Went for a putt few days ago and it was awesome! Weather was great with 4-8 inches of fresh snow, very cool. Really like the ruggedness and performance of this Quad. Been kindly named the, "Tow Truck"! My Buddy has a wolverine 450 4×4, nice Quad, and Fourtrax 450 also, I usually ride last incase either one gets stuck. Trails we ride are very tight and misleading with a lot of water crossings. All Good, plus I carry the straps n winch. Priced used machines before I bought mine and glad I paid a bit more for mine. Getting frigid up here and be fun down there this weekend. Another day of winter fun!
