Good morning everyone,

I currently own a 2016 Can Am Outlander XT 850. Love the bike, but just doesn't fit my needs for hunting therefore I've been considering a SxS for several months now. This machine will serve as my primary hunting rig and we do ride on the weekends from time to time.

Current machines I'm considering:

Can Am Commander 1000XT
Can Am Defender HD10
Polaris General 1000
Polaris Ranger XP900

I want something that I can comfortably ride two when I get a wild hair to do some trail riding, but can also carry a deer, or plow a food plot in the hunting woods.

I found a used Polaris General 1000 in Blue, test road it. Nice rig, but for another $1000 I can buy a new Commander.

I'm leaning towards the General or Commander as both will dual purpose, so if you have any experience with both or either please comment on your findings.

Any down sides to the Commander? Known issues?
The main known problem with the first couple years was the rearend....if you are looking at 2011-13, be careful if it is still sporting the stock one.

Some guys also don't care for the air suspension.

Plenty of information on those and all other minor issues are here to search out in your leisure time.
