Sportsman Price ?

20 posts in this topic

A friend of mine is going througd a devorce and is selling a 2004 polaris sportsman 500 HO. It has 2000 miles and is in good condition. I was wondering what everyone would think is a good price would be?

Just the machine? does it have any additions? I think that would give someone a better idea on how to price it.

Right now a bone stock SP500 HO, 2004 with 2K miles would bring in the ballpark of $3-3500 (this is a rough guess). It might be far less considering that a guy can purchase a new/carry over SP500 for as low as $5200.

Wonder if there's any limitations on this deal. Definitely trying to move machines.

The sign on the store says 2008 Sportsman 800 blowout deals for around $6500 ( I can't remember the exact price). Then below that it says "buy one atv get another for 1/2 price".

I would have to believe that you pay full MSRP on a 800 or 850 and maybe get something like a Phoenix or Predator 90 half price.

I wondered if there was a catch to this, but I'm not interested in popo's, so no need to find out.

A IQ is a sled not a wheeler isnt it?

I was wondering the same thing? I think that was the letters wrote on the sign in the dealers window.

The deal is buy a Polaris at FULL price and recieve a predator 90 cc free. This info is from a dealer and it's not that great of a deal. There are better deals...you can get pretty good deals on discounted prices on 08. Sportsman 500-for only $5499 EFI

If you can swing it, go with a new 500. That way you don't have to deal with someone else's headache and you'll get the warranty. Resale will also be higher when it comes time to upgrade. I think I've seen carry over carb models around $5200 in the past, might be able to work a better deal with dealers getting desperate.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
