    I picked it up yesterday, and i love it. I got a killer deal on it so that's always a plus. We used it at work today to hold all the plants we cut back. It was nice to be able to load it all up at once, then dump it with ease. I need to extend the sides of the bed higher so I can fit more in, maybe I'll get to it this weekend. Anyways, here's some pictures

    Utility Vehicle $4000

    They have these at Samsclub for $4000 for a 2wd version. Is yours 4wd? if it is only 2wd I think you overpaid.

    Wells-I love that vehicle. It looks out of my price range.

    lister-yes mine is only two wheel drive. but there's more to factor in than price and 2wd/4wd.

    engine builder, engine size, wieght of the vehicle, towing/carrying capacity so on and so forth. I've owned yerf dog products before and they use very low grade steel on thier frames. If you want to trust sams club to sell you a relieable work machine that will last longer than it's 12 month warentee, go right ahead. I'm very happy with my perchase though. Have a good one-

    So who's the maker of the one you bought? Do you have any specs? I was seriously considering the one at Sams I think I could get a 3yr extended warranty for about $150...

    I believe you have a much more capable machine, 8+ hp and bed lift and a better resale when it's time to upgrade. 6g's seems like a lot of dough, but you get what you pay for.

    thats exactly it. I was going to buy yhr john deere hpx but the price was about 9 grand (for the 4x4) and i knew i couldn't afford it, so i went for the cub cadet. Obviously cub cadet isn't as good as john deere and i had to settle on a few things, but when it's all said and done, i'm spending $150 a month and john deere owners are spending about 230+ a month
