Alpine flex plow questions

Well I've searched and read so many forums and watched the vids now I have some questions.

Does anybody know how the plow handles in snow that was wet but had a chance to freeze? (like frozen driveway tire ruts) With my line of work I could be home late and its happened before causing shovel nightmares.

Also how is the lighting on a stock Can-Am 2012 500xt while plowing at night or should I invest in some extra lights?

So far I'm waiting for dealer to email me back with prices! I'm tired of waiting for my normal plow guy to clear the yard!!

Full size loaders with snow blades have a hard time dealing with this, as do dump trucks with belly blades. Don't expect an ATV plow to do any better. It's best to get at the snow when it falls.

Yup, you'll need better lighting front and back. I've had good luck with mail order LED work lights.
