I’m posting this in case someone else has a Hisun in an environment that’s very dusty, muddy or wet and is looking for a method to protect the switch panel. My Sector is street driven daily with lots of dirt roads, dust, rain and mud. Plus I wash out the cab regularly. And while I’m sure that the switches are ok to get wet, over time with the grime I’m equally sure they’ll fail. So I fabbed up a clear plastic switch cover.
I’m on an island in Central America, so I didn’t have access to any sheet lexan or acrylic to make the cover itself, but I found one of those clear refrigerator food storage bins of about the right size at the local hardware and cannibalized it. I used a piece of 1/4” aluminum angle and a piece of stainless piano hinge that I had laying around in the shop to make the mount and the hinged attachment. It works well and it’s easy to slip open whenever I need to turn something on or off. Open at the bottom for cord connections should they be needed.
On a modest budget $10k or less trying to find a decent UTV. Most say for that price go Same Club Coleman is good for $7k or Lowes Axis UTV for $9k or Bass Pro Tracker 600 ATV $9k But seems many say stick with the Massimo because its beefier which is another affordable brand. I need in the next 2 months. Use to have a Kawasaki Prairie 450 it was great till it went in for its first service, so dumb to bring it in instead of doing service myself, never worked again. Now Need something soon to clear some flat land but rough terrain, logs on ground holes etc its the woods that drops off on edge so need it to haul some of our fat arsses back up if we go over the side to haul logs. Its probably 45 degree incline. Any thoughts??
New to the forum. New to UTVs. New to Electric motors. I just got a 2021 Hisun Sector E to help with moving stuff on my steep 5 acre wooded mountain patch. Plus I thought it would be fun on the gravel roads in the "neighborhood". Because we are remote and part time to the property, I didn't want the hassle of dumping out old gas or messing with oil and filters and all the usual maintenance of a ICE. But the biggest reason for me was the noise. I test drove the Axis utvs at Tractor Supply Co and they were LOUD. Seemed to ride rough too. If you want quiet, then electric is the way to go. But it does come with a high price tag. And all the electric models are still in their infancy. So its a bit of a gamble too. I bought the property for quiet. I wanted to keep it quiet.
I liked that the Hisun had the dry cell batteries so there is no maintenance of checking and adding water. I'm a little worried about their lifespan especially after one person's poor utube review about them. But the dealer said the company took that to heart so hopefully changes were made for better batteries. There were no Lithium battery options available anywhere near me. Polaris is supposed to have one later this year. I liked that the Hisun came standard with roof, windshield, winch and trailer hitch. I have had the sector for only one day and worked it and road it good. So far I have a big smile on my face. I wish there was a category for this model on the forum here. Meanwhile, maybe folks will share their insights/ experiences on this thread. I'd like to learn as much about the sector e as I can. There isn't much info in the owners manual.
While installing the High lifter lift kit in my 2015 Mule 4010 I nicked the piston, strut rod, the shiney rod in the middle that I cant remember the name (no coffee yet this morning). I knew the nick was deep enough to eventually tear up the seal and she'd let loose. Well 3 months or so down the road here we are, its blown out.
My question is how do I know which strut I have? I see 2 listed in the exploded 45023-1006 and the 45023-7503. The difference is the spring rate or K value. Seeing as I have high lifter springs does it matter the K value? And if that's the case can I use any of the 45023 prefix struts from various other models?
