Side by sides
« on: August 14, 2017, 06:07:26 PM »

My Polaris Ranger is getting pretty old.  I'm looking to get a new side by side.  Looking for opinions on Polaris, Honda, CanAm and John Deere.  Also recommendations of dealers to work with in the U P or Wisconsin.

Cozzy' s in Marinette has always been good to me.  They are a Polaris dealer.  For my Can Am I deal with Simonar's in Luxenberg WI .

Cant go wrong with a Honda. Not a side by side guy myself, I prefer ATVs, and I wouldn't trade my 2013 Honda Rubicon for anything. Simply built bulletproof. My dad had a 2007 Yamaha Rhino, junk. He has a 2014 Polaris Ranger now, also not a fan, but again I am ATV prone. However, if I was to buy one, I would be buying a Honda SXS. Both my grandfather's have Hondas, a 95 and a 2003, with 0 issues EVER. My dad's 95 fourtrax and 03 rubicon, 0 issues. And dealer wise, I have had outstanding service at North Motor sports in Menominee. Just my .02

The right machine for you depends on what you are going to do with it.  Do you want a work, work/play or all play machine?  Are you looking for a full or mid size machine?

In my line of work I have been on all of them.  I also work with a lot of dealers in the area.  Some are great, others not so much.

Well... don't call Honda North in Menominee.   Don't know what happened but Honda and Can Am pulled all their stock and doors are locked.

When I had my farm/orchard I used a Kawasaki Mule for a ton of things. The one I had was pretty bare bones model, but was perfect for all the years I used it, and it is still going. Pulled a mower, sprayed, hauled apples and other stuff, drug out deer, beer cruises, etc. etc. Had 2/4 wd plus lock, hi-low range, comfortable bench seat. No other brand to compare it to, but it was great.
