If the Can am still has the Visco Lok, I would never buy it. When the Quest, Traxter, and the original machines were built, front ends were always breaking and in the shop. That is what they were saying the problem was. Just my $.02.

Depending on what you are doing with the ATV, Hondas are tanks and bullet proof...... you just cant tear them up, the only weak spot they USED to have was the brakes in the rear,they were drum set up, now they are all sealed discs..............I have a Foreman 500 ES and just basicly use it for hunting and a few trips to this place every year http://wheelininthecountry.com/

Can Am all the way. The cat works well but has no resale. We get people trying to trade them all of the time.I am told the 2009 800R Can Am will beat the Cat.

I ended up buying this.... WAS DIRT CHEAP!!! I could not turn it down..
I needed something to plow snow on sidewalks... I have a grizzly 660 also and use it more for the trails...

For your plowing purpose, you bought the right machine. I have a Can Am outlander 650 xt and the only quad that outperforms it is a can am 800. I raced a brute force 750 and passed it twice. I ride in the swamp in south Florida and it outperforms anything on the market and visco lock rules. Just came back from quad meet in Doles, Ga. and can am ruled the racing pit. Everyone that watched said Their next quad will be a can am.

+1.... SkipSC is right on the money...
Go to any atv forum or your local mudhole... Canam will be dominating.
