Otherwise explain that range in mud and swamps do not work: hunters and fishermen with money in their pockets are very Grizzly willingly prefers.

There are two reasons for this popularity. First, the lightest body among all competitors by rating, not lost in the component strength.

Rating: 4.6

Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI 2014

Utility ATV Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI can not be called the benchmark in terms of comfort and technical achievements – in its the design there is a number of controversial points that need elaboration. For example, changing seat configuration to enhance ergonomics, or increase the volume of the fuel tank for the possibility solving more complex problems.

In fact, this model is almost the best in in a way: at least users truly believe in it. The reason for this unquestioning complementarity was the ideal balance of price and quality, which is a competent combination engine and chassis elements. 44 horsepower allow to carry out transportation work without problems off-road in case of going hunting or fishing.

Stels ATV700D

Rating: 4.5

Stels ATV700D

ATV Taiwanese assembly with Russian roots, which appeared in sale back in 2010. Acquired by domestic by users mainly for backyard work on suburban areas where light-duty and draft operation is required technicians. However, it is often found in the circles of fishers and hunters, since the power and torque of the engine is enough to travel practically any off-road.

The most powerful features of the Stels ATV700D are the suspension and dual starter system (electric + manual start). First withstands shock and vibration loads, providing high comfort of passage of sites, and the second feature appears as a kind of structural redundancy for the general increase reliability in operation.

SYM QuadRaider 600 LE

Rating: 4.9

SYM QuadRaider 600 LE

Taiwanese tourist ATV that allowed get hold of two seats and total load capacity on board 250 kilograms. When looking at SYM equipment QuadRaider 600 LE has a strong feeling that the model about 5-7 years late – some decisions on current time patterns look frankly losing and outdated. For example, the presence of a carburetor, not an injector fuel supply system, which would save on average 20% more fuel.

It is noteworthy that at 565 cubic centimeters of volume, the engine SYM QuadRaider 600 LE delivers 40 horsepower, however maximum speed does not rise above 80 kilometers per hour. Artificial limitations of dynamics – not what I would like to see from the ATV, but in view of its transport incline may even be a plus. As a result, a lot can be presented to the model minor claims, but it will not work worse from this. On the contrary reviews show that consumers are satisfied with the bulk the operation of this four-wheeled vehicle, as well as the level requested for it cost.

Advantages

  • high level of reliability;
  • pronounced transport qualities (load capacity is 250 kilograms;
  • quite a nice body design – no frills, but in style tourist ATVs;
  • resource engine;

disadvantages

  • some components and assemblies in the model are lost relevance.

KAYO BIG BULL

Rating: 4.8

KAYO BIG BULL

Small and very attractive brand ATV KAYO, who took the second line of the rating due to full commitment to a utilitarian style of exploitation. View it as a serious tractor or conveyor does not make sense: 180 kilograms own weight and 12 horsepower – not what you want see from a model for gardening. Therefore BIG BULL mainly used for local movement and movement minor cargo (up to 100 kilograms).

The fuel supply is carried out by means of a carburetor, which in no way can not be called a plus model. Similarly, you can respond to suspension stiffness, but here everything is more or less clear: shock absorber front unregulated, having a length of 280 millimeters and in greatly reducing damping potential through connected action with back adjustable monoshock-absorbers. Engine cooling is air-oil, but the brake discs (albeit small) pleasantly surprised: they implemented hydraulic a system that helps the user brake more efficiently. Of the remaining little things can also be distinguished unexpectedly large 10 liter tank and 10 inch wheels. Worth KAYO BIG BULL a bit and … who knows, maybe it will be a great addition to your suburban area?

Advantages

  • low purchase price;
  • the ability to transport up to 100 kilograms of weight;
  • the presence of hydraulic disc brakes;
  • nice appearance

disadvantages

  • low-power and compact ATV, suitable only for moving around a location;
  • a number of obviously less relevant technologies integrated into construction.

CECTEK Kingcobra 550 EFI T6

Akin to the representatives of the Chinese automobile industry, CECTEK continues the good tradition of copying – this time external the outlines of the Kingcobra 550 EFI T6 are borrowed from the Yamaha YFZ, however The filling has been modified for higher competitiveness. So, already the initial configuration offers users a lot of useful options: built-in winch, 26-inch tires and alloy wheels. IN as a single cylinder engine is used here 44 horsepower four-stroke with a capacity of 523 cubic meters centimeter.

The main design flaw of the CECTEK Kingcobra 550 EFI T6 was lightweight suspension that killed all the original positive impression of the model as a whole. It goes into malfunction extremely fast: at the beginning of operation it becomes clear that the ATV was not designed for Russian road conditions. Everything is “treated” by selecting analogues of parts and user bringing systems to at least some acceptable state. Saves one thing: the cost is not as high as in the case of the more eminent competitors, which allows you to maintain a competitive spirit.

Advantages

  • pleasant (albeit borrowed) appearance;
  • good ratio of the motor to its own weight (44 horsepower to 324 kilograms);
  • 105 kilometers per hour maximum speed;
  • reasonable level of value.

disadvantages

  • Suspension not adapted to Russian conditions.
