    I have a Ski Doo snow machine. They are first class.
    I noticed you have a 1635 Massey Ferguson.... I almost bought one of those but noticed they belong to the Agco / Iseki group. I didn't wait for the train to stop.... I jumped off ! Good luck.

    Honda atv's and utv's are built in Timmonsville, SC (about 40 mins from my house). I think Yamaha and Suzuki build their atv's in GA. Arctic Cat is also made in the USA if I remember correctly. Not sure where kawasaki builds theirs but Can-am is Canadian.

    Yeah, Can-Am-Bombardier-BRP is the only major brand I have not owned. I think they
    make the biggest ATV now, too, at 1000cc and 1000#. Wow. BRP has a partnership
    deal, I believe, with Kymco of Taiwan for one or 2 of their models. Similar to the
    Polaris-Aeon Motor deal perhaps.

    I don't know where Kawasaki does final assy, either, but I suspect in the US somewhere
    for the NA market. I have a KLF220 Bayou, and it is interesting: all mechanical brakes
    (no hydraulics). They used to partner with Suzuki on the sporty quads, but I think that
    may be over. Kawasaki may be the only major ATV maker with a rear differential...anyone
    have a Prairie 300 2WD with the differential option? I would like to hear about that one.

    I have a John deere tractor and equipment. A Gator, not so much.

    That's why there are so many different machines on the market, we can all buy what we like. I had the RTV and it didn't do what I wanted so I went with the Gator....glad that I got my choice.

    What ATV, side by side or UTV do you have.-img_0338.jpg
    Moved up from a Yamaha Kodiak to this Grizzly. I really like the bigger engine and the fuel injection. Use it to plow the drive and pull a little dump trailer for yard work. And it's fun just to bop around the property. I think a utv would be overkill for me, but an enclosed cab would be nice plowing snow.

    Good point, my Kawasaki has fuel injection, and I wouldn't go back to carburetor.

    Before I bought a tractor, I used the Kodiak to pull a BB around to maintain the gravel roads and carve new trails. Can't say that power nor carburetor was ever a problem. Still isn't. If anything, lack of weight was the shortcoming. Just like with a tractor.

    I have a 2012 RTV900 Camo w/roof & windshield. I just rolled up 100 hours. I have zero complaints, and love the machine. My prior machine was a Mule 2510, which was bullet proof reliable, but I must say, this RTV900 is superior in every way, with exception of acceleration. The fun factor was greater with the Mule, but this RTV is a workhorse/tank!

    ALL Can ams are built in house. Arctic cat has a deal with Kymco for the quads under the 450 cc range. The 443cc in the 500 is a Kymco engine put in the cat chassis by cat. That mill is a little rocket.
