I remember hearing about that. Have a link?

I've finally taken delivery of my Pioneer 1000, and I've learned a few things already.

1. The fabric doors are fine, but there is a label that says they should be removed for towing. That's a pain, and I'll try to make
a work around solution.

2. The Pioneer 1000 doesn't fit in a 7' wide enclosed trailer even by ordering a custom road-side door (tried many different makes). I ended up with an aluminum, 7' X 12', open trailer with an hydraulic assist and a 2' gravel guard. This is a snap to load/unload, no ramps, and it is a better weight for my mid sized SUV to pull. They even suggested mud flaps on my vehicle - ugg.

It is a very peppy machine, and it handles well. I don't have much time at all running it yet. It does have a few complications that require familiarity with the owner's manual for sure. For example the seat belt much be fastened or it bucks like a wild horse with a hot poker up it's butt. The transmission warrants some reading of the manual too.

I've been reading the other posts with interest. What is a battery isolator, and what does one cost? I see the place they have provided for a second battery. My Warn 4,000 lb. winch is a Honda installed winch (I actually got them down a little on the price, but I'm sure they did alright even with the discount). The winch will not be used much I hope - just rescue. The fans at the base of the seat seems like a great idea if it can be done such that it doesn't look cobbled together. I will address the heat issue after I've had a little experience with the cab temps, and I sure appreciate all the comments and ideas.

I purchased a hard top, glass windscreen, hard rear cab, and the fabric doors. It is a big machine for sure, but I think it will be a joy on the trails. The paddle shift operates very easily, and I think it may add to the pleasure and functionality of the ride. You can even downshift when the trans is in automatic mode and the UTV is moving. Nice if you're coming to a steep hill.

BTW, the manual says that the cigarette lighter is not to be used as a plug for any type of heater

I'll post more after I've had the opportunity to run it through its paces. Meanwhile I'll continue to plow my Wisconsin snow with my 1996 Honda Foreman 400. LOL

Fabric door removal for towing?? Can't help but think that was written by a lawyer from another planet. I'd ignore that...

Congrats on the new machine. Sounds like you have a reasonable towing setup too.

So far so good, glad your pleased with your new purchase. Don’t forget those all important pictures:-)
The cigarette lighter socket would melt down with a heater plugged into it, heaters draw a lot of Amps. You’d be better off making a little wiring harness, fused with a relay. You could run most small aftermarket heaters that way.
We have a JCB UTV at work and that get quite hot inside, I could only ever imagine that a heater would be necessary to demist the windscreen.

Essex mfg sells underseat fan kits primarily for Kawasaki and Kubota. I talked to Dan about them today. I want to get one for my 06 Mule 3010 LATTV; they built my rig special like one of 500 and have cab heater kits that plumb into the radiator.

guess they figured owners will haul them on open trailers ?, if this is the case ?, then freeway winds will rip them apart would be my guess :-).

Oh shoot, I was stupid and was thinking it in regards of using the pioneer for towing things. Wasn't thinking about it from the point of "hauling" the pioneer. Oops.

BTW an isolator is basically a harness with diodes to network charges to and from the batteries “isolating” them from one another. Gotta have it won’t charge both batteries without it
