Re: Considering upgrade
If you want a review on the new Briggs check out the post by Willscary titled:A conquest prestige and dealer. I haven't read any reviews on the Prestige 4X4 but that is full time 4 wheel drive. I have a 2006 Prestige and just love it, and I also have the Legacy XL 4X4 with the FEL, 47" 2 stage snow blower and the hardside cab. With the cab on along with the snow blower and the field trak tires I do not use weights or chains and do most of the snow duties in 2wd, I think I have only had to use 4wd just a few times but it is nice to have it.
I would talk to your dealer and see what he thinks is the best way to go. I'm sure some of the other members will join in on their thoughts.
