How Much UTV do you need?

How Much UTV do you need?

We tried to decide for a long time on our small farm what would we get? We had a four wheeler atv. The carb would gum up every time we turned around and that was so annoying. One day a guy said I’ll trade you my golf cart with new batteries and charger for your 4 wheeler. We spent $2,000 buying the atv. When we couldn’t fix the carb it was always a shop bill. I thought rather than a UTV we could have a golf cart. Sure why not. It has been love ever since. We used this electric golf cart more in 3 months than we did that four wheeler in 3 years.

We have flat mistreated it. It really needs some TLC now. The right rear passenger spring has actually started to reverse arc from the weight and abuse we put this thing through. Almost all the bushings are gone. Only thing we ever did to it was break off the roof, replace an occasional corroded wire, and charge it. We did add a $18 digital volt meter and $12 LED lights that I have had on for hours. They didn’t even make the digital meter move. We will be buying more of these LEDs soon. I will put links at the bottom.
I will say it cost us about $2,000. Still way cheaper than one of those $15,000 dollar new UTVs that I really want. Or even a good used one at $6,000+. We have had this thing in ditches, mud, water over the floor board, etc. Never stops. When it is time to replace it and that time is coming sooner than later I really think we will get another, but maybe with a lift kit.

Second best.

When it comes to getting around the farm the best thing that comes in first place is our 4wd 4025 Mahindra tractor, but the second best is our electric golf cart. This thing is better than any side by side, atv, etc. Its quiet and you can put a heck of a load on it. Ours has seen a bit of abuse and we are doing some work to it, but we can only do a little to it at a time as we cant go without it.

 

Here you can see we got approximately 35 bricks plus over 250 pounds in human weight and it never slowed down.
