Snow Plow advise

i am giving my parents my Rhino to use at our hunting camp in PA. Any suggestions for what plow to buy?
this is a dirt / gravel driveway and not really level or smooth

How do they do plowing snow? any advise is greatly appreciated.

i have a winch on it now in a receiver, will it need to be removed?

Have'nt put a plow on my Rhino yet but have had 3 on 4 wheelers in the past plowing snow in northern Minnesota on gravel make sure it has shoe's on it and with a 66 inch or 72 inch blade. The 4 wheelers I had a 60 inch plow which they handled easy.

The winch is better yet for easier operation. You may have to put it on a permanent mount depending on the brand of plow.

Depending on the type of snow you get (went pug that freezes, dry etc) may be a question for you - I get the wet pug that freezes and bent my 72" click n go - not very happy with it - main frame (hd version) also bent. Perhaps the 60" would have been a better option. Just my 2 cents.

I cannot remember the name of mine; but, the blade has "push-arms" that go back to brackets under your feet. I have pushed a crap load of snow w/it and it works GREAT!!!! Way better than the set up I had on the quad.

i use a moose 72" plow. the rhino works better than what i thought it would. put chains on the rear tires and some firewood in the bed and go. the mounting of the plow sucked, i changed it to hitch style. much easier on and off. 2nd problem was the winch cable kept breaking. so i changed that also. the winch sits above and in front of the bumper and rope pulls straight down on the plow. doesnt touch the fairlead. check out this site, montana jacks.com. very nice winch mounting, winch rotator for plow. i made the same thing, about 100$ at tractor supply. i thought he wanted to much for pieces.
