looking to get a quad to plow the driveway in the winter. this will be its main purpose but i'm sure i'll have other uses but selling the wife on using it for a plow.

just looking for sugestions and any to totally avoid.not sure if we are gonna get new or used we'll see when the time comes. i looked at the susuki,polaris and kawasaki today, wanna see some yamahas too.also reports on dealers good and bad

tater - I have a kawasaki brute force plenty of power for plowing the driveway.. up here in the Erie area we get alot of snow.. only thing I would do different is to get a wing plow instead of a straight plow - a plow like the highway dept uses - higher on one side (discharge side) couldn't throw the snow over the snow piled up at the edge of driveway - had to make a couple passes with snowblower to give me room to plow the driveway - and get rid of the stock cable on your winch they break alot from raising and lowering the plow - took a header over the handle bars last year..best investment i could have made and makes plowing the driveway fun!!
