If you are primarily a trail rider I personally dont see an advantage to the 440. The ZL 500 is 96hp, just 3 shy of the 440 sno pro and as mentioned, it will likely require less frequent repairs. The ZL500 will ride nicer on the trail but it wont take jumps and ditch banging like the sno pro. Also, if you want more power theres lots you can do to that 500 to turn it into a rocket.
Thats my 2 cents worth.
