Started to clean my ride up last week to get ready for the upcoming busy season.  It will be a few days before I can pull soil samples up here.  but its coming quick.  This will be my ride and office  till Thanksgiving or so.  We will use it to map and grid farm fields and pull soil samples this spring and fall.  This summer it will be used to crop scout too.  The 4 wheeler will cover around 10,000 acres of corn and bean fields  and get about 3000 miles of riding in,  no trails just corn stalks and bean stubble.  It is equipped with GPSand mapping software, so we can make prescription maps for farmers .  Here are some pics.

Rick I work for a  family owned Agronomy, and grain  business.  I cover ground in a 50 mile radius of our office.    I really enjoy working alone.  

 

        I get to see a lot of vacant buildings with rusty tractors in them .   My job helps my hobby

That's where I get in trouble.  I deliver rental equipment as needed, and always end up getting prices on all the old rusty junk laying around.  A couple times the trailer got full before I was done.  :thumbs:

think I have brought home at least 5 or per year for the last while any way. I have learned to keep the best and sell the rest.

My office is sweet till the last week of November/first week of December.  It gets mighty chilly out there with the snow flying around and the ground freezing.  with no place to get warm except for my pickup 2.5 miles sway or so.  99% of the time my real job is awesome.  My office has a great view.  When I do get busy I will post pictures every now and then of where I get.

Can you put a cab on it when the weather is bad? There are 12v heating pads that work real well when it is cold. The guys flying bombers in WWII had to use electric suits to keep from freezing. Abit of extra heat can help you too. Good Luck, Rick

when it does get cold, I tend to work a little harder and faster. I usually leave the truck running, when its really cold. But Carhart is a good friend of mine too.

You can get heated gear to cover from your feet to neck and just plug it into the ATV.  I have a full set I use riding the bike in the winter.

How does the Polaris perform using it every day?

 

I figured you'd go with a Honda.
