you are opening a "ford vs chevy" can of worms here!!! most people are loyal to their brand, and all others are junk. I have had a couple different wheelers. I currently have an Arctic Cat and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! I liked the high clearance because I plow snow with it, plus I liked the color options (i got the orange limited edition) and the speed rack system, plus I just think the cats looks are the top!!

before the cat, I had a yamaha that gave me years of trouble free service as well!!

the main thing is to get you list of what you want in a wheeler and go from there. there aren't any bad wheelers IMO....most are made as tough as nails!! as long as you like it, that is what matters.

i think brute force, king quad, grizzly and the renegade and outlanders are pretty good. don't buy a used 2005 polaris I had to many issues to list. Have not looked into any cats but ride'm all then select

They are all pretty good....Like what was stated, give a list of what you are using it for and what you want out of it, you will get better answers

I'd buy a Yamaha over an Arctic Cat any day of the week.

The grizzly is a beast and a very good machine! I would go with that over the cat! But make sure you drive them all, drive a kawasaki brute and a can am! I have a 650 brute and wouldn't trade it for anything except maybe a grizz!!!

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!
    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
