I am having a tough time trying to control my 570 midsize in slushy conditions as the front wont lock up until the rear tires spin and the rear diff. is locked up so machine doesn't want to steer,like pushing a wagon down the road.anybody have these issues?

it's almost dangeress as the back end always wants to go to the lowest side, polaris needs a separate diff lock and a system that locks the front end up when the operator wants it ,not when the machine wants it.it will climb a brick wall if going straight when all four wheels are locked up

my 570 Crew doesn't do this entirely. I plow snow with an angled blade up and down hill, and I've noticed a slight movement when I hit something heavy with the blade, but nothing like you are describing. Now, I start off with the machine in diff lock and I feel a little vibration when the lockup occurs, but it is nearly instant with just the slightest of pull to the angled side before it straightens up.

mine plows great too but when out on packed trails that turn soft the machine bogs down and there isn't much steering control as the back wheels are locked and are trying to push machine around,if the front tires were pulling I could probably control it better.

I've only had mine out once in snow melt mud without the snow plow and it did wallow a bit, but I was able to stay on top instead of riding in the ruts. I've only had mine for just under two weeks, so not a lot of experience in mud since everything here is mostly frozen.

Get rid of stock tires will help some.

About 250 lbs in the box helps. Add chains to the rear and you don't even need 4 wheel drive unless your in the steep and deep. I hated the way the rear wanted to walk around at speed.

I just got the 26" Buzz Saws and they have improved riding in sloppy mud. No snow yet to test them in yet. Sometimes just locked in the 2 wheel drive is better that 4x4 mode.
