Hey folks, hope this is ok to post here. I'm looking at a used Red 2016 Kodiak 700 Base Model for sale on craigs in the northeast, usa. Says it has less than 10 hours on it and from the pics, it looks it. Has full aluminum skid plates, winch, plow, camo seat cover, kolpin gun boot and mount and cabella waterproof gear bag. The guy started at 6500 and he and I are at $5100 which is his absolute bottom. I've had many, many 4x4 ATV's as I get bored, sell them for a dirt bike, get bored, sell the dirt bike to get an ATV, etc. I know this model doesnt have the gauge cluster, adjustable shocks, head light, diff lock, etc but in my area a used grizzly or loaded used kodiak will run 7-8K and I dont have the budget for that. I was really looking for a kodiak 450, kq 550, etc for around 4K but this machine may be close to brand new as it was owned for a short period of time by a hunter. Do you think this is a good price from the description I have posted? What are these things going for used? Thanks!!

For what its worth, I'm struggling between this 2016 kodiak 700 for $5100 and a 2011 grizzly 550 with EPS and 250 miles for $5500. The kodiak is newer and has less use but also has less options. They both have winches and plows. I should have mentioned before that resale value is absolutely critical as I do get bored and move these machines eventually (within a year) Thanks.

Buy the kodiak you will be happy. You can mod it to your preference and set up. I just bought a 2018 Se and haven’t been off of it more then 3 days in the 4 months. It will do anything you need and more

If your assessment is right on the condition and hours, that machine is a steal, and he has offered you a fair deal, please don't go for a larger discount, the guy is desperate.
