Which Side by Side is the quietest on the market? My BIL has what I think is a Bad Boy Buggy that is a hybrid gas/electric. 4x4 preferable but speed is not a factor at this stage of life.


Why don't we have time to do things right the first time, but always have time to do things over, and over, and over?

electric is the only quiet one but proceed with caution - depends on where you want to use electric and the landscape - if it is rough country and long drives do not do electric - you will be sorry. there are some after market kits you can put on regular Side by sides that quiet them down


You can't fix stupid

On a mule pro fx’ series it's like $12 bucks for a walkers 45 degree elbow extension. Knocks it down 3-6 decimals depending in position

the Mule SX is pretty quite to. you can hold a conversation while driving, or idling.

It should be worth a dry. Depending on how close you are to a charge

What l have seen you need to make as much noise as possible. Drive around and throw out corn. Soon they will associate the noise with corn and being fed. Works great.

I currently own 8 UTVs and have had probably close to 20 different ones over the past ten years. Kubota, Polaris, Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki.


My latest purchase, the Mule Pro FXT, is the quietest one I have ever had.

If you put a 45 degree elbow extension it gets even quieter

That has been my experience, deer are no longer scared of tractor or RTV.

Pickups idling along below 10 mph are definitely the quietest, I love my Kawasaki Teryx with the 800 cc motor, its really quiet until you rev it up.

Do you have a link?

I currently have a Pioneer, Ranger, and BadBoy Hybrid. The Pioneer is quieter than the Ranger, but the BadBoy is obviously the quietest in electric mode. Downside to the BadBoy is the suspension is pretty rough and it's not very good for a workhorse vehicle. Nice to sneak around on hogs at night, but barely serviceable if you doing a lot of work with it and hauling corn to fill feeders.

Have you ever watched a farmer/rancher feed cows. The cows know the sound of their truck and come running, and they blow their horn to move them from one pasture to another.
