    Got 8" of heavy wet snow overnight. 1st real now for my brand new 2007 Polaris 800 Sportsman and I believe 60" (maybe 54") Country Style plow. I've got about a 900' long uphill steep driveway.

    How did it do? Awesome. At first I had the plow on the 1st hole off center and I the snow wasn't moving over, so I had to crank the plow all the way over to the 2nd hole off center and then the snow was flying!!!

    I had power and traction (stock tires) on snow that compacts and turns slick even plowing uphill. I am happy but and looking to get a set of ATV super stud v-bar chains for the ice.

    I don't know how a smaller ATV would handle the type of snow we have here in Coastal Southeast AK, but I am happy with the 800.

    I'm glad to here that you had good luck with your ATV and plow. But I do think a 500 could handle 8'' of heavy snow.
