We were very impressed with Cub Cadet’s latest UV offering; it’s a significant step above the basic “ATV with a bed” UVs we’ve had experience with in the past. This would make a great general-purpose vehicle on the ranch, and it’d easily make you the envy of your hunting buddies. (Camo versions — pictured above — are available.) With its 2″ receiver, you could move trailers around or haul significant materials, and the bed is large enough to transport a couple of people over short distances.
Certainly at just under $10k, this is a significant investment, but this is where we’d imagine the Cat engine’ll really shine. This UV could easily last many, many years with only basic maintenance and minor repair. Everything is easy to access, and dealers are readily available for support.
If we had the acerage and the cash, we’d have one.
