EVERYTHING you NEED to know about the Can-Am Maverick X3 A-Z, PART 5 (S-Z)

You’ve probably seen the YouTube video of a Maverick X3 X ds Turbo beating a 2017 Polaris RZR XP Turbo up Oldsmobile Hill at Glamis sand dunes.

The X3 is stronger than even a 188-Hp RZR from 0 to 20 mph, but the X3 X ds in the video also had larger paddle tires with more blades than the RZR.

For wheat harvests, teams of combines would work their way north from Texas as the wheat matured, and Dad would work alongside…
