      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

New Ranger 6x6 info?

Recommended Posts

A stone mason Buddy is looking at a 6x6 for work, for stone work in new home construction area with lots of dirt/mud/etc. Hauls lots of stone mainly, but also just about anything. Uses a golf cart now (works awesome, actually!) but it won't cut it on the terrain of the new project. The homes are BIG (>25k sq ft.....) so the golf cart/utv will save time and laborers backs, and pay for itself. Looked at the Gator as well, but on paper it just doesn't stack up to the Ranger. He is thinking of putting a custom bed on it.

 

Just wondering if anybody has experience with the 6x6 800, and know of any particular issues this unit or the engine have. Good thing is it just may double as a hunting tool for us during duck season ;)

 

Thanks for any info, and also for any recommendations on good dealers in the metro area, or even just outside of metro. Tousley is very near to us, but I have only bought parts from them, not bikes.

I have had several Polaris models. Not the 6x6 but the platforms are all similar. The 800 is a decent engine for sure and it will ride nice.

 

That being said- if I were buying a sxs for working like that I would look long and hard at a Honda. They have always used better components than Polaris and have a much lower failure rate in my experience. Polaris to me always have issues with poorly designed or underbuilt components. 

Can Am would be a strong choice as well.

Don't overlook the Kawasaki Mule 4010.  We've had a couple of them around the compound for more than ten years (  the 3010) and they are rough, tough dependable rigs. Good sized box that will dump, lots of crawl when in low gear locked differential. We put a roof on one and a windshield and it will run around in the winter through reasonable conditions. Seldom a problem and even then nothing serious.

Worth a look.

The first quad I ever owned was a Kawasaki bayou 220 2 wd. That thing sat in a corn crib year round and the one year it got to something like -40f (1994?) I went out all bundled up and the thing popped right off. Kawasaki has awesome motors ime.

    • That good morning thread was for run amuck posts, some of the gods here just didn't get it. But the dump in sillytown is OK??? this is a prime example of why people left.
    • I've bought some of there products at runnings in Monticello, I like there stuff. Good customer service also.
    • And this thread is a prime example of threads getting derailed and off topic. lots of people also complained to staff about threads getting hijacked by the same users anybody have any other roast beef recipes to contribute?
    • I get that one too, seems like good equipment...
    • I get a catalog from LEM. Check them out!!
    • Del is partially correct. Don't know really if it had anything to do with his site. It had a whole lot to do with a few people all of a sudden coming into the cooking thread/ forum and deciding that group was having to much fun and criticizing the group for it. That good morning thread was just for that. 
    • Snag that stinks. I'm confused but your initial post though- you asked why do little penetration even if you hit the shoulder?  The answer is because you hit the shoulder!  (If I'm fact that's what happened). 6 inches is more than lots of shoulder hits get for penetration.  Plus with a big expandable you should expect less penetration (compared to a smaller diameter fixed head), particularly in a hit that contacts significant bone.    I'm not trying to give you heck here, just saying big expandable are not a good mix when one hits bone. Good luck- I hope you find him. 
    • I think we are both kinda right, I'm pretty positive that he saddled up and rode out of Sillytown at that time to never return. But he did come back to the cooking forum, a quick search confirms that. And when in somebodies house, ya gotta play by their rules. You have to adjust, just like in life. I have had the banhammer brought down on me a couple times and  have been a moderator. That takes some talent. lol I've said it before, Sillytown is the only place in my life that I deal with politics. I find it entertaining in the context here. There is not a single political post by me on my Facebook feed. You should lighten up a tad Del, then maybe I and others wouldn't pick on you as much. Enjoy the good eats coming up next week Del.
