Thank you.....I will take a look at those you all suggested. I am looking for something to get around the farm on and not have to walk so far. Also to get my salt licks, tree stands to different locations without having to carry them on my shoulders. I thought it would be better to buy one side by side instead of two four wheelers for me and my dad.

I had a Polaris Sportsman 500 for many years and never had any problems except replacing the starter. I sold the Sportsman in 2011 and purchased a new Ranger 800. I really liked the looks of the Razr but needed the extra carrying capacity of the Ranger for hauling treestands firewood etc. Since I live on a farm I drive it just about every day, I probably put more miles on mine in a month than the average rider puts on his in a year. Sometimes I work it hard, pulling logs out of the woods, pulling a disc in some of my out of the way food plots, etc.
So far I have yet to have the first problem.

Depends on what you want out of it. If your going to play in it then you can't go wrong with the RZR, or the Wildcat. If you want to get deer out of the woods and use it for hunting then I would not even think about buying a Ranger. We use them at work and all of them are a P.O.S. I would go with a Arctic Cat or a Rhino. But bottom line you are going to get 1000 different opinions on stuff like this. It's just like buying a new bow or a new car. It's up to you on what you like, what fits you the best. Go drive them all and then decide

My dad just bought a Massimo from Tractor Supply. Its the 4X4 with the diff lock and all the works. Very similar to a rhino and cheaper than most of the others. I was skeptical at first, then we took it for a trial run the other day! Im no skeptic now! That sucker is a beast. We ran across a guy with a 4 wheeler broke down at the bottom of a big hill that was no exageration, a little greater than a 45 degree angle for about 40 yards or so. We hooked him up and pulled him straight up the hill with no problem. And you should have seen some of the stuff we took that thing through. I was amazed at what that thing would do, and for much cheaper than alot of the others out there! Its a true work horse!

We sell accessories for all of them, and I have owned several different brands over the years. Have used them for hard core offroad at mutliple events around the country, to hunting in the mtns of Idaho & Colorado, to the swamps of FL. Currently own a Ranger and it has held up pretty well, although it took the dealership a year and multiple trips back & forth to finally detect a bad throttle body. Purchasing the extended 5 year warranty on it was a very good move. First extended warranty I had ever bought on anything. Bought a new Rhino back in '06 and it blew up 3 mos out of warranty....learned my $2,500 lesson then.

There are 5 times more Google searches performed each month in US for Polaris Ranger Parts & Accessories than any other UTV.
In terms of stuff we sell:
#1 - Ranger
#2 - RZR
#3 - Mule
#4 - Kubota RTV
#5 - Prowler

IMO stay away from Kubota rtv they have zero power. Ranger, rhino, gator, prowler, big red, will be your best bet. Mules aren't bad but it seems like they do have some trouble but for the most part they are ok. Ranger big red rhino you can't go wrong.
