Just received delivery of a 2024 AMP Pro. Thought I'd start a thread with my impressions as I use it and learn more. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of real-world usage information out there on this model. Hope this will help others as they research.
Intended Use Cases
Fire mitigation / slash removal from a 5 acre forested and well-gamble-oaked property. The previous owners thought as much about fire mitigation as I do about fashion: not much. Snow removal Stump pulling General hauling (rock, lumber, etc.) Weimaraner energy depletion. Wasn't an original use case, but a nice added bonus. Experiences So Far
Wasn't impressed that two of the bumpers on the underside of the bed where it sits upon the frame were missing. The metal on metal contact has damaged the powder coating and the frame. I expect a little better QC.
I've only put a few hours on it, so not a ton to report on usage. It isn't quiet; it's silent. I can't even detect an electric note from the motor. I removed (and subsequently replaced) the motor cover noticed that the motor is German and made by Schambuller. The motor controller is Italian and made by Dana TM4. Given the operating specs of both I found on the web, I suspect both are higher quality than the previous Navitas (which is supposed to be decent). The motor is rated at 25 hp and 71.5 lb-ft of torque. It feels very powerful. All the torque is delivered instantly, if desired.
The bed is huge and has an electric dump as standard. Great feature but would like it to go up a bit more. Probably not feasible from an engineering perspective, but I want and I need ;).
Power steering is nice, but vague. Probably common to many UTVs, but I am accustomed to more direct results from input. Plan early and plan often.
In our first full day of usage, we hauled about 1/2 as much slash as the entire rest of the year when I was doing it by hand cart. I may get fatter, but I'll also get more done. After a few days of usage, the battery meter has gone down by 1/10th.
Until next time...
I have a 2020 800 sx with about 16 hours on it. From day one I have heard a clunking noise from the front end going over bumps. Has anyone else experienced this? Also this past weekend while out riding I heard a noise that sounded like the dump bed bounced three or four different times, again has anyone experienced anything like that. Thanks, gary
Forgive me if this is in the wrong topic, but I’m in need of the front differential cases on a 1000 mxu. Ring gear bolts backed out and thrashed the cases.
The manufacturer idols back order and can’t seem to get in touch with Parts Boss. Anyone have an other sources that may carry parts?

I have a 2017 Vector 500 4x4 with electronic front locking diff. Used it about 30 miles ago, and the front axle won’t unlock. This makes steering very difficult and I’m sure it’s not good on front components either. Checked the connector and the wire and switch. Everything *looks* fine. Before I go digging into diff was wondering if anyone else experienced this. Indicator on dash shows an X indicating locked axle. 4x4 indicator for front axle just flashes. Can’t tell if I’m actually in four wheel drive. This thing is so underpowered it would t spin wheels anyway…

I just finished replacing my front and rear drive shafts. I drained and put new dif fluid in the rear dif. I went to the local dealer and they told me the fill capacity of the front and the transmission as I want to replcae that as well but they could not tell me how to access the fill. One how do I access the fill for front dif and 2 is the transmission fill the same as the rear dif? I don't see a dip stick or fill for the transmission but all in same area.
Also, anyone can suggest a good shop/service manual for this bike?
