Excellent point. The viper I had that gave me battery rundown issues was a 4000lb winch put on by the previous owner. The. I went back to a 2500lb. That's all you need. Especially since my winch I used for plowing or hoisting the bike upright in my garage so I can remove the skids. I've used a winch once while trail riding I'm 20 years. I'm not a mud guy and know my limits with hill climbs.

A front mount plow will take weight off of the front tires while pushing mounds of snow. One of the most important factors when shopping for a plow is how wet and heavy the typical snow fall is in your area. If you often get light powdery snow then you can get away with a wider plow. In my area the temp usually hovers just below freezing so the snow fall is typically pretty heavy. It often snows 8 or so inches over night and that much heavy snow can give my 52" plow a fit even on my brute 750. It is not the power of the machine, it is the weight of the machine. The snow in front of the plow becomes heavier than the quad has traction to push. People will always telly ou to get a wide plow, but I do not think it is that simple. and back to my 1st sentence, if you opt for a front mount, it would be beneficial to pick a narrower plow because as you push heavy snow, a front mount will push up on the front of the quad which gives you less forward traction.

I highly recomend a moose plow. I have one that I have used for 3 years and it has taken a lot of abuse. it is very well made. I am also ruinnign a Viper #3000 lb winch with no issues. You do not need a very big winch for a quad. And alot of the amp draw problems come from people getting winches that are bigger than they realistically need. A 2500 lb winch will get any quad unstuck with the use of a snatch block.
Thank you.

Like mentioned before a front mount take the weight off the front wheels also a center mount distributes the weight/force better across the quad. I'd recomend replacing you cable or rope with a strap when your plowing or using it for the winter months. The strap can be any (ratchet strap) or something it just so you don't wear you cable or rope.

That's where I bought mine from. It isn't too good to be true. That deal is for real. I just suggest paying a few bucks more for the synthetic rope version. Well worth it. Worse case swap it out after. Cheap upgrade and well worth the $40 or bucks.

When it comes to a winch you get what you pay for. I personally would not cheap out. Id go with a Warn XT30 3000 LB Synthetic Winch. Plus it comes with the wireless remote control. $400 Bucks and ull never have to worry about it again.
