I know the Polaris, and even the Can Am have gotten bad raps over the years but they are fairly solid bikes now. The Brute has always been a solid bike, albeit I am not a fan of the front diff design (personal battle there). However, where I live, the Sportsmans, Renegades and, Outlanders dominate the parks and they get some nasty abuse. Guys I have talked to said they favor those bikes because of setup over the Brutes. Cannot argue there. There are few Brutes out there but not many. My posse is made up of my 2013 Brute, 2018 Sportsman 1000XP HighLifter, and 2017 Outlander 1000R. Mine has been the most "reliable" but I come back with the most plastic broken, every time. Those guys can definitely hog through more than I can. The Brute very well at extraction for those other bikes though!A grand more for half the machine.😁
I wouldn't get the Po if it were $5000 less.
