Well your going to get alot of mixed info but i'm a big atv guy and have ridein for years and ride with guys that have all different types. First how big of a guy are you and what sort of experience do you have? What will the wheeler be used for? I ride a 800 and love it. Its pretty heavy which is why you need to be in good shape even with the winch. My wife rides a 500 and its perfect for her. It doesn't enough power for me though. The problem with polaris is that they can overheat if you let the radiator gunk up. I removed the outer covers and seems to work out better also helps to get to the rad better too. Other than that I love it, it has way more power than I need but its great because I can use it like a bulldozer. I've gotten in the mud holes behind people and pushed them right out. If it were me i'd go with the 700 if your are scared of the 800.

My buddy has the king quad 700 and it seems to be a pretty good bike. I don't like brutes, had to many problems with the guys that I rode with, not that there bad bikes just not my preference. Hondas are pretty reliable just not much of a muddin bike, good for around the farm. Grizz's are pretty good too with there fancy power sterring but there hell to work on and especially if you break down in the field. Theres panels on top of panels and bars wrapped around bars and all your stuff that you need to get to is all tucked away. Anyhow good luck and i'd test drive as many as you can.
