    Umm my friend has a 250 also with a 42 inch moose blade with side shields. giant rock on back but no chains. ive used it a few times and it plows just fine but when u get into the deeper ssnow chains would be nice.

    ya then u prob wnt have any troubles my friend is running stock tires and doesnt have much trouble. but i did expierence troubles when going up a curb because there was very little clearance once you get the push tubes on.. i would go with moose they make good sturdy equitment and if u dnt want to have to pay for shipping cross country most honda dealers have moose products.

    if you want Cheap due a CL search for your area and find a Used plow and go that route.

    If you want something Good get a Moose and then when you upgrade the quad in a few years you can transfer the Plow to the newer quad.
    or get a CC plow set up and that way your running the same system as your other plow setup.

    just my thoughts.

    i probably wont get a plow.. the only reason id use it is to plow some neighborhood drives to make some extra money.. and my dads has a hard time backing up the drive with 6in of snow

    I dont use my that often but it is nice to have to make some extra money or like you said when u get 6 7 inches of snow it sure cuts time down. we just got 26 inches in one dump on christmas and its nice to stack the snow up n back it away from the drive.
