    John Deere Gator, Polaris Ranger, Kawasaki Mule, Yamaha Rhino...

    Anyone have opinions on any of these? Looking for the "Good, Bad and Ugly" of these machines.

    Thank you,

    I agree with the Kubota RTV. It is a nice versatile machine and it would be the only one that I would feel comfortable putting a real plow on. All the other ones you can get the 44" to 48" plows made by that company. A second choice would be a Polaris Ranger. Good overall vehicle and they are fast!;) The Gator is OK, but it is pretty light duty. The Mule I have heard not o good things about and that they are pretty cheaply made. I have no idea about the Yamaha one other than it looks like a glorified gold cart. What is cool it that Curtis makes a sander to fit in the back of all of these utility vehicles!
