Have a 1999 325 Sportsman, 1st I am not a hard rider mainly just putting out to the fish house in the winter, getting me and the dogs into our grouse hunting spots during our month long hunt, pulling in 3 deer last season, plus pulling a small trailer during yard work and woods clean up.

Things I like are it always started very easily, is economic on gas, very easy to steer in 2 wheel drive, nice medium size for riding on tight trails, tight turning radius, 2 to 4 wheel drive button, very good brakes.

Things I don’t like are low ground clearance so it gets stuck easier than other ATVs, when I switch from 4 wheel drive to 2 the right front stays locked in until I back up while moving the handle bars back and forth, having to hold in a yellow button while in reverse to get 4 wheel drive in reverse and a smooth reverse ride, 1500 pound winch is almost worthless except for raising and lowering the small plow, only one brake lever on the handle bars.

I bought it used with 325 miles on it. It came with a winch and a small plow. I did a little refurbish work on it, use the heck out of it and would do it again.

Well put Tink.

Also keep in mind this machine is no powerhouse but has enough to do the chores that Tink has mentioned.

The front right hub stick is an issue of set up and might just need an adjustment. I know there was a post a while back about this on the larger Sportsmans.

Nice machine....

I bought mine used 3 years ago and the only issue was overheating issue. Now fixed(Temp) see my previous post "Overheating"

I would agree 100% with Tink's post. (Although I do have a bigger wench on mine and seems to work well for docks and such)

I also use mine alot. At least 2-3 times a week year round...

Good luck.

    • well the seeds were planted four days ago and to my surprise when I checked them this morning they had already germinated. I will wait awhile before I tell you who was the winner.. Empirical testing at its best!
    • the make knives to cut them smaller!!!!!!!
    • Riiiiight... How come they didn't produce this document 8 years ago...
    • I would have started out at a young age, teaching them right from wrong. And that regardless of their gender tell them that I love them. When you make a mistake, you own up to it and be accountable. You do the crime, you do the time. And I that I still love them.
    • I thought you were AGAINST fake news now?
    • That's a good little tip.  I'll have to give it a try.  
    • I may not be an economist but it doesn't take a genius to realize that accumulating debt at the rate we are now accumulating it is a recipe for disaster. Debt is more than doubling every 8 years. There is no sign that debt accumulation will even slow down in the future and there is definitely no indication that we will start paying it down, unless you believe the Donald when he said he was going to eliminate debt in 8 years before he said he wasn't going to do that any more.   As Purple indicated above if you are OK with saddling your grandchildren with all of the debt that your and my generations accumulated and can sleep well at night then good for you. I think the party of accountability should start holding someone accountable but you and they just want to continue kicking the can down the road. What do you care? You won't live forever, right? Might as well let someone else worry about it.   Are all government policies rooted in fact? Everything that you or the party that you constantly support proposes is able to be defended by facts? What about all the morality laws, nothing based from religion is factual. Are abortion laws based on facts? How do you know if a woman should have ultimate control of their body? What are the facts that support it? How about gay rights laws? What facts do you have that support not allowing gay couples the same rights as heterosexual couples? What are the facts that support it being a bad idea that I buy a car or a 6 pack of beer on Sundays in Minnesota?   There are plenty of laws and Policies that are enacted by all types of politicians that are unable to be defended with facts.
    • Geez...we must fish the same lakes  Both of these posts above have become common now that "ice castling" has become the latest fad and everyone and their mother is on the ice.  There is an abnormally large % of those with the shiny new toy who chose only to save money on their generator, but spend as much as they possibly can on their truck and fish house.  I can spot them from a mile away...3-4 guys get out of the truck, they circle around the fish house a few times wondering how to get it lowered to the ice, then they finally figure it out, and 2 of the guys offload the residential home backup generator and carry it 100 yards away, 150 pulls later they get it fired up, and I only know because it's so loud it rattles the dishes in my cabinets.
