How much do they want for the outlander? Is rear irs? Is it a belt drive or manual tranny? What do you plan on using it for? Personally i like my foreman and know absolutly nothing about the outlanders and have only seen like 3 on the trail and have never really looked at them.

I have a friend that has the Outlander and he brags about the frame..It supposedly is very thin and a tall clearance and likes the power. BUT..When we ride ( With some 350 Ranchers, 450 Foremans, 500 Foremans and 650 Rincons ) his seems to be the one we are pulling out the most. Why?...I dont know. I haven't been ablt to tell if it is the operator or the machine

You will only know if you get on it and put it thru your OWN test on the trails and in the mud. Good luck

In my opinion, they have one of the best 4wd systems on the market. It is
called Viskolok. It acts like a limited slip until it loses traction, then they all
lock up. Kinda like a locker without havin' to activate it. It does it all by itself.

i really like it and we can get it for a good price but i just dont like that you cant get many upgrades for it, which i probably wont get any upgrades any way so thats why i like this machine, its fast, comfortable, it has 1200 ibs towing compacity, and irs rear and fron suspension.........any other opinions would be apreciated
