I've driven many different brands of vehicles. The cheaper brands, just feel cheap. That's just my opinion. I'd recommend buying a nice used vehicle, rather than a cheap new one. 

   You have to be honest about what its intended use is for. These can be very specialized machines. For example, a mud buggy, won't be very good at hauling wood. It'll work, but not well. 

   Bigger is better on these things. There's nothing wrong with the small ones, but the bigger ones hold more stuff. So unless you're wanting mud specific, or putting it in the back of a pickup...get a full size machine.

   Probably most important of all, is parts availability. Buying a recognized brand will be the best for this. 

  If I were buying a used machine, I'd look at a Polaris, or Kubota, for the bigger ones. Especially the Kubota diesel. And I'm definitely not a fan of computer controlled units. So older just makes sense to me.

Price range? Ideally, 6000.00 ish but if something nice comes along or great factory deals?

About 19 months back I researched UTV's myself, after 3 months of thorough research and much tire kicking and crawling up under around and thru I decided on a Kymco 450i UTV.  This machine has been awesome, trouble free, great reliability rating and used ones are very hard to find.  Factory service has been rated as extremely good and problems per 100 units manufactured are one of the lowest in the industry. Do yourself a favor and research the Kymco USA website and link the side x side area. Not a Chinese company but instead are made in Tiwain, they allow usa engineers and quality control into there country where Chinese do not.  Kymco also has a USA factory and parts supply and easy to get parts online or thru a dealer.  My local dealer was very cool, actually had an offroad track to test out the machines, with hills, mud, trees downed to climb over, just like a ride in the woods.

      Has anyone found aftermarket side mirrors that work with angled bars on the 800sx other than the super expensive factory ones?

      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.

      Hello All,
       
       I am trying to find a Scanner that is works for a 2016 MSU500. I found the Tiny Scan TS301 that looks like a decent Scanner but so far have not been able to get confirmation that this works on and older model. It has been stated that it works on the 2019 and newer but not sure about older models. It appears that the ECM/ECU/EFI modules are likely interchangeable between a 2016 and the newer 2019 and on but not sure of the Scanner. I am waiting for feedback from Hisun on this issue right now.
       If this unit is not usable for my model year has anyone found and a Diagnostic Scanner for the older machines, one that works and is Affordable?
      Thanks for reading my post and any information that you may have to share,
      Robert

      Hello everyone.
      Here I am showing our Green Scout electric all-terrain vehicle.
      All-terrain vehicle 6 wheeled, electric, side-turning. Rides, jumps, dances, swims, but does not fly. The drive is permanent (but you can turn off any wheel arbitrarily through the controller). The power of each wheel is 3 kW at its peak, the total power is 18 kW. Speed up to 60 km / h. Since the all-terrain vehicle is electric, it starts from a place quickly, drives silently (well, of course, the sound from tires and shock absorbers does not disappear).
      The idea of creating such an all-terrain vehicle came after the experience of operating the Argo all-terrain vehicle. The main disadvantages of the wheeled side-turning all-terrain vehicle are low ground clearance, lack of suspension. To get high ground clearance and suspension, there are two outputs on mini all-terrain vehicles - either electric drive or hydraulic. The hydraulics had to be excluded, since at temperatures below -30C it does not work, plus it always flows. As a result, we settled on an electric transmission. Each wheel is a motor-wheel. Naturally, the motor-wheels were being finalized to be able to be installed on an all-terrain vehicle and to be able to swim. The battery is iron-phosphate, all information on the battery, the charge is displayed on the smartphone. Control of the all-terrain vehicle through the on-board computer. Bicycle handlebar controls. Braking either with the sides through a turn of the steering wheel, or with the gas pedal of all wheels at once.
