Initial impressions of new rhino 450

First let me mention that it has the full hard cab (Curtis). It sure is noisy. Nothing that I won't get used to but pretty loud in there. Secondly, I have never been in a utv til now and never had an auto belt drive machine. It takes a bit of rpms to get it moving. You can't ease into it. I first thought I had something dragging or it was still strapped to the trailer. Lastly it seems to be really low geared. Any other 450 owners care to help me out? Would be appreciated.

you will get used to the belt drive, make sure the parking brake is off, this happens all the time.

you cannnot ride the belt like you can an ATV clutch, you will burn it up, you need to get it going then ease off the throttle some. for going real slow, use LOW range
