What is your ATV choice?
« on: December 10, 2015, 12:02:06 PM »
What is your ATV and why? I'm in the hunt for a new 4wheeler and looking to see what everyone else has? If you have something that isn't listed let me know. And if you do have one of the ATV's listed let me know what make and model it is. If you would also include Pros and Cons to your own rig let me know. I don't want any bashing going on because this is like the ford vs chevy vs dodge debate. I just want to get a general idea. I'm leaning towards a honda rancher, foreman, or rincon.
aim high.....miss high

Have 2 Ranchers and a Rubicon, they are all bomb proof.

My family and I all use Honda's now. I have ridden a Polaris and a Yamaha and wasn't impressed with either. Any popular name brand will probably be fine but for me it's a Honda.

I like my danners, they seem to be pretty reliable and take me far

I use an old 2004 Suzuki eiger 400. Nice light quad that can go through most stuff and sometimes when I am stuck I can lift the backend up and throttle which will get it outand saves me winching. With a heavy load it is a little underpowered. My next quad will have more power but I will probably keep this one too.

been using the Yamaha grizzly for the past 15 years and its been flawless over 8000 hard miles, and plan on getting a Polaris Rzr side by side this year, If I was going to get a new 2up it would probably be a Can-am  , what ever brand you get make sure its a 2up or your going to be screwed if you ride in Montana and look up the law passed in 2007 it covers a lot of dumb stuff like how much weight you can carry such as you cant carry more weight than is labeled on the racks of the bike which means you cant legally carry a deer on most bikes and they are giving fines for it .
Bury me with my bow,I will die with it in my hands hunting elk.

I don't use quads for hunting, but am on them often for work. I've had 2 polaris sportsman's and can't recommend them in good faith. I have an artic cat now that seems to do everything I ask it to.


Guys I know wiht both Honda's and Can-Ams have great things to say, Not doing any recreational riding I haven't had the need to upgrade yet but when I do I'll be looking at a Honda or CanAm

I run the can am 800 s.  Solid machines,  heard complaints about electrical issues but my wife and I both ride them and love em. Power houses.. bighorn 2.0 's and you can go can anywhere. I run a winch on one them for the occasional bad situation.

Will be going with the polaris trail 900 tho as an addition, hard to beat it when it comes to the side by sides.

Upgraded last year to an Artic Cat 550 with EFI and power steering.  Great machine.  No issue hauling out myself, adult son and a full cow elk.

Honda's are usually the most bulletproof but I drive a Polaris sportsman 850
