    Lawn ranger needed

    I am needing your advise on which 2019 Ranger would be best suited for lawn work. A Ranger that has good turning radius, one that is the quietest, & 4WD, basically a golf cart with 4WD.
    Thanks in advance.

    I think that a gas engine would be more cost effective plus reliable. The 570 is my guess that would be the best choice, but the engine may be to noisy!

    I would go with gas engine....regardless of model you select it will be quite than any lawnmower..weedeater..edger or chainsaw. Way quite than a gas air blower.

    I would say the 570 or Kawasaki Mule. The Mule is well built and has basic manual controls for 4wd and rear wheel locker.

    Either will fit the bill...I would go take them for a spin and compare how they fit ya.

    I would see if you could rent one for a weekend and use the hell out of it...by the end you will know if it's for you or not.

    On the hunting shows I see BadBoy buggies and a ton of other golf cart type 4x4 rigs. I would think with Textron and Bass Pro joining forces price and model choice would be another company to look at.

    I work on those that you mentioned and in my experience parts and informational resources are the biggest problems. There are almost limitless options on where to get parts (OEM and aftermarket) for the majors brands, e.g. Polaris, Kawasaki, Yamaha, etc. Not so much for the Textron, Hisun, Massimo, Bass Pro, etc. By informational resources, I mean places like this site, downloadable service manuals and the like. I'm a warranty service center for Coleman that Tractor Supply sells (just a Hisun in disguise) and you should see the factory service manual. It will tell me not to drop or submerge a particular sensor in water but give me 0 specs. No voltage measurements, resistance specs, nothing.

    I'm a novice mechanic at best but do all the work I can on my own stuff....I have worked on several Mules for friends including axle swaps, front lifts and steering alignment etc...I have to say the Mule is worth a look...I like my bobcat and it has amenities the mule doesn't and rides like a Cadillac in comparison to the Mule...but the Mule is a heavy duty rig. Rear axles are u joint... the hubs are bigger and lugs are twice the size as polaris. The ones I've worked on have drum brakes as an example.... they're very utilitarian but stout.

    If you are trail riding or rough terrain then buy a kidney belt so you don't pee blood though.

    I've crawled around those coleman's a few times. They are actually well setup for the price but the suspension and mechanics are underwhelming to me.

    I think the EV would be heavier, but may not. My ‘17 Ranger Midsize 570 has turf mode/one wheel drive. It seems to work in the yard pretty well, but it still puts dents where the treads are when I have a load.
    2017 Ranger 570 Midsize, stock tires/wheels with a few accessories like bed rack, roof, windshields.
