I'm sitting here trying to think of a Con for the 900 LOL. I guess to nitpick maybe the reverse chain link in the 900 but I think 800 has one too just that its bigger. IDK unless your gonna put massive tires on it and hammer thru mud holes I wouldn't worry about the reverse chain thing, like I said just trying to nitpick.
OK GOT a COUPLE: I DO NOT like the secondary clutch setup on the 14-15 900 but that's also just my opinion. Seems like the jury is still out on the new side intake system found on the 900s. I don't have a problem with them but I might just do the relocate kit Polaris sells for piece of mind since I'm in snow and dust ALOT
You bet, the reason I bought a 900 is because most of my friends are farmers or ranchers and the ones with Rangers really talked up their 900's (compared to past rangers they've owned). One guy traded off his 13' Ranger for 14' Commander and will be going back to a 15' Ranger this spring.
Those Rangers get used HARD, daily, and usually get traded off every other year with about 5k -6k miles on them. As hard as they get worked I'm pretty sure not a single one of them has had any issues. IDK if the relocate kit is necessary, but I DO know the recommend it for tracks and snow so there must be a benefit to it, maybe other will chime in
I'd take the 900 over the 800 every time. The 800s have the same back up chain issue they just don't have as much power to break it. If your going to work it the Duraclutchs looks to be a good choice. For performance driving DDP clutches have always worked great for me and some here like the QSC clutches.
I prefer the manual parking brake setup on the 800 to the Park selection on the 900. That can easily be cured with the addition of the pawtector though. I am jealous of how quiet the 900s are and really like the windshield cage setup, the driver centered gauge, the engine placement, and seat that does not cook passengers!
