I am new to ATVs, but needed a work horse vehicle as I have over 60 acres, some wooded and some pasture. Most is hills and getting around became impossible.
I was looking at the Yamaha Grizzly 300 but was directed to the Sportsman 400 by the folks at the dealership in Birmingham, Al. I am extremely pleased.
This ATV is a true work horse and with the 1225 towing ability, moving tree stumps and logs is no chore. The AWD 4X4 and low gear mean I can go anywhere and I mean anywhere. I have gone where you can't walk.
The price was what I wanted and with winch it was just $5,947.22 for everything, tax, fees, shipping and such. I am too cheap to buy a rack for 89 bucks so I got a 90 degree conduit and made my own which is larger, stronger and cheaper.
Next I will make a front rack. At almost 700 pounds, I don't believe one would like this ATV for a buzz-around toy, but for a vehicle that will stay with you whatever your plans, I think this is the one. I could have gone to the 500, but wouldn't have gained much, I don't think.
