Features and Benefits:

The Rhino 700 is powered by a fuel injected 686cc 4-stroke engine, similar to the one found in the Grizzly 700. With fuel injection you get better cold starting, and super crisp throttle response. This engine also features roller bearing rocker arms for reduced friction and improved engine performance, with a forged piston and a carburized Chrome-Moly connecting rod for improved durability.

Fully automatic Ultramatic™ transmission is the most advanced drive system in the ORV world. Not only is it simple to use . . . select a forward gear, step on the gas pedal and go, but it also provides full engine braking to reduce brake wear. The Ultramatic CVT system uses a special clutch design, which reduces belt wear since the belt is under constant tension. This system provides superior no-slip performance and significantly reduces belt wear.

Push-button servo-controlled “On-Command” system allows you to switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD – all with the simple push of a dash mounted button. Real 4-wheel drive when you need it. With Diff-lock engaged, there’s no need to wait for one wheel to spin. You have traction to all 4 wheels, immediately. This puts you in total control… you decide when you need 4 wheel drive… the machine doesn’t decide for you.

Light, responsive rack and pinion steering features a fully sealed steering column and double u-jointed steering linkage for smooth action.

A single automotive-style brake pedal activates the dual front and rear disc brakes. This 4 wheel hydraulic disc brake system provides outstanding stopping performance in a variety of conditions. All four discs are tucked out of the way to prevent damage from rocks or stumps. A mechanical console mounted parking brake with an automotive style lever features a dash mounted warning light to avoid operating the unit with the parking brake engaged.

Large-capacity aluminum radiator with fan-assist delivers maximum cooling efficiency and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.

The air box is now up under the engine cover, located high and out of the way, with the crankcase breather pipe connected to the clean side. This not only reduces intake noise, but also increases water resistance. And the air filter is a foam type for premium filtering performance, that you can clean and reuse.

Sealed drive case (belt case) keeps out water and debris to minimize belt slippage. Special V-belt compartment drain plug requires no tools in the event that water enters the belt case. The frame members around the CVT case are now removable for easier access and improved serviceability

While we moved the air box, we also rerouted the V-belt intake and exhaust ducts. Both are mounted even higher to help reduce the opportunity for water and debris to enter the V-Belt housing.

Specially designed full stainless steel exhaust system features a forked header pipe for maximum power output and a screen type spark arrestor in the muffler to protect “Mother Nature”.

Heavy-duty AT25 x 8-12 front and AT25 x 10-12 rear tires provide excellent off road traction and further boost ground clearance. Note: although these tires look like ATV tires they have a much higher load rating than a standard ATV tire. And the SE2 version adds aluminum wheels for a little added style.

Revised cargo bed can pack a total of 181kgs (400lbs) of payload. The dumping function is aided by spring loading to make tipping the dump box easier. The outside panels of the box are plastic to resist dents and rust. The inner box rear has been redesigned using fewer parts for a cleaner look. There are 4 tie points inside the cargo bed to insure load security.

Heavy duty rubber cargo bed mat helps to protect the cargo bed from scratches and dents.

Convenient, quick remove tailgate is supported by detachable “lanyards” just like a pick-up truck. The gate travel is limited by the lanyards.

Center mounted automotive style trailer hitch receiver is located at the rear of the frame. Towing capacity is 550kgs or 1212 lbs.

Large, specially designed bucket seats are extra plush and supportive for all-day driver and passenger comfort. Each seat has a small drain hole to allow water drainage in the event the unit is stored outside. Both seats can be quickly removed.

Full length heavy duty three piece skid plate and a heavy-duty front bumper protects the frame and lower components of the Rhino from rocks, logs and stumps. Rugged, large size plastic front and rear fenders with inner guards offer excellent mud/splash protection.

High tech, console mounted digital LCD meter with fuel gauge, speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, hour meter, clock, battery voltmeter, 4WD status, transmission gear indicator, and Parking Brake indicator.
