I got an 04 Kodiak 450 also. A winch for the plow is the only way to go.

I put ITP Mudlite XTR's on it this fall and man does that thing crawl through this 22 inches of snow.

I have a 05 350 bruin and bought a plow for it.Sure as heck beats shoveling my driveway by hand.I got the electric lift,a little slow to move but will get a winch someday.
Does anyone know if a winch moves faster than the electric lift?

The plow was the better choice because you can go to ebay and buy a warn copy winch for less than $100. You can't buy a generic plow so for $150 you get a full setup ready to go.

The ITP 589's, mudlites, and xtr's are all very good tires

Gotta Griz 450 with the plow and winch and it does a great job...I think my favorite part of it all is that the whole bottom of the bike is skidplated pretty much for that plow mount they use with my "click n'go" plow.

No school today and my son wanted to plow...unfortunately it did not start up this AM, and with a suit and tie on I was not about to mess with it much. Will try it again tonight. Been sitting for about a month, but had this trouble last year when it sat in real cold temps.

I bought this ATV when I lived in Maine, and the plow about a month later. Great set-up for all the snow they get up there!!

Polaris 700 with a 48 inch Moose. Winch was awesome, as was being able to change plow angles (manually.)

Another question in regard to plowing...... For a Polaris sportsman 500 I found a 52" Warn plow and mount kit for $400. Is 52" gonna be to big a swath for the quad to push effectively? Are there any other brands that can be reccomended for less money?
