PostSubject: Any UTV side by side gurus here?   Sun Apr 10, 2016 3:55 pm

So I am looking for a side by side. I have it locked down to three. Just not sure which one I should get. I need something that can work around the house, plow in the winter, and hit the trail with ease. The three I have picked seem to offer the most for the money. But each has it's plus, and minuses. My first choice was the Polaris RZR 570 $10,299. it's major plus is that it is narrow enough to get on any ATV trail. My second choice is the Polaris Ranger 570 midsize $9995. It gives all the benefits of the RZR, but it is a bit wider making it hard to get it on the trailer, or get it on any trail that is marked for 50" wide or less. But it has a full tilting bed with fold down tailgate, and it offers more room inside with a bench seat and ease of getting in and out. The final choice is a Yamaha Wolverine 700 $10,995. It offers more ground clearance, bigger tires, more power, and a bed somewhere between the RZR and Ranger in size, but it is also bigger and would almost certainly require me to buy a bigger trailer. I am looking for any advice on which one I should get. I like them all, but am of course only buying one. Any help would be appreciated

Polaris RZR 570

Polaris Ranger 570 Midsize

Yamaha Wolverine 700

I got this.

I have owned a large SxS before and it is a blast, but it does not fit anywhere. Period.

Go with either of the 570 machines, depending on if you prefer more sport (RXR) or Utility (Ranger). Both have the great 570 motor, which has the same HP as the previous generation 800cc motor had, which is MORE than enough.

Personally I have my eyes on a 570 midsize Ranger with power steering, or a stock 570 Ranger with a Power Steering kit, whichever ends up being cheaper. I am waiting for the house to be done and settle into the mortgage for a bit....OR my Moose permit to come in, whichever comes first Wink

I forgot you were into ATVs Doug. I have decided that it will be one of the two Polaris units. If it is a RZR, I will add EPS. If it is the Ranger, I will buy it already installed. On the Ranger you only pay for the EPS. On the RZR EPS version you also pay for special paint, and wheels.
Thank you for the input. Phyllis and I are going down to drive each one this Sunday. She is leaning toward the Ranger as well.

And then there is this.

So after two months of going back and forth, and as late as yesterday afternoon looking at Kymco products, and everything in between, I came back to where I started with the vehicle that got my attention to the side by side world in the first place.

And the Winner is........

The RZR 570.




I should be picking it up in a couple weeks when it comes in. I will be getting a plow and winch for it as well.

Way better than that Jeep thing, I never really understood.

Better pick up a for sale sign or two. You know, just in case Wink

Glad you were able to settle on something.

Great decision!

When it's time for the winch and plow, give me a call. Unless the dealer gives you a smoking deal I should be able to save you some money.

I still don't get it. Smile

But congrats, dude! I know you've been thinking about it for a while! I hope you have a blast with it. Bring it to the next mod day. Wink

And just like that, I bought the 2 seat, midsize Ranger 570 with a winch. It was the last one in stock in green, and they were having trouble locating a RZR 570. Oh well. This is more useful and does 55mph.

Wise choice, that's exactly what I will be getting. The RZR is great, but this will do 90% of what that does and still be a tool, instead of just a toy.

If it is the Polaris brand winch, I believe they are a Warn Vantage 2500 rebadged, a good winch.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I like the seating position in the RZR better, but other than that, they are essentially the same animal. Sitting here waiting on a quote from my insurance company so I can go sign the papers on it.
