I like the idea of the awd, and they have performed since I've used them. But I like the Arctic Cat, and Yamaha's design of 4wd and Difflock. When you do need to use diff lock it usually gets you out of a sticky situation and its cool to say you have that feature the first time. The way my Grizzly was set up was always a small step ahead of my friends machines, Polaris included. Honestly though, I think they have their good and bad features like everything else. Glad you like yours though!

Thank you

I really like it, I took a look at it and it ran pretty solid. I'm going back this wee kto hopefully work out a deal. The DVX and LTZ are the same thing, just Arctic Cat makes the plastics for the DVX. The drivetrain, motor, exhaust, everything is idential to an LTZ

I'm just at school again tonight, enjoying the course so far!

Learned a few things in tonights class, regarding tree protection and so forth. Avoiding planting or sodding grass right up to a tree (string trimmers destroy bark and kill the tree) or edging to the drip line of the tree and mulching to allow proper oxygen to the roots. Ensuring you don't compact or add soil over the roots because it restricts air flow. Things like that, pretty knowledgable class. Not really new idea's but good to have in mind for any new comers!

Yep I guess its loaded, it has the deluxe instrumentation screen, heat, A/C, Pilot controls. It does have foot controls also, you can switch between them.

That baby is sweet inside and out, and I'd say it's fully loaded.
