What's Your Utv Sxs Brand?

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I was wondering what brand of UTV Buggy you all use?

I'm going to get one but can't decide if i want a used 2017 Yamaha Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE with 1,100 miles for 8,899 OR just buy a new Pioneer 500 or 700.

Nothing wrong with the used Yamaha Wolverine, save a bundle over a new Honda. The Wolverine is an awesome looking ride. I think the major difference is the Honda has a real geared  transmission, and the Wolverine has a CVT belt drive which works fine too.

Garikfox,

I grew up in Mesa and hardly recognize Queen Creek today, not to mention some of my favorite Dove & Quail Hunting spots.  Back in them days I owned a CJ5.  Small, but would get me back in the hills up washes that full size trucks had no chance.  I could parked it on many of my Dry Wash spots or a short haul of my equipment to my prospects.  Now, same goes for Side X Sides,  many of my Friends went wide, 4 seaters and such models.  I went with my old train of thought, as with the old Jeep of mine 50” wide Polaris 570.  Fits in the bed of my truck so no need to haul a trailer, truck gets me close and the RZR gets me on top of my Patches.  It’s a Mule and will get into spots my friends with the larger SxS have to walk in.  A couple trips back a Buddy radio’d me to inform me he blew a Drive Belt on his CanAm and needed a tool or two.  Arriving to his location and seeing what a pain to change the belt out made me glad Polaris made it simple access without removing a ton of stuff just to get to the housing of the Belt Drive.  Do more research and make sure what your choice is the rig you’ll be happy with for your needs or Family size.

Rick

Ive been looking at Japanese mini-trucks.  They fit what i need better since they have a 6 foot bed, and are still about the same dimensions as most utvs.  Just gotta buy one that is 4x4 with axle lock or dif lock and put offroad tires on it.  They also have a full enclosed cab and can be found with AC and heat, and can be made road legal in certain states.  

I just havent been able to justify any type of UTV since they all have tiny tiny beds, and cant get them road legal.

Hello Garikfox,

I have a Polaris RZR 570 that is 50" wide and it will fit in the back of my pickup truck. I have a storage box in the back bed of the RZR for all our detecting equipment, rain gear, lunch, etc. It's great on trails and small enough to maneuver in tight places. No problems so far as to reliability.

Garikfox - 

The min-trucks are actually pretty cheap you can find used ones with offroad tires already on them for around $4,000 to $6,000.

I bought the storage box at Walmart and it was a Contico brand. I did put a spacer between the storage box and the bed of the RZR and the reason for that was the heat that is generated from the engine it can get a little bit warm back there.

My Polaris RZR 570 is a 2012 model and you might pickup a older model pretty reasonable.

Good Luck with your search for a SXS!

      I was on my way to the central Indiana goldfields this weekend when I pulled off the Interstate highway at the  rest area and spotted this ? Kinda looks like a Unimog, but fitted up with a backhoe and dozer blade? Just what us prospectors might need....

      Upgraded from a Toyota Troop carrier(28yrs old) back in 2012 to a Hilux 4WD. Heading off this morn to new prospective area hit a bump not a jarring jolt going slowly in low range. Front strut busted limped home and removed photo below.
       

       
      Independent suspension, nice ride but not impressed but I do know I`m going back there, the Goddess of Gold is trying to keep me away.

      Northern Nevada gravel roads will tell you when your trucks tires are getting to thin! My last trip there, I couldn't plug the thumb size hole and had to trust my old spare for the last couple of days of the hunt and to tow the camper back to NorCal. I also noticed my hunting boots were getting my socks awful dirty and a few little rocks would sneak in as well, as I would boot a possible target. Well we made it home and ready to make some new tracks in the goldfields. Hunt report, after that big storm in the Rye Patch area the ground was hot and stingy with letting go of the gold. But, no skunks in our party of 8...beer was cold at camp for soothing the looks of our pokes and Baby & I, have some new shoes! Until the next hunt,
