08 Grizzly 700 vs King Quad 750

Recommended Posts

Thoughts and Opinions either way. I would probably use it a lot for ice fishing and hunting along with some trail riding and some mudding (who can resist) and some general use around the house like plowing and such.

Thanks in advance

i was in the same dilemma last year and went king quad only because of the gas tank location and pull start and the king shifting just topped it off

Both great wheelers! The Kingquad has a third headlight,parking brake, and rear sealed wet brakes. The Grizzly has a little more ground clearance,a park selection on the shifter,and a bigger racks. My choice would be the Suzuki as the third headlight is nice and the rear brakes system is top notch. Can't go wrong either way.

Its honestly a toss up. I have ridden both machines and I would probably buy the KQ. I like how the machine handles and performs. The Grizz is a great machine as well. It is almost like comparing the same machines

I went through the same issue a few years ago with the King Quad 700 and Grizzly 660.

I went with the Kingquad and my buddy got the Grizzly. I really like my Kingquad, it has a great "sporty" feel to it. I would probably still go with the KQ.

I'd pick the Grizz but I'd get a 550. The 700 are nice but I found the size and feel of the 550 Awesome. The power is still there when you need it and when I rode the 700 and 550 back to back I couldn't even tell you the difference. The only difference I can tell you is the price tag. Go test drive a 550 Grizz. Its good for everything you need and more plus with the reliability.

Depends on how much power you really need. Me personally would never buy anything less than a 700

That's funny because it was not that long ago when a 500 was considered the biggest machine. Interesting how perceptions change. There really isnt anything a 700 can do that a 500 or even a 400 cannot. It just may do it more effectively.

I currently own a KQ750. Love the thing to death. Tons of power, speed when I want it, and all that other good stuff. But it has its downsides. The footwells/footpegs are junk, uncomfortable compared to the Grizz. I love the gauges and the 3rd headlight.

My close friend has a 08 grizz, sweet machine. The dang power steering is really nice, but I didn't need it, and I don't think I will until i'm a little older. But the gauges on there are in a weird spot, and I'm not a huge fan of the handlebars.

All in all, Ride them both, and whatever one you like, is the one. You'll find things that you like and dislike about both.

I do remember the days when a 500 was considered big. I have been on a 500 before where I was running out of power on a hill climb, thats pretty darn scarry and why I choose to have more power. No replacement for displacement!

Go with the Yamaha.When we fished up north this winter we had a Kingquad and a Yamaha with us. It was cold (-20)and the Kingquad would never start without a jump.

    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
