    Default Advice needed

    Hey folks, I'm looking to get a used quad. I don't want to put much in it, maybe $3-4k. I want 4x4 and preferrably independent rear suspension. I'll use the quad for some trail riding, plowing my small drive, hauling meat, and getting my son out on the trail with me.

    I'm a pretty big guy. I had a Can Am 500 issued for the last couple of summers and know that I don't want a Can Am (junk!!). I always had Hondas on the farm and never had many problems.

    Any suggestions?

    Any wheelers to avoid?

    Thanks

    I would recommend something along the lines of the Kodiak. You should be able to get a Kodiak 450 w/ diff lock in the upper portion of your price range if you shop around. I got a 400 for 3500 and it only had 530 miles on it and brand new wheels and mud tires!

    Lujon, why are you still rocking the orange and blue? You're a Gators fan at heart, eh?

    Brian, you rock, even if you won't reset my rep to zero.

    Yes!!! I purchased a Polaris 500 X2 and an older Kawasaki 650. The Polaris is a nice looking family machine. The Kawasaki is a screamin' demon.
