I just got a rhino the other day and have been happy with it. But I wanted a useable bed for around my house. I got a good deal on it and bought it. I really wanted a Polaris because they are made here but money didn't work out. Do have a polaris 6x6 utv that me and my dad use for our business and it's a beast. But we use it to carry a 100 gallon tank of herbicide. So we need the tires.

Must be a hella good workhorse to haul that load. near the weight of the vehicle itself. I've been looking for one just for fun. Don't really have anything to haul with it besides maybe the ar15 and a cooler. Don't really want to beat the out of my daily driver to have offroad fun.

I don't know much about side by sides but I'll share a little story...
Not far from my deer lease, in east Texas, there is a medium sized power sports dealer that sells Polaris, Honda and Kawasaki ATV's and side by sides.
A friend of mine was interested in buying a SxS so I stopped in to talk to them and get some info. In the course of our conversation I asked the owner which he would recommend for SxS's Polaris or Kawi.
Here's what he told me, "Kawasakis are bullet proof, I see Polaris's in my service dept 5 to 1 over the Kawasaki's".
I asked him about 4 wheelers and he again recommended Kawis over Polaris. I asked him about Honda and he said, "You can't go wrong with Honda, they are probably the best but for the money I prefer the Kawasaki".

I got no dog in this hunt so don't flame me. I realize the owner may have just been pushing Kawis for his own purposes, like maybe he was overstocked but that's what he told me.

I considered the Honda Pioneer at one point but couldn't bring my self to paying that kinda of money, so I got a jeep instead and go on and off road lol. The RAZR looks cool but you know the Honda is going to be dependable and looks pretty good too.

Thanks for all the info! Nobody has any feedback on the wildcat. It's hard to find reviews on the interned that aren't biased towards one or the other

You should see jays RZR 1000! Beast

I have the 13 Ranger 800 HO , love mine only have broke 1 cv joint and it was my fault because I didn't lift

The reason the polaris is in his shop 5-1 is because they sell them 10-1 over the kawi! Lol

Really, polaris/can am/Arctic cat/kawi all have come along way!

They all break cv joints, they all get stuck, find the one you like and work the dealers to get the best deal you can.

Some dealers will work with you, others stick to msrp

Wild cats are a Beast, mean as looking but like the rzr/maverick they have little to no protection from the mud slinging over you

Go see Albert at mainland Kawasaki, they have built a few

I know a ton of people with RZR's. You cant say they suck or are always broken and be taken seriously. Do they break? Sure. You see what is done to them? They take a beating and keep going most of the time though. They are pretty impressive machines. We had a group of about 10 in Bandera a few months ago. All were tortured with rocks, sand, mud, and big hill climbs. I couldn't believe what they are capable of. Not one broke down either. We put about about 70 miles on them that weekend too. The Mules and Rhinos in the group could not match what the RZR's were capable of.

I would like to point out price difference and purpose difference. Comparing a rzr to a rhino is like a s1k to a dual sport.

I agree. I was making the point about abuse levels between the two and relations between their use and their breaking

The off road parks are starting to do races with them, but it's mostly sand/water/mud

B&c motocross was racing these also at one time last year
