Default 2013 Pro RMK 155 Deal

Hey guys, I just saw our local cat dealer recently put a 2013 PRO RMK 800 155 for sale on their website... It goes for $4500cdn... I drive a 2009 RMK 700 with a brand new top end and this sled is a banger ! I was wondering what would you guys do ? By the newer 2013 and sell the 2009 ? Or keep the 2009 and forget about the 800... The 800 had a top end done to it 2 years ago with OEM pistons... I feel like trying a newer sled but the 09 is paid for... I am not a wealthy guy with 5 kids ! But the 800 sure is tempting for the price and newer of course ! Looking for feedback ! thankx guys !

I have owned both the 2009 RMK 700 and the 2013 RMK 800. I been fortunate and have a couple axys RMK sleds now. There is a big improvement from the dragons to the pro. The 2013 is the first year of the belt drive. It has the better seat, carbon overstucture, better running boards, and thicker cylinder skirts. All these improvements are over the 2012 pro RMK.
The 2011 and 2012 are are huge improvement over the 2009. Huge weight drop, coil over skid being the biggest improvements.
Another plus is they are cheap to fix because Polaris sold a ton of these things, used parts are plentiful and cheap.
That said I could have a blast riding a 2009 RMK also. Is it worth the upgrade? That you have to decide.

To tell you the truth, your answer was pretty spot on on what I wanted to hear ! Thankx for being honest !

I really wanted to know does the 800 have more of a fun factor to it ? You where bang on with your last comments. Thank You !
