Best UTV for work

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody! I’m new here and I wish to request for your help and advice. I hope to find dispassionate opinions.

I need to buy a UTV only for work. My priorities are reliability and torque. I need to climb (and descend) clayish very steep slopes, one with a small sliding rock surface (maybe 4 feet diameter, where rains “washed” clay) at a narrow point of the trail, so one side wheels have to ride on the rock. This trail is just at cliff edge at this point. A tractor struggled hard with this place recently to climb because wheel sliding on rock surface.

Big Red has engine brake that would be good for my need. I do not need a great cargo capacity, but it will be appreciated from time to time. I’m concerned about plastic bed strength. Honda does not inform about power or torque. Basic model has no roof or windshield.

What is new on 2013 Big Red in regard to 2011 model? I may get a good price on a 2011 apparently new one (clearance).

Otherwise, Club Car XRT 1550 seems good too. It has hard plastic roof, windshield, power steering, tilt steering, and 2 years warranty (Honda only 1). Does it still have carburetor? It seems out-of-date.

Kioti Mechron seems to be rock solid and has other advantages, but dealer is an issue (far from my place and bad service).

Kubota RTV 900 also seems to be rock solid but is much more expensive.

Rhino 700 has engine braking, but no roof or windshield, and less cargo capacity (only 400 lb).

Gator XUV 825 is 20 % more expensive than Big Red, without power steering, tilt steering, roof and windshield, and only has 1 year warranty.

Polaris seems to have several good items but less reliability.

So, I’m expecting your opinions. Thanks!

I have been more than happy with my Joyner trooper and it has 5 speed manual and rear and also front diff that locks up for extra traction.

For cargo i has built a payload box like a pick up have for my trooper it worked very good for my needs also

Python is 2wd and renegade have smaller engine so id probably suggest trooper the most..

Also trooper use a 4 cylinder efi engine and 5 speed manual transmission where all other companies so far use v twin engines and cvt (if belt get wet it slip...an disadvantage) also if you are more interested in trooper. Feel free to message me or go to Joyner section of the utvboard forum

      Earlier this week — and after much anticipation — Lexus unveiled the new 2022 LX 600 SUV. It's a luxurious American version of the new Land Cruiser and shares a V6 powertrain with the new Toyota Tundra pickup. The LX wasn't a shock; it's just about the most characteristically "Lexus" vehicle one could imagine, except perhaps the LS sedan. But Lexus also released a different vehicle you would not have expected this week.
      At the end of the LX announcement video, Lexus teased a new mobility concept called the "Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle," or ROV. It's an all-terrain vehicle — or, as we will choose to interpret it, a supremely badass golf cart — that runs on a hydrogen combustion engine. Sadly, Lexus did not include an utterly superfluous spindle grille, although the shape of the front end will certainly remind you of that shape.



      An ATV makes perfect sense as a showcase for hydrogen combustion. One of the technology's most significant drawbacks for current production use is that it can't produce as much power as gasoline combustion engines with the same size engine footprint. So a low-speed wood path cruiser could get away with far less power than a recreational on-highway vehicle.

      Hi
       
      Need advice on a fuel filter.  This is a 2019 Coleman 550 Outfitter.  Manual said to change fuel filter.  Mine was assembled without a inline filter between the in tank fuel pump and the injector.  I called Coleman, they told it was supposed to have a fuel filter.  They sent me a metal inline filter and two clamps.  The fuel line has what looks like an aluminum outer cover.  I’m assuming the fuel line is a rubber one.  Before cutting the line I looked at the metal fuel filter to see the direction of flow.  Nothing marked on the filter.  I called Coleman.…. They couldn’t help me, even after speaking to a Tech rep.   It’s fuel injected, so I don’t want to screw this up.  Does anyone have any ideas?  Should I throw this filter away, and buy something else?  I have replaced plenty of fuel filters on lawn mowers etc, but all were clear plastic, with directional arrows.  Since this fuel injected, I’m thinking I must ypuse the special clamps, that require special pliers to tighten, and I might need a pressure capable filter?
       
      thanks

      I have an American Landmaster LM500 with an old style snow plow hook-up.  Unfortunately, the mounting bracket broke & I lost the key part where the plow receiver connects to the cross bar with two pins.
      I checked with customer service & they said...

I believe they are sold as a kit though and they are not cheap, part # 15329. I’ve included a photo below since the web store does not have a photo for that part.

      I checked with our parts department and neither the kit or the components are available as that was the older style hook up system. The only option at this point would to have something manufactured. All of our current plows are either dual actuated or winch hookup so we would only have components for those models as of currently.
      In the picture, below, it would be item #5 (the one with the two mounting brackets that hold the pins that the plow mount latches onto) - not the top one in the picture, but the one below t hat.
      I have all the other parts - but the missing part is critical to mounting the plow.
      Does anyone happen to have an old one they could part with - or have an alternative solution?
      The rig wasn't optimal, as you had to use the winch to raise & lower the blade & manually adjust the angle.  It kept falling off when I was plowing snow - as the pins that hold it in only have a groove for a pin clip & they would often get knocked off & then the plow would hang down & you'd loose the pin - then it would get all messed up.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.  I am thinking of going to a welding shop to see if they can create something - but it will still have the same limitations as before - the pins are highly specific and not cheap
