ok.. a mild re-cap.. I sold my 2010 850 touring back in early jan.. Had a guy come along and couldn't resist his offer.. I paid $10300 for it back in oct 2010 and sold it for $8000.. Not bad for 4 years and 3000km's if you ask me.. Anyway.. After I sold the touring, I was bored and decided to throw my tractor up for sale on line as well.. Damn, if I didn't sell it too in about 10 days.. So holy crap.. There I was with my toys gone and the rest of the winter to hunt for new ones.. My dilemma as I searched was where to compromise or to compromise at all.. Either back off a bit on the caliber of tractor or on the caliber of atv.. Long story longer.. My head and my heart fought over what to do for the last month.. My head won in the end.. I decided to put more into the tractor part of the deal and took a bit of a step backwards in the atv department.. For any tractor guys out there I have small acreage and don't need a monster but do need something that has real tractor power and capabilities.. I'm a John Deere guy through and through and have owned 2 other green tractors in the past but never a new one.. So I bought a John Deere 1023e with loader, 60" deck and backhoe along with a White Sportsman 570 eps and am having a 2500lb winch installed but that's it for upgrades from the dealer.. Sorry there are no pics yet.. The tractor won't be in until mid april and since the dealer is 2 1/2 hrs away. I'm not making two trips so I won't grab the atv till then as well.. I did get to test ride a 570 and was quite impressed with the comfort and was pleasantly surprised at how snappy the power is..That said, an 850 XP it ain't. But then not much is.. Sooooo.. Now that I've demoted myself to the kids table so to speak (850 XP vs value ha!!).. I can only hope this Polaris is as good to me as my XP was..
