    RSX 860 purchase questions

    I've sold my 9 year old RZR and am buying a new side by side.
    The two options that I am considering are the RZR 900 EPS (2017) and the RSX 860 EPS (2016-new). I'm very happy with my JD equipment and less than enamoured with my Polaris, so I've been digging into the RSX.

    I use my RZR for trail riding, snow plowing, a little bit of stuff in the box like a chainsaw/generator, and pulling an aluminum tub trailer etc. I'd guess I pull up to the 1500 lb limit of the RZR regularly.

    Has anyone pulled 1500 lb with the RSX? It's rated for 1200 but could it be stretched on a bit on flat land?

    Other thoughts on the RSX? The reviews seem very positive and and leaning towards the RSX....just want to make sure real life owners are happy with their RSX.

    I have no idea what a RSX, RZR or a EPS is. Guess I am no use to you, but good luck finding an answer!

    Seems you're interested in a fast SxS. The RSX is the sprinter, not the working horse...

    Normally you'll have no probs pulling higher weights with a Gator like the 825i or the lower 5xx series.
