Massimo 60" 420cc Electric Start UTV/ATV Snow Blower
Ratings & Reviews
Easy to assemble. The "universal" mounting plate does fit my Odes Dominator 800 LT but is not designed for it. The angle is too steep, I have to use a floor jack to hook it up. The angle makes the shoes too short, have to get taller ones made and/or try to extend the brackets on mounting plate. Control box wiring is a little short, used a 5 wire trailer plug in as an extention, makes locating and installing control box easier.
Mounting on a 14 ranger. Told them this when ordering. Did not get the right plate. Called and was sent right away. Some mounting documentation would be nice. Flashing light broke off on first use. Cheap plastic. Fuel and oil caps are hard to get at. A little under powered when in wet snow. A few small issues, better than plowing.
John Deere companion

I purchased this machine last spring,at a terrific price. I debated several months before I finally ordered. The unit came partly assembled, but was easy to put together.
<br> I mounted the machine on the front of my 1025r John Deere compact tractor, and cannot say how great it works. The tractor hydraulics lifts the unit for turns etc. without issue. I remove the bucket, and drive up to the machine, hook it up and am on the driveway.
<br> Like the other reviews I couldn't wait for snow and when it finally did, I was really impressed at the performance.
Can am defender with 60” massimo snow blower
So far only a few small problems with unit all fixed with a little work. Universal mount needed to be cut to work on Can am defender 2019 hd10 XT. For a-arm needed to cut all four corners off for clearance at only possible place to mount plate under can am also had to drill only one hole per side for the plate to mount this hole will be in the skid plate protecting your drive shaft not sure what’s all under the plate but there was plenty of room for the hole and it’s being covers by a much thicker plate. Three other small things thrower got stuck all the way to the left just need to reverse the cable to get it to work again have not had a problem since. Yellow cover for engine needs a redesign not able to check oil with it on nor can I get the gas cap off. So I’m just leaving it off. Last little thing snow comes out the back of the chute I’m just going to put a small piece of rubber were it comes out. Over all I like the unit I will post a video review on it probably on you tube.
Seems like a solid unit

Purchased for 2014 Polaris ranger xp900 customer service was great, they sent me the correct mounting plate for the Polaris after I talked to them and it bolted right up will update as soon as it snows but unit looks pretty solid.

