Utility Vehicle Poll

Thinking of starting some polls that help us get info for hosting future contests and how to theme them. The first one I have is regarding what your utility vehicle of choice is on the farm.

If you have a moment cast your vote and let us know.

Just an FYI as well for those who do register a vote I will have a draw at the end of September as a thanks for taking the time to help with this. I will randomly draw 5 usernames from the list of those who voted and reward you with a free premium membership to the site. If you already have one and you win you can offer to transfer it to another member you think should have one.

We use a Kawasaki Teryx and an old JD Gator. Looking at adding a new JD XUV (because it seems tough) or one of the models from BRP because they have a slow key (employees) and fast key (me)!

I use a honda TRX 350 quad and a wagon. Very seldom do I use the pickup out in the pasture for anything other than hauling supplies to the gate. I am kind of thinking along the lines of BRP for the next one, for the same reason as cornfarmer. 2 keys. Not sure weather or not I would go for a side by side or not. They look a little cumbersome to get in and out of.

I have thought about something like a Kubota or one of the other similar machines. Everyone I have demoed just doesn't really impress me much. Maybe I'm just a quad guy, they are easier to load into the truck and take off for some recreation every so often.

We have 7, yes seven Polaris sportsman atv's. We mainly use them to check and gather cattle, but they are handy for other chores as well.

I may be young, but I've been told I am wise beyond my years.

F-150 , Worst case if you get rained out at least you have a dry ride home!

Common sense seems to be a lot less common then I believe the name implies...

Not around the farm but the dealership, use a NH Rustler 120 diesel to run around the yard. Peppy, comfortable, and fun.....
