Whats the difference in the model years for T2 troopers?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking at getting a UTV for hunting, and trail riding. I like the Polaris ranger, but have heard of alot of problems with the belt on the cvt. The Trooper T2 looks real good also, but what's the difference in model years? Should I get a used one with low hours, or save for a new one? Is there any way to get more than 2 people in one? I hunt in South Dakota 8 days a year for vacation, and would like to be able to carry 2 or 3 other guys. I don't want a T4, it seems to long for trail riding in the East, which is what I want to do most of the time.

Get the lastest/newest you can find. There has been upgrades and changes from the first 50, I have one of the first 50, as most changes have been for the better. Don't get an older one unless you get a really good price because you will have to do a few mods. Good luck! I am too lazy to mention all the changes.

      Got a 2012 Bennche Bighorn 700x (I believe) from a neighbor that had it sitting in his yard undisturbed for over 2 years.  We pulled it across the road to my house with the transmission stuck in low.  I tinkered and discovered the fan gear assembly had frozen up from not being used, specifically the part that slides/turns in the housing.  After freeing that up, the transmission shifts fine.  I put a fresh battery on it and discovered 12.2 volts going to the solenoid, and with the key in the on position, 12 .2 volts on the starter side of the solenoid without turning the key to the crank position.  I discovered at the starter the same results of a constant 12.2 volts in the on position.  Cranking, the voltage on the starter side of the solenoid and at the starter drops to 11.72v.  Shouldn't there not be any voltage on the other side of the solenoid  or at the starter if the key is not in the crank position?  And with the constant voltage at the starter and it not turning, isn't it safe to assume the starter is frozen/burned out?

      For the most part I love my Polaris 1000 crew Northstar, but hate the doors, especially in windy weather or when parked on a sloping grade.  Getting in and out of the vehicle and unloading equipment can be a real pain, as the doors tend to slam into me constantly.  Has  anybody installed door checks from a car.  If so, please let me know what make and model car door checks to get, and how much modification is needed to make them fit and function. 
      Thanks in advance for any information.

      2017 Polaris 900s RZR, new ignition switch but no power to gauge cluster and no power to starter. I have power to relay when ignition switch is turned to start position. Does this indecate a bad ECM?

      I live on 11 acres that demands a bit of maintenance, and co-own a large farm a couple of hours away that I hunt on (professionals do the farming).   My mowing/brush control/trail maintenance duties are handled by a 57" rough cut mower (Kunz brand), and I also drag logs and pull sprayers and seeders for food plots and such.
      I've been using a  pair of ATV's for decades to handle this work - a 750 for when I need real power (or need both machines at the same time when I have help) and a 500 cc with fixed rear axle for most duties.

      Some of the places I need to work are VERY rough, and very three-dimensional, with steep ups and downs and some side-hilling I've learned the hard way not to try with my independent rear suspension 750, but handle with ease with my fixed rear suspension 500.

      I've decided I want to sell the 750 and replace it with a UTV that I hope to use as my main workhorse.  If anyone makes a working UTV that fits my specs that's what I'm gonna do.  This is an all-work machine, I don't do any recreational riding so don't care about things like top speed.

      So looking for advice on what models might handle what I'm looking for:

      Gotta have:
      2 passenger (1 row)
      selectable 4wd
      Power steering
      Selectable gearing (not CVT)
      Power-assisted dump bed
      Engine cooling adequate for all-day slow-speed work in the summertime.  Like towing a 700lb mower at 4mph all day in 100° weather)
      Beefy tow rating, including tonque weight.  Nobody ever mentions tongue weight because that exposes how crappy independent rear suspension is for towing safely in rough terrain.

      Really want:
      Selectable locking diff
      Fixed rear axle (Isolates tongue weight from rear suspension.  Holds more stable & consistent center of gravity than IRS over side-slopes and other complex terrain, and keeps geometry and suspension response consistent over wide range of tongue-weight of towed loads)
      Slow speed cruise control (Factory option or aftermarket, covering at least 4mph - 10mph. For calibrated spraying and controlled mowing speed.
      Muffler designed for quiet operation for comfortable all-day use, and to minimize disturbance for getting to hunting grounds.  Not concerned about normal motor noise, but don't want something specifically piped to "sound fun".

      Any advice on brands or models I'm most likely to have luck with?
