I bought a new Qlink 700 Rhino Clone!

I just bought this new Qlink Frontrunner 700, and I think it is really nice. My budget was a big issue, and the machine seems almost machanically indentical to a rhino. I am impressed with the power. The aftermarket rhino cdi even works! I'll keep everyone updated

They are around 7k plus tax. It has the same motor as the rhino 700, but carburated. I know the axles,cdi,roof,windshield, and waterpump exchange with a rhino. This thing is a beast. I just put a cj seat in the bed, and will have a extended cage soon. The build quality seems top notch, with a 1 year warranty.

Is this one of those "I am a dealer in my secret life but I want to act like I REALLY can't afford a RHINO so I will promote this wanna be rhino". You sure know alot about what will and will not fit off the ORIGINAL Rhino. SO with that said.. what is really going on?

I wouldn't want one for Ohio with only 9.6 Ground Clearance. I think my lawn mower has more than that.

So what did you actually pay ? Hopefully not MSRP... My Yamaha dealer has 4 green Rhino 700s on the floor at $9,150.

I'm thinking that for the $1,150 difference I would go with the real deal and the sure bet..

The specs indicate that this is wider, lower and heavier with less horsepower than a 700 Rhino.

Either way.. competition is good so best of luck and keep us posted..

I paid 7k total. The frame is the same size. It has fender flares that make it wider, and the bed is 3" longer. I thought about a 450 instead, but they were still more. I'm sure that the Scorpion, Sunl, diamo, qlink, and rouch are all the same machine. The diamo was cheaper, but I couldn't catch one in. For the cdi to interchange, it must be a close copy. I love it so far, I admit I'm nervous. I got it from a big tractor dealer here, and the service seems to top notch in case something happens. He sells them as fast as he gets them in, so he's pretty firm on the price. I tried to go $6500, but no go. I'm waiting on those 4" hid's from checkers, the headlights are so-so!

It looks like the kink is supposed to be there, it matches the other side and is welded across. speaking of the welds-they look chinese don't they? All in all, it's one hell of a copy though
