I had a 2013 Sportsman 550 EPS but sold it to my father-in-law. I then purchased a 2020 Can-Am Outlander XT 650 which, I also recently sold. I just wasn't happy with some of the features. I was pleased with the twin-cylinder power tho... I plan to purchase a new Sportsman before spring and I plan to plow snow with it in the winter. I live in Northern Maine and we get a decent amount of snow. My driveway is about 150ft long.
Should I get the 850, or will the 570 be enough to handle plowing all that snow?
It's not really about the machines power, it's more about, tires, plow blade size and set angle, machine weight. 570 vs 850, for the most part you will loose momentum and traction before you run out of power.
