I want around a 400 or so
Ride Alone on Lease
Will not start for 6 months in the off season

I am thinking Honda Rancher 420 as it is fuel injected. Any other considersations as I want something
that is dependable and works for years to come with proper care.

don't think you can ever go wrong with a Rancher.

Can never go wrong with a Honda. Though I will say grizzlys aren't no joke. I would want a Honda but wouldn't turn down a good deal on a grizzly either. So I was officially no help in this post! roflmao

I have a 420 rancher that I got in 2007 after the 350 rancher I had for 18 years broke down to the point it wasn't worth fixing. Simple maintenance and they'll last you a long time.

What are you going to do with it at the lease? In all honesty you can likely get by with a Recon 250. My dad has a 2013 and it's a great machine and has more power than my Bayou 300 did. I rode a 420 and damn near scared myself with it.

No matter what you buy you'll need to prep it if you're going to leave it for 6 months at a time.

Depending what you want to spend, you can always go the route of a Toyota tacoma. 4x4 reg cab or ext. great wheelers and have heat and air! Think I might go that route and justify it by giving it to my son in 2 years!

I just ordered a new Tacoma double cab 4X4 this past weekend. You'll have to look long and hard for a good used Tacoma. They're rather popular it seems

Can't go wrong with a Honda. Disconnect the battery when you're going to be leaving it, or even better, add a small solar panel and a battery tender.

You can't go wrong with a Honda, they just keep going, have a 1986 250 still going. Just put new tires on this year , originals finally weather check to bad. Not 4x4 but can Tahoe a lot of stuff, hauled a deer on front and rear with two people on it.

Both of my ATV's (Honda 300 and Kawasaki 220) have been equally reliable. The Honda is 23 years old and the Kawasaki 18. Even the little 220 has gotten many deer and hogs out of the woods. And while both are 2WD, neither has ever been stuck in the mud. IMO, if you're one who doesn't mind dodging the worst part of mud holes (rather than one who looks for mud holes just to see if you can get through them), a 2WD will probably be all you need.

IMO, a 400cc (or larger) ATV works best for heavy load applications, such as brief towing of loads that would be too much for a smaller ATV. But if you only intent to use it to carry a few bags of feed, or the average sized deer or hog, something smaller will suffice.

I'd agree with the Honda, also be sure and use Stabil in your gasoline.
