    i plow with my sportsman 400 and the thing is a tank in the snow. just make sure you add weight to the rear and possibly some chains and it will make it unstoppable

    ya i actually got the chance to plow with it earlier this year, i get sketchy about putting chains on it because i got some driveways that are freshly tarred this summer and get nervous about tearing it up, but have you done anything to the front suspension of your sportsman?

    all i did was add the polaris suspension spacers so the front end doesnt drop as far when the plow is lifted. if i had the money i would just add heavier duty springs
