Been researching the opinions of diesel ATV's on this forum and others, and I keep running into an apparent bias that doesn't make sense to me.
When it comes to vehicles like the Mudd-Ox, the diesel option is uniformly applauded and endorsed for it's power, durability, etc. But, when it comes to Polaris Rangers or Arctic Cat ATV's, the diesel option is panned because they will be hard to start in cold weather, or restart after water crossings, etc.
Yet, it seems to me that a Mudd-Ox is much more likely to be operated around water or during colder weather on tracks, than wheeled ATV's, that are usually stored during the winter. So, why is it that one diesel machine is considered something to "avoid", while another diesel machine is called "awesome", for exactly the same reasons/conditions
