Need a little help/advice

I am looking at buying a new 4x4 quad. Originally I was going to go with a Polaris 550 or 800 but while at the "quad store" I was turned on to a Kawasaki Brute Force 750. Does anyone have any experience with this type of quad. Good or Bad please tell all. Thanks for the help.

I don't have any experience, but you could try thumpertalk.com or other online sources for comparisons.

I havent had any experience with the 750s...But my buddy has a 07 Praire 360. And it is one tough little quad. It has taken ALOT of abuse. It was completely sunk, flipped mutiple times. overloaded. and it still runs like a champ. I also have a Kawisaki. but a KFX450R race quad. I love it...Its a fast, tough, reliable machine. I highly recommend a Kawisaki...but thats just me lol.

I dont think I am going to be able to help at all, I have found that each dealer has their preference. The last time I went in, I asked the service Tech, he came back to me with the CAM AM as his choice, it was the one that came back the least amount for warranty work. The sales guy was trying to sell me a polaris, he had the Suzukis and kalwaskis as well. So.. I am NO HELP, but I guess my point is, NOR ARE THE SALESMAN, it is like asking which tuner to run

Isnt it cheaper now???

A Nice Christmas gift you know..

Looking into this a bit more, I learned that the can ams create more power for the same Cubic Inch. But if it were me, I most likely do the polaris..Just becasue I am a hard person to convince otherwise..

Can Am has a ton of power and are really nice handling. The Polaris is close in power and a bit cheaper. I have owned the Polaris 800 and it is bad ***, drove the Can Am 800 and I think it handles better, but the Polaris is more comfortable to me.

Drive one of each that you are concidering before you buy.
