I decided the same thing. FYI, I am getting the 610 XC version. Better tires, skid plates, and actually sits about 5" taller when I parked them side by side. The polaris Ranger is suppose to be better but costs significantly more and I walked around the shop and there were a lot more Polaris in there than the mules. 1 Mule and probably 6 Rangers. Talked to service manager and he said the mules are basic simple machines that is why they don't come in as often. Not as many bells and whistles to have problems with. Good luck with your purchase....thanks.
