    I have a midsize 500, a full size 570, a Mule 610, and the old full size 500 (now dh357's). We got the Mule first, love it, not getting rid of it, the wife loves it for taking out the trash. Steel bed, manual shifters for 4wd and diff lock, great for utility work, however it is carbureted, not fuel injected, and it is limited to 25 mph, and has no independent rear suspension, but its great for what we use it for. I bought the full size 500 next and it started us on our Ranger journey, it doesn't see a lot of use now and I gave it to my son-in-law. I love my mid size 500 for trail riding, and running around the farm, has a lot more pep, smoother suspension and will go anywhere, its been to several states and over several mountains. I bought the full size 570 for the kids and grandkids and it now has a rear cage and seats in the bed. It definitely has more power, little less maneuverable but its a great machine and many of the dealers run some great deals on them later in the summer (year end closeouts). That is when we bought it.

    There are pros and cons for all of them. Any of them would make a great yard machine, I would say look at your local dealers and see which fits your needs the best. Dealer service, aftermarket parts availability and ease of maintenance are also big factors.
    2012 Red Ranger 500 EFI, 2017 Full size 570, and we still have the 2005 mule 610, 5 antique tractors, 3 dogs, 2 kids, two granddaughters and two grandsons, and glad to be retired.

    [QUOTE=Rangerwhit;1231665]Tsc or Cabellas? Pro shop? The ones I've seen where Coleman brand at tsc. I meant to say mechanicals were underwhelming..not mechanics by the way.

    The ones I've seen ALL had busted parts somewhere....such as cargo bed, dash components or cargo bed latch system. Seemed too big to have a one banger motor too.....tie rods and suspension parts seemed lightweight to me too.

    Lord only knows where you get parts and I know tsc doesnt carry replacement parts for them. Turn around twice and tsc will move on to another brand.

    We do have a go kart buggy I got from tsc over 10 years ago...can't find steering parts for it and tsc shrugs their shoulders saying hmmm...didnt know we ever sold those.

    IMHO, finding replacement parts for any of the Chinese machines will be the biggest problem. There may be someone out there that has them but I doubt they have a large inventory and you may wait months for a part to come from China.

    Maybe someone with actual experience will tell me I'm wrong.

    I went to Cabela's site, and the Intimidator UTV's are very impressive.
