Hello everyone. I'm new to ATVing, and just bought my first ATV yesterday. A 2008 Foreman, 2000 miles, 198 hours. Garage kept one owner 50 year old Dad owned it. Stock except for winch, plow, and aluminum front skid plate. After I got it to our cabin, I plowed the 4" of slush/snow off of the driveway. Then took off plow and headed out onto the trails on our property. 1st and 2nd gear, driving slowly through the woods when the electric fan turned on after about 1/2 mile of riding. 38 degrees outside. I was surprised the fan turned on. after searching this forum, all I see is people saying that their fan doesn't turn on very often. Now I'm thinking something might not be right. Question is, is this normal??? Thanks in advance, Don

X2, I wouldn't worry about it either. My grizzly 450 fan turns on when plowing at times, even in single digit weather. And before I made my Rancher 400 fan manually switched, it would come on at times in the winter. Just keep a close eye on it during the summer, don't smoke your oil.
