Hello, brand new here to the forum and new to ATV ownership.

Have decided to go with either a 2010 Honda Rancher AT with power steering or a 2009 - 2010 Yamaha Grizzly 550 with Power steering.

Which quad would you recommend and why?

I'll post this same question on the Honda forum as well.

Advice is appreciated! Thanks.

Welcome to QUADCRAZY! No need to post the same/similar topic in both forums, we have a forum dedicated to "This vs That". I moved this thread in here and am removing your other one. Should make for an interesting topic. You could attach a poll to this thread also. :biggrin:

What kind of riding do you do? The Honda Corporation does not think that hitting mud holes and stuff like that is not smart ATVing so they do not market their quads to those people.

Both machines are extremely capable. The Grizzly will be the better choice for an aggressive rider. If you just want something to cruise on and enjoy the outdoors, the Honda will be the better machine as far as fit and finish.

Rancher Specs:

Length 80.9 inches

Width 46.1 inches

Height 45.8 inches

Wheelbase 49.4 inches

Seat Height 32.4 inches

Ground Clearance 9.1 inches

Turning Radius 10.5 feet

Curb Weight 623 pounds (Includes all standard equipment, required fluids and a full tank of fuel—ready to ride)

Fuel Capacity 3.6 gallons, including 1.0-gallon reserve

Grizzly Specs:

Dry weight: 600.0 pounds

Seat height: 35.6 inches

Overall height: 48.8 inches

Overall length: 81.3 inches

Overall width: 46.5 inches

Ground clearance: 11.8 inches

Wheelbase: 49.2 inches

Fuel capacity: 5.30 gallons

I agree with Stoobidbot, that the Grizzly may be tougher, and if you want to ride rough, it would be the better choice. I would also like to add that the Rancher is not incapable of being a decent trail rig. A freind of mine has an '04 Rancher 350ES, and he rode the hell out of it for the next 4 years, mudding, trail riding, jumping, and just beating the hell out of it in general. Granted, it is now damaged beyond conventional repair, but it was flat out abused on a weekly basis for over 4 years. If he would have just kept all four wheels on the ground, I think it would still be fine. It still runs and rides, but the swingarm is loose and it will take some refabrication of the mounts to properly fix it. Bottom line, considering the abuse and lack of maintenence, I thought it held up pretty well.
