i have a plow on my kodiak 400 amd it works pretty good. i have the winch hooked up. ive never had any problems with the winch except the cable snapping a few times because your lifting the plow up every time you back up. the best thing about the kodiak is all you do is pull the gear shifter into reverse and go then put it back in forward. no shifting gears. its alot easier than going from 2 ,1 ,N, R then back again. but i like gear drive better.
