    I dont care what it is a Can AM will destroy it.

    Unless you need diff lock. Both Can AM and Honda are 3 wheeled wonders.[/quote:2xq6mdma]WRONG!!!!! Can AM has auto locking front diff.[/quote:2xq6mdma]

    yes, but u have to be @ a certain speed for it to engage. watch the vids on youtube. all the others are locked once u pull the lever/flip switch.

    someone did a test putting the can am against a wall and it just dug w/ 3 wheels, while the rest of the quad crawled right up it.

    its a good system for general use, but for true locking 4wd, it sucks.

    the can ams do very well in most of the mud pit races i believe, they are a good machine… if u can afford them.

    I have had a couple different Kawasaki ATVs and they have been very
    dependable. It has a small lever on the left side of the handle bar so you can easily engage the front differential lock. If i were to get something
    different it would be a Suzuki or Artic Cat. They all make good machines (except Polaris!!!) IMO

    I am trying to convince my dad to get rid of the quad and get a Mule with
    the diesel engine in it.. :D[/quote:4juq3y7c]

    Better keep the quad so you can pull the diesel UTV around with :p . Kawi and Kubota leave a lot to be desired.

    The Mule is a work horse. Plain and simple. Doesn’t have the bells and whistles that the Rangers, Razors, or Rhino’s have…but will get the job done.

    As far as the diesel Mules, I do not have any experience with them.

    Our Mule gets a healthy workout year round, and has yet to let me down. [=}=]
