We just bought our first ATV, a used 2005 Polaris four wheel with the bike steering, 330cc engine, got 4 new tires put on it and are using it at our place in Oklahoma. It is cool.

Main purpose of it is to carry 50 lb sacks of deer corn up the 1/2 mile long trail which rises 150 feet vertically, and has been a bear to carry those bags up that hill by hand. this will make it easier. Goes right up the hill no problem. would loved to have had a new "side by side" but those are out of my budget.

Go to Tractor Supply and buy a Fiber dump trailer. Easy to use and much safer then putting the weight on your atv, I think when i Bought mine i paid 300 dollars

Get a Dump cart made of a fiber material. NOT METAL> I first bought a metal one and it came apart while doing trail work for one of my horse clubs. They allowed me to exchange it of the fiber one and i was HAPPY AS COULD BE,. I had the fiber one for maybe 6 to 8 years and just sold it last month. This is the ONE i bought the second time and EXTRemeLY HAPPY WITH IT. The metal one came apart hauling 5 pails if Crushed stone about 1/2 mile into the trail

It was a good bike when it ran, I think the float was sticking on the carb. It would drip gas out of the bottom all the time and it would run for a while then flood out.

Gare those wagons are really nice to have.

They make a gas and diesel SxS.
I own 2 of the diesel and they are bullet proof machines. My main one is pushing 7k hrs and still running strong.

i had originally bought a steel one and in one day hauled 5 5gal buckes of crushed stone to a wet water spo0t on a horse trail. In about 7 trips the wagong was falling aport . I took it back to the store i bought it from not expecting a refund. I just told the manager what I had done AND there weight recomendations were off a bit. She then said if i wanted to give her the difference between the cost of the fiber one she would gladly exchange it for the other one., Anyone wanna guess how long it took me to pay the difference ? I had the fiber one I bet for 10 or more years and I just sold it lAST MONTH and it STILL LOOKED TERRIFIC!!
