polaris all day long, then can am and then the cat. i have a 570 4 wheeler and it pulls like a beast. fuel efficient, comfortable ride, absolutely no issues. hauls me 230 pounds, my wife and corn with no issues, also have pulled a 10 foot trailer with 1000 pounds of corn and 3 feeders, a 250 pound guy and some other stuff with no problems. i tested out several atvs when i got mine, including a cat and can am. while the can am was more aesthetically pleasing and seemed cooler. i went with the polaris. you'll hear guys that say theres recalls, or have been and there have nut there are on any vehicles and manufacturers. just my preference i picked something that was the best of all the worlds i wanted. plus its pretty fast lol

I'm a big Polaris fan, personally.

If you are ever looking for add ons, check out bigcountryoutdoors.net to see some of their accessories - they have them for almost every UTV.

depends on what your main use will be.........if you have a few kids get the polaris crew not real nimble but safe for the kids I have the new 2014 900 crew........before the crew I had a 2010 800xp (not a crew) and it was easier to get around and fits on any trailer the crew fills up my little 16ft trailer but you can put some things in the back seat and bed.......main use is on the deer lease and at the house on field roads no mud hogging or hot roddin.

I'm getting ready to get the new ranger 900 crew. Not needing super fast but haul four people and stuff around the ranch, it's perfect.

Terryx two seated for hunting you can't beat the three warranty and as far as the rangers go they have a few known problems that I wouldn't want to deal with personly but to each there own

I have one for five years never had a problem I knew about Kenneth. I'm sure the Terryx salesman can tell you the ranger has problems.

Ok I bought one.. I had to think about 3 things to justify the expense beach during off season, hunting a having fun camping and trail riding. Although the one I bought is rated for 300 lbs rear cargo I think that is plenty for dear or hog. If I need more it does have a hitch and tow rating of 1,500 lbs for the dear lease I will buy the mini trailer for it.

NOT SURE HOW THAT CAN BE CONFIRMED DUE POLARIS RANGER BEING THE MOST POPULAR FOR MANY YEARS AND STILL LEADING THE SXS INDUSTRY IN SALES, IF POLARIS HAS SO MANY PROBLEMS YOU THINK PEOPLE WOULD STOP BUYING THEM. ALL I KNOW IS I LOVE MINE AND NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH ANY ONE OF THEM.

I own a ranger also and when I here people talk about problems with them here is what I say "4 out of 5 utv's sold are rangers so the more you have out there the more things that can go wrong." By the way I have never had any problem out of my 2011 800xp.

Waiting for a review from you on the Wildcat. My FIL is looking to buy one.

I hate to burst your bubble, but you can't legally ride those on Texas beaches, Texas beaches are highways. You can drive your registered vehicle, but no OHV's

I see golf carts on the beach all the time. What is the difference (other than gas motor vs electric)? I ask out of ignorance because I don't have a clue.
