looking for a new ATV

I've been looking for a new ATV for awhile..but i can't bring myself to one choice. I'm looking for one that can be used just to ride around in the trails, then hook up a plow and use it for plowing duty on the farm. Anyone have any suggestions? I've looked into the scramblers, but i want something bigger...

How much do you want to spend? I would look seriously at the new Yamaha Grizzly 700 if that is not out of your budget.

budget isn't really much of a concern...I need to get a loan for the new truck any way. Do you own a griz? Are they fun to wheel, and still good for work?

snow, snow, snow

I really wish i had boughten an ATV by yesterday...we got about 10 inches at my house, in some places it was 6 feet deep, others it was 3 inches. Drifted pretty bad, but luckily I have the John Deere 4440, or else i wouldn't have been able to get out of the garage.....i'm sure the 750 with a 60" plow coulda helped out...

This may have been the best choice for you. With that much snow this might be the only thing that can get you around.

This is our Project quad for the ATV section. There will be a story on these tracks real soon and watch the main atv pages for the build of what might be the most comfortable and most mobile ATV on the market.. And you can take a passenger along for the excitement as well... Keep up with us as we build this monster..
Please contact me with any questions about this quad or the products we install on it throughout the build..
Thanks ,
