2008 Rhino 700 FI Auto. 4x4 Ducks Unlimited Edition

08Rhino700_ducks_3_2a3ee0aa.jpg

Key Features:

The Ducks Unlimited Edition gets Advantage Max-4™ High Definition Camouflage, dealer-installed windshield and sun top.

Comfortable interior with automotive-type controls: A new steering wheel, left-side foot brake pedal/right-side foot accelerator pedal, center-mounted console shifter and parking brake lever, turn-to-start ignition switch, indicator lights and 12-volt accessory outlet render the Rhino totally user-friendly.

686cc liquid-/oil-cooled, four-stroke engine and light weight add up to an excellent power-to-weight ratio and great performance.

Industry-exclusive fully automatic Ultramatic® transmission with dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive and reverse is the most advanced drive system available. Maintaining constant belt tension reduces wear, gives instant throttle response and provides industry-exclusive all-wheel downhill engine braking

Industry-exclusive three-position On-Command® In/Out 4WD feature lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD—all with the simple push of a button.

Fully independent four-wheel suspension: Double wishbones front and rear deliver 7.3 inches of wheel travel and 12.1 inches of ground clearance; five-way preload-adjustable shocks provide maximum tire contact and amazing comfort while navigating rough terrain.

Thick bucket seats and that great long-travel suspension system work together to provide the smoothest ride in the industry.

New for 2008:

All-new 686cc engine puts out plenty of broadband power. New four-valve head with 9.2:1 compression bumps power and efficiency.

Electronic fuel injection ensures peak performance in nearly all conditions and elevations, along with instantaneous cold starts.

Tough, blow-molded doors keep mud, water and dirt on the trail where they belong.

New four-wheel disc brakes provide unsurpassed stopping power, and a new parking brake is super convenient.

Cool, comfortable new steering wheel and new passenger grab handles.

Now with two cup holders for even greater creature comfort.

New underhood tool-free air filter is a snap to service.

CV joint protectors for long, trouble-free life.

Engine:

An all-new fuel-injected 686cc engine puts out plenty of broadband power, along with reduced noise and vibration.

Aluminum cylinder with 102mm ceramic-composite lined bore reduces weight and enhances cooling and reliability.

Forged aluminum piston with increased compression means more performance and durability.

New, four-valve head with roller rocker arms reduces friction and weight.

Heavy-duty crankshaft with large pin diameters increases durability and running smoothness.

41mm throttle body with Idle Speed Control System provides instant cold starts and great performance at nearly any altitude.

Big new radiator with cooling fan and oil cooler means more cooling capacity and durability.

All-stainless steel exhaust system with aluminum heat shields and screen-type spark arrestor lets the engine live up to its full power potential while it keeps things quiet.

New air filter design: Underhood location reduces intake noise, larger element increases service life approximately three times—and no tools are needed for maintenance.

Drivetrain:

Improved Ultramatic® automatic transmission uses a larger, 150mm centrifugal clutch and six-shoe design for increased durability. Lower gear ratios provide more low-end response and smoother delivery, and a new low-ratio gear-driven reverse gives more backing-up power too. A strengthened drive belt handles the new engine’s power.

Dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive with reverse taps into more pulling power in low and more performance in high.

Console-mounted dual-range (H/L/N/R) shift lever.

Sealed drive case keeps out water and debris, and a hand-operated side cover drain lets out what little gets in.

Specially designed drive system air intake vent helps prevent overheating and keeps water and mud from entering the drive case.

Chassis/Suspension:

Steel frame is lightweight and features outstanding durability with superior rigidity for superb handling.

Light, responsive rack-and-pinion steering features a fully sealed steering column and double U-jointed steering linkage for smooth operation and class-leading turning radius—even in 4WD.

12.1-inch ground clearance delivers maximum underbelly protection while enhancing terrainability.

Low-maintenance front shaft drive features gear case and electronic servo-activated 2WD/4WD/Diff Lock via the On-Command® system. Direct rear shaft drive eliminates the U-joint for greater durability and more efficient power transfer at all rpm.

Big axles and CV joints—72.6mm joints and 21mm front axles—deal with the new engine’s power. Tough new boot CV boot covers resist tearing, and new A-arm protectors prevent debris from damaging the CV boots.

Standard center-mounted, heavy-duty 2-inch receiver-style hitch can tow over 1,200 pounds.

Stamped steel dump bed is rated to haul 400 pounds of gear, with a latch that opens from either side.

Aggressive Maxxis tires offer great traction, longer life and a comfortable ride.

Additional Features:

New digital instrument panel incorporates self-diagnostic capabilities for easy troubleshooting. A new voltage meter allows easy monitoring of battery condition, and a new hourmeter keeps track of engine running hours for accurate service intervals.

Integrated, easy-to-read fuel gauge makes it easy to keep track of your fuel supply.

Large, specially designed seats are extra plush and supportive for all-day driver and passenger comfort.

Operator and passenger seat belts.

Dual 30-watt multi-reflector Krypton bulb headlights with high/low beams feature stylishly sleek cat-eye design; dual 5-watt/21-watt tail/brake lights.

Large, 7.9-gallon fuel tank for long rides.

Maintenance-free battery provides power, even in cold weather.

Built in Newnan, GA, USA.

      Just bought a Bad Boy Bandit 750. Need to change the oil and filter. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm pretty sure this a Hisun 750 Sector even though it says it's a Bad Boy. I'll include pics soon.

      Hey guys! Newbie here. I'm an old man who's better with plowing a mule (4-legged kind) than these newfangled beasts. I, and a friend of mine, just bought new Coleman sxs and are having to finish the assembly. I've been reading on this site and I'm falling on the mercy of you experts. The only way I'm an expert is that an "ex" is a has been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure. LOL First off, the 2 buggies have no ignition switches. They seem to mount on the dash, not the opening in the steering wheel shaft cover, so we ordered new ones that are supposed to fit. They are 8 inches long, and have a 4-wired white plugin which is slightly rectangled when looking at the end of the plug. The trouble is there's nothing to plug into. There is a three-wire grey plug close enough to reach the four-wire plug, but of course, they are not compatible. 
      Secondly, the blinker, light, ect. unit on steering wheel just spins around when touched. I see no way in heaven or earth to secure it. I've looked at a diagram on the Powersports site, but can't detect how it mounted. Fellows I'd be so grateful for any help with this. Me and my mule will even plow your garden for free, for your help. LOL

      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...

      Hy (pronounce he), just bought a Hisun Sector E1.
      I'll be using it to haul logs and stuff in the Sangre de Cristo mountains.

      I have a Bennche 700 EFI Bighorn. I’ve recently been unable to get it to start. After a little troubleshooting I realized my fuel pump was not pumping fuel. This weekend I emptied the gas and replaced it with new. I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter and fuel injector. I also replaced the battery, spark plug and made sure all my fuses and relays were good. I have confirmed that the float on the fuel pump is not obstructed. The UTV is about 12 years old and has less than 100 hours on it. It has not run in over a year.  Not sure whats going on?!? After doing a little reading I'm leaning towards it being an issue with the ECU or perhaps a faulty wire in the wiring harness. Anyone have any ideas on where to start looking or what I could be dealing with? Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!
