I think all of the top brand 4 wheelers out there these days are made pretty well… all have excellent power and reliability… the selling factor to me on a honda is the look and feel of the ride. I have the Honda Rancher 350. It does all that I want to do and more on my lease… plowing food plots, going through mud, and hauling dirt, corn, stands, and anything else you can think of. Personally, I didnt feel the need for anything bigger than a 350, but if I were in the habit of riding around more than 1 person I would have gotten the Foreman 500.
I also have the Honda Rancher 4×4, it does all I ask of it! Pushes snow, hauls wood, deer , huge tom turkeys ! I have had mine 5 years and all I have had to do to it other than the normal maint. is replace the battery, which I did about a month ago! Great quad!!!!!
They are all good machines.The only on I would stay away from is(Im going to hear alot of flack for this)Polaris.Sorry Polaris people.Start looking at DirtWheels or some atv mag.They do alot of shootouts and long turm tests.Also I bought my quad when the new model years were in and saved alot of money.
