Looking to buy ATV workhorse... help please.

We are just starting to look at ATV's and I have no idea where to start. Our main use will be plowing snow and horse manure. We also hike and camp (this year with twin 2yr old boys). I need info on a quad that can handle pushing well. Thanks for any input!

Well, like everyone most have an opinion.

Honda would be my reccomendation for you.

Why?
Well, Honda is still using mostly drum brakes. they get beat on a lot in the magazines for that, but in your aspect that is what works best. Fecal matter has a lot of acids in it and that acid loves to attack aluminum discs and really creates a bit of wear on the pads. Because drums are fully sealed, there is no way for the acid to attack the pads internally.

Honda's still use low gears that provide a lot of pushing and pulling power. Their tranny's are still mostly a gear dirve.

Have you check out the Titan 750cc 4x4?
I liked them so much I became a Dealer, and you can buy them for much less than those other brands. Use the Yamaha Grizzly Plow.
Here is a picture!

Goto http://www.jrfriesmotorsports.com/Titan750.html to see the spec sheet. I could even ship it right to your home! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
