I am thinking about buying a 2014 Polaris Ranger 900 XP EPS for $9,000. It has 5,288 miles with 628 hours. Are the miles and hours too high? The unit appears to be in great shape and well taken care off? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
I acquired a Coleman UT400 just after Thanksgiving (2020) and find it to be quite different than most others seen on the web--the most visible difference is that the cylinder slants toward the rear placing the "hot spot" under the bed rather than under the seat (a significant improvement to my mind). THe curious prt of this is that neither Coleman nor Hisun seem to acknowledge this major design change. In fact the Owner's manual supplied with the vehicle appears tp haqve been written for a completely different unit--showing the ignition and light switches mounted in the dash (they are stalk mounted on the steering column on mine) and indicates that to change the spark plug requires removing the seat (the cylinder head and plug are under the bed on mine):
I wrote to Coleman and they sent me a what is supposed to be the most recent "UT400-5" manual which is still wrong about 90%+ of the vehicle. Neither the Coleman or Hisun websites are of any use as their content provides no photos and very little information about maintenance or the engine/drive train in general.
Is anyone aware of when these changes were made, or of any sites offering info re: this latest mode? Currently I'm battling shift cable adjustment to find better and more consistent reverse gear selection.
Mine also differs in that the parking brake is a single caliper and disc mounted on the rear differential pinion shaft (this seems to be a "5 brake" configuration I have found reference to.
Overall it seems well designed and manufactured--the chassis welds are as nice as you could ask for and the castings and machining are top notch.
Any information or suggestions as to where to look would be appreciated...
2007 Mule 610, owned for 8 yrs and valves were ticking when I got it and had them adjusted twice and this is when plugs began to foul. I replaced battery (used battery I had on hand) a yr ago and didn't foul a plug for some time and replaced batter (new) with a bigger lawn mower type battery again a month ago and have fouled two plug since. Had carb cleaned and valves adjusted and still fouls plugs way to often. Friend has a mule just like mine and his does same thing. Have read this is a common problem with 610 mule. Any help or suggestions would be welcomed. Thanks and stay healthy.
So my wife surprised me with a Cub Cadet 500 Challenger. It was used, but in great shape. I have been wanting one for my VERY hilly farm up here in the Oregon Coast Range.
It ran awesome until I hitched a lightweight road grader on and worked up the gravel of my private road: a hilly, 1/4 mile road that needs constant upkeep because of the rain. It started dogging-out and wouldn’t idle. Had it in the shop and was repaired. They told me there needed a spark plug change.
Now I’m having issues getting it into reverse. I might add, when I first drove it, I was befuddled that it had no clutch! Keep in mind I had nothing to go on before hand. My wife -- very loveingly -- just bought it and had it delivered one day a few months back.
Any help provided will be humbly and greatly appreciated my 4-wheeling friends.
