What difference does it make, you're getting out of the hobby right?   Well, since you all ready have tractors, I think the one with the dump would be my pick.

I used to think UTVs were great, then my neighbor had a BBQ and let his sister drive his brand new polaris. She rolled it at slow speed and the junk that it was ended up totaled, bent frame plastic broke everywhere. Never thought I would be so glad to not own something. I thought these things would be built better but just goes to show nothing is built like the old days. I have seen VW dune buggies roll twenty times and drive off with minimal damage and still run the rest of the day.

I've never been a fan of a UTV. Prices are outrages for what you get. People drive them like a quad not realizing once you get 2 to 4 riders your top heavy. Why not use a truck. My pick GL would be the GT.

Well.. The GT can cut the lawn. The one in the middle can dump a load of mulch. The last one can haul your friends around.

 

so? what do you need most to improve upon? Mowing? Hauling mulch? or hauling three friends (excuse me... 5? friends)?  :D

I would take the GT btw... It looks like it has the ability for a 3 point, and maybe even 4wd?

A Mahindra Max 24 is a very heavy SCUT. PTO and 3 point (Category one) are standard. It has a single rocker pedal hydro.

The tractor.

If you need to haul something put a trailer on the back.

These were at a local show.  That big people rig is one of biggest I've ever seen.  Even the smaller one seemed pretty big.  I would want a show butt buggy, think these are WAY too big for that really.  That is 24 model and 4 x 4, cat 1 hitch. Rocker drive pedals. I couldn't get hood to open, but is Mitsubishi decal for engine in it. There was way bigger one there also with backhoe and loader, no picture.  60" deck on this one, so might be one of smaller offers??  More home user type. No prices or sales guys around, just dealer address.  I like the tractor, hear good things about them, even tho foreign made. What isn't now days?

That tractor looks nice but i prefer these options

max.jpg

could pick up a rear tiller, back blade, etc and have more ground clearance than a with a belly mower mounted.

With just a belly mower it seems like a high priced grass cutter just my .01
