  • Great quad.
    By Jacob (I am an Owner) on Nov 01, 2013

    This quad has a great ride, and it has the guts to back things up. A 420 single didn't seem like much to me at first, but this quad is an absolute animal when it comes down to power. It could use some more gearing out of the back, but otherwise for utility it is more than enough.

    I am ...

    The 420 Rancher ES Does have quite a nice speed, topping out at just over 56 miles an hour. It's not like you're going to be hauling any loads doing even 30 at the most on a farm. But for an aspect of enjoyment, it's nothing but perfect.

    It is a bit on the pricey side, around $5300 MSRP. It isn't all that bad, considering that the quad has paid for itself with how much we have used it to haul things around and just to ride around.

    Compared to the smaller displacement singles, like a 250, this quad will leave it in the dust.

    5/5 overall, great ride, comfort, and very reliable!
