Whats considered affordable and does it have to be an ATV? If I had it to do over i'd would get a cheap atv to play around with and invest in an ARGO. But I have a polaris 800 in camo and love it but that get into a chv-ford-dodge conversation. :toofunny:

Do not buy an automatic! They will not gear down low enough in mud...i just sold mine for that reason.

What auto did you have, never had a problem with mine in the mud, ran circles around my buddy's hondas in the marsh last year. I don't like the brutes for the mud because of there locker, but there great machines.

I just got a Yamaha Grizzley and I love it. I only got a 350 because any bigger and it wouldnt fit in my truck with the tailgate up. Its 4x4 but goes through the mud like a champ in 2x4. Ive been through some real nasty mud with it and it wont stop. The only issue Ive had is ground clearance with logs in the woods.

You can't go wrong with a Honda. Mine's a 96 and has been put through the wringer, still runs like a top. :thumbsup: It just looks rough.

Got a '2005 Honda Rincon 650 automatic and I have not had a bit of problem going through mud, water, woods with downed logs,up steep hills, down steep hills or towing my 5x8 trailer through mud, water or snow loaded with decoys.

I agree with shortround, the Honda's are awesome and they last forever. I've got a 02 Foreman and I love it.
