I am new to the snowmobiling world so I would really appreciate any insight you could give me before making my purchase. I am looking to purchase one of the 2 sleds pictured in this post.
The first is a '97 Indy Ultra 700 6,000 miles(private seller - $900)
It is a 2-stroke with electric start, reverse, studded track, and handwarmers
The 2nd is a '98 Polaris XLT SP 600 - 4700 miles (Dealership - $900)
The only features given to me were the handwarmers
I personally don't care what sled I buy as long as its reliable, comfortable, and fun! I will be doing a lot of trail riding and don't neccesarily need to go 100mph. I don't know enough about snowmobiles yet to see a difference in the two. Assuming they are both in good condition and functional which would you recommend for me? Also, would you rather buy from a private party or a dealer? Do either have a history of issues? Both are asking $900 for the sled!
Thank you very much for your expertise!!!
