800xt vs 1000xt

Hi. Just wanted to get everyone's thoughts about the commander 800xt vs 1000xt. Biggest would be the power and speed. Using it for yard work and pulling in pier and Shorestation in the fall. Also some rail riding. Need 4,500 pound winch for sure. What would you guys buy?? Thank you

Not much difference in power or speed till you hit 50 mph then the 1000 starts to shine . They both run same top end speed.

Thank you. I was told the 1000 xt has much more power and i would tell the difference. What's the top end speed of both machines?

When I bought my '14 new, I debated on the 800 vs 1000 problem.

73 MPH vs 76 MPH, and 15 HP more for just over 3k USD.

Decided that if I need to go faster I'd get a Maverick.

What do you think of the power of your 800?

I have a 1000xt and my daughter and son in law have an 800. Personally I don't think there is any real difference for 90% of riding but then I don't go for speed. The one upgrade I would definitely spend the money on is from base to XT.

I will be plowing snow with it which is the reason I ask about power. I really appreciate everyone's comments. Thanks

I drove an 800R. The power was great. No lack for sure. I bought a 1000R and could definitely tell a difference.

The 19 1000 was bumped up to 92hp vs the 11-18 which was 85hp. I think the 800 is still 71 hp.
