Thats a fine first ATV. Alot of people think you have to have a huge, powerful machine to have fun or get any work done.....it most cases they are wrong.
I have a buddy that pushes LOTS of snow for a living.....he uses a 2wd Fourtrax 300 with tire chains and some weight on the racks. Works just fine.....he just has to keep decent momentum up when pushing deeper snow.
Your 4wd Fourtrax will push even more snow, easier.
My personal quad is a 2000 Suzuki 300 King Quad 4x4. Despite the fact Im 6ft4in and 300lbs that 300cc ATV pulls me just fine.....I have just as much fun on the trails as my buddy on this Kawasaki Brute Force. I dont get there was fast.....but I get there. Ive pushed tons of snow with it as well....snow taller then the 4 wheeler. Ive pulled cars out of ditches.....even pushed a stuck forklift out of the mud the other day....those things are heavy.
Put some decent tires on it and keep it serviced and your good to go.
