Looking at a 2011 500 that has full cab heater and wipers. The hours seem high 1100+, other wise it seems in decent shape. Anyone have any comments / concerns that this may be a red flag. Asking is $6800. Too high/low??
Depending on which cab (which brand, hard or soft, with or without doors, etc....), $2300 could be anywhere from a little high to VERY cheap for the cab.
I know 1100 hours is quite a few, especially on a machine that new, but that tells me that much of that was "probably" driving on asphalt and/or gravel. Plus, I have seen MANY 500 engines with over 2000 hours and no issues, and have seen a few go over 4000 hours before needing a rebuild. The 500 is probably the best engine that Polaris ever made.
Assuming it appears to be in good shape and he's kept the fluids changed, I think $6800 is a pretty good deal if you want one with a cab.
I have the same Ranger & bought it during the winter of 2011. I use it a lot on our woodlot & some fairly long rides on the railbeds in the area. I've got just over 300 hours on it. Even if I was using it during the winter, I don't think I'd approach those kind of hours.
