get the full

A 1/2 windshield will be next for this fall. thanks jim

Get the full windshield. If you ever decide to put a radio or plow on, you will kick your self for not getting the full. If you ever cruise on back county roads your eyes tear up because the machine is so fast..

You wont hear the radio as well with the wind and motor. The windshield also help from the mud getting the speakers and radio from getting caked with mud. The radio and console cost almost 900.00. you want to protect it also when towing it..

Hello everybody! I am in the process of buying a new toy but I can't make up my mind. A friend of mine has a rzr and loves it but I recently got a chance to test drive an 850i but only for about 2 minutes and loved it. My problem is I want to make sure its what I need. I hunt during the fall and winter months but when summer hits its all about hitting the trails! Mostly backwoods full of twists turns and mud. I want to know your opinion on how the gator will do for the type of riding and if there are any issues with these machines. I appreciate any and all responses.

I love my RSX...it tops out at 55mph which is about the only down side...but if you are riding trails then it is plenty...the torque is awesome for the trails...I wish the after market would catch up with the machines...it know it coming but its slow...Its a great machine...

Thanks for the reply mountaineer! How does it do in mud and water? Idk where the intakes are on the Deere and was wandering how deep it can go. I don't want a submarine by no means but we do cross creeks here and there on our outings.

If you can afford the Deer get it. I was in your spot but after research the razor is build on a ATV frame. This deere is built for work and play.

there was some problems early on with water..but after doing some homework, and doing a few items myself...I think it does pretty good in the water...mud is no problem with locking all fours

I just added a big gun slip on exhaust...I like it a lot...I did not want to spend $900 dollars for duals, at least not right now.
