Depending on how you plan to use your side x side ATV or UTV will affect which model you will want to choose. If you plan on using it for hunting or for running trails, you will need to make sure that the ATV has enough ground clearance to avoid hitting large stumps and rocks. Typically, the majority of Side By Side ATV vehicles are fairly low the ground. However, you can add bigger tires or add a lift kit to gain the extra needed inches to meet your clearance requirements.
It’s greatly recommend that anyone looking to purchase a Side by Side should try to get a little riding experience first before making the decision to buy one. This will help you get an idea of how each model performs and what exactly you are looking for and like best about each model.
My situation is highly unique to any person buying a side by side ATV in the entire ATV industry. I have been diagnosed with a neurological disease similiar to MS which makes walking on rough ground nearly impossible since I have no balance ability and not much leg muscular strength. Since I am an nationally known birddog AKC field trial judge and a person running field trial Brittanys for over 30 years, I have gained national prominance when I got legal permission to run my dog off an ATV in any AKC pointing breed trial in the United States. I have a specially issued disability permit (which I helped write) issued by the State of Michigan and approved by the Attorney General under the Americans with Disabilities Act which allows me to run and train dogs where ATVs are normally not allowed. Before I hired an ADA attorney and contacted the State of Michigan ADA officials, the AKC just told you couldn't run dogs anymore and booted you to the curb. I am the first person in the United States to actually place a Brittany in an AKC field trial while handling from an electric golf cart in 2011. I have found the electric golf cart and the electric ATVs do NOT have the range demanded by me to run and watch field trial dogs for the entire day.
