Hey , all. New guy here, new to ATV world, and proud owner of a 2017 Kodiak 700 EPS.. Bought it last week, knowing I'd use it for plowing snow this winter, and small jobs around the yard/lake.. Had them put a 3000# Warn winch, and Cycle Country plow, and bought a Polar 1200 trailer for hauling wood, carrying brush and anything else I can find to do.. Keep coming up with reasons to take her out after work, and my Harley is getting jealous! Looking forward to reading this forum and learning as I ride more...

Welcome Kevyn! Congratulations on your new ride, although it looks the same on the outside as the 2016s. Maybe they worked out some of the issues that seem to plague some of the 16 models. Will look forward to your review of your new machine. I have had zero issues with my 16, knock on wood.

Welcome and enjoy your new ride! It sure took the favorite spot when competing with my cruiser bike...
Is that a gas pump in your garage? Awesome!!

Yes, it's a portable (on wheels) 14 gal tank.. With a pontoon, Harley, lawn mower, and now my Kodiak, it saves me umpteen extra trips to the gas station.. We live 14 miles outside of town, so nothing worse than running low on gas on a weekend.. Problem solved!

Welcome to the forums and congratulations ! That's super cool to have a portable tank like that but with all your toys, it definitely seems necessary !

Just wanted to share I've had the opportunity, 3 separate times to use my 700 with my 50" Cycle Country blade, the past 10 days, and it's worked like a charm. With this, and the general use this past Fall, cleaning up around the yard/lake/woods, I couldn't be more pleased with performance, and response. And the handwarmers I had installed, have paid for themselves!! Pushed snow last week, when it was 11 below... Only issue I had, was standing up, to see when I was pushing off the road into field, I'd sit down, and the seat was **** cold on my butt... Anyone using anything special to keep their butt warm?!
