I've been thinking about switching from my 2-up ATV, to a UTV (side-by-side) machine.
Anyone do the switch lately & any regrets? If so, what are they?
I have both as well. I mostly just use the atv for yard work. My honda pioneer is awesome and I use it for everything. The pioneer is mainly up north for 8 months and used everytime I'm there. It's used as a workhorse when it gets home too. It depends on your wants and needs I guess. I call them tools and not toys.
I'd love to...but that costs money. you can buy a nice Yammy Viking for 11,999 in port washington. you'll pay 9500 for a big ATV. If I was in the market for a machine, it would be a UTV.
Your only regret would be that you didn't do it sooner, I'd imagine anyway.
switch last year from my kaw to a CF Moto, got rid of the CF Moto and went to a Ranger 570, feels better for my hips but at times do miss my Kaw, in the long run the UTV is better for me as we take camping trips with the machines
if you like running off the path mudding , fast running stay with the ATV , but if plan on trips with the machines the utv is best buy as it has more storage area. Both have advantages and disadvantages , it be up to you what you like and want to do.
I bought one 14 years ago when low on funds . 2 wheel drive , underpowered and the company went out of business . Still use it for chores , and my daughter likes to drive it , and I'm happy it does have seat belts for her .
