Have you had any major problems?
It had an ECM issue that was causing a miss at WOT, but they replaced it under warranty. Don't think that was related in any way to it being a demo machine. Even gave me another demo unit as a loaner while they had mine in for repairs. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another demo unit and save some big $$$.

Looks like a good deal to me..... what does the OTD price end up at? Just wondering as dealers usually sell below MSRP value from the sales floor anyway. But maybe not $1700 good.

Is doesnt not sound right .Why?
With an average speed of just 10 miles per hour in 15 hours it should have 150 miles on it. With an average speed of just 15 miles per hour in 15 hours it should have 225 miles on it. Someone pointed out that at 38 miles it would be an average speed of 2.5 MPH. Has anyone here driven their machine at 2.5 MPH for 15 hours? The fact that it has a plow has nothing to do with it? Does anyone here plow snow at 2.5 miles per hour??? Does not work very well does it?

Just saying that the numbers do not seem right. That is unless the machine sat around just idling for about 12 hours. I would ask them about the hours, to see what they have to say. The average human walks at 3.1 miles per hour.

Pretty sure the parking lot isn't that large.. A lot of forward and reverse traveling while plowing.

My 700 X2 was used as a primary plowing machine and it averaged out around 4.5 mph and the driveway was quite large, so 2.5 doesn't sound unreasonable to me at all.

Mine had 413 miles and I think about 96.5 hours or something close. It was under 100 hours.

Ouch.... I think they could do a little better at that rate!! I was OTD with my 2012 Sportsman 800 with 2500# Winch, Glacier 3 Plow System, and Front/Rear Rack Extenders (all installed) for just over $7420 with year end clearance savings last fall!!!

Either way.... good luck!
