Default raptor 700 or big 4x4?

hey guys im just wondering how good a raptor does in thick mud and about 1ft-2ft in water? i just wasnt sure how good it would do because it has 2wd and quite low to the ground. yesterday i started thinking if i should get a raptor or a 4x4 ( mayb either a brute 750 or a polaris 800) because i like to get dirty and play in the mud and if the raptor cant do that im not sure if its the quad for. id also ride trails and around in the open feilds and what not. thanks alot

i dont like the nasty goopy mud and avoid it when possible.
i have however ridin through mudpits about 2'-3' deep.
needless to say cleaning the bike is a bitch afterwards.
as far as fields they are great, i have ridin through creeks only 1' deep.
prolly the best quad you can get for trails.
a 4x4 is just so much more comfortable.
its up to you really i would sit on, test drive, do whatever you need to do
to decide which one you like best.

just get them both I love my rappy, havent played in deep mud or water, mud maybe close to a foot. But ther has been a lot of pics posted of people playing in some deep stuff. Not sure if I would want to get my rappy too deep in shit. Thats a tough choice that i had as well, but I decided the speed, and jumping out weight the deep mud playing. Are ther other things that you will use the 4x4 for? like hunting or work? I hunt and my wife likes playing in the mud, so were going to sell her 400ex and get a 4x4. I dont know how much this blah blah helped, but i dont think anyone would be disapointed with a rappy

thanks alot for the quick the quick replies. i wish i could afford both but that wont happen.
im pretty sure the the big 4x4's (700-800) can still move pretty good. i would just be going in thick mud and kind of deep water, other than that i might use it to push snow in the winter. hmm i guess right now im still leaning towards the raptor. to others that reply later do you have any pics of you mudding on your raptor? thanks again

The speed the raptor has should get you through the mud fine. I haven't took my raptor in any deep mud yet due to very dry conditions. But, if you are looking for a raptor 700r and 4x4. I would suggest the Bombardier Renegade it's a 2 in 1 deal in my opinion and it's very quick for a 4 wheel drive or you could just buy a little beater for a while and wait it out for the 150 hp 1000cc artic cat 4x4 atv coming out soon. But, the best thing to do would just sit on both if you can ride both which ever your heart desires is the one you should go with.

ive been in some nasty stuff with my raptor,and it does really good..but it does take a bit of practise..the hardest thing is coming out of a deep hole,the front end gets up but the back gets hung up sometimes..thats where the outlaw 525 would prob be better as it has 7 inchs more clearance..with 4x4 you can put put through things...on my rappie its get out of the f..in way im coming through..lol..i added a winch this year,i live in northern ont,where we have black mud with no base..

I agree with DITCHBANGER get you a Polaris Outlaw 500 or 525. It has plenty of power and speed like the raptor, but with the IRS and plenty of ground clearence, with the right tire setup this thing can get in and out of some pretty nasty places. My brother-in-law has one and he has gone through alot of stuff that I got stuck in on my raptor. You cant go wrong with Outlaw, you get the best of both worlds. Just my 2 cents........

The nice thing about my 660 is that it floats! (when your not sitting on it, duh!) I've floated it down the rive more than a few times and as long as you keep the front end up it's fine. If I'm going up river I just load it up in my 16' aluminum boat and hit every sandbar I find!
