Suggestions for a new UTV-side by side

Looking to get a new UTV. Can't decide between the Kawasaki Teryx and Polaris Ranger. Anyone out there have any suggestions/input?

The railroad I work for has a fleet of Kawasaki mules; They seem to hold up well in spite of being abused/ overworked 24/7.

Railroad service is quite likely the toughest environment that any piece of equipment will face; almost constant use as well as neglect &/or abuse by careless & ignorant staff are the norm. This opinion is based on well over 10yrs of observation... If I was in the market for one (i'm not) I know where to start looking.

Tim should know alot about them as he has guys that work in the field with them. I work for Tim for a little while and used the Mule. I am sure the mule has been to and back but I would not want one for myself, I did have fun in the Polaris ranger 6x6. The ride is awsome. The mule not so much.
Ridding in the mule reminded me of this.

The drum brakes did not work when they got dirty and I rammed in to the back of things from time to time. That was fun.
