    I’m currently in the market for a used wheeler. I’m just wondering what everyone’s opinions are on some of the models I’ve seen since I’ve been out of the loop on wheelers for some time. I’m in the 5-6ish thousand range. Suzuki King Quads,Brute Force,Grizzly etc..I’m not brand loyal. Mostly used around my property, snow plowing etc..but still able to provide a little fun factor if I go for a rip.

    when it comes to vehicles the most important thing for me is reliability. As such i prefer Honda and Yamaha for wheelers. I just bought a 2016 Kodiak LE with 500 miles on it for $5500. If i was to buy new id look closely at a Honda Rancher

    Hondas last the longest, which is reflected in the asking prices for currently available used quads.

    I Paid 8k for a 2022 Foreman 520 2 months ago, dont be afraid to drive a bit if you can buy new. Used prices are just stupid now…

    I know they are not easy to find. The guy that bought mine drove all the way from Grand Rapids. I was impressed and paid for his gas money.

    I would have to tip my hand to Hondas, I’ve got a 2001 Rubicon that was beaten and abused prior and I’ve not exactly babied it either, 21 years old and still runs like a champ, looks a bit beat up but I’m not using it to win beauty contests.

    While I agree Hondas are typically excellent machines, both of my Kawasakis (prairie 650, Brute Force 750i) have been excellent. My buddy’s prairie 400 was also a beast, he had an issue with a drain plug that drained his crank case and it drove the next mile no problem, got filled up with oil and a new plug, and never had any problems.

    On a big group ride full of Polaris, Kawasaki, Yamaha and Honda, only the Honda Rincon failed. I know of one other Honda Rincon owned by a different buddy that has been nothing but problems. So in terms of bigger 4 wheelers, I would never go Honda but that is based only my friends’ experiences with their big bore machines. I owned two Honda ATC 3 wheelers for a few years that were indestructible, and I wish I still had them.

    If you find a used Yamaha/Honda in the 4-5k range that isn’t 25 years old or completely beat on, shoot me a PM with the address and attached number. I’ll go check it out for you to be sure it’s all on the up and up waytogo

    Yes it is. That’s the 4×4 shifter on the side. Under the handle bars. But for 2k more you can own a 22 with warranty

    6k price, you could buy a brand new rancher 420 for 7200. Or foreman for 8. I would highly think about that before going 10 years used. I would vote on Honda or Yamaha. If Yamaha the 16 17 and 18 have notoriously bad designed motors. The 708 is the motor to walk away from. But the smaller motors are still great.

    The king quads are solid machines as well. Same with brute force.
    Again my vote would be Honda. Have owned many and never had a single issue. My 01 rancher went to hell and back and still runs like its new. My 21 died,but that was from a wreck. I’m waiting for my 22 grizzly se to show up currently.
    I am also looking for a 99 to 02 400ex.

    Honda, Honda, Honda! Stay away from the Rincon though. That is the one model that has issues.

    Thanks for the Rincon info. I have seen a few of those and wondered how they are. I do know of the Hobda reliability, just not sure about plowing with the 420.

    The 420 plows great. Depending on what you are plowing. The 420 and 520 do not have very much difference in power. I had the 20 rancher sold for 21 foreman and now going to the 22 grizzly se. The Foreman and rancher both plowed and pulled the skid house very well. Just don’t buy a oversized plow, I pushed with a 52 inch koplin. I could do 1 pass across my driveway to the other side of the yard with ease
