Whats the best Ute for mud and water

Whats the best Ute for mud and water? I have been looking and I am leaning towards the Can-Am 800, what do you think?

I would say that the Can-Am will make a Great Mudslinger but if your goin deep you need to snorkel the airbox and especially the CVT so it stays afloat with no damage.
The Yamaha Grizz 700 is great as well and in the thick stuff the Power steering will come in handy.
Overall these two are very close competition.

Thank you very much and I do plan on snorkeling the air box and Belt area.

Polaris is a good bike for mud and water. Polaris and Can-Am both have great power to sling the mud.

As far as snorkeling goes the Honda Rincon is the best one. You only have to snorkel the airbox. No transmission to snorkel but it lacks in power and low end torque compared to the other big bores out there.

If you are looking for flat out power then I would go with the Can-Am or the Brute Force 750i. The Polaris 800 is no slouch either. Good luck with your decision.
