That sounds about right! I gave away my old snowblower this summer and didn't bother replacing it. We got a foot of snow in 2 days a few weeks back and another 4" then another 6"..... Only another 4-5 months of snow!:confused:

I don't have any tips to offer, last time I cleared snow with a blade was on an old 2wd honda many moons ago. Maybe buy a snowblower to just for good measure then you'll be guaranteed no snow for next year too.

I had two snowblowers prior to buying my T4 with a plow. I have one to my father n law and the other one is sitting in my garage still as I never use it. The little bit of areas I can’t get with the plow, I spend a couple of minutes with the shovel.

First thing I would mention is run your cable from your plow to the top of your front bumper. This takes the weight off of the winch, bracket and fair lead. I know my setup is the moose brand and they have a pulley system that mounts to the plow for the winch. The dealership didn’t put that on when I bought it so it ended up bending the fairlead exposing the edge of the bracket which caused the rope to break. Dealership fixed everything but I had to pay for the pulley. $40 I think.
When you plow, go slow. I think I stay under about 7 mph. Angle the blade and have fun. Always lift the blade before you go in reverse. Don’t try dragging the blade in reverse. It can cause some damage to the mounting bracket. Make sure you have a drink with you as well. Very important to stay hydrated.

Good advice above on plowing. I’ve never plowed with the Teryx, but have with a Grizzly and Brute Force 750. They did a fantastic job, so I can only imagine how well a SxS does. Plowing is actually fun, so enjoy!

Once you plow with the Teryx, you will wonder why you ever plowed with a quad.

setup looks good. I'm not sure where you are located, but one other tip when plowing is to make sure you give yourself enough room to push for the whole winter. If you are in an area that doesn't get much snow, or it melts throughout the winter it's not a big deal, but if you're in a place where it accumulates for a few months you want to make sure that you give yourself room to put the snow. So, push it back far enough in dump areas (end of driveway, turn arounds, etc) so that you have still have room come February.
