    Moved from an atv up to a utv...great move! I also have an enclosed cab (soft side) and a small propane heater....look forward to plowing snow!!! Also have a snowblower for the drifts, need that for the ocassional really deep drifts or throwing excess snow over the wall created by the plow blade. Here in Ohio, we dont get alot of snow so playtime is fewer and farther between.

    What kind of heater and how do you keep it in one place and keep the windshield from fogging?

    It is called a golf cart heater, made a quick holder from 2 pcs plywood and a coffee can filled with concrete. Made 4 as weights for portable shelter so I used 1 as a weight to keep heater from tipping. For snow plowing it works great, but wouldnt trust it trail riding, to much speed and rough trails. Runs about 5 hrs on 16oz tank. Full heat in less than 2 minutes, no fogging of windshield at all. I keep mine coated with spray auto polish/wax or rainex for plastic and no fogging.

    I plow with my SXS with a 6' blade. Yamaha Wolverine x2 .works great. That Heater and soft sides and back sounds like a awesome idea. ILL have to check that out.

    I've got a full soft cab, I wouldn't be without it now. Have heated seats in the 19 Odes but curious about the heater

    X2 on that cab enclosure, keeps the cold blast out of your face. I just wear my Carhart jacket and some light weight gloves and a stocking hat, toasty warm can plow all day ....and yes I do sometimes just for the fun f it !! It is not sealed really well but definetly enough to make a really big difference. Mine is a Pacific Eagle enclosure, same material as a premium boat cover...takes about 2 hrs to install and remove in the spring. I have to remove windshield and hard top to install and remove enclosure, then reinstall windshield and top over the enclosure. Little bit of work but definetly worth the time. Neighbor is wrapped up in full snowmobile gear to use his atv to plow, takes him longer to dress than to plow snow.....
