    What are your thoughts on. This guy I know is selling his it is an 05 with less than 100 hours on it. It has sat for 5 years. I thank he is
    scared of it he rolled it and it has sat. I know all the fluids will need changed and a battery . On the plus side it has a warn on it.
    what do you thank will be a good price. The finder will need fixed that I can weld thanks

    It would be a great machine for plowing snow and they are a great all around machine. Plenty of power for pushing snow and other chores through out the year.

    What do you thank I should offer him for it I don't want to hurt his feelings only because he trades his mowers in every 3-4 years.
    and I dont want to lose his business his mowers sell fast and I get a good amount for them :-o

    When he trades his mowers in, what do you give him? Book value, more than book value? Consider doing the same for his quad if it's in good shape, or go a little above book value and show him the numbers.

    Its been rolled and needs repair.


    Offer book less cost of getting it back in operation.
    Include labor in your estimate for repairs.

    Yea, I didn't notice the "rolled" part. I've got to learn to read "everything". LOL

    I'd just pass on it. No telling what it will need.

    I would think at $2500 that would be a steal.

    If the roll only caused a couple cosmetic issues, he's not too far off, at least by my standards.

    Why would you want to pay $600 more for 200 less cc's and carbs instead of EFI? Or are you talking a new one here?

    A little roll that only cracks the plastic in a couple spots to a quad is not a big deal. Check out the handle bars for scuffs and bends. What type of terrain was it rolled in? If something like his back lawn than this thing is probably perfectly fine and deserves a good home where it will be used. I wouldn't be worried about it except to talk the price down a bit. If you are worried and want it, take it to the Polaris shop in your area and have them check it out. They can probably weld that plastic back together for you too.

    I'd offer the guy 3k to start, stating the roll and sitting for 5 years so needs fluids/filters, and be happy anywhere under 4k. That would be a great deal in my opinion for that low of usage.

    I under stand what you are saying. It has been sitting for 5 years and yes I can weld the plastic its going to need new skins and all the
    fluids changed. I guss what I am concerned is that the inside may or may not have rust from sitting so long. Im going to think on it and talk to a dealer what he thinks. Thanks for all the in but guys

    I love my Z just not now

    I paid $4000 for my 04 Sportsman 700efi with a polaris 60" plow and warn winch fall of 2010... Had about 80 hrs on it, and also came with aftermarket front and rear bumpers. It's an incredible machine for pushing snow, I strapped a hardened 80 pound bag of concrete on the rear rack and modified my blade to 70". Never spun a tire yet, and I've pushed a lot of snow! I would think nothing over $3000 going on what you've described, but hey, what do I know.....

    He's out of his mind! The book "trade in value" is $2680 in good shape... not rolled.
