Go drive one and you'll be sold. I think they look tough but until I rode in it I was hesitant. It's not as peppy and spry as the ranger but it's got good power and is smooth, oh so smooth.
See, now that's a fair review of your opinion on the matter. Bravo!
Guns, atv's, cars, etc. I hate it when folks say one is the titz because that's the one they own and all others suck.
I'll add my $.02: the ranger I use has some drawbacks. If water clears the floorboard, it gets in the belt housing and causes it to slip, and the CV boot clamps suck. If you drive on gravel much, you're gonna replace axles. I did not notice the superior ride of the Gator, but I did notice that it seemed to have about 1/3 less seating capacity than the ranger does. On the other hand, I suspect that the Gator requires less maintenance. Ultimately, which one is better probably comes down to your intended use and expectations for a particular model. As for the ATV vs UTV debate, anyone that tells you that a UTV will go anywhere a 4-wheeler will go either doesn't know how to drive a 4-wheeler or is a liar. Unfortunately, I can't carry 3 people, a dog, and 6 dozen dek's on a 4-wheeler.
Smell that? Smells like sumthin died in here.
