    That would be Computer Science major but we had to pass an English class as well.

    Default Re: John deere gator or kubota Rtv

    My grandfather has an RTV900, and I have an 825i Gator. I'm 40 years younger, and I think that about sums up the differences in choice. He wants something that works hard, and that's it. I want something that works hard AND plays hard.

    I'll leave out the fact that his RTV is in the shop for about the 5th time in the past couple of years... but he has really worked that thing, too.

    ANYWAY... I LOVE my Gator 825i. IMO, it is hands-down the very best multi-use UTV on the market. It has more power than you'll ever need, it rides very smooth, it comfortably seats three, gets around my 100 acres in no time (thanks to a 50+mph top speed) and climbs over and through anything. And did I mention it can haul and pull a whole lotta weight?

    I don't think anyone on this forum could dispute the brute work qualities of the RTV. But if you're looking for something that is truly a "utility" vehicle, get the 825i. And spend the extra money and find one with the Big Horn package. I got mine used on Craigslist for a heckuva deal!

    Here's a load of wood I hauled yesterday. Drove it straight up a pretty steep incline with power to spare in spades.





    Let us know what you choose!
