    Default Who makes the quietest UTV, or side by side??

    Have been thinking of selling my Honda Foreman 450ES and replacing it with a UTV. Is it used mainly for hunting, so I want/need/demand one that is really quiet. Can anyone tell me who has the quietest one on the market? Is there a comparison chart somewhere that shows the decibel ratings for all the current makes?? If I get one, that won't be the main decision making criteria, but it would be pretty important to me. Thanks.
    Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!

    Polaris makes an electric one. Check out their website. Can't get quieter than that.

    I think Bad Boy also makes an electric UTV.

    When I was shopping for my UTV, I drove a Polaris Ranger EV. It is the quietest UTV that I have ever driven. I drove about every model that the dealership had and decided on the 800xp for my needs but the ability and quietness of the EV was impressive.

    We have been running motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs in the woods since the early 70's and the deer don't seem to be bothered by any of them. I have had them run alongside them before. I have to hunt out of a UTV now and use a Rhino, not very quiet, but it works OK for my needs.

    I've run my JD 5210 tractor running a brush hog at full throttle for PTO (2400) and come across deer, fox, and owls who don't seem the least bit concerned. I think they're programmed to recognize our silhouette as a threat, but on or in a machine they are much less frightened.
    But if you want quiet, go electric. They whine a little but are much quieter than any gas or diesel machine. Bad Boy and Polaris come to mind but there probably are others.

    If you don't have heavy hauling to do, get yourself a used electric golf cart.
