Segment: ATV/Quad

Looking for a vehicle capable of moving fast across rough terrain, but at the same time be easy to tame and provide a reassuring feeling? The 2008 Polaris Sportsman 300 might be just what you were searching: a middleweight beast with a carbureted 299cc engine, simple F/N/R gearbox and with selectable AWD for when the going gets really tough.

Despite its small-to-medium displacement, the 2008 Polaris Sportsman 300 can tow heavy loads and users can rack a lot of gear on the dual luggage racks. This ATV can serve for both outdoor chores around the farm or ranch, but its recreational capabilities remain however, intact, for great fun in the wild, forest trails or open fields, alike.
