don't get me wrong the grizzly is a great machine, but i have little pet peeves about em, for one there gas tank is up high which lowers the air intake and access to it, and most other bikes have there tanks under the seat for better weight distubution...and why is the gear shift on the left side awkward but u could get used to it, and i think i am looking at getting a Kawasaki just cuz there v-twin. and i love the power

The 700 Grizz had the tank moved under the seat, but I find mine to be a lot lighter on the front end. Took a few rides to get used to it. And as for the air intake, mines up pretty high. Watched a couple of buddies blasting through 3' of water, the 700 Grizz flew through every time without soaking the belt, the 800 CanAm soaked the belt and came to a halt every time he blasted through the same crossing. And the gear shifter should be on the left side, that way one hand stays on the throttle, shift with the other. Always hated my Polaris with the shifter on the right.

The Brute Force is a good machine, the guy with the 800 CanAm is still sorry for selling his and getting the CanAm. Only problem he had was the 4x4 engagement. If he in was 2wd going downhill and came to a dead end and had to back up, it won't engage 4x4 without going forward first, would just spin the rear tires trying to back up. Just had to remember to put it in 4x4 while still going forward.

Oh yah, and once you've rode one with power steering on tight, rocky, technical trails, you won't go back!

And power steering! Seriously, you gotta try one with and one without in a really tight, 4x4, slow technical trail.

But, 2 good choices, hard to beat the straight out power of the Brute Force. Only thing that beats it is the 800CanAm.

maybe fuel consumption would be something to consider between the twin and single?? I don't know how much different it would be?
Not that either are twins, but I do sometimes use quite a bit more in my 660 than my bud in his 500 vinson(but then I do tend to drive a little more aggresively )
It just depends on how much fuel you wanna pack, how far you wanna go and how much fuel they hold?
Maybe some one else can chime in on the differences in fuel consumption.






























Or maybe I'm just partial to tha Grizzly........

They all seem to go about the same for MPG, I look at the size of tank when I'm purchasing a quad, along with many other things! The Cat's are really nice, 25litre tank, rarely have to pack spare fuel. My 700 Grizz goes about 180km on a tank compared to my Kodiak which does about 130-150km/tank. Though the Kodiak gets much better MPG, I'd just go with the bigger tank.

yeah can am 800 are wicked machines. they also come with a pretty high price to pay for that, i would love to try power steering on a trail instead of show room/parking lot, but unless u know someone that has one, its hard to see..
