Try not to get caught up in the bigger is better mentality. I've got a Honda Rancher 350 that constantly amazes me. Lat fall I pulled a twenty foot water logged butternut tree out of the mud next to my driveway no problem. I plow my 800ft driveway with it (had four storms over 24" last year) with no problems using chains on the back.
My buddy has an artic cat 500 that is a nice machine but it is BIG. The Honda 350 is much more compact and manuoverable (sp.). The one thing I don't like about it is it is full time 4x4 although I think the new models are switchable. One more thing to think about is direct drive vs belt drive. Once the belt gets wet on a belt drive you are stuck. There are an awful lot of OLD Hondas out there. Pretty much bullet proof.
