    Go with a Grizzly 450. It will fit on the walks and have enough power to move the snow.

    i had two brothers that got yammis one a grizz and the other a bigbear, the big bear won everytime, gearing is what i figured it out to be, they were both stock and new and it surprised me

    Gearing shouldn't be a issue. I use low gear whenever I plow. The clutch engages almost immediately so I'm not loading the clutch when in high gear. Plus it's easier to go from forward to back.
