I own a 04 H Rancher(I love it), and 06 H Rincon (680). I purchased the Rincon for pulling elk out of the mtns. The Rancher just would not quite pull a big bull. The Rincon is no better, it is geared to high, no low range, has no lugging power, in ES or Auto. It also has no EB going down hill. I need lugging power. I like the smaller ATV's cause of handling, etc. I love the Honda's and love the Rincon, except! My question....Is the new Polaris Sportsman 550(42hp) big enough or would you recomend the 850 XP(70hp). Am considering the Yamaha 700. Any imput on other brands is appreciated. I want my ATV to spin the wheels before the engine kills!
Also would like to trade an elk hunt at my cabin, or a pheasant hunt for a moose hunt in Alaska.
