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!!!

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
