Replacing my Rhino With This.

Replacing my Rhino With This.

PostBy: ktm rider On: Fri Oct 05, 2007 4:46 pm

Well, my Yamaha Rhino has served me well on the farm but I think this little joker would do an even better job. It is only as wide as the Rhino but obviously it has a cab and heat. You can get these with a hydrualic dump bed also for hauling in the firewood. The hauling capacity is more than double the Rhino or Ranger.
These mini trucks are around $4,500 stock but one decked out like this one is about the same price as a bone stock Rhino or Ranger. I want one BAD !!!
Might work well for your place also Greg...

Actually I wasn't familar with a "Rhino" but a quick search showed that Ambulance chasers love them.

Yep they sure do, along with my dirt bike and snowmobile. If the ambulance chasers aren't hanging around when your riding, well, then it must not be all that fun to ride in the first place. :P

I ride my 4 and 5 yr. olds in it daily around the property and trails and never, ever had an issue. Rhinos are great machines and in my opinion just as safe a a regular ATV.

BUT , I have rolled mine twice, without the kids in of course. I was riding to the machines maximum capabilities over some extremely large rocks. I wasn't dumb enough to stick my foot or arm out and try to stop the roll however. Wasn't hurt a bit and it only cost me one tail light lens.

My off road 4x4 with hydraulic dump bed. Serves as my coal bin in winter months. Specs at
http://www.feterl.com/Pug/htdocs/products/bad_B624_4x4_specs.htm
This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.

I don't think it's in production any more. Uses a modified Ford FWD four speed manual transaxle turned 90 degrees so the axle half shafts point front and rear. Each drives conventional differentials with the rear drive shaft having a U-joint at the pivot point of the front and rear half of the vehicle. Steers by pivoting, like a big Payloader. Payload capacity over a ton. It's a powerful 4x4 that can go places others can't, especially with a lot of cargo.

I went and looked at the Suzuki 'Carry'. pretty neat unit. The one I looked at was right hand drive, had about ~38k Km. if the Odometer was telling the truth.

It had a few 'bondo patches' but was overall in good shape. It ahd a 'lift kit, about 2-3" worth, with new agressive tires. The seller said it was not road licenseable, could be driven on the road with a triangle SMV sign, but not over 25 mph, or get a ticket..

Power was a slanted 3 cylinder, 4valve per cylinder engine everything was under the cab and seats, and the cab did not tilt, but the seller said it can be removed 'easily'.

He said he was going to have 15-20 of them over the next two months, prices starting at around $5K pluss accessories. This one was around $6K with the new tires and lift kit.

I think I'll save my $$, I have lots of vehicles to drive around the farm. and I rarely get off the farm's roads and trails.
