Great!! It's been several years since I purchased mine. But they are great guys to deal with and have the best prices around.

I use a Grizzly 600 with no problems so far but it does limit you and place alot of strain on any atv. I really want a tractor but have basically made an agreement with myself that I have to get out of college and get a career before I buy one lol

I am shopping to replace my 1994 Polaris sportsman that has just about had enough. I need utility and food plot service and want to look for something with some pulling power(relatively speaking). It has been so long since I shopped and I know there are some really strong machines out there. Side by sides would be great if I can afford a good used one. What do y'all think would be good choices.


I have a 400 yamaha kodiak and love it but i would get a 550 with the independant suspen. and power steer.....this unit is a beast and it is an auto on the tranny and i can tell you it is da bomb. I use mine very regularly and pull a 340# disc rated for it and a drag harrow 150#s to work food plots and it is an awesome atv. below is a pic of hauling lime cart and i have thrown out 50,000 pds of lime with this set up manually . that is a 10cu ft cart and i load about 450 per load.






With drag harrow,before and after shot.





With disk..

I have that same trailer that I pull with mine and have also pulled an old disc that really does a pretty good job. That Yamaha has always interested me. Thanks for your pictures and comments.

a small four wheel drive tractor should go anywhere a utv will go

LOL, i'll give ya $5.00 and let you try to drive my tractor up and down one of my ridges. As long as you pay the repair bill and someone to put it back up on the wheels. ;\)
Any tractor has a much higher center of gravity [can you say top heavy] than a UTV, and roll over a lot easier. Beleive me....I know.
Going up wasn't so bad, it's the coming back down that's a killer.
