Trying to pick a UTV

Funny how different areas have different opinions of UTV's...  In my area the landmaster has a far better reputation than any thing you have mentioned. Whatever machine you decide on do a thorough check on parts availiability!!  Don't go off someones sayso, do check....the biggest complaint from consumers is not being able to find repair parts and information to make the repairs.  The landmaster is assembled in the USA and parts are availiable in my area, the other models are not. There are some Hisun dealers in the general area but parts can be hard to come by even from our dealers, many items on backorder and have been for some time.  Just my two cents worth...To bad you could not come up with enough to get a Kymco UTV as they are awesome machines. They have the lowest consumer complaint per 1000 machines made of any UTV manufacturer!!

I found with my happily now sold Sportworks, now Landmaster that these uts are maybe assembled in the US but parts are sourced from Venezuela, China etc. After about 5 years parts become unavailable. Pay a bit more and do not buy any "assembled in America" utes. Polaris etc. you will always be able to source parts.

Soon as a gas strut goes which buggers your steering etc, cannot be sourced your utv is worthless. Yes other utv shocks do not have the same threads and ends that are required. Also these "assembled in America" U joints for the 4 wheel drive tend to break easily when stressed.

Go to any dealership that sells made in America utvs and ask their parts guy about availability of parts from "assembled in America" utvs.

They have had plenty of people trying to match up parts that they cannot match.

I had to remove the hardness on a strut to machine down the diameter and re thread it. Then heat it and quench to bring back its hardness. 

A lot of work because parts are not available 5 years later.
