Hi all,
I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I'm building my Brutus on the Polaris website and for some reason can't find the V plow anywhere as an add on. I'll be calling dealerships to find best option but want to have that list first.
Does anyone have the V plow? What kind of feedback do you have? Would you recommend it over their standard straight blade?
Thanks in advance!

I have the original Brutus "Snow Blade" pusher, it doesn't suck

Head to head:


I have not seen the Brutus V-Blade in anything but a rendering, would love to see an action video if you end up getting one. I've got the older joystick, so it'd be a hassle to upgrade my 2013 to work with the V-plow.

There are some minor deficiencies in the original "Snow Blade", though I am considering switching to a polymer cutting edge, there's a couple firms which will custom fabricate a strip of 0.75" UHMW Polyurethane, even drill the holes (need to measure and send the bolt pattern).

60" wide when angled... on a machine that's 64" wide.... I'm not sure who thought that was a good idea. It's barely adequate for going straight and totally inadequate when turning. I have a 78" blade on mine and it's just about right, a couple inches sticking out each side when angled. I certainly wouldn't want any narrower. Neither of the Polaris plows are wide enough IMO.

Bobcat has gone back to the Multi-Attachment X-Change (M.A.X.) System branding?

72" is the biggest plow Polaris sells for Brutus. Bobcat doesn't even show those for 36xx, only lists the original and V-blade options.

My original 69" plow does fine even fully angled; I admit a 78" would be nice just because it'd reduce the number of passes I need to make, I really should look into end wings.

I have had the V-plow on my Brutus for two winters. I have a drive way that is a little over a quarter mile long that is fairly steep. In our Wisconsin winters, I tend to get many larger drifts on the drive. The V-plow works perfectly to break up the center of the drive on the first pass and then to make two other passes to push the remaining snow to each side.

I am more than happy with the V-plow and am glad I went with it. I did have to switch our the standard joy stick for the newer joy stick with two rocker switches to independly control the two wings. The switch out was easy.

Here is a PDF copy of the Polaris V-Plow Joy Stick upgrade manual.

I installed it on my 2013 Brutus.

Worse part was drilling a hole in the firewall. Had to go through plastic to get to the metal to access the dash area.

I do also have the Polaris PDF V-Plow manual, but it is too large to upload on this site. I think the file is 25.5MB
