The 400 foreman is a great work bike, plenty of low end grunt for heavy loads. Should be great for plow work being it sits low to the ground. Also take a look at the 450's same bike except it has a few more cc's in the engine and alittle more supension travel. Its just like buying a car, just take you time and inspect it good, drive it and listen for unusual noises. I have seen some near mint 2000 foreman 400's and 450's go for $3000-$3500.
