Question about 400 vs 500 Ranger

Recommended Posts

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.

i'd go with the 500 myself. fuel injection will be good, and i think you'll have a better resale with the bigger cc ...

Yup, I think your are right. I really like the fuel injection and IF we resell at some point, I am sure it will bring more.

Definately spend the extra cash on the Ranger 500, the price difference is minimal but the ease of cold starts with the EFI alone is worth the price increase.
