      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.

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
