I have an older Cat plow blade and push tube from 2005 that still works perfectly. Eventually I'd like to mount it on the 2017 Alterra XT 700. Right now its on the 2014 1000 XT. Has anybody mounted one? The plow needs the mid mount, not the front bumper style. This is the push frame:https://www.countrycat.com/arctic-cat-0436-636-standard-snow-plow-push-tube-frame-2005-2017-models
This is the mount kit:https://www.countrycat.com/arctic-cat-2436-170-standard-snow-plow-mount-bracket-2015-2017-xr-alterra_1

Are the holes predrilled in the frame? Does the plastic skid ( belly panel) have to be altered? or removed? I changed the oil yesterday and I always remove the entire plastic skid to keep the dripping oil from making a mess. I couldn't get any of the torx screws/bolts to loosen up without stripping the heads. So if I have to remove the skid frame, its going to be a big job.

The plastic skid plate is marked with drilling locations. you don't have to remove it, just drill through it.
the directions:

When drilling through the skid plate, be sure to only drill through the skid plate as damage to the engine or other components may occur

1. Locate the two drilling locations (indicated by the drilling/cutting lines) on the skid plate at the mid section of the frame (just below the front engine mounts) and use them as a guide for drilling the skid
plate using a 11 mm or 27/64-in. drill bit. See Fig. 1.

NOTE: The mounting locations are pre-drilled in
the frame of the vehicle.

2. Secure Plow Plate to the frame using two Cap Screws and two Nyloc Nuts in the mounting locations from step 1. See Fig. 2.

3. Using the two remaining holes in the plow plate as a guide, drill the remaining two mounting locations through the skid plate using a 11 mm or 27/64-in.drill bit. See Fig. 3.

4. Secure the plow plate to the frame using two cap screws and nyloc nuts. Tighten securely. See Fig. 4.

Thanks Krom, I'll take a look later today. I did see that the plow will be mounted a few inches forward compared to the older body style and they sell a bracket to relocate the cable attachment point.

Would you happen to know the part number for a new cutting edge on my plow? I can flip it over for now and get a few more seasons out of it. but i plan on keeping this plow, its been perfect.

Take off the 2 torx bolts in the grille, the 2 torx bolts with large heads on the bottom or front of the plastic skid panel and the 2 large bolt on each side. There are also 2 torx bolts that hold the winch cover on that need to be removed for your fairlead mounting spot.
Pull the front fascia forward and place a small piece of wood inside to hold it out. You should see 4 holes for the winch mounting location and enough room to slip your hand under the fascia to mount the winch. I'll try to get some pictures as well.
