That's not specific enough IMO. You need to specify what it is your wanting to do with your machine. Where do you live? What kind of riding do you do? Desert? Mud? Hunting? Trails? All of these are important factors to accurately describe some pros and cons. All around it is a very well built reliable machine that surprised me with its capabilities, even in stock form.

That being said.......No machine out there is specifically built for YOU or exactly what you wanna do. (unless you just wanna ride around the yard or something)
Post a little bit more about what you wanna do and I think you will find a lot of responses. The people on this forum are awesome. They are very helpful and welcoming from the get go.

That's my 2 pennies.

I live in arkansas and primarily all I do with my four wheeler is hunt , but I am looking to start riding public atv trails and parks . So I am looking for a machine that will handle anything that comes up be it work or play. I have been researching all of the utvs and am trying to make sure that I buy the best all around machine.

I have heard from people that these rtv s are capable of going anywhere a normal four wheeler can go is that true?

I haven't had any problems following four wheeler except through really deep mud. I bought the Teryx because I'm kinda like you. I wanted a machine to do a lot of different things. I like to hunt and use my Teryx for hunting. I also like to ride trails and do a little mudding. The Ranger is by far better for working than the teryx. But imo it isnt as fun to ride. The Teryx has a 500lb bed capacity which is plenty for a few deer, especially Arkansas deer. The RZR is better for trails b/c of the short wheel base and more narrow stance. But the RZR has absolutely no bed room and is very cramped for me. (6'1 240Lbs) The rhino was way too sluggish and top heavy for my taste. I felt like I was going to turn it over every time i took a turn in it.

There is no such thing as machine that will be perfect for every situation, but I bought the Teryx b/c it seemed to do everything well. It is an absolute blast for trail riding. It will also go out and get through the woods the way you need it to in these arkansas pines.

Again these are just my opinions.

P.S. Where at in Arkansas do you live? I am in Texarkana.

IMO....If you plan to hunt/work/play, the Teryx is the way to go. If you mainly want to play...no scratch that... if you JUST want to play, RZR S all the way. (as much as it pains me to say that).

I hope you go and test drive the RZR, REX, CAN-AM, Ranger, I use my Teryx for hunting, tearing around the woods, ice fishing..I use to own a Mule, loved it but just too slow. No problem with speed and the Teryx, Good Luck

I have taken my Teryx with two people and an elk in the back that no 4 wheeler could. My friends are amazed at the stability and the ability to climb.
