Sportsman 570 eps vs grizzly 450 eps

I'm looking at getting either a grizzly 450 eps or polaris sportsman eps and I need help. Of these two which one would be better for things like mudding and snow riding. I'm also looking at an outlander 500 base. I've also heard these lack in power and want to know if it will at least feel like more power than my 250cc.

I have a Grizzly and a Sportsman. The Sportsman is currently broke, waiting on a stator. This is the fifth repair in 6 months for the Polaris. The Grizzly has 4,000 miles and has only had brake pads and batteries in seven years.

How do you compare a 570 with 44hp and fuel injection to a 450 with 24hp with a carburetor.
I do know that the 450 can go a threw a lot of stuff a 550ho can't. Doesn't high center as easily.

I looked at the 570 Sunday. Dumbest place ever to mount a battery imo!

The reason I compare between the two is because they are just about same price.

570 will almost beat a grizzly 700 and has efi. Wont be as reliable so get the extended warranty! The 570 is probably 200 lbs heavier than the 450 as well.

Suspension bushings and wheel bearings are common.

Everyone I know with the 570 is loving it. Super smooth ride, big ground clearance and powerful enough to coax the odd wheelie. With a little clutch work they'll wheelie and feel as powerful as a grizz 700. They seem reliable but do need the odd set of suspension bushings. I guess 10" of smooth wheel travel has to wear something out.
I'm a grizzly 700 owner, but have to admit, the 570 is a nice ride.

Polaris is built like sh%# they break more than you ride water kills the electronics and they go thru belts like crazy. I hunt with several people that own polaris and they hate them but a lot of people like them. I will say that I just bought a 14 grizzly 700 and the dealer I use also sells polaris and honda he said that the polaris' are the best sellers to people because of the price but took me into the shop and showed me why he loved them they had 20 polaris broke a grizzly being serviced and a honda being serviced I am on my second grizzly and have never had a problem traded the 09 in because the 14 was wider and feels a lot more torquey on the bottom due to the compression ratio change.

It's a Polaris. Do you want to ride and get back home/to camp, or do you want to spend you time calling the dealership to find out if your ATV is ready to be picked up ... again?

Seriously ... I just spent ~2 weeks researching and it got down to two machines: Sportsman 570 vs. Grizzly 550 EPS. When all was said and done, I was convinced that the Grizzly would spent most of its time on the trail, while the Polaris would spend more time in the shop and/or being maintained. For me, I decided that the ~$900 more for the Grizzly 700 EPS (over the 550) was a no brainer, but I would have gone with the Grizzly 550 EPS over the Sportsman had the extra dough been an issue.

I immediately added a Superwinch Terra 3500SR winch, a full Warn plow kit, and just about 30 minutes ago screwed on a new set of tires & wheels.
