Hey guys, I'm looking to replace my current kawi prairie with a foreman and I have a few questions. I have found 3 that fit in my price range but what is considered "high milage" for a four wheeler and are any of these worth it?
The first one I'm looking at is a '03 foreman es 450 with 1700 miles and a 190 hours. It has vampire tires and rims but no snorkels, which atleast means it hasn't been submerged. I believe one of the boots may be torn so that would have to be replaced but I believe everything else is in good condition from what I'm told. They want $2750 at the moment but I figured with a torn boot I could get them to come down.
The second one is a '05 foreman 500 with only 40 hours on the clock. not much detail on this one but they want $3000 which is a little over what I'm wanting to pay.
The third is a '06 500 foreman es that also has tires and rims and only has 282 hours on the clock and they want $3600, again alittle more than I want to pay.
Right now I'm leaning towards the '03 foreman because its slightly cheaper even if I have to replace a boot. Would any of these, except for the '05 of course, be considered high milage or high hours? and would it be worth what they want? Thanks!

Yeah, I agree the '05 is the better deal but I was looking for something more in the $2000-2500 range, that's why I'm leaning more towards the 450. I was thinking that if a boot was torn, and that being the only thing wrong with it, I could get it for $2200 or so maybe, as long as it's in good shape other wise. I've seen similar foremans around here in south Georgia go for more and have more milage and hours on them though.
Thanks for the help guys. I would love to post some pictures up but all the four wheelers are atleast an hour away from my home and at the moment I haven't had a chance to go look at any of them.
