Buying a quad / 4-wheeler
I am going shopping. Does anyone have any tips or experiences to share?
Our quad will be used exclusively in the bush. No road travel. Even the bush trails are rough. The terrain is bare rock, swamp and beaver ponds, mud, and topsoil. A fair amount of bush debris on the ground - fallen trees, broken branches, a few rocks. Primary purpose will be to haul a trailer to load our firewood into. Secondary purpose will be clearing out riding trails at the same time. MDH will build the trailer. We have the axle in the yard already.
I haven't looked at any machines at all yet. What I know so far is that I need to specify that I want a utility quad, 4x4, and MDH says 500cc is probably about right.
Whether new or used will depend on pricing. But if it will be used, it will not be very used.
