Question Snow stuck in the Radiator?

I was think after all the guys were talking about snow riding and it was so deep that the snow would get crammed into the radiator. Would this over Heat the Rhino? You shouldn't have to scoop it away do you?

To answer your question... i have never had problems with snow overheating any of my rigs, the snow melts from the heat of the radiator and drips off....
