    I have a kawasaki praire 360 and it is great. Suzukis and arctic cats are pretty tough too

    I love my Arctic Cat 400. I had a Yamaha Wolverine for years that was awsome as well.

    I had a arctic cat 400 manual. I thought it was the best thing. But it was 2/wd. So I sold it and bought a arctic cat 500 4x4 auto. I love the cats but it is my personal opinion.

    I have always liked the sportsmans. they might be the heaviest quads too, so that helps.

    the price is probally reasonable, I havent kept up on atv prices, but a quad with only 126 miles is brand new. I have at least 8000 on my 97 sportsman 500 and it still runs like a champ.

    330 atp

    I have a 330 ATP...at my dads place we have two polaris 500's....I like the power they have and speed but this ATP has low down power for pushing/pulling that is just awesome...my neighbor has a 660 grizzly and mine out pushes his....same plow system on int....just my opinion but if your using if for work and not riding trails then go get an atp and enjoy.....:bluebounc

    one of my best friends has a 330 magnum. It has alot of low end. He has the glacier 48" minute mount plow on it. It is a nice atv but it doesnt have enough umph and power that I need/want. Plus I like the looks of mine it looks stronger with all the steal grill and stuff. Ya atp's are good work quads with the dump box. I use it for work and play so I would rather have the back rack. I am thinking about getting another atv this spring for a second one. I am looking at the DVX 400

    I'm a pretty big polaris fan after having owned a 500 for close to 15 years....the ATP I have was a demo unit that I tested out for a local dealership hauling hay racks and using for working up remote areas with a disk....it isn't fast, about 35 top end, but it has the power in just the right spots for me....it almost never spins the tires until it bottoms out...lol..I also use the dump box often..usually for dropping hay for the horses...just ride up, hit the lever, and go.

    I have been meaning to ask how much can that dump box hold?? And does it dump manually or electronically?

    it's supposed to hold 250lbs I think but....

    I have put almost 600 pounds in it (on level, smooth ground) (hauling salt bagspayup) and not had a problem with it...I have a manual dump. It's pretty nice because you can reach the lever from the seat....:bluebounc
