I have never bought a 4 wheeler before.. but we are in a perfect place to need one ... What would you all recommend? Need one for small logging and clean up for campers. Maybe some web sites to look at would help me to decide.
depends on what kind of riding you are going to do and what kind of rider you are
If you are a inexperianced rider and looking for a work horse /sports quad one you could use to drag logs with , tow a trailer with , and still enjoy riding the trails with / with the wife or kids , I suggest the Polairis sportsman 400
in the end, before buying, try to ride as many quads as possible to get the feel you are looking for. also i would advise you to look in your local papers for a used fourwheeler, mainly because you can get one that is like new for as much as $1000 less than retail. its worth looking into. for what you are looking for, i would say you need a pure utility type fourwheeler. i had a Kawasaki Prairie 300 and it was a nice ride, it would have been good for what you are wanting to do. hope some of this helps.
I'm here to second raptor_rider's opinion. Polaris Sportsman models are the perfect work/play bike. Yes I do own one but only after extensive research and several test drives. Just thought I could save you some time.
stay away from polaris i found that the belt driven transmission is not up for heavy use or towing. i would recommend the honda rancher 350 4x4 or the foreman series.
there are a lot of hop up parts for the rancher if you need more power but can't aford the foreman's. my personal favorit it the RUBICON 500 it has climmed pulled or trudged through everything i've pointed it at.
Well I will give a PARTIALLY unbiased opinion. The KQ was a great quad, and is still a good quad... just I wouldn't get another. This bike is very light in the front, and way underpowered, the rear suspension os outdated. My next quad will probably be a Polaris...oups theres that word again. Other quads you would look into are the Foremans, Artic Cats, big bore Zukis, and the Kawasakis.