Just ordered my 5' snow blower, it was super easy, I spoke with both Sales and Technical and both calls were answered right away. Excellent customer service.
<br>Can't wait to install it, first snow is on our peaks.
Check your chain before you use it.
by Antonio M
I used this machine for the second time last week. I am glad I checked everything because the chain was a bit loose and that would have been fun. After figuring out how adjust the chain tension we were good to go. You can't go really fast with this machine (basically idle at all all times) but since it is 60" wide it still makes quick work of my drive.
<br>Watch the belts and chain and you will be good.
Great unit, have used several times now and I am very impressed. Mounted on Artic Cat Prowler 650, had to drill one hole in bracket to make fit but was very straight forward. Will blow snow 20 to 30 feet. Beats trying to plow especially when you get a major dumping of snow.
Works great, excellent customer service!
The snow blower works great and the customer service I received in support of installation was tremendous. Pretty easy installation but there is a different mounting bracket for a Polaris XP 1000 that I had to order direct from Massimo. I would recommend this product!
Report from the greatest snow on earth
So I get over 240 inches of snow a year. I have to maintain a 1/4 mile of driveway.
<br>I bought this to mount to my Polaris XP900 Crew.
<br>The mounting issues are valid however I was able to get it to mount to factory holes on the frame. However I was only able to get 2 bolts in whereas I'd have really liked to get 4 in to really secure it.
<br>I have cleared 82 inches of snow so far with it.
<br>It works well (when it works more to come on that)
<br>I wish the motor was a 15 or 16 maybe even 17 horse. But I can love with it.
<br>When it works. I've had 2 major break downs with it. Both are Chain and Sprocket related. First issue is broke the fan shear pin. That was only a sign of something bigger inside being an issue. The top sprocket came loose, keyway missing and the chain came off.
<br>2nd issue exact same sequence of events. I think this is due to the chain not being tight enough. If I can get this fixed I will sing the praise of this machine.
by Me and me and me
So far I’ve use this to widen roads and driveways it cuts through compacted frozen snow pretty nicely. It even moved 60 inches wide over 2 feet deep of snow pretty nicely just have to move at a slow steady pace. I have it mounted to a 2007 RTV 900. It took some modifications to mount it but I’m confident. I replace the sway chains with turnbuckles to give it more of a tighter fit. I drilled and mounted eyebolts where I needed them for the sway bars And turnbuckles.
This thing is a beast!
by JBD NE
Unit is awesome. I added to Kaw Brute Force 750. I did have to cut/ modify mounting plate because of tire turning clearance. It could be because of over sized tires. Started first time with quick hand pull. I also took had to take apart the remote operator pendant to route cables up to handle bars. This units is as solid as stated. Only issue was tracking shipment. Tracking showed it was delivered half way across the country. Then mine showed up a tractor supply by house. Even so all people I dealt with were also great! I wanted to post pictures but kicked me out when I tried.
by Richard Barth
I'm very happy with my Massimo snowblower but wondering how do you tighten the chain
Good luck getting parts
Works okay, could use a little more power. Tried getting spare belts from the U.S. supplier SC Auto Sports by both phone and email and was completely ignored. Not sure what will happen if it breaks and I need parts to fix it.
Recently purchased this unit and so far I am very impressed with it. Installation was pretty straight forward, easy to use and will blow snow at least 30 ft. The only thing negative I can say at this time is the safety light should be mounted on a 12" riser and further back as I broke my mount on a snow bank. Easy fix. I also wish that they sold "drift cutters" which would help in deeper snow.
easy assembly and mounting on my 2017 Polaris Ranger XP Now waiting on first measurable snow
I'd give it 20 stars if I could!
by Yooper Jim
Honestly, I was apprehensive about purchasing after reading some reviews online about the mounting issues. Well, apparently Massimo heard and listened - as it came with a universal mounting kit. I mounted it to a Yanmar tractor - it mounted perfectly to the tractor with the addition of a winch - also purchased at Tractor Supply (since it was not being used with an UTV the winch was needed)... Mounting went very well and fairly quickly.
<br>As far as performance goes.... WOW. It has become a traffic stopper here in the U.P. when people drive by and see the snow being shot off the driveway with such ease. Many folks up here plow their entire yard early in the season, making room to put the future plowed snow that will come up to 3' at a time.
<br>The wide auger makes for 2 easy passes up the long drive, clearing an impressive 5 foot width and shooting it far from the cleared area - eliminating the need to ever have to push back a wall of plowed slow as snow builds up. This is extremely important to us, as our driveway is basically a 1 car width, and drops off in places - which would make moving plowed snow potentially dangerous with a tractor plow.
<br>Will chime back later after more use about its reliability, durability, etc. - but initially out of the gate - its performance definitely deserves 20 stars!
by bill northwoods
finally had 11 inches of snow in northern wis to try it out worked great. i mounded it on a polaris 500 using a front reese hitch for easy on and easy off. had to do a little motifing but works great. throws snow 20 feet. engine starts and runs great
No good mounting plate
The universal mounting plate did not fit my side by side Yamaha Viking. I called tech support and was told that is the wright one go on line and see the spec. I did not start doing this yesterday I had to cut it up and re weld it to make it fit tech support not very good. Have not got use it in the snow yet but looks to be all built, will update when it snows
Very happy with this solid snowblower from Massimo
by Dale M
Bought this snowblower last June when there was an incredible price offered. This fall started to set it up for my 2006 Yamaha Grizzly 660. Found out about the unversal mounting bracket that Massimo was offering for installation, contacted customer serice and visited with Eddie on the subject. He set me up with the bracket and an extention bar for under the frame for 660. Bracket fit perfect, needed a little modification for the extension bar and everything went together very nicely. Got it all hooked up and I cannot begin to tell you how completely satisfied I am. Sure beats plowing by a mile, throws snow literarily between 20 to 40 plus feet easily. Best part, no snow bank along my driveway.
Mounted on 2017 Polaris Ranger
by KodeBear -
I have this unit mounted on my 2017 Polaris Ranger. It is true the "universal " mount is less then ideal for the 2014 or newer Polaris. I was able to mount it behind the swing arms to 2 existing bolt holes in a plate on the Ranger. However I'd really like to see a mount that fits Polaris better whereas I could get 4 bolts in the plate. <br>I have now used the unit 2 times this year so far and the unit is awesome. at least in dry POW snow. <br>So far my only knock is the mount for Polaris kinda stinks, and the instillation instructions are kinda weak. Watch the video and read the manual and be mechanically incline and you'll get it on. <br>Also set your suspension as stiff as possible to get a good lift on the unit. <br>If it's not clear a Wench is required.
Mounted on Polaris Ranger 900XP crew
by Kodebearkc -
Bought and mounted this unit on my 2017 Polaris Ranger 900XP Crew.
<br>Mounting bracket was kinda hokey for my rig which would be true for any Polaris 2014 or newer. You can not use the U bolts that came with the unit. I had to use some Grade 8 straight bolts/nuts I had laying around.
<br>Make sure the bracket and arm fit before mounting. I had the bracket mounted and could not get the arm to fit in the bracket, I had to unmount the bracket and make sure the arm would fit. Come to find out I had wrenched the bracket down so tight it slightly deformed the bracket preventing the arm from matting properly. 2nd go round was smoother.
<br>I live where we get over 240 inches of snow (UT) so this thing will be put to the test. I will update this post or write another review after a few decent rounds.
<br>Would give 5 starts if instruction manual was better written/illustrated
Get machine so far but i havent got to use it in snow yet. ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.
Depends on what you are putting it on
Have not actually used plow yet but mounting plate does not fit Polaris side by sides, they are working on one that will fit, that's what we were told when we called, it looks to be a great snow blower and will update review as soon as I am able to use it, but having to rig the plate to fit our Polaris has been very difficult.
