Hey,

I'm new to this forum. I wanted to check it out and see how people like their pioneers. I currently own a Ranger 900 and like it, but I really like the concept of the pioneer 4. I use mine a lot for farm work, but still enjoy hauling my kids around on the farm and trail riding. My next side by side purchase I plan on checking into the pioneer 4.

thanks!

Welcome to the forum! I have three kids myself and a 700-4. I use my Pioneer to seat 5, and the 900 ranger crew was really the only other good option. A few big sellers to me over the ranger, was the price, the shorter wheelbase, and overall build quality seemed much more solid on the Honda.

Good luck to you in your decision and if you have any specific questions about the Pioneer 700-4 we have quite a few owners on here.

Welcome! This is our first sxs and we've only had it a couple weeks now and we're really enjoying it. We've used it hunting and it's a lot handier for us than our 4 wheelers.

Thanks for the nice welcome.

I hope to get back to a Honda some time soon. up until recently, no one but Polaris really built a machine that was a good work/recreation machine. We have a farm and I didn't want something like a JD Gator, Kubota rtv or a kawi mule, i need a work machine most of the time, but still like to play. that's what led me to the ranger.
Polaris frustrates me because they release a lot of cool models, but seem to leave the r&d work to their customers, and their reliability is par at best.....but Polaris has a lot of great features the others could learn from. Polaris just seems disposable to me, they just aren't built for long term service.

so i hope to learn more about the pioneer and see how it stacks up.

just a few pro/cons i see to the pioneer after researching it.

cons
lack of power/performance
no low range in auto style tranny
no EPS
storage could be better

pros

reliability
safety
price
durability

it just seems i have to weigh durability/reliability over features.

it seems like Honda and Yamaha in releasing their side by sides use what works and slowly innovate over time. where as Polaris, arctic cat and can am are always changing but suffer in reliability and durability.

thanks again!
