Detail K2 Avalanche Plow Length

The Detail K2 Avalanche snowplow conveniently slides into your vehicle's front-mounted trailer hitch for fast, simple mounting. Easily raise and lower the plow from the comfort of your cab with the remote-controlled electric winch. The pivoting blade makes this plow ideal for rocky or uneven surfaces because it can adjust to the terrain.

Simple, Hitch-Mounted Installation

This hitch-mounted snowplow simply slides into your vehicle's front trailer hitch receiver, making it a breeze to install. A plow that attaches to custom-fit brackets ties you down to just 1 vehicle. But this hitch-mounted plow can be used on most trucks or SUVs with a 2" x 2" front-mounted hitch. As a result, this plow can be easily switched between multiple vehicles. And because it offers a nearly universal fit, you won't have to buy a new plow when you replace your old vehicle.

Detail K2 Avalanche Hitch Mount

To install the Avalanche snowplow, just slide the shank of the plow assembly into your 2" trailer hitch receiver (sold separately). Then use a pin and clip or a hitch lock (sold separately) to secure the plow in the receiver.

Detail K2 Avalanche Caster Wheel

The Avalanche snowplow comes with flip-down caster wheels that make the installation process even easier on you. Simply flip the wheels into position and you will be able to roll the plow into position for mounting or storage. The height of the wheels can also be adjusted to match the height of your vehicle.

How to Plow

Detail K2 Avalanche Adjustable Plow Position

Once the plow is mounted on your vehicle, lower the blade and set it to the desired angle. To set the angle, exit the vehicle and manually position the plow straight ahead, to the left, or to the right. Angling the blade allows you to push snow off to the side where you want it without having to change the angle of your entire vehicle. This is especially useful on a driveway or a private roadway where piling the snow straight ahead would create a barrier.

Detail K2 Avalanche Wireless Remote 2.4Ghz

The Avalanche comes with a wireless remote that allows you to stay warm and out of the elements while still effectively controlling the plow. The remote operates on a 2.4 GHz frequency, allowing it to quickly send signals to the winch without experiencing delays. And because it's wireless, you won't have to run wires through your dash. Nor will you have to leave your window cracked open in the middle of a snow storm just so that you can run a wired remote into your cab. You will be glad to have it on those cold winter days.

To begin plowing, just drive forward. When backing up to take another pass, be sure to lift the plow with the remote, then lower it again before moving forward. When approaching a large pile of snow, be sure to decrease your speed. Slamming into a pile of snow can void the warranty on the Avalanche snowplow.

When you are finished, put your vehicle in park and lower the plow. Remove the plow from your vehicle after every use.

Easy Lifting with Electric Winch

Detail K2 Avalanche Electric Winch

The electric winch on this plow allows you to easily lift and lower the blade using the wireless remote control. If you prefer, you can also install the included in-cab toggle switch to control the plow. The winch uses a durable strap, which is much quieter than a chain, to raise and lower the plow.

Detail K2 Avalanche Features

Detail K2 Avalanche Skid Shoes

The Avalanche snowplow features skid shoes that allow you to adjust the height of your plow. This allows you to efficiently plow over surfaces that are uneven, such as gravel roads.

Detail K2 Avalanche Blade Stiffener

Blade stiffeners, or blade support brackets, reinforce the connection between the plow and your vehicle. They add 2 additional points of contact with your hitch on either side of the plow's T-frame. This prevents stress on the frame and on your vehicle, while also strengthening the performance of the plow.

Detail K2 Avalanche Trip Springs

Shock-absorbing springs allow the plow to dip forward in the event that you hit an obstruction. This flexibility protects you and your vehicle from impacts.

As always, delivery was quick. Hitch was easy to install and works nice. We do a lot of camping and since very few of the travel trailer manufacturers recommend a trailer hitch (some will tell you it voids your warranty), we can carry our bikes up front with this hitch. 367171

The hitch is well designed to fit the pick-up perfectly, and because it ties directly to frame rails it is really solid once bolted in place. Installation instructions were spot on! I use it for carrying my 1970 honda trail bike on the front of my truck, but can imagine other uses since it is as solid as it is! Nice product, 862023

Very well made and good instructions. Next time I'll read them before starting the job. Ended up being a four hour job and having to buy wrenches that I'll probably never use again. Should have had some mechanic do it for me but that goes against the grain. Really wish it was higher off the ground. Afraid it may hit parking bumpers? And just a day after I installed this on RV Travel had a video about a new product from Torque lift that comes out higher above the bumper. 802552

Fit perfectly on my 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD. Easy to install, I did it by myself except for my daughter putting in the first bolt while I held it up. I will use it for a removable winch mount. One thing I didn't like is that you have to cut out a piece of the lower air dam where the recover comes out. This could hurt resale value. 734084

Installed this hitch this morning 10/06/19. Was going to wait for help as arthritis in hands makes turn wrenches a chore but was bored so went ahead anyhow. This is my second front hitch install , first one on 2018 F-150. Today’s install on 2014 duramax 2500. Today’s install was super simple , used floor jack to hold hitch up in position, you need to remove four bolts on each side , I did try air tools on the 21mm bolts but not powerful enough so used small piece of copper pipe over wrench handle for leverage to loosen, air tools were able to loosen the six 18mm bolts , took me about an hour and a half by myself. The fit of the hitch was absolutely perfect! Had to cut a small piece of the air dam at bottom of bumper, used a hacksaw, very easy. The quality and coating on the hitch is top notch. 714235

very sturdy product; installation was straight forward exactly as instructions indicated. I had planned to haul motorcycle on this front mount hitch with a carrier meant for a rear receive hitch. While i have not done so yet (lighting issues i need to resolve), this receiver will do the job. I also plan on picking up a receiver mount for a winch which could come in handy. Shipping was fast from etrailer. Overall great product and great service! I got just what I expected from the description. 545400

