Any thoughts on these?

Great suspension, probably the best on any of the utv's out.

But they are slow, that's their only down fall. If you're not concerned with the dunes or racing it will be fine and has decent enough power.

I'd try and get him lower on the price though.

it must have been in invisible ink i don't see anything :)
i have been around several different brands in the last couple of years
honestly i think they are all nice machine but prices are what scares me.
fast, slow, great suspension they will all break down or end up on their tops and sides.i'm always on the end of the tail poking along in a old rough riding rhino but my winch cables fits them all :lol:
if the price is right parts are there and it fits your riding is what i look at.
just my two pennies worth

No, it wouldn't be that slow. They are decently fast, just not in the same league as their X or the other brands any longer.

It will be considerable faster and an upgrade coming form a Joyner 650, the only reason I wouldn't consider a basic Wildcat is I like top end speed, here in AZ there are a lot of Desert roads you can really get moving on.

These machines are no where near the same class as even the Wildcat 1000. The Wildcat is a big suspension sxs meant for whoops and flying across terrain.

The others are small and low power machines meant for trail ridding.

If you're looking for something small and not worried about power at all then the above machines will work but if you are cross shopping these tow completely different machines I think you have to really look at what kind of ridding you'll be doing and pick the right one.
