Im in the 220 lb range and have rode all over the area down in the Hatfield and Mcoy country including the outlaw trails and never have had a problem. I think the Wolverine is one of the more capable machines for those trails I ride. My dad has the Teryx and in a lot of spots it is a tight ride for him, meaning steering and turning. I think the machine has enough power for any trail there. Would a bigger motor be nice sure, I went through the same machine choices as you did and in my mind I hit the target dead center with my choice. Good luck in your decision process.
