Buy an ATV or UTV ?

Recommended Posts

Hi ! I just bought a home in the country with 5 acres and have a few trails to ride on. I am debating whether to get an ATV or a UTV. I am gonna need something to plow my driveway this winter and am gonna have some wood cutting to do also. My son and I also hunt these Illinois whitetails. Was leaning towards a Rhino,figured it could do about anything I would need to do,but they are pricey. Plaease give me your reccomendations as to what would suit my needs.

I think a Rhino would better suit your needs. It has a bed that can carry 400lbs with dumping capabilities. It also comes with a receiver to put a ball on and tow a small trailer. It also has a 1200lbs towing capacity. It is also nice that if you and your son go outhunting or just for fun, you both have a comfortable and your not riding chest to back.

When you decide to kick back on the side of a trail, the seats come out and make some handy little trail side lazy boys.

I had the same decision to make and initially wanted a rhino/ranger/mule. I got an ATV instead and couldn't be happier. They are much cheaper and can go more places than the UTV. I hook up a trailer to haul wood/dirt/rocks/whatever and it works great. I still think I would like to have a UTV but I really wouldn't have much use for it to justify the cost.

O, i'm sorry, I have one and they are real good on trails, they are very strong, this means that it could easily plow your driveway, since it has a solid axle you can tow alot of wood with it, I haul a 18 foot trailer around the deer lease with mowers and other stuff. The honda foreman is very well made and at Great River Honda in Mississippi you can get it for $5500, the back rack is pretty big and can haul a deer if you kill one. At my deer lease down here in Texas there is alot of mud and my foreman is real good for the mud, just get some ITP Mud Lite's.

Thats just my two cents.

O, also the yamaha rhino was claimed to be very dangerous and yamaha is getting sued over it so a polaris ranger would be more suited for you if you must have a UTV.

I have a yamaha rhino and it is not dangerous. The people driving them are dangerous. Like the guy who lost his arm from driving his rhino in a straight line at 15mph on flat ground and it flipped on his arm...ok.

      Happy New Year all! Remember not to operate any vehicles while under the influence, you could get busted or worse, you could get hurt or hurt someone else who's playing it safe and end up in jail. Have fun and be safe.

      This week, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) plans to outline proposed policy changes for ATV trails on state forest lands.  They will also be seeking public comment.
      Pennsylvania has more than 260 miles of ATV trails in state forests. The department is reviewing its policy to respond to increasing demands for riding opportunities and well as interest from local governments in expanding tourism.
      “The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance to DCNR when acquiring, developing and managing lands for ATV use by the public,” Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said.
      There had been a moratorium on new trail development, but the policy revisions now authorize DCNR to consider new ATV trails and connectors on state forest lands.
      “New ATV trails will be considered, while still balancing the protection of natural resources as outlined in the Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution, and the needs of all types of recreational users on DCNR lands,” Dunn said.
      In a 2016 survey of ATV users, more than 4,800 responded with many indicating a strong desire for more long-distance trails. Pennsylvania has around 285,000 registered ATVs. On state forest lands, ATV riding is allowed only on designated trails.
      Public comment will be taken at a meeting in Harrisburg Wednesday, January 22, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. Written comments can be submitted to [email protected]
      The deadline to submit comments is March 27.
      More information about ATV riding is on the DCNR website.

      I shot this footage last weekend. We ran a Honda Foreman along the beach and had a great time wakeboarding.

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?
