T410 for snowplowing question


Recommended Posts

I am thinking of buying a T410 Boss for plowing snow.  The snowfalls in my area  (Southeast PA).  Are normally in the 5-10 inch range.  We had a 20 incher last month, but that was the exception to the rule.  My driveway is macadam and the main one is 160 ft long.  I will be plowing downhill mostly and some level parking areas.   I am asking if the T410 can adequately handle this situation with 25HP.  Other then plowing,  I would have little use except maybe picking up dead branches around the property.  As for plowing, I would guess about 6-8 times a year.  I am choosing the T410 on price as the little I use it, I want to spend the least money.  Thanks for any opinions.

this is just my personal opinion formed from what i've read on internet forums about Massimo.

they may be cheaper, but when they do break,  you might have trouble Finding out the problem, & getting a repair part for the problem.

if i were you, i would look into a used Kawasaki Mule or Polaris ranger of sorts. Dealers, parts and manufacturer support is more widely available.

it's not too uncommon to find a 10 or 15 year old mule with 500 hours or less, which at that point, they're just wearing in good.

      I just purchased a new 2019 Massimo T-Boss 410 March 2020. I haven't figured out how to unlock the differential?  There isn't a switch?

      I have a 2018 T Boss 550. It is currently in the shop for an exhaust leak. The shop is telling me that Massimo (SCAutosports) is out of the exhaust gaskets along with numerous other parts.  Is there any other resources for parts and is this a problem anyone else is having?

      I was wondering if anyone has plated one of these machines in any state.  I'm in FL and am going to try to plate my T-Boss 550x Golf.  Talked to a State Trooper who said it's absolutely plateable the way it sits and also talked to my insurance company and they said the same.  I'm not sure what they will consider this type of machine, a golf cart or low speed vehicle.  Their are different stipulations for both.  I'll keep this thread updated once I get an inspection.

      Hi there...
      Amateur here.......in process of finalizing a purchase of a 2021 Kawasaki Mule PRO-FXT Ranch Edition.  We have 60 acres of well suited land for riding and are finally pulling the trigger on a side by side.  After some research and test driving we settled on the Mule PRO-FXT.  We plan to make the purchase now and then likely add a snow plow next fall (though we're not certain of this).  Due to the color (that my wife wants) and the features, it makes more sense for us to get the Ranch version than the LE.  That said, the winch that comes with the Ranch edition apparently doesn't accommodate a synthetic cable which is what they recommend for use with a snow plow.  So......I would have to buy a 2nd winch kit to replace the existing.  
      I'm disappointed they can't work something out with me to swap them out rather than me buying another one but that is where I find myself.   I need to buy it from this dealer (long story that is not interesting.....but this is the only option I have).   The quote for the new winch kit is $710 + $147 for labor.
      In any event, I'm looking for any thoughts more experienced people might have.  My tentative plan is just to leave the original winch on until next fall, then swap them out when I confirm I want to add a snow plow.  Or should I consider removing the original winch while it is brand new and try to sell it on the secondary market?   Would it be difficult to sell?
      I would also appreciate any recommendations on the plow itself.  Does it make sense getting it through the dealer or are there other types/brands you would recommend?  One thing I found slightly confusing is that the dealer said the Ranch winch doesn't come with a remote switch.....you have to use the switch on the dash.  But maybe that is only with the original winch.  I would think having a remote hand held switch would be advantageous when moving snow.
      Hope these aren't silly questions.   I really appreciate any insights you can provide.
