    Default Mid size Ranger

    So I stopped into the local dealer this weekend to get some snow machine parts and noticed a smaller sized Ranger on the floor. I took a closer look at it and it was a mid sized Ranger 800. Any one have any first hand use of one of these machines. Any pluses or minuses to this rig?

    This must be the RZR line. They came out a few years ago, fairly popular for trail riding, not a lot of cargo room for hunting but do-able.

    There is a faster way off the mountain, might hurt a little though.

    Nope not the RZRs the same as a regular Ranger but smaller. Kinda like the 500 size I guess...

    The mid-sized Ranger 800 is only 2 inches narrower and 6 inches shorter than the full sized 2012 Ranger 800 full size. Keep in mind, the 2013 Ranger 900 is an additional 2 inches longer than the Ranger 800. The mid-sized Ranger is only 150 lbs. lighter than the full sized and still weighs in at over 1000 pounds.

    I don't think there is enough of a difference to justify getting the smaller Ranger. If there was a significant difference, perhaps, but there isn't. The only difference of mention is the price and it's just $1100. For that small of a difference, it should not be a real factor.

    Another potential issue is the availability of parts, accessories, and upgrades. The mid sized is less popular thus making parts less available.

    My disclaimer is that I do not own a mid-size nor do I know anyone who does.
