The 'ol Ranger has a bigger bed that can haul more "equipment". While the Rhino has push button AWD, Faster, better suspension, and more HP. The rhino has more options but its more of a toy than a work horse. Both are belt drivin.

It comes down to the kind of equipment your hualing. Mud will be dominated be the Rhino. If you wanna have some fun with The machine too go with the Rhino totally. You won't regret it. The pricing is around the same too depending on the options you get on them.

Yep.....his is upgraded to ITP wheels and tires too, not sure what size they are......he has a $100k rock crawler jeep buggy (tube chassis) and when that's not running he takes the Rhino instead.

Plus uses the Rhino at his deer leases and tows small utility trailers with it and well pretty much anything.

Rhino
Cheaper,small and narrow easy to move thru the trail, where I have ridden
I have a friend that put 29" tires on his with out a lift kit,
Not that nothings wrong with the Polaris , it just seems a little to wide, for the tight woods type riding

won't be doing any tight woods type riding. So far price seems about the same. I do like the push button AWD on the ranger. Polaris claims to have more ground clearance as well.
