I have a 03 450S what is the recommended blade size to push snow with.
The 48" blade or the 60"? Will the bike have any trouble pushing 60" other than heavy wet snow?

Thanks for any input.

I had 48" plow on my old 350 and it seemed about perfect. At times I thought I should have bought a 60" but then in deep powder snow it took a lot of power to push the 48". I only used it for two winters then sold that bike,but if I ever buy another plow it would be 48".For my current driveway a snowblower works the best.When I had the plow on the 350 I needed a lot of room to pile the snow.

go with the 60",

I have a 60" Moose on my 02 Foreman 450. and my Dad has a 48" on his Kawi, and after Plowing with the 60 vs the 48 it takes for ever to move snow around with the 48 inch blade.

Sublime out.

alot depend on your amount of snow fall your moving. I good up to about 8" of snow then the pushing gets tough. and If you due a lot of side walk's you might want to go smaller the 60 is to wide I have to angle it all teh way to keep the blade on the pavement and not rip into the grass.

but power wise the 450 can push the 60 blade just fine.

I have a 48" ... Here in my part of Canada we get snow just about every night (mostly just a few inches) but we get several GOOD storms a winter in the 24" range .. 60" maybe good in places where 6" of snow is called a storm , I know if I had a 60" I'd be replacing my centrifugal clutch every year ..

I have the 50" Moose plow and it works great. My driveway is about 100 feet long or so and I can plow it in about 15-20 minutes. I wouldn't go any smaller than that.
