    Strange, I live in Pittsburgh, and I have never seen that exhibit here!

    That, my friend, is a beautiful piece of machinery. If I had the land to use it on, something like that would be way up there on my "want" list.

    Make sure you update us with some pictures of that bad boy in action!

    Eatonpcat, nice buy. Ours has been a workhorse since we bought it, we have the oil,filters along with having them grease the proper areas every fall. Depending how much running I'm doing with our Rhino (just working around the house or running back in to cut) determines how often I check the oil, if I've been running the hills bring down wood I'll check it before I take it out.

    If you are thinking about getting a plow for it and you will also be working with the winch in the woods you might want a winch for the back so you won't burn the brakes up on the front winch.

    Ok members lets fill Eatonpcats Rhino up, I'll add the obvious, two chainsaws.

    Thanks Zap...Hopefully it will run good for me. I probably will change the oil and plugs this weekend.

    Fill up the Rhino:

    New or used? Sure does look new, or VERY lightly used. If it's new I would leave the plugs alone and change the oil after about 20 hours.

    Looks like you got all the goodies (windshield, roof, winch). I wouldn't add a thing...give your wallet some time off. Just need a trailer and you're ready for some serious firewood hauling. I love my ATV...I'd be lost without it now.

    In that case, proceed as planned. Might not hurt to change the fluid in the differentials too.

    Looks in real good shape.

    Thats how we get down in Ohio!...!...!! ;)


    I was looking at a Razr by Polaris before I bought the Dixie Chopper. In reality its gonna be the Polaris Ranger that wins my heart. In another yr or two, I WILL have one. Looking to sell or trade my 440EX... I just sold my Honda Rancher 350 4x4. I just gotta sell this one and get a side by side (My Sons Quad stays/ Bad @SS 125cc!)

    Hard to get firewood on a sport Quad!?!?! (Oh yeah, I bought it brand new in 99/ been rebuilt twice and only gets BETTER! And FASTER! :))

    So when can I borrow your HD Ford, Heavy Duty A$$ Trailer, and your Bad A$$ Rhino.... ;) You got the Good Toys!

    We have to get together. 20 minutes?!?!? You head South on it and I will head North on my 440. Beers on me (Christmas Ale on Tap at Forts right now in Wellington).

    (Edit: Scotty, I am OCD about everything being clean when I am done. Its bad... Ask my Wife?!?)

    Thats for sure. I got a bunch of junk compared to that nice stuff. My quads had the same mud on it for a couple years... :eek:
