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.

      Hi y'all, 
      I am looking to buy a 2018 Textron EV or a new 2020 Tracker EV. Tracker is the new name of Textron. I'm having trouble finding a snow plow mount and kit. I want to pull the trigger and buy one but I have to have a snow plow to make it worthwhile. Any of you have the EV with a snowplow or know which mount works? Front or center mount? Thanks!

      New to this. I am looking to pick up a used side by side for our property. It is a little over 18 acres, 15 of which are woods. I need something with a good hydraulic bed. It will be used primarily for chores and hauling wood on the property. I’ve looked at Polaris and Kubota (diesel). Reliability is key as is cost. Is the 570 large enough for hilly woods? Plan to spend around $6000 . Also, how many hours is too many?  Thanks

      I'm working on a 2005 Cub Cadet side by side and I'm trying to remove the front two axles.  I have a slide hammer puller on the inner joint and with all my strength they will not budge.   Anyone have the same issues and is there something I'm missing or a trick of some sort to pull these out?   Any suggestions please and thank you.
