I Recently purchased a Massimo T-Boss 550F last fall with their 60" snow thrower because I couldn't find a decent UTV here in Southern Ontario; nothing in stock anywhere. I am having really bad buyer's remorse after spending time on it and reading all the bad online reviews. The company boasts the fact that it is built in Texas, USA, so I was hoping to do the right thing by buying, "Made In North America" but it is still Chinese Junk, assembled in the USA. and I am starting to realize that I am going to have a lot of difficulty getting parts for this thing; I can't even get an oil filter, finally bought a "Hisun" filter and hope it fits. i busted the shear pins in the snow thrower and can't find replacements for that either. The thing is so hard to change gears most of the time; I am terrified I am going to wreck something. The place I purchased it from is absolutely useless. Can I adjust something myself? Anyone out there have this problem and have some advice (besides selling it and buying a good brand)?
Wiring harness is a mess has anyone ever tore it all out and only put in the basics. Power ,ignition ,starter, stator and regulatorBy Hisun .500
So my hisun 500 is tore up and all the wiring is wasted i was wondering can i pull out all the wiring and just put in the. Basics .please help
My experience was mostly good. Pieces of the process left me shaking my head (#2 and #3).
1. Tranny and Hydraulic filters are easy to replace. On the first service (50 hours), you replace the filters, not the fluid. There is a youtube video out there that shows step by step. One word of caution, there are 2 places that you need to add fluid (UDT2) back for what was lost in the filter change. One is directly in front of the filters, under the dump bed. This is the tranny fill. The other is under the front passenger seat.
2. Oil filter ... what a PITA. Cannot believe that the engineers could not have made this a bit easier to get to. Filter is behind the battery. If you are a large fellow, you are going to have issues getting to it. Removing the skid plate underneath helps (loosen with filter wrench), but getting your hand in there is even harder than from the battery.
3. Fuel filter. I tried to get the bowl loose to replace the element. I have not had any luck yet. It is so tight from the factory. I was cranking on it so hard I thought I was going to break something. So, I decided to call the dealer and ask if there was a trick. They said there is no trick. Crank on it until it comes loose. Lefty loosey / counter clockwise. So, I will do that this evening.
4. Air filter. Easy.
5. Grease zerts. I only was able to find zerts at the control arms. 6 on the front, 8 on the back. Anyone else know of any other zerts?
Contemplating getting the service manual. $100 seems retarded to me. But might be worth it.
Is there a wire harness I am missing for plug and play of a reverse light which can be turned on when placing in reverse. My understanding is Polaris is making the Bobcat UTVs and I see a lot of posts and videos out there of Polaris Ranger guys removing a dust cap and being able to plug an LED light right into an existing unused wire harness that when they place the UTV in reverse the light automatically turns on with no additional wiring.

Here I am showing our Green Scout electric all-terrain vehicle.
All-terrain vehicle 6 wheeled, electric, side-turning. Rides, jumps, dances, swims, but does not fly. The drive is permanent (but you can turn off any wheel arbitrarily through the controller). The power of each wheel is 3 kW at its peak, the total power is 18 kW. Speed up to 60 km / h. Since the all-terrain vehicle is electric, it starts from a place quickly, drives silently (well, of course, the sound from tires and shock absorbers does not disappear).
The idea of creating such an all-terrain vehicle came after the experience of operating the Argo all-terrain vehicle. The main disadvantages of the wheeled side-turning all-terrain vehicle are low ground clearance, lack of suspension. To get high ground clearance and suspension, there are two outputs on mini all-terrain vehicles - either electric drive or hydraulic. The hydraulics had to be excluded, since at temperatures below -30C it does not work, plus it always flows. As a result, we settled on an electric transmission. Each wheel is a motor-wheel. Naturally, the motor-wheels were being finalized to be able to be installed on an all-terrain vehicle and to be able to swim. The battery is iron-phosphate, all information on the battery, the charge is displayed on the smartphone. Control of the all-terrain vehicle through the on-board computer. Bicycle handlebar controls. Braking either with the sides through a turn of the steering wheel, or with the gas pedal of all wheels at once.
