    Quad advice

    Hi guys after a bit of advice I'm thinking about getting a quad it will just be used to potter around the shoot and farm and will be used for lamping a few times a week, what sort of price will I be looking at ??

    How long is a piece of string if you want to take a risk you will find them at farm/machinery sales for very little or a decant one from a dealer 2k+ with warranty etc.I got one from a firm at Malton North Yorks its never missed a beat in about 5years worst thing that you can do to agri quad is try and go too fast and run it flat out.

    It is no coincidence that most farmers use Hondas as they are very reliable but just remember when a farmer gets rid of anything it is usually causing trouble. For a reasonable second hand 4x4 quad around 2k.

    If you can afford it get a Honda. Nuff said.

    Honda or Yamaha 350cc 4x4
    My Yamaha is now 18 years old and still tows red and Sika stags out of the forest.
    I gave 750 for it as a non runner 10 years ago spent 500 to sort it out and I have spent about 100 on it since

    If you had no concern for cash, there is only one: Can-Am (Bombardier), is by FAR the best make and certainly the best performance and reliability by a long way.

    Honda can be easily equalled in performance by many other makes, including Yamaha and Suzuki. Longterm reliability on the other hand, Honda is hard to beat. We have 6 of them on the farm, and we put them to seriously hard work, all day, everyday. We kick the absolute **** out of them, and they never complain. As the Honda's get around 3 years old, we trade them in for new in a constant cycle.

    You'll be talking around 2500 for a 4 year old Honda Foreman. (avoid ex-farm machines!)

    I use an Arctic Cat on my farm and don't think it can be easily bettered.
    It's a diesel version so runs all day on one tank of red unlike some of the thirstier quads out there.
    Diesels can be a little bit noisier on full throttle but with the extra torque you can creep around on just over tickover very quietly.

    Agree with 308 boy buy a honda nothing else is as good ive got 08 350 and its light enough to handle got enough power and never misses a beat starts first push every time, had cheaper ones and an import and its not worth it in the long run.
