All Pros. It is a great machine. If you go with a non le modle it is a little cheaper. Good luck and enjoy cant go wrong.

[email protected], welcome call to ArcticChat! :chug:

I don't have the 700, so I can't offer an opinion. But please do post some pics of your Cat if you get one!

As things turned out I bought a V2 before the 700 was even available. You can bet if I was in the market, the Cat model with the biggest engine would be the one I'd choose though.

So for the moment, my V2 will have to do until the time for a new one comes.

My ATV's frame and drivetrain are basically the same as the 700 anyway, so at least I'm close.

welcome call can't go wrong with the Cat, if you want a real torque monster go for the H1, never ridden a 700 but have heard good things about them here on the site. I see you've just joined, this is a real good site with lots of information and a lotta good people, enjoy! Dog

I bought one back in November of 2006. So far, I like it . It rides very well and has good power. I am 6'6" and weigh 320lbs and it hauls me around fine. I have pulled some good size trees with it. I have not ridden any of the other ATV's on the market so it is hard to compare one from the other. If you are a balls-to-the-wall ATV racer then you will not like it. It weighs over 700 lbs. It is a great trail, mud, and work quad.

Check the dealer closely by asking around. When there is a problem, you want a dealer who will work for you. Some of them don't give a damn and could care less.

Good luck with your decision.

700's are awesome. The only draw back is they take forever to break in (but, thats a good thing too). They get alot faster after you put 1000 miles on them. Get a power commander too, it really brings it to life.

What is a power commander? Is it some kind of a cdi box.

tks cardio

I have had my 700 about 4 mo's. It has impressed me on how well it does in the mud and rock climbing. I also upgraded from a 500 and am very happy with my decision. Great power and torque.
One item on the 700 is I think the belt exaust is lower than it is on the H1 or 500. I took in water twice to the belt housing during some deep crossings and in deep mud. I snorkled after the 2nd time.

I am not an expert but I think with the EFI you don't have the same jetting issues if you ride high altitudes or if you snorkle it.
