Is there a snow blower attachment for the Pioneer? And if there is, does anybody have an idea of if it works well or not?

No, you need Power Take Off to run attachments like a snow blower, the best you can hope for is a snow blade but you will have to get additional hydraulics to make it work, The Pioneer does not have Hydraulic capabilities..

I don't know if they make those blowers wide enough for the utv's. If they do I'm sure there will be an attachment for the Pioneer. Depending on your situation a blade is going to be much cheaper and move the snow faster. Plus you can use it all year pushing brush piles or grading a gravel driveway.

What sort of area do you need to clear snow off of?
These UTV attachments can get expensive, you might be better off buying an old used F150 that already has a snow plow attachment. sometimes you can find them for a couple grand

You might have to get a bull bar first in order to fit any sort of attachment. A snow blower piece would be real nice and give you another reason to use the pioneer for. I would say maybe about $4-5k after said and done.

Ok, maybe the snow blade would be a better choice. I'd be using it to clear my large drive way and walkway up to the house.

It might be cheaper to get a snow blower that doesn't attach to this (though it would be fun to drive around a snow blower right?)

Snow blowers are kind of slow so the "fun factor" wouldn't be there very long. I have a blast with a blade though. I just ignore the warning label for the speed part.. lol

it's only worth it if you have a massive property to clear that would take forever with a snow blower you have to push. the one's you push around are mainly for residential use

I have a long driveway and its wide too so it would help to have a snow blower instead of the blade. instead of the transmission taking all the stress the snow blower would make it a breeze to chew up the snow making it lighter to disperse.

Go to you tube and watch some vids on atv/utv snow blowers and then on blades. A blade would not be that hard on the drive line or transmission. I've been pushing snow for over 20yrs with a atv and blade. You can move a lot of snow in a little bit of time.

A blower would be from a different company than Honda, just like the blade. For the size of blower you would need I would guess the price to be around 7 grand. You can get a blade and winch for under a grand. Big difference in price but if you could make some money with a blower it might be a way to go.

I don't know if I can justify spending around 7 grand for the blower. Unless you clear a handful of driveways for cash. A blade sounds more reasonable for the price.

Yeah it really depends on your situation I guess.

If it was up to me i would buy a used truck with a plow already on it, you can find them for really good prices.
