OK Admin Guy, you've asked me enough times, so I guess I had better introduce myself. I live in the mountains of Central Pennsylvania but don't use my Rhino like others do. I had a Grizzley 600 for 10 years and put about 500 miles on it pushing Sprint Cars around the pits for our race team. Sprint Cars (World of Outlaws, etc) do not have a clutch and have to be pushed to the track, then "bump" started in gear. This requires a powerful ATV with a robust drivetrain. I also Ski Patrol at a local area and noticed prior to buying the Grizz that the Yamaha Big Bears they had were really bulletproof compared to the other (that will remain nameless but rhyme with Mawasaki!) seemed to be always being repaired. After ten years with a Grizz, and because of my aging knees, I decided to buy a Rhino (well used) and have used it in the same capacity. I have had to replace a few ball joints and such, but it has been generally good, and pushes the cars around easily. I have even taken it on a few long rides on the Snow Shoe Rails to Trails (see website). I have added a soft top, 27" tires, rear bumper, and a Ign module since I got it. I have huge trouble leaving my various vehicles stock, so there will probably be more mods to come. Don't let the lack of postings make you all think that I am not reading this site!
