I have never rode with a Big Red but from what I have heard they are fine machines just real slow. I have heard for around the farm they are alright but on the trails they lack in performance and speed.

I have heard nothing but good things about the Ranger but most people will tell you for reliability the Rhino is still the most dependable..

My recommendation would be to ride them all and purchase the one that suits you best...

Most of the newer machines are good machines just some are better in certain areas.... I have heard the cat is a little easier to flip due to weight distribution.

How does the rhino do ?? I watched one roll down a hill at Windrock (just below the windmills and probably 200 ft) only thing hurt was some beer !

I love the rhino... Only thing I don't like is the back brakes the wear out ever 500 miles or so.. on the 700 they change to 4 wheel disk which is much better you still only get 900-1000 miles(most people) but they are simpler to change..

The Rhino and Ranger are great options. If you want the bench go with the Ranger. If you want more of a sporty ride go with the Rhino or Polaris RZR. If you are not in a hurry Can-Am will be coming out with three models from what I have heard.

Can am and arctic cat is just like a john deere tractor way over priced and you love them or hate them.
When I got my mud pro it was $9300.00 out the door I could have got a brute force for $6000.00
but I wanted the cat and I am happy with it. Up here the can am's are selling for $11,000.00 for a 800
the mud pro 1000 is $13,000.00 it just seems crazy to me it is hard to get 5 years out of any brand the way we ride we have try-ed most all of them. I road my old bike 650 cat 3200 mile cleaned it up good got $3000.00 out of it so I road it 4 years for around $3000.00 cause I gave $6000.00 for it new.
It's not all that bad if you can get a good trade in out of your bike.
