    It's basically a polaris badged with the craftsman name. I think it's a 500cc with a few changes in the plastic over the traditional polaris parts.

    I believe it's a 350, not a 500. I checked it out just for the heck of it and had a hard time holding back the laughter!

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

    I seen that four-wheeler as well when I was at Sears the other day. It's less than a 300cc engine. I believe it was like a 260cc or something right around there.

    Default not polaris

    I looked at one and it is definatly not polaris. I ride polaris and there is no comparison. The Craftsman 4 weeler looks to me to be a piece of crap. Poor suspension, low power, and cheep tires. Plus the salesman told me it does not even come with the lifetime guarantee.

    Default Craftsman NOT!

    I looked it over thoroughly. The salesman told me it is definitely, oh Lordy here we go again, Chinese made. For five grand, the price quoted me, I'd rather have the Yamaha Bruin, as I believe it's called. The "Craftsman" looked kind of cheap and I wonder about parts and service even from Sears.

    Probably more of a yard work machine than an outdoorsman machine.

    Sears seems to do that with a lot of their products. I know all of their chain saws, and some other power tools like weedeaters, etc. are made by Poulan.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Cool Craftsman rocks

    It's actually a .155 (yes, that's point one five five for you old fogies) liter turbocharged monster with a NOS option. I put 32" Swamp Doggs with a 10" lift and, as you can see, a helluva snorkel system. Here is an image from last weekends ride with one.
