How I ended up with a polaris 850 xp. The word overkill is an understatement with me usually. I needed something I plow my driveway, by the way I am from Ontario, Canada, it is maybe 3 times the size of a standard subdivision house (still small compared to some of the country homes out there). I live in a small town just outside of a big town just outside of capital city. Not really country, they still can fine you if you drive your atv along the roads. Anyways I was going to buy an enclosed tractor / backhoe to plow my little driveway and it took all summer to talk me out of it! the next plan was a new 2011 f250 kingranch with the new diesel and a v plow... finally I was talked into getting a atv for the job as I already have 3 vehicles (one being a 2wheeldrive pickup)

I have owned victory motorcycles in the past and had a good working relationship with my local polaris dealers it was a no brainer for me, Get the most powerfully machine on the market. For the small increase in price over the 550 I think the gain of 25+hp is worth it. when you compare the cost of horse power gain in cars where else will you a find a 70%+ hp gain for roughly $1000!

Anyways I am a huge offroader and love my jeep on 38s but since I took possession of this atv I have been on it very chance I got! Love it

I got the browning edition with front back and side guards, 5foot plow, trailer most of the other stuff I wanted came with the browning.
Love it worth every penny

I don’t know what the point of this story is as I read it back to me but just wanted to share my experience I guess.

thanks guys

Glade everyone has been enjoying these 850xp s as I have yet to hear any real problems.

I just took mine to a place I 4wheel with the jeep and man are there sooo many more atv trails I have not been able to reach with the big jeep. Had so much fun, the side guards are a must have! And winch ofcourse.

Just one question, I tried the hill decent mode, in my experience it was about the same as regular 4x4 I even tried going back and forth on a long hill. Is it a small difference or am I missing something?
