I wanna wheeler!!

7 posts in this topic

I can't take it anymore...I need to buy a wheeler and with our little check from uncle sam coming now may be the time. I'm having a hard time finding stuff that isn't 5 or 6 years old but still asking a pretty penny for. These seem to hold their value really good, so my question is do you just buy a new/carryover instead of dealing with someone elses stuff? I have noticed that some of the "older" ones tend to be more loaded with options though. It will mainly be used at the cabin in Walker and some trails/ice fishing so it should last me a long time.

Buying used isn't such a bad deal. Some people take care of their things and others beat the livin' you know what out of them and still think they are worth the same as one that is comparable in the same model year. I don't see it that way. For example, there was a very nice clean atv and trailer just in the for sale section here, but it is now sold. I have seen other stuff that you can tell was stored outside, never cleaned, never maintained and ridden like it was a bulldozer. There are good deals if you look.

Aside from that, the hold-over models are a very good deal, IMO. They still have the warranty like new, and the prices are right. This year, it seems there are '07 models still available. This should bring a very good deal for the buyers.

All of the big name brands offer very competitive models if compared price-wise. Choose what you like, and try to get some seat time on a few different ones before you decide.

While you are there, get some riding gear and ride safe! smile

We bought a hold over 2up Polaris in January and saved $1500 off the original MSP. We had looked at one dealer and they weren't discounting squat so went to another and got a very good deal.

I got a 93 Yamaha off of Craig's List a couple of months ago for $1100. It had a gas leak and took me about $150 to get it running real good, but it's going great now for a total of $1250.

I bought a 94 Suzuki King Quad a few months back and it was the best investment that I have made in a long time. The price was right and it was well taken care of. I just put on a set of new tires this past week but I really do not have alot of money tyed up in it so Im happy... If I had the money I would have looked into purchasing a newer unit but for now this will get me by.

    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy  
    • I agree with purpleflloyd..........seasoning. I MIGHT use a grill brush twice a year that's it. 
    • Well first off you would probably need a permit but I would think 1000.00 should take care of it
