Most versatile UTV for general purpose

Eddy G

Recommended Posts

Hey There,

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.

First off, welcome to the forum!

I have an older diesel mule, and I really like it. But the newer models are totally different from mine, so I really can't comment on those. It would help if we knew if you were looking for new, or used? Budget considerations? Unfortunately a heavy vehicle, with a straight axle is better for plowing snow. While a lightweight unit with independent suspension is best for trail riding. So you'll have to make a choice on primary use. Either will work for both uses, but won't be ideal for the other. Of course there's usually an aftermarket accessory to help to adapt the vehicle, but as an example, my heavy mule couldn't ever be adapted to be a rock crawler, and heavy mud is a challenge. But I can haul a half cord of wood in the back while pulling a trailer. Try that with a Rhino, and there'll be problems. That Rhino is a very adept vehicle, and with all the add-on parts and accessories available, like a turbo and such, it has the potential to be a beast. But I'm thinking it'll be too light to effectively plow snow.
