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.

      Hello everyone, back from a crazy few months of riding, hunting and fishing! So I’ve added a storage bag to one of my bikes and loaded it up pretty good before we went out into the woods/trails etc.  My son questioned me and said what do we need all that junk for?  I told him you never know  maybe a flat tire water etc.
      Needless to say that junk came in handy.   So my question to everyone that hits the trails is what do you have or recommend to maybe take with you before you go? And what would be the one most important thing that’s a must have? 
      And also any recommendations on a  storage bag that’s not so costly and performs the best? I like my bag but not very good .

      I'm curious what all the ladies ride on this site and why!
      I ride a 2008 Yamaha Rhino 700. Just added a new roll cage, dual exhaust and some other things. Here are a few pics:

      I chose the Rhino because my arms and wrists get way too tired on a quad. I haven't tried a bike, but, I don't think my coordination would be good enough to handle that!
      I LOVE my Rhino though!!!!!!! It's the perfect machine for me.
      So, how about you????

      I like to ride in wooded and grassy areas. It takes my mind off the everyday routines and helps me deal with my father's cancer. Also gives me a reason to get involved with forums like this one.

      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?

      Not satisfied with the commercially available versions, Jonathan recently built an ATV spring compressor.
      In this video, he demonstrates using it to remove & re-install the spring on an ATV coil-over shock absorber.
      Mistake in video - the coil-over shock is not quite a McPherson strut.
      If you are inspired to build your own spring compressor, feel welcome to use any ideas from this video.
      Thanks for watching! Resurgence Small Engine Inc.
