Do Adults Use the Hisun 250's?

Recommended Posts

I am brand new to UTVing and never owned one before.  As a starter, I'm thinking of buying a Hisun 250 for several reasons.  First, it will exist in my existing cargo trailer and also in my garage.  Secondly, I'm contemplating just light trail riding on narrow trails so the 250's width would be ideal.

I'm only 5'7" but weigh nearly 200lbs (no diet advice please ?) so I'm wondering how a 250 would do both for fit and for power.  It seems almost everyone who discusses a 250 does in the context of kids.

Also,any thoughts of whether a Hisun Scout 250 is any better than a Strike?  As I said, I'm not planning on pushing the unit --just want to get out into the woods and desert.

Thanks a heap

The 250 is like 5.000, Plus the max cargo bed weight is 50 pounds, and only has a 3 gallon fuel capacity.

If i were you, for about 1,500 more, I'd go with the Kawasaki Mule 610.

  • 401cc air-cooled, four-stroke
  • Selectable 2WD or 4WD with dual-mode rear differential
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) w/ HI/LO ranges
  • Capable of hauling up to 400 lbs. (steel cargo bed) and towing 1,100 lbs.
  • A tight 10.8-foot turning radius for easy maneuvering
  • Backed by the industry leading Kawasaki Strong 3-Year Limited Warranty

Also the mule has a 4 and 1/4 gas tank, and 2 wd or 4wd. For 1,500 more id do it, but im sure u have different financial situation than me,

Gotta agree w. you that the Kawasaki is an all around better unit and value.  My problem isn't lack of funds to buy one, it's lack of space to store it.  My subdivision doesn't allow anything parked outside except 1 car.  So that means putting the UTV in the garage and the car outside in this wretched Arizona sun and heat ? or in a cargo trailer  I have a cargo trailer but its bed to ceiling height is only 66: - too short for the Mule or any "full" size UTV to fit in unless I remove the roll cage, which might be a pain every time I want to take transport it.

So I've been looking at Hisun 250's (both the Sector and the Strike), Trailmaster 300 and BMS Sniper 350. Of all these, I like the Sector the best . However, all 3 are short enough and narrow enough to fit in my 5X10 trailer.  Of course, I could buy another trailer; but thought I'd ease into UTVing and see how I like it.  Later I can move up in size for the UTV and trailer.

Well it's possible I could fit both UTV & car into garage (subdivision won't permit UTV in drive), but my trailer is not big enough for a full or mid-sized UTV. By the way Travis, Hisun 250'sector list for about  $4.8k. Not many used ones around.

      Ok so it’s brand new, first time taking it out it struggled going past 35ish on a slight incline and seems the “top speed” is only 45mph? Has anyone gotten theirs to go any faster? If so how? Is there a speed limiter/governor on these? I know, if I want speed buy something else, BUT I just want to be able to go 50mph because where we hunt we have to ride in and can’t unload anywhere that’s safe besides in town. Any help is appreciated!!

      Hi
       
      Need advice on a fuel filter.  This is a 2019 Coleman 550 Outfitter.  Manual said to change fuel filter.  Mine was assembled without a inline filter between the in tank fuel pump and the injector.  I called Coleman, they told it was supposed to have a fuel filter.  They sent me a metal inline filter and two clamps.  The fuel line has what looks like an aluminum outer cover.  I’m assuming the fuel line is a rubber one.  Before cutting the line I looked at the metal fuel filter to see the direction of flow.  Nothing marked on the filter.  I called Coleman.…. They couldn’t help me, even after speaking to a Tech rep.   It’s fuel injected, so I don’t want to screw this up.  Does anyone have any ideas?  Should I throw this filter away, and buy something else?  I have replaced plenty of fuel filters on lawn mowers etc, but all were clear plastic, with directional arrows.  Since this fuel injected, I’m thinking I must ypuse the special clamps, that require special pliers to tighten, and I might need a pressure capable filter?
       
      thanks

      Looking for the truck bed components 2018 Textron 900 Stampede.  There is limited information available for the assembly.  Might need a parts list.

      I have an American Landmaster LM500 with an old style snow plow hook-up.  Unfortunately, the mounting bracket broke & I lost the key part where the plow receiver connects to the cross bar with two pins.
      I checked with customer service & they said...

I believe they are sold as a kit though and they are not cheap, part # 15329. I’ve included a photo below since the web store does not have a photo for that part.

      I checked with our parts department and neither the kit or the components are available as that was the older style hook up system. The only option at this point would to have something manufactured. All of our current plows are either dual actuated or winch hookup so we would only have components for those models as of currently.
      In the picture, below, it would be item #5 (the one with the two mounting brackets that hold the pins that the plow mount latches onto) - not the top one in the picture, but the one below t hat.
      I have all the other parts - but the missing part is critical to mounting the plow.
      Does anyone happen to have an old one they could part with - or have an alternative solution?
      The rig wasn't optimal, as you had to use the winch to raise & lower the blade & manually adjust the angle.  It kept falling off when I was plowing snow - as the pins that hold it in only have a groove for a pin clip & they would often get knocked off & then the plow would hang down & you'd loose the pin - then it would get all messed up.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.  I am thinking of going to a welding shop to see if they can create something - but it will still have the same limitations as before - the pins are highly specific and not cheap