C31023 fit perfectly with just minor modifications, cutting a little piece out of the valance, instructions thorough. I have a bull bar mounted on the front and this hitch still fit perfectly, just unbolted bar, dropping down about an inch and putting the rack against the frame then the bar bolted back fine because the side holes were already slotted, great price also, 2012 GMC crew cab, 8” lift with 37’s, gives me a little more storage for my camping trips, golf cart takes up the bed space and the camper rack takes the bicycles. Will submit pictures when I have a chance 523643

I installed the hitch on my 2011 HD2500 Silverado and it functions as expected. The installation itself was simple. I had to cut out a small area of the valance/air dam so the hitch would clear. I had no trouble torquing the hardware to specs. The installation looks good and like it is intended to be there. I have used Curt hitches previously and this product is to place my boat in a closed in area in my backyard. 496654

  • Comparing the Detail K2 Avalanche and Detail K2 Rampage II Snowplows for a Dodge Dakota
  • For a 2000-2004 Dodge Dakota 4x4, I recommend the Detail K2 Avalanche Snowplow part # K2AVAL8422 with the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 31080 over the Detail K2 Rampage II Snowplow with the Custom Mounting Brackets for Detail K2 Snowplows part # K284134 for two reasons. The first reason is that the Detail K2 Avalanche has a has a much higher winch capacity of 3,000 lbs than the Detail K2 Rampage II which is only rated at 1,500 lbs.

  • What is the Receiver Height Requirement for a Detail K2 Snow Plow
  • I spoke with my contact at Detail K2 who said that the height of the front hitch receiver on your 2005 Jeep Wrangler needs to be within the range of 13" - 18" which is measured to the bottom of the receiver opening. This is the case for all of their plows, including the Avalanche # K2AVAL8422 that you referenced.

  • Snow Plow and Mount Recommendation for 1994 Jeep Wrangler 4WD
  • I'd recommend going with a plow mount for your vehicle over a hitch style mount. On some hitch mount setups we've seen the hitch not be as durable as the mounts that mount to the frame and are specifically for plows so that's what I feel is the better solution. The Detail K2 Storm Plow part # K2AVAL8422 that you referenced is a great choice, and then for mounts custom fit to your 1994 Jeep Wrangler we have the part # K284115 which would work great.

The K2 Avalanche # K2AVAL8422 has a blade which can adjust to be angled to the left or right as well as straight ahead and gets raised or lowered with an electric winch that is operated via remote control so you do not have to leave the cab

  • Front Hitch For Carrying Canoes On A 2012 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4x4
  • In addition to the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31023 for your 2012 GMC Sierra, you are correct that you will also need at least a single roof rack bar like the Darby Turbo rack # DTA968 and a carrier like the LongArm # Y01149-1150 that can tilt down making it easier to load the canoe. It also has an anti-rattle hitch bolt which is something that is needed for these types of carriers. Without an anti-rattle hitch bolt or device there is a lot of movement with these carriers. For

  • Recommended Hitch Cargo Carrier for Use on Front Hitch # C31023 on GMC Sierra 2500HD
  • Thank you for your recent purchase of Curt front-mount hitch receiver # C31023 for your Sierra 2500HD. This 2-inch hitch offers a maximum tongue weight (TW) capacity of 500-lbs so a cargo carrier rated for 450-500-lbs will be a good choice. Please click on the link provided to see all fixed cargo carriers in this capacity range. I suggest a lightweight aluminum carrier like the MaxxTow # MT70108 because it weighs only 29-lbs and this will leave more of your hitch capacity for your cargo.

  • Recommendation for Transporting 420 Pound Sportbike While Towing 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Going with a front mounted hitch and a heavy duty carrier for your sportbike is really the only option for transporting your bike while towing a 5th wheel trailer. The motorcycle carriers we currently have available are not rated for use behind a trailer, so this will be the best solution. For your 2013 Chevy Silverado, I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31023. This hitch will provide you with a 2 inch receiver opening and has a 500 pound vertical load capacity.

  • Low Hanging Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 GMC Sierra 2500HD
  • You can use a high low adapter like part # RM-048-8 to lower the hitch opening but you should note that it will lower the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. I attached a picture of the Curt Hitch part # C31023 installed and you can see it sits a bit closer to the ground. This might be your best option since it wouldn't require the use of the high low adapter.

  • Front Hitch and Bike Rack for Front of 2012 Chevy Silverado 3500

In this price range for a bike rack I like to recommend the Hollywood Racks # HR200Z as it costs about the same and is much more stable on the road.

  • Will the Curt Front Mount Trailer hitch 31023 Fit a 2014 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt who told me that front mount hitch # C31023 will fit the 2014 GMC Sierra Denali but because of the differences in the front fascia/bumper and air dam there may be some trimming required to get the hitch to fit. Once installed the receiver will exit below the front license plate. I have linked a video showing a typical installation for you.
