handyhiker 10 Posted October 22, 2012 The wife and I are looking at getting a Ranger next spring. Most of the duties for the Ranger will be, plow the drive, haul some fire wood, use the dump bed for garden waste hauling, haul some mulch and dirt as needed around the yard. I have been looking at the specs for both and here are my thoughts, please give me your opinions. -I like the fact the 500 is fuel injected. I like the fact that the 500 has ith insterments. -The 400 is cheaper, don't really need the extra horse power. I really don't plan on any trail riding, if I do it will be limited. Just want a good, dependable machine. as of now, I am leaning tward the 500 if nothing else than the F.I. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Like what you are reading?
