    Fuel economy vs HP

    Glenn is spot on! I have seen post for mpg from 6 to 15, but "no" one ever gets rid of their HDT's due to MPG. But if you can't afford to fix it, you just have a lump of unusable metal!!!
  5. Hey Dave! Wish I could have put my 2 cents in before you pulled the trigger. I am pretty sure I gave you a ride in my midsize LE Ranger. That being said, sliding into the seat instead of dropping into it is much easier as we age. If your not going to jump or trail faster than 40mph, a utility cross may have been more useful and comfortable. Sure would be easier to carry the dogs or supplies and they are "just" as capable only at lower speeds. Personally I am a Polaris man, a General or 1000 or loaded 900 Ranger will do anything you want, reliably! I "do" like the Honda Pioneer 1000 special edition also, can't go wrong with a Honda! Did you have a chance to see any of the Washington state UTV groups/forums/boards? They have "many" great rides, weekdays and weekends. From mild to wild, short to over 250 mile routes (some Including street travel). Since you made your decision, please get it street licensed. Best fun "dingy" ever! If you get it licensed here? Push for the "white motorcycle plate" not the green restricted. Anywhere/ anytime use (on 35 mph and under roads) then! Good luck my friend! 😁 Curt
  6. Dave; I will talk with them and get back to you. Curt
  7. Dave; Did you sell the Freightliner? I think I have a "local" buyer for you. Curt

    10 Speed Autoshift ain't so Auto any more

    Paul & Paula; Please replace or pressure check the trans cooler. You may want to check the condition of your engine coolant also! Missing oil has to go somewhere! It sure didn't evaporate.
