My 1st question is:

What makes you want to purchase this UTV over any of the top 4 brands: Yamaha, Polaris, Kawasaki, Arctic Cat?

All of these manufacturers have an EXCELLENT utility 4x4, and for probably less $$...or at least very closely priced. Most of the major brands (if I remember right) are more powerful (bigger engines), will have more features, more upgrade/aftermarket options, and BETTER resale value when/if you decide to sell.

If it were me...I'd stick with the leaders in these machines...not some custom company like that. I agree...they look to produce a nice product, but they can not compare to the longevity of a major manufacturer like Polaris, Yamaha, Kawasaki, etc....

I'd rather buy a Yamaha Rhino for $1000 more and know I have a product that is proven. That engine has been around for over 5 years (I think) and then there is the Polaris Ranger (also been around a long time).

Who makes the engine in that 4x4?

if you want a joyner really go look at one first i have spent lots of time @ Ritchie Bros. equipment auctions and these things go for way cheaper than those prices brand new at auction. Also after taking a close look at one of the sand vipers it is a manual transmission I climbed in and thought i was going to rip the shifter right off. All of the linkage and components were cheap looking plastic. Stick w/ the known brands a Ranger will beat this thing hands down any day.

Well .....,,,
after being on hold for 10 minutes..Waiting on an engineer or Tech support..
this..Is a Chinese Motor..Made By Izuzu...
I ended up talkin to the parts manager..Nice guy. & he told me that the only prob they had was the rear diff breaking b4 & theyve since went to a forged part instead of a cast 1..
Guess with support like that..I'll be goin after the new RZR.
Thanks Ya'll
