Without a doubt, ATVs have greatly expanded the acceptance of off-road recreation.  For many riders that were either uncomfortable with the sometimes schizophrenic nature of a dirt bike, or did not want to be confined inside the cab of a vehicle, ATVs were the perfect choice for outdoor fun and exploration.  Entire families could ride into areas too remote to be seen on foot and experience nature first hand, and they could do it safely at their own pace.

Rural Indiana is known for being one of the most productive agricultural regions on the planet.  A back roads drive on a sunny, fall day will display endless fields in every direction, with soybeans drying in the sun, and brown corn leaves rustling to the slightest breeze, waiting to be harvested.  Scattered along the roads and in between the practically endless corn and bean prairie, giant, silver, grain bins dot the sky and mark the small towns that are, for all intents and purposes, a Midwestern oasis.

Let's face it, finding extra money in the budget for our toys got a lot harder in the past year.

Here is our story...

As UTV manufacturers continue the process of refining and evolving their product lines, the mid-size segment of this market especially keeps getting better and better. Among the major players in the 4x4 mid-size segments are the Mule 610, the Ranger 400, the Club Car XRT950 and the new Husqvarna 4414. Husky's entry is the poster child for the philosophy of "less is more", but it offers all the goodies that mainstream UTV owners desire, such as four-wheel independent suspension, “shift-on-the-fly” four-wheel drive, sealed CVT, tilt-bed and a rugged brush guard.

For 2010, Polaris has refined and polished almost every aspect of its 6x6. Polaris says that it appeals to farmers, outdoorsmen, land owners, contractors and municipalities that need massive storage capacity with unmatched terrain capabilities.  We couldn’t agree more. Except to add that as UTV standards go, the six-wheeled beast is thunderously quick, both from a standstill and at speed. The 6x6 retains all of the key components that are so convincing to these buyers, but with significant improvements. “Just doing what the customer asks,” Polaris says.
