2017 pioneer 700-4 deluxe

Hi guys I live in pa, and getting ready to pull the trigger on the pioneer p4 deluxe. After reading all the power issues people having iam still going forward, hope it don't bite me in the ass, does anyone think the paddle shifters will fix the hill climbing ability????

I don't think the paddle shifters will make any difference climbing hills, because if you keep your foot in the throttle in auto. mode it's going to hold that gear.
Also the gearing hasn't changed for '17, which is the only thing that would make a difference besides a more powerful engine.
The P1000 still has issues they need to work out, and that could take a few years. The 700 is a proven machine, only needs oil changes and air filter kept clean to be super reliable.

Thanks for the input iam not out for a race machine just want it to climb a decent hill. A1000 may come into play couple years from now but can't wait to get the 700-4 out and running lol

I don't care for the clutch engagement on the 1000. It's either engaged or disengaged. I much prefer the P700 transmission, and I drive them around everyday at the dealership.
The thing I dislike about the 700 is not having a differential in the back, like the one used in the Big Red. With power steering it's not near as noticeable.

I'm with Burford on the clutch engagement on the 1000, I hate it. The 17 model is suppose to be better but I haven't had the chance to drive one yet. For my terrain and elevation the 700 (mines a bigred) does everything needed yet I'm comfortable letting my 10 year old drive it when needed around the farm.

Just purchased that 700-4 DeLuxe and hope the same... don't bite me in the ass down the road. I mostly do logging roads and haul a trailer with 21ft canoe (20HP Honda) for fishing in remote areas. Picking it up this week. My biggest concern is it wont fit in my enclosed trailer with only 74" clearance at the door. So thinking of dropping the roll cage a few inches to accomodate. Anyone done it here? Pics and advice welcome.
