I am looking at purchasing a pioneer 700-4 in the next few weeks. My only other atv experience is the 2 yamaha atvs I owned in 05-08. One was a 450, the other a 350. I have ridden a few others belonging to friends but the only utvs I have driven is a 610 mule and a gator 6x6. I am considering the pioneer for the use of light to moderate trail riding with 3 small kids and the wife, camping in the back country, and hunting/trapping. I will also be doing work around our land with it hauling logs and assisting with the food plotting which we have a tractor for the heavy work. It will be driven daily on a trap line in the dead of winter, and plowing snow. This unit seems to be the only machine of its kind that fits all of our needs unless somebody knows of one I missed researching them. I will be putting a windshield, hardtop, and the winch/snowplow combo on it. I want the hard doors but not for 1600 dollars. I am worried the plastic windows on the soft doors will crack in our cold winters. Any advice is appreciated on anything I posted.

Welcome to the forum. I'm a 700-4 owner, and have a wife + 5,4, and 2 year old. The cage, half doors, and nets are great for making sure you don't lose anyone. I haul wood all year round and will plow snow with it. The only other unit I came across with seating for that many and a decent payload for work was the Ranger 900 crew. You might want to check that out, but it's almost a full 3 feet longer, and $4,000 more. Two things I didn't want to accept.

It's great for hunting, and a lot of our members have pics up here of doing that.

Good luck in your selection and if you have any other questions, or want to chat about the Pioneer, feel free to PM me or just ask here.

Welcome to the forum!

I believe the plastic is soft plastic/polymer blend

Its not the brittle plastic that you would find in say toys.

Awesome! I'm sure you'll like it, we sure like ours so far. We use ours for the same type of stuff, riding in the mountains with the Wife and 3 kids. Nothing else offers what the Pioneer 4 does in that regard. I want to eventually end up with a set of tracks cab and heater so that we can navigate all the groomed snow mobile trails around here. Congrats and welcome!

did the dealership give you a date of when you will recieve the 700-4?
They have it and are setting it up the way I want it. I gave them a down payment to hold it so I can get my 401k loan. I would rather pay myself interest than a bank and I did not want to take a chance and go back and its gone.
