RTV 900 Posted by Fshrmn on 10/23/2012

Great machine. The engine has a lot of torque. Top speed is only 25 mph, but not having a CVT belt makes up for it. I looked at Polaris, John Deere and Kawasaki. After talking with friends and neighbors who have the belts in their UTVs and ATVs I made the right choice.

The hydro transmission works great up and down hills. I don't think I have ever used the brakes other than the parking brake.

The hydraulic dump bed is nice when moving firewood. I have loaded the bed up to the top of the roof with wood and put in more than a ton of dirt in there and the hydraulics still dump whatever is in there.

Front and rear 2 inch receiver hitches are nice when moving trailers.

I wasn't happy with the lower ground clearance and minimal suspension travel when I brought it home. However with a lot of weight in the bed there is a lot less body roll when going over rocks or up and down hills.

The vehicle feels really stable. Overall a great tool. If you want to go fast and play in the mud look at another utility vehicle.
