Boxer 320.... Stay away

I absolutely hate this machine, lets start out with the ride. I'm a bigger guy (210) and the spring assisted step was a joke. Every single bump, rock, or abrupt stop would jar my back. I was honestly thinking about buying a mouth guard because my teeth hurt so bad yesterday. Staying on the machine for 8 hours is absolute hell. the 20 hp engine is strong enough to move dirt, but would bog down if you decided to use the bucket and drive at the same time . Ground clearance is like 5 inches, so if you stay in the track ruts you will end up bottoming out very quickly, then in some cases it doesnt have enough power to push u out smoothly. NOW FOR THE CONTROLS! I ended up with my entire left side of my arm torn up because the damn machine threw me off. The problem is the fact that you have to always have two hands on the machine. thats not a huge concern of mine, however when you hit a bump, or if your finger slips off, the machine spins and trys to buck you off, and it does it very fast too! i was tooling around and the next thing i know my thumb comes off the control and it does a death spin. My arm got stuck in the machine and yanked itself out, bruising my entire arm, and yes, that hurt like a s.o.b.

SO, my body is torn up, the job took forever because we got stuck 3 times, and my headache wont go away from dealing with this thing... Im just glad its a rental

Damn!!! That's why a guy needs to be in a cab with a lap bar and a seatbelt.

Lmao that video just made my night. The funniest part is I bet that whoever was tapping it predicted that would happen and wanted to get it on film lol.

I love my boxer. It goes with me every day. Sounds like you need to learn how to operate it.

I've put around 1000 hours on a sk650, maybe I'm just spoiled by that machine. All Mini skids are amazing. They have changed my life and act as an extension of my body on the jobsite. However, compared to other minis, the boxer 320 is inferior. Why do you like the boxer over other brands?
