The Ground Hog.Max is an A.T.V. disk plow that has revolutionized the way food plots and gardens are plowed and planted with the use of an ATV instead of expensive and large tractors! The uses of this plow is amazing in that it can be easily transported and deployed in the field without the need for special hauling and storage.
The GroundHog Max ATV/UTV Disc Plow makes preparing food plots a fun jo with only one person needed to operate it. If you do remote food plots a couple of times a year,this one is for you!
The Ground Hog Max mounts between the rear wheels and under the ATV/UTV’s rear-end. It works by Utilizing the weight of the vehicle (800 to 1200 lbs.) and driver’s (200 lbs). No need to add extra weight. Plow in oblong circles, figure 8’s or straight.
When in transport mode with the disks in the up position it allows you to drive it up on your truck, take it to your property, drive it off the truck, take the plow to the most remote area of your property where tractors cannot go (at the speed of an ATV)and by yourself!
This versatile disc plow is “user-friendly”, designed with lower cost and ease of use in mind, at an economical price.
The Good & the Bad
- It plows twice as fast (3-7 mph) and cuts better than the typical pull-behind plow.
- Simple Hook Up and removal
- User Friendly design for transport and use
- You can access more hard to get to areas than a tractor with implements and even an old school tow behind model plows
- Time to plow the area is obviously more than a tractor with implements. But after all we aren’t comparing the two. This is a review of the Ground Hag Max. For those who didn’t have a tractor and implements before the Ground Hog Max is a major league improvement over the old tow behind plows.
Who is the Ground Hog Max For?
The Ground Hog Max is designed for the deer hunter who wants a larger food plot without the use of hand tools, but doesn’t own or have access to a tractor, plows, trailer and truck for towing. It simply slides into an adjustable hitch that’s mounted to your ATV/ UTV. The Ground Hog Max also gives the option of reaching more remote, hard to get to areas that aren’t accessible with a tractor.
For years hunters have attempted to plow food plots with small, light weight pull behind design plows that have trouble breaking up hard soil and put excessive stress on the ATV/UTV. The Ground Hog Max is a plow designed to be attached to brackets mounted directly to the ATV/ UTV. The weight of the ATV/UTV and rider help push the plows into the soil and solve the problems of not having enough weight as well as excessive stress on the ATV/UTV ,
In addition to food plots the plow is used for landscaping, preparing and maintaining firebreaks and weed control, grooming horse arenas, dirt tracks, beaches on lakes, trails. If you need to till the ground the plow will do it. In many cases it can be used to replace a tractor especially for smaller jobs
The Ground Hog Max is quickly becoming the go to option for home owner sized gardens as well, and does a great job in hard ground in the 5 inch depth range.
My final opinion of the Ground Hog Max ATV/ UTV disk plow
At a very reasonable price point ($355.95)the Ground Hog Max has addressed the need for hunters and gardeners that want a dependable plow for smaller to midsize food plots and gardens. Previous ATV/UTV pull behind models were less than effective in harder soils and with a larger footprint and heavier weight presented issues with storage options. The Ground Hog Max is a smaller yet more robust option that easily stores in less than half the space needed for traditional ATV/ UTV plows.. Or you have the option of leaving it hooked up to the ATV/ UTV when in storage.
The Ground Hog Max has a warranty period of 90 days from date of purchase. And spare parts are available .
When using the Ground Hog Max you can plow 5-8 mph, according to how your food plot is laid out. Remember also that you can use reverse in those tight spots. What makes the GroundHog work so well is down pressure, it uses the weight of the ATV, 700-800 lbs. plus the weight of the rider 200-300lbs. This equals approximately 1,000 lbs. of down pressure on much less steel than a traditional style ATV disk.
A member of our hunting club purchased the first Ground Hog Max I saw and I was impressed with it. It’s a very rugged, tough and well built unit.
If you are looking for a well built, alternative to an ATV/UTV tow behind disk plow, the Ground Hog Max is right down your alley!
If you are ready for an alternative that rests between back breaking manual work and the expense of a tractor,plows, trailer, and towing vehicle
