Here’s the link to the Link (get it?)
The kit is pretty straight forward, as was the install. The directions left a lot to be desired, but what do you expect when it comes from China. Luckily, I wasn’t picky about the country of origin because this is a pretty sweet setup for under $30.
Install: first things first, open everything up and do a quick visual inventory (there is a count of everything, pictures with a numbered labeling system on the outer box/wrapping.
– find where it is you want to mount the reservoir/pump. Drill your first hole, mine was in the firewall under the pelican case holder as it offered the best protection and room. The provided mounting bolt and nut fit well for this area, it looks like it might come up short, but it’ll work. My top round bolt mount I incorporated into my ground wire anchor for my fuse block. More on that later.
– drill the second mounting bolt hole. You have some play here with this as the secondary bolt has a slot versus a hole. Space was really tight for me, and my Porter Cable compact cordless drill wouldn’t fit to drill the hole from the outside in. I ended up drilling from inside the footwear through the firewall approximately 1.5-2 inches from the top hole. Now tighten the reservoir holding bracket down.
– next, I would pre-wire your 2 pin push button and run the wires through the hole in the firewall that your main harness forward goes through. I used the wire that came with the kit, but opted for crimp connectors and shrink tape instead of provided electrical connectors. I didn’t think they’d stand up well for something that occasionally gets wet.
-Here’s where that negative power bolt connection to the the reservoir bracket comes in. I crimped a washer style connector with shrink tape to the negative wire going from the clip on pump power connector piece and fastened it down with the securing screw and nut on the side of the reservoir bracket after slipping the reservoir /pump into it. That bracket is now one large negative terminal. Clip in the power to the pump and give the button a quick push to test the connection. If you can hear the pump, it’s good to go.
– time to plumb it. Figure our where you want your nozzles. They do provide good pressure/ distance. Since I had the hood off along with pelican case/mount out, I drilled my holes for the nozzles just to the side of the hood lined up with the plastic cross piece behind the radiator. See picture. They give you a three way hose connector I made the hose on the passenger side shorter and put that connector towards that side since the port coming out the pump is on that side. Connect both nozzles to the 3-way and the pump nipple to the center port of the 3-way.
– fill with fluid and test your nozzle placement. I had to elevate my nozzles with spacers I made with layering electrical tape and trimming the edges. As is, the nozzles spray right at the top of the Ryfab windshield vent. Zip tie everything into place.
– place your bottom wherever you want. I’m planning in eventually getting a team alba 4 switch panel, so I mounted my red button in the area I’ll be cutting out for it.
Anyway, that’s it. Took about 30 minutes total to put in. Time to try it out tomorrow. Hoping for mud for a good test.

Top of reservoir, I used a tubed funnel yo fill it. Just take out the case and pop the lid. https://www.dropbox.com/s/mc93o4e4aj…04532.jpg?dl=0

Will post my review after my ride tomorrow. So far, the pressure is pretty strong. When adjusting the nozzles, I sprayed myself in the face. Not the smartest thing to do, but I know first hand how strong the pump is pushing.
In my opinion the Polaris Rzr 570 is not a medium duty plow, and should not be used as such.
Its also my opinion not to buy an Rzr 570 with plowing in mind, as I did.
Keep it on smooth surfaces with no rough ice or frozen snow build up.
Sheesh, I didn’t get far with this thing.
I do like this 570 for recreational purposes. But not plowing snow. My 550 X2 atv plowed circles around it.
Just sharing my experience. Go away snow.
Here is my bent mount. I’ll be lucky if they warranty this.
