    Default polairs 800 Big Boss hp

    ??
    I got the 6x Big Boss with the 800 and Iam trying to find the HP for it
    they say that the Ranger 6x is 40 hp is that true
    and is my 800 Big boss the same at 40hp or did they do there thing to it
    Iam just trying to find out where the BS stops and the real hp starts
    Just because its a 800 doesnt mean it gots alot of hp
    I got a 600 snow sled that puts out 100-110 hp
    So how come they dont put out a lets say a 500 twin at 50 hp
    Or Iam I looking at that this all wrong

    ?

    I could be miss reading your post but are you wondering why say a 550 twin snowmachine has 50 HP vs. a 800 cc 6x6 has only 40?

    Sorry to say your 800 is not even an 800.

    You can't compare HP between 2 stroke and 4 stroke.

    55 hp is the number for the Sportsman Big Boss 6X6. If I didn't need the seating or bed space I would have a Big Boss vs. my 2010 Ranger 6X6. However, with enough money and know-how a guy can take a 2010 or newer Ranger 6X6 and get the same 55 hp I believe it takes a new cam, new ecu mapping, maybe some clutching but essentially they are the same engine. Because of the EPA certain sized (length, GVWR, etc) UTV's are restricted to certain hp limits. It's baloney! That's why even the Ranger XP is 46 or maybe 50 hp compared to the Ranger 6X6 which is only 40 hp but same engine

    thanks all
    I just wasnt looking in the right spots 55hp sounds a lot better than 40 because its a beast I have had it stuck 1 time My soninlaw had his 4x in mud up to the fuel tank an we had to have two 4x be hind me as dead men and pull me back out of it to I put the winch line up to him and try to pull him out but all it would do is suck me in so we put the 2 4x behind me with there winchs to mine so i could put him the 10 ft out of it an the 2 4x could pull me the 5ft out of it And of corise after we where all hi & dry some one said we should of had a pic of it It was some nice team work
