I barely top out at 25 mph, and that’s the few times I have it on a paved road. I also increased the bed wall height, so I can’t really say wind back drafting is a problem for me.

So you have a roof top and a front windshield and it is just fine ?

No worries, but yes for me the wind from the back hasn’t been a problem. I could see how other side by sides may have that issue, RTV’s are not high speed vehicles, but if you find it an issue a flat piece of plexiglass for a back window would be easy to add.

I had a X900 for 7 years and 11,000 miles before getting a new X1100C this past December. I purchased a glass widow and metal roof for the 900 and I highly recommend going with a glass windshield with wiper if you are going to plow. Scrapping ice off a plastic windshield scratches it terribly. I put a Mylar sheet over the rear screen to keep snow from flying in and it worked really well in the summer as well at keeping the dust down. Plowing with a RTV is wonderful.

Interesting. So you live in a region with a good snowfall. What is the plow setup that you had on your RTV 900 ?

Thanks

I live in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire - we get an average of 75 inches per year - most storms are 4-10 inches. I have a Boss V-Plow. It is terrific.
