I gave in and bought one. WOW!!! I took it out tonight for a stroll. I ended up going into the woods where they are clearing for a neighborhood. I decided to drive around a rather large retention pond that was in the woods. There was a 8' path going around it. I went through some stuff that I wouldn't attemp to take my truck. It has been raining here a good bit and where I took it is muddy to say the least. It was very rutted out with stumps, logs and roots. Once I got in there I thought to myself that I need to turn around because I don't even have my winch on yet. Well I couldn't turn around because if I had tried I would of gone down about 30' into the pond. I had no choice but to go through it. To my suprise the Bad Boy went through this incredible muck of 150 yards as if it were on hard packed ground. Another thing is this thing climbs like my Grizzly 700 would of done. Well almost. I am extremely satisfied with this buggie. The fit and finish has just a touch to be desired but it is an unstopable tank.

$8400. They are a little over priced but worth the money if yu want to hunt in silence with no smell and go through th swamp and back without any effort.

You couldnt use them here due to the fact that everything on the logging roads have to be street legal, Not too many swamps here either,I guess its marketed for the southern half of the US

What I don't see is range. They may be quiet, but how far can you go on a charge? The cost of being wrong could be pretty high. Run a wheeler out of gas, and you can bring in another can of gas to rescue it. I don't know what's involved with bringing in another can of electricity. Seems to me you'd have to lug in a pretty big battery, a generator, or a really long extension cord.

Sorry to be pessimistic - but where I hunt it's nothing to be 20 miles from where you started.

Here is a quote from the web-site

Quote:
Travel up to 28 miles and up to 17 miles per hour on a single charge!

It probably wouldn't be very good around here as well. Only going 28 miles I would have to stop and get a charge before I got home.
