it fit on mine (2007 Honda Rancher) with relative ease, although I did have to cut down both front leaf springs in the kit because they were about an inch too long for my undercarriage. Once installed, the kit is strong and durable and takes a pretty good beating. I have used it with both the blade and dump bucket attachments. One suggestions is to BE SURE that the rear fitting is firmly bolted to the rear of the ATV with a lock nuts or lock washers and even then be sure to check the security of the rear bolt often during heavy use. I have had the nut vibrate off the rear bolt twice and it is no fun to get back down the mountain with the mounting kit hanging loose under your ATV!
