My family moved from Illinois to Leadville Colorado about 3 months ago. Leadville has a lot of trails to ride and some fun off road stuff that i would love to start getting into with my boys. I currently have a 04 HD FXD Superglide that i might sell or trade for a UTV. My question is are there any UTV that are good solid used side by side that i could find for about $4500 or $5000? If not I will keep saving for something. If so what brand and year should i be looking for? Thank you for your help!!
I have a Hisun 400 UTV that has developed a sneaky oil leak from the end of the black plastic thing protruding from the side of what I think is the transmission on the driver’s side. Looking for any guidance or advice as to what this thing is and whether it’s fixable.
Looking to buy at a USED Side by Side. Problem is I don't know that much about them but here is what I know.
I'm not a speed racer, it's low and slow for me but I need to get up and down some major hills. We have used Yamaha Rhino's (450, 660 & 700) with good success on the ranch where we are hunting. Kia. Mules need help getting up but The Honda Pioneer also needed help going up and are scary as hell coming down and dangerous in the mud coming down. You are dead if you blow any of the corners. The electric wouldn't go up the easy road, so the big hills are out of the question. The Quads all do fine going up & down but I'm 70 yrs old and tired of muscling a Quad around.
I think what I need is a 4x4 with a high/low range shifter & locker (like the Yamaha Rhino has). The Honda is so nice to drive but dangerous coming down hill with no low range, do the newer ones have it? Trying to find info but hard to wade through it all. So what am I looking for (besides a Rhino).
Lots of brands out there that I know nothing about: reliability? prices? HP, gearing, after market parts available, etc? A few I never heard of before?
Thanks for any/all help/advise/thoughts/etc

I'm new to and as green as green can be to the UTV world and looking for recommendations on purchasing my first UTV.
I've done a few searchs but thought it would be quicker to just ask for some help to start with.
I'm looking for something for what I'd call general purposes.
Plowing snow off our paved driveway at home and then trailering it up to our cabin in the woods to plow the dirt road up there. Do some tree maintenance on our properties, pick up and move down limbs etc...
Other then that we'd like to take it out on the near by trails and have some fun with it. Nothing crazy, we're not looking to jump mountains or race or anything like that but we would like something we can ride around with and depend on.
Any recommendations? What's out there and what should we be looking for? Brands, makes, models, options etc.....Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
