THE 2022 CAN-AM DEFENDERS – RIDE and REVIEW

We’ve never been disappointed by a Can-Am.  Whether it’s a top-of-the line Defender, Outlander ATV, or a sporty Maverick Side x Side, they’re the definition of off-road excellence.  Recently we were able to test the new Can-Am Defenders and Mavericks at Georgia’s Iron Mountain Resort.   PLENTY OF DEFENDERS TO PICK FROM Can-Am’s Defender models broke new ground in a field that until then had been the domain of Deere’s Gator, Kubota, and the Polaris Ranger.  ...

TESTED – THE 2023 POLARIS RANGER XP KINETIC

Electric off-road vehicles have largely been confined to country clubs and retirement communities.  While some have outfitted golf carts with bigger tires and wheels, a two-wheel drive buggy designed to haul Callaway clubs isn’t much on the trail.  That trail just got a lot tougher, and there will be no more ez-go of it for the club car crowd.  The 2023 Ranger XP Kinetic is the first electrically powered, feature packed off-road Side x Side ...

CAN-AM DEFENDER TIP

We really like Can-Am’s Defender models.  They’re the total package, featuring plenty of power, nimble handling, and excellent styling.  That doesn’t mean they can’t be better though, and most Side x Side owners love to customize their machines.  One of our team members recently came up with a simple improvement for the Defender that’s definitely a welcome change, and it’s an easy fix for every model Defender.        GEER SHIFT LEVER UPGRADE Chris Geer ...

JOHN DEERE GATOR XUV 835R REVIEW

When most people think of John Deere it’s almost certain to be green and yellow equipment rolling across vast swathes of open farmland. That’s the short view. As one of the largest and most respected companies on the planet, the Deere product lines touch on nearly every type of outdoor activity, whether work or recreation. Their GATOR utility vehicles are ready for both. What began as the very work oriented, five wheeled AMT, (for All ... Read more

2020 KUBOTA RTV-XG850 SIDEKICK REVIEW

You can do no better than a Kubota RTV if you need a hard working UTV. Think of the Kubota RTV lineup as the tractors of the off-road world, which makes sense. Kubota is one of the worlds largest manufacturers of small to mid-sized tractors and they’ve earned a reputation for durability. We see the bright orange machines everywhere. When it came time to build a hard working UTV, Kubota engineers went with what they ... Read more

TOP TEN FEATURES of the 2020 CAN-AM DEFENDER UTVS

No manufacturer has managed to combine hard-working capabilities and off-road luxury better than Can-Am. Excellent power and handling, enormous towing and hauling capabilities, and creature comforts that rival a new pickup are all trademarks of the 2020 Can-Am Defender models. They’ve even got the new truck smell! So what is the best UTV and how does it match up against the hard-working models from Polaris, Honda, Yamaha, and Kawasaki? We’ve created a Top Ten list ...

2020 YANMAR BRAHMA UTV

You don’t see a lot of Yanmar UTVs on the trails. They often spend their lives toiling away on ranches, construction sites, and anywhere else there is a tough job to do. With names like The Longhorn, The Bull, The Black Angus, there is little doubt about their gritty toughness. Now the Brahma joins the Yanmar herd, and it’s one tough hombre. BRAHMA BLOODLINE Yanmar is one of the worlds largest suppliers of diesel engines, ... Read more

THE 2020 POLARIS RANGER 1000 – FIRST RIDE AND REVIEW

When Polaris introduced the first Ranger two decades ago it joined the ranks of the John Deere Gator and the Kawasaki Mule, both strictly utility vehicles dedicated to long days of toiling away on ranches and construction sites. Thoughts of recreation were little more than one would apply to a tractor. There have been several generations since, with advancements in performance, handling, and comfort that have made the Ranger one of the most successful vehicles ... Read more

ROXOR RIDE REVIEW

Long before the Kawasaki Mule, the John Deere Gator, or the Polaris Ranger there was a vehicle called the Willys-Overland General Purpose 4WD car.  That was the Army quartermasters official name, and like so many other military tools, the soldiers quickly tagged it with their own moniker.  You already know what that is, and the tough, gritty and versatile little vehicle quickly become a beloved tool for any and all tasks.  Found in every WWII ...
