Searching for first UTV, need suggestions


Recommended Posts

I stumbled across this forum while researching our first UTV. Budget is $12K-ish. It will be used to haul firewood so a bed is a must. My wife wants to cruise around our small rural village and the back rural roads. We are in Ohio so it would be nice if we could license it for occasional back road use? A cab and windshield would be a plus too. Need two seats side by side. She saw an American Landmaster in a lawn mower store which started this discussion. Open to any and all suggestions.

Kawasaki, Polaris and Kubota are what i call "the big three" for utility vehicles... you get the best bang for your buck without sacrificing QUALITY.

If you get down to the cheap machines (Hisun, Massimo, Coleman, etc)  that are loaded with features and cost only around 9,000.... you're sacrificing quality.

This.  100% correct in my experience.   Buy one of these three quality machines and cry once (at purchase).  Buy the cheaper brands and cry hard and often.

You want a full cab, and street legal? 

  How about a Japanese mini truck. You get the full cab, and options include 4wd, heat/ac also. Very reliable, and 40 mpg. Already set up for the street!

What is the name of that truck? I’d certainly check it out.

Don't know the actual name, but if you Google Japanese mini truck, there's plenty of information that pops up.

Thanks. We looked at several UTVs but the wife liked the ease of getting in and out of a standard height golf car better. We are old geezers so that is a factor that we needed to be realistic with.
