Opinions of various UTV brands/models?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm doing a study on the side-by-side/UTV market and I'm interested in your opinions. It's extremely quick and anonymous and I’d be happy to share the results with the community.

Also, as a small token of my appreciation I will be having a drawing among respondents for a $50 VISA giftcard for those interested. It's not much but the most we can offer as a two person team.

Questionnaire Link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ORV17frm

The research isn't for any of these companies, I am just curious to see the opinion of the brands and new models. Thank you very much for your help!

Also, if you are interested in seeing the results from our previous report they are at the link below. However, please read it after answering the current questions, so as not to color your responses. Thank you!

2 years ago i got a cub cadet challenger 700 (hisun), for christmas.Came fully loaded and camo colored.After having it for 30 days found an oil leak from where the drive shaft comes out the rear of the motor (3 miles on it).It was in the shop for 7 weeks.Cub Cadet is very slow shipping parts out.The shop told me CC ships once a month to them.At 8 miles the same oil seal was leaking again.Another 6 weeks in the shop.This time it was fixed real good,not another problem there.Called CC and complained and they extended the warrante 6 months.Then at less than 9 miles a seal on the side of the diffy was leaking oil.Back to the shop for 8 weeks.After the break in of the motor ,there is a big difference in performance.great machine just bad customer service from cub cadet.The repair shop said thats why they stay away from cub cadet.For questions i call hisun s office in so calif.They even sent me a repair manual for free

Done taking the survey, in 2015 after much research I bought a Kymco 450i UTV. After 22 months and 800 miles I am happy to say it has been an awesome machine.  No problems, they have one of the lowest number of complaints per 100 machines manufactured of any brand. If anyone is in the market for a side x side do yourself a favor and look at the Kymco lineup.

      New to the forum. New to UTVs. New to Electric motors.  I just got a 2021 Hisun Sector E to help with moving stuff on my  steep 5 acre wooded mountain patch. Plus I thought it would be fun on the gravel roads in the "neighborhood". Because we are remote and part time to the property, I didn't want the hassle of dumping out old gas or messing with oil and filters and all the usual maintenance of a ICE. But the biggest reason for me was the noise. I test drove the Axis utvs at Tractor Supply Co and they were LOUD. Seemed to ride rough too. If you want quiet, then electric is the way to go. But it does come with a high price tag. And all the electric models are still in their infancy. So its a bit of a gamble too. I bought the property for quiet. I wanted to keep it quiet.
      I liked that the Hisun had the dry cell batteries so there is no maintenance of checking and adding water. I'm a little worried about their lifespan especially after one person's poor utube review about them. But the dealer said the company took that to heart so hopefully changes were made for better batteries. There were no Lithium battery options available anywhere near me. Polaris is supposed to have one later this year. I liked that the Hisun came standard with roof, windshield, winch and trailer hitch. I have had the sector for only one day and worked it and road it good. So far I have a big smile on my face. I wish there was a category for this model on the forum here. Meanwhile, maybe folks will share their insights/ experiences on this thread. I'd like to learn as much about the sector e as I can. There isn't much info in the owners manual.

      I am lookong into getting a utv to use around the hoise and farm, along with some easy trail riding. I won't be going crazy on the trails, but would like to take it into the woods some.
      Has anyone had experience with an american sports works Landmaster? I can't afford and really wouldn't want to spend 8,9 or 10 k on a ranger, rhino etc... Is this a good alt?

      I have a 2011 cf Moto z6. When the battery is hooked up it starts cranking on its own! Is there anyone else who has experienced this or could anyone give me suggestions on what it may be?
