I am considering buying the YERF DOG model 3203 for my kids (and me!!) to run around with and just play. I have heard they are an excellent cart and quality for the buck. Anyone here have an experience with them??? THX

Yerf dog carts are decent. The thing to keep an eye on is the chain and sprockets from the engine to the axle. I have seen several of these wear out quickly. Ensure the motor is mounted straight, the sprockets are in line, and the chain is at the proper tension and you will be allright.

I have a Dawg 5.5hp and it will hit 39mph(clocked it), it's stock but pumped all the way up. They are very reliable. Mine is belt driven so I don't have to worry about chain and sprockets

Most yerf dogs are belt and chain driven. I had one (got stole while my second daughter was being born) that was a 2 seater with a 6 horse and live axle. It had the full suspension front and rear. I done a little playing with the "setup" and got it to handle corners in my yard real well. The only problem I had was with my weight,255, and my daughters,50, we were a little heavy for it. It still ran great, it topped out at about 40 also. Sorry, back to the one problem. The belt on the convertor/clutch would glaze over. I would just pop it off and run it through the wire brush on the grinder and it was good for a week or two. I sure miss that thing.

I just swapped a rebuild kit to a kid for a nice single seater with 6 horse tec. It only has about an hour on it but he tried to "make it faster" and took the motor apart. What he ended up doing was messing the plastic cam up. Ole well, at $185 I think I got a bargin if the motor ends up ok. If not its gonna get a 8-10 hp for true trail riding.
