Best Entry Level Sled
My star ratings are based on my idea of the perfect entry level or budget sled. I purchased this sled for my son who was a beginner two seasons back.
I read some other PSN reviews that claimed it was a hard start to pull the 550 over for kids or women so I got the electric start. Electric start is nice but I would not get the option again.
The pull is easy but the sled can take several pulls in extreme cold. The sled is a blast to ride. It's very user friendly for entry level riders.
I like the fact that the sled has a steady acceleration but not crazy fast like an EFI 600. My girlfriend also rides the sled and loves it.
I even take the sled out and it is fun to whip it around. The fit and finish is awesome and I love the fact that Polaris had the forethought that no other manufacture offers and that's a simple threaded tool to open up the clutch for easy belt removal.
