    Default What length of snow plow?

    What length of snowplow are you all using on your 4wheelers. I have a Honda 500 and don't want to go too small or too big with the plow choice. Thanks

    Don't go smaller than 60" unless the area you want to plow is small or if you want to clear a specific area like a 48" wide sidewalk. Also stay with a 48" if your machine is less than 300cc. 48"s and 52"s suck bad if you have alot of area to plow.

    I dont have the 60 and yes it does take me a while to clear the snow with the smaller plow, but I had a buddy weld some wings on the sides and that helps a ton!

    That's what I should do to my 60". It feels like I'm out there pushing snow with a spoon.

    My first plow was for my Kodiak 400. I made the mistake of listening to the dealer and bought the 48 inch plow. This wheeler will handle a 60 incher with ease, and I recommend you get one bigger than the 48.
    Now just why in the hell do I have to press "1" for English???

    Yeah and you dont have to go back and make so many clean-up passes. We just used some scrap 1/8" steel he had lying around...

    I run a 66" State Plow on my Rhino 660. I wish I would have gone with the 72" model.
