    I'm buying a new '08 Honda Rubicon (Canadian Trail Edition) 500 this week and need a plow set-up.....debating the pros and cons of a winch or manual system for snow removal. Driveways and sidewalks only, no commercial stuff.

    youll need a winch if you get stuck so i say 3000# is the way to go.

    This has been discussed many times, its personall preferance. I had the manual lift and it was too much of a pain for me, many say you can plow faster with it, but I like using a winch alot better

    I have a Warn 2500lb winch on my 2004 Arctic Cat 500 4x4 and there is no way I would het a hand lift. My winch had a hard time picking up my plow somtimes when the snow is realy heavy. Get a Warn 2500lb or 3000lb winch you will be much hapeir.

    I'd get a winch.

    That way its easy when you plow.

    But not only that.. you can also pull yourself out of mud when you go riding :)

    I get stuck alot when I go riding.
