I live in SW Virginia, ride outlaw and H/M trails in WV. I have a rzr 570 now, but I have owned nearly every major brand.

Hi I am Jim and live in Oceanside Ca. Have had a Polaris 800 but nothing now. Kind of a challenge to find a place to ride within an hour of my house.

Hello guys. I'm from northern Wisconsin. I'm retired Law Enforcement. I've been on the site now for a little over a week and have learned quite a bit. I just purchased my 2016 Wolverine a couple weeks ago. EPS camo. I've only got 15 miles on it so far, but really, REALLY love it. I've had the Grizzlys up until now. More to follow, but this is an introduction thread. Catch ya on the forums.......

Thanks! And I'll post some pics this weekend. They are putting a winch on it within the next day or two, so I'll pick it back up on Thursday.

Hi folks, I currently own a 2012 Commander 800XT. Nice machine but it has it's problems. One being the clutch, it sucks! It's easy to slip/burn the belt. Always has to be run in low unless your running at a decent speed. Two it's extremely noisy esp. with the cab enclosed and third it is very hot to drive in the summer months. I had a 2002 Grizzly 660 I purchased new and loved it. Never had any problems with it, still has it's original belt. When I was looking for a sxs to replace it the Grizz Yamaha only had the Rhino and it just wasn't what I was looking for. Two years later Yamaha wakes up and starts build some interesting machines, The Viking is nice but huge and needs more motor. JMO Not for speed so much but for slow to moderate trails and plowing snow, one of the jobs my machine has to do well. I live in the Lake Erie snow belt and we average 150 + inches a season. So I looked at a R-Spec yesterday and was impressed so I'm hoping in the not so distant future to purchase but have to get some thing's worked out before that can happen. Looking forward to everyone's thoughts and opinions on the R-Spec.

So far we all love them. One member seems to be having a overheating problem, other than that I've read of no issues. I live in south Louisiana so we rarely get snow and if we do its not enough to plow, so I can't speak to the Wolverine's ability to plow. I can tell you its done everything I've asked of it better than I expected. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Welcome to the site! feel free to ask questions, we are all friendly here.

Epic,
It has about the same engine as my Rhino 660 if not the same one, and that machine could push snow! My father and the guys at camp were amazed when they used it to clear the camp road. I expect the same from the Wolverine.
The only thing is I like the mid-body plow mounts and I don't know if one will ever be offered because of the full body skid plate.
