Anyone use a utv for landscaping? Im trying to justify buying one and seeing what uses there would be for one. Other than plowing snow which i dont see me doing because trailering it around would be rediculous. I want one to play on more than anything. I already have a quad but looking for something different. Thanks.

I've got a Polaris Ranger XP that I use to mulch instead of a wheelbarrow. It's also great for cleaning up trimmings from hedge jobs. It also pulls my Lesco 42" tow behind aerator. Not to mention that I got both mowers stuck & the Ranger pulled them out.

yes, we've got a 825i Gator that we use for a lot of plant/mulch installs on larger properties. Also use it for hauling off brush and stuff. It does get used for "play time" once in a while.

i have a mule 4010 4x4 with a winch. i use it mainly for the dump bed but also have an attatchment for a fertilizer hopper and can put my big sprayer in the back. the rear differential unlocks so you can turn sharp without tearing up the grass--also works great when taking clients hunting with you

The Intimidators utv's are amazing machines. 1,600 lbs payload and 2,100 lbs towing. A lot of ranchers hauling round bales in the bed while towing 3 behind.

I have a Polaris ranger we use it on estate properties for trimming on shopping centers for mulch and planting and for snow plowing we live close and I drive it"$300 street kit". The main reason I purchased is for hunting season. It's a family affair" wife,kid,in-laws, and vet. Dad. Best investment yet
