Hisun Vector 500 plow bolt

Recommended Posts

I can’t find good documentation anywhere on what size bolt I need to attach a snow plow to the frame below the winch. Does anyone know where I can find the answer to this? I have a hisun vector 500 and it’s a 2017

Hey Aaron, welcome to the forum. I can't tell you exactly what bolt you need for a specific application. But what I'd do, is this. Try to find out what approximate size it is. I'd guess around a half inch or so. The more important measurement here would be length. A couple of 3/16 pieces of steel, bolted together would need about a 3/4 inch length bolt, minimum. That's to leave threads for a flat washer & nut. You'll want to get a grade 5 bolt. Those shiny zinc hardware store bolts won't do for a heavy duty application, like a plow. But grade 8 is better. Price difference is negligible.

As far as the actual size... I typically use a drill bit to insert in the hole(the sizes are marked on them) if I need to be certain. Otherwise, I just buy several, at 18 cents apiece. That's why length, and grade is important. So you're not buying the whole hardware store. Buy a bolt of a couple sizes starting at a 1/2 inch×3/4 long, along with a couple flat washers each. The nuts would be locknuts. Be prepared to return to the store if it isn't a snug fit. 

I've found that it's always a good practice to keep a mindset, that I'll be returning to the hardware store before I finish the job...it saves my sanity sometimes.

I agree with Kenfain, but knowing the HiSUN uses metric bolts and fasteners, I would think 10mm is the closest thing to the 1/2" bolt. the 10mm is smaller than the 1/2", but larger than the 3/8". Most of the bolts on the HiSUN are either 10mm or 12mm when it comes to the big boys. they do have some smaller 8mm bolt openings but this would be too small to handle the snow plow mount area.

      Hello.  I purchased this unit as a "non runner" with the intent of using the frame to build a go-cart, but once I got it home it seemed way to good to part out.  The motor cranks over, and I have spark, but no fuel.  If I put a little fuel in the cylinder it fires up until that fuel is burnt, then of course it dies.  The fuel pump is not running and I have removed the plug and there is no power going to it.  I have checked the safety switch on the brake pedal and its fine, I have checked the fuses, all good, but am not sure where to go from here. The shifter is missing on the unit, but the indicator light on the dash shows its in neutral, and the e-brake indicator switch is working as well.  I am thinking of jumping power to the fuel pump next to see if it runs and if the motor will start.
      What am I missing?  What can stop the fuel pump from getting power to it?

      Does anyone have a free download link for this service manual? Thanks
      Hi friends. I'm Anıl. I live in Turkey. I have a Hisun 700 UTV 2015 Models. My problem is : 
      inability to change gear after the engine has started. Before the engine starts, it can shift into all gears; but after running, I cannot change gear. At about 3000 km. Fuel injection model. Can anyone help on this topic? Thank you!

      I acquired a Coleman UT400  just after Thanksgiving (2020) and find it to be quite different than most others seen on the web--the most visible difference is that the cylinder slants toward the rear placing the "hot spot" under the bed rather than under the seat (a significant improvement to my mind). THe curious prt of this is that neither Coleman nor  Hisun seem to acknowledge  this major design change. In fact the Owner's manual supplied with the vehicle appears tp haqve been written for a completely different unit--showing the ignition and light switches mounted in the dash (they are stalk mounted on the steering column on mine) and indicates that to change the spark plug requires removing the seat (the cylinder head and plug are under the bed on mine):

      I wrote to Coleman and they sent me a what is supposed to be the most recent "UT400-5" manual which is still wrong about 90%+ of the vehicle. Neither the Coleman or Hisun websites are of any use as their content provides no photos and very little information about maintenance or the engine/drive train in general.
      Is anyone aware of when these changes were made, or of any sites offering info re: this latest mode?  Currently I'm battling shift cable adjustment to find better and more consistent reverse gear selection.
      Mine also differs in that the parking brake is a single caliper and disc mounted on the rear differential pinion shaft (this seems to be a "5 brake" configuration I have found reference to.
      Overall it seems well designed and manufactured--the chassis welds are as nice as you could ask for and the castings and  machining are top notch.
      Any information or suggestions as to where to look would be appreciated...
