Automatic Wiper Blade

Postby RZRDuner1 » Wed Jan 01, 2014 5:35 pm

Does anyone know of an automatic windshield wiper for UTVs? The wiper blade below is all I have been able to find, and I can't see using this manually while I'm driving through a blizzard. Thanks.

I think the lack of wipers is due to the plastic windshields. Anything rubbing plastic is going to eventually scratch them. A good polish is as good as anything (similar to putting Rain-X on glass windshields - you don't even have to turn the wipers on.) If you can reduce the ability of snow/slush/etc. to stick, then you don't have the need for wipers.

Try Googling "universal electric wiper kit", there are tons out there for hot rods, etc. etc. consisting of electric motors. I noted that some retrofits for tractor cabs even cautioned that they are for use with safety glass windshields only.
