    Local dealer near me has this quad for sale with a 54" moose plow and warn RT25 winch for $4k. How are they when it comes to plowing? Im sure plowing anything under a foot wouldn't be a problem but I am wonder how it will handle over a foot of wet snow/ice.

    Also how are they in the off season when it comes to mud? The tires on now are half worn down so they will need to be replaced if I buy it.

    we run a few of these machines, and I have one personally. what i've heard from the operators is that compared to the polaris machines we have, these are easier to turn, and handle better, but the polaris is better once the snow starts piling up. The suzuki also has less ground clearance with the plow on, so we have had more snapped winches cables on the suzuki over the polaris. As for my personal one I have very limited winter use on mine, normally it sits at my cottage with the plow on, and by the time I get up there, the snow is too deep to use it anyway.....

    as for offroad in the off season, i've never gotten mine stuck......i've pulled out a neighbors ford expedition that was buried in a snow bank, as well as a different neighbors tractor that was buried in a swamp (the warn winch is awesome)
