HDX 700 Reports?

New to the site and was wondering if anybody has had a chance to drive the new HDX with Power Steering? I'm torn between the 1000 XTZ with Power Steering or the 700. Or should I wait and see if Cat comes out with a HDX 1000. Any report or input is welcome.

Welcome, I drove the HDX Love the shifter on the dash, All the roll over safety stuff my drive you nuts, Love the new steering wheel, I hope I dont start anything with this but the power steering is to GM like for me(Just me) I think it feels like its a little quicker than my 700 XTX( maybe the gearing) seamed to ride better on the street. When you look behind you the bed looks like a football field is (the bed is BIG) behind you, dont like the cheap DURO tires on it. It may sound like I dont like it but I think it will be a great machine for someone looking for a work machine. Just my 2 cents.

2009 Prowler 700 XTX Walker Evans Shocks,STI Roctane 27/9/14 and 27/11/14 tires,Warn skid plates,Ridgid Ind Prerunner Cage,Home made spare tire carrier,Hids high and low beams,1.5 inch wheel spacers,E Brake Alarm, Rear diff vent mod Etc. NO TURF SAVER!

I drove the HDX before buying my XTZ.

The power steering rocked, wasn't overly impressed with the shifter in the dash (seemed hard to shift), the safety shields made it awkward to get in and out with street clothes (can only imagine the nuisance when suited up in winter gear)

It also had a major metal vibration at lower rpms (think it was the storage doors under bed but not sure) that drove you nuts in a short test drive.

I went with the XTZ for the fact it was a better deal, I had parts that would go right on it, and I prefer the look.

Test drive them both and see which suits you better is the best advice I can offer.

2010 Prowler XTZ 1000-
27" Grim Reaper Tires/Home Made Roof/Arctic Cat Mirror/Quadboss Folding Windshield w/ home made support bar/LED Tail-Brake lights//Venom 4000 lb Winch/Amsteel synthetic line/Home Made Doors/Custom Adjustable Seats/Custom Oh Crap bar for passenger/Tonneau Cover/Fat Max storage Box in bed
Tiger Tail Towing system

I'd like to extend my welcome too.
I almost had to drag my wife away from the HDX our dealer had on his lot. I will admit it is a very nice unit. It had storage everywhere and the power steering is like putting ice cream on pie. (yummy) I would be really impressed if the powerplant was 1000cc's.
