Fyi, the renegades only weigh 700lbs. The 850 slightly under and the 1000 is slightly over. Also they have 78hp and 91hp. The 700xx weighs 500 lbs and has around 40hp.

You should find out if this one is still available. U ship would bring it to MN for around $600 give or take a little.

If I had not found mine a few months earlier, this one would be sitting in my garage.

Double hp is tough. My weight premise is based on sleds. Mine is around 450lbs with 160hp and comparing it to a 590lb Turbo with 200hp it is no comparison. The turbo is fun in a straight line and on lakes, but sucks pounding the ditch and trails. I want a ditch and trail ATV as well. The big 4wd frighten me as my expectation is that they will not be as much fun. Are you implying differently? I am not going to be able to test ride a 700xx before buying it to compare, but have to assume I am not too far off base.

I sent him an email. Post is old...

Am I over reading into the posts. Sounds like you guys are trying to talk me out of the 700xx. I expected the opposite on a forum so perhaps it is refreshing, but if I am off base call me out please!

This one doesn't look like it has been loved to me...but I like the IMS tank and taller seat/bars.

This one looks cleaner, but of course that is because it is clean. Considering the green grass they are using an old picture.

Both are within 2 hours of me and ok to look at. I will start a new thread on things to check....going to search for one first.

Means the power to weight ratio is rather similar with me on the Scrambler or TRX (39.5kW on the 700xx and the '13 era 850 have about 57kW => ratio within 1% of each other ). Either way, as with sleds I've found that it isn't always fastest to ride the one that goes the fastest. Agility is worth a ton and even if they have to wait for me (lol) I will be having more fun in the ride which is what it is all about.

Across the US on Craigslist (yes I am nuts enough to search everywhere) there are about 40 700XX's for sale. None of them have upgraded shocks amusingly. Personally if I buy a stock unit, the better maintained and cared for one will win.
