Hi there and welcome.

first off, i just looked on the Cub cadet website, and they have no UTV by the name of  Commander. Do you perhaps mean Can Am commander?

I'm also seriuosly considering the Challenger because of the features that are standard equipment and the price. The only accessories that I would be adding would be the rear window, hard upper doors, and perhaps the power steering. I would be looking at around 11,500 for it. I would have a hard time justifying spending 16K+ for a more mainstream machine. I would be barging it over to an island in Puget Sound for general transportation use around the island on dirt roads. Speed limit is 15mph on the island so top end isn't an issue. Occasional beach use. Nothing very strenuous, except for a long fairly steep hill coming up from the marina. The salt air and rain/humidity is hard on everything there (thus the hard cab requirement).
Obviously, reliability is a major concern. The biggest majority of reviews I have seen have been very negative. Is there anyone that has positive feedback?

Ruled out Cub Cadet. Not a good endorsement by the local dealer. He told me that he couldn't recommend the Challenger for use in the island environment. He said he had seen a lot of issues with the electrical system due to salt air corrosion. I told him I would be willing to fill all the connectors with dialectric grease to prevent this. He said he would rather lose the sale than sell it to me. This is astounding to me because there are many other much more electrical intensive vehicles on the island than this. Obviously, he feels that the Cub Cadet is vastly inferior to others.
Oh well, goodbye Cub; hello, Polaris.

      I have a 2018 750 challenger, the cooling fan started running all of the time, even with ignition switch off, it will run till it kills the battery.  I've checked the sensor on bottom of radiator, it's an open circuit no continuity, I found 2 more sensors on top of engine at coolant hose, was able to check 1 of those and it's an open switch as well. I can disconnect all 3 sensors and fan still runs. Only way to kill fan is to unplug it just back from fan motor in wiring harness. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      I have an issue with my sector crew 750
       2017 EFI
      Starter engages and spins but does not turn the engine over. Does this mean a bad starter clutch. The starter is new. I started the pull of the cover where the starter clutch is located but cannot get to the back bottom bolts.
       
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      I'm new with forums and rtvs so let me pre-apologize if i do or say something wrong.  
      I bought a used 2014 1140 cpx, 350 hours.  Its been heavily modified.  Back seat removed and a heavy duty bed added etc.  I call it Franken-Kubota.
      I would love any and all advice or "heads up" specific to this model.
      I need to do a general service, fluids and filters.  I'm confused, are there 3 different hydraulic fluid filters and 1 engine oil filter......etc etc.
      I'd like to use Kubota parts, any suggestions other than dealer?
      I just bought a new Kubota tractor so I'm all in!
      Many thx

      I generally use my challenger for light duty misc. use, and for plowing. The one thing I dislike about this machine is the difficulty in shifting. I've had it the shop and they adjusted the shifting lever, but I still have issues. Some times it shifts ok, but the problem is it is hard to get it to move the lever from high to reverse or low to high or from any gear to the other. Seems I always have to accelerate a little to get it to engage to what gear I need it to go to. This is definitely not normal.
