    Those are both too new for me to know anything about. Bought my first/last a decade (or so) ago, Polaris Mv7 that has worked all of it's life between plowing, pulling a York rake, hauling lumber and getting EMT and gear to injured riders far in the woods. No complaints on how it works but it weighs (literally) half a ton.

    I had one for a few years. A lot of fun. Very fast with better ride than the solid axle sport quads. Just be aware of the maintenance on the ktm engine, not that it is too bad, just fairly frequent oil changes which are easy. The only thing I had to do on mine was replace front wheel bearings, more preventative than anything. The rear “diff” was making a little noise when I sold it.

    Thanks for posting. I read somewhere about the frt wheel bearings being a known problem!

    Our new toy, 2019 Polaris Sportsman 570. EPS, heated everything, Polaris Blade and a generic Chinese LED thingy. We shall soon find out how she'll deal with mud, snow and general abuse.

    Wow, looks great. Where do you live in Spain to get enough snow to use the plow?

    Took the grandkids out for a ride. Look through the rear of the roll cage. Moose.

    One of my guests for the weekend was on my Brute when the moose crossed the
    road. We didn't know at the time it had a calf on the other side of the road.:eekers

    That one is used up in Germany. But even so, we might use it once a year. If it does snow though, you really need it.

    My 2004 Yamaha Wolverine 350. I took this pic last fall after installing my new KFI plow setup. Last winter was my first winter plowing snow with an ATV. Worked great, exceeded my expectations.

    Suzuki KingQuad 750. Not as fun as the Can-Am Outlanders, but much higher quality bike. It's fancy.

    been using a dinli 800 evo for years for hunting / feeding the boars etc..
    Very reliable, about 3500kms only rough terrain and / or pulling trailers or plowing snow. Sadly the company is non-existant anymore, afaik.

    It's that time again. The Mv7 is currently attached to a boat trailer while I try to get some last minute work done before the boat either goes into storage or maybe/hopefully heads down to the Keys to play a bit this winter.
    We had heavy frost over the weekend (we have had blizzards at Halloween but realistically plowable snow arrives more like Thanksgiving or later), back up in the 60's today, going to have to guess whether there might be some 'fun' time left or should the plow go on soon to prevent having to crawl in the snow to attach it again after waiting too long? Once the plow push plate is bolted on off-road comes to an end so as to not bend the attachment tabs, lots of rocks around here!

    Help deciding on ATV/UTV. Never owned one.

    A handful of guys I know are planning to cross Newfoundland next summer. Approx 10 days covering some 1200kms. Been a bucket list of mine since the province tore up the railway in the mid 80s.

    http://trailway.ca/

    I'll be 2up with my son (12). Similar gear to what I'd have 2up motorcycle camping, split between camping and motelling.

    Depending on my situation over the winter I may go full in and buy a new Yamaha Wolverine X2 SxS, or cheap out and buy a used capable ATV.

    I assume FI, independent suspension, 400-500-600 + cc, etc. What are your top 2-3 machines to pull this off. Possible old enough to lower cost, but new enough to be up to date, clean, and low mileage.

    Yamaha always comes to the forefront for me. But priced higher than the others around here.

    Thoughts.
