    Looks like the new teryx2 has a dump bed but the teryx4 doesn't.

    Buy a winch for whatever you purchase. I've been looping it over the roof and some winches will come with a wireless remote now, makes it easy to recover a deer on solo hunts. Just winch it up in the bed.

    I have a rzr 800. It isnt the easiest thing in the world to put a deer in the back of. Have to tie it up like a pretzel. Lol. I love it though. Go anywhere no problem. For what you want I would go with the ranger. I have rode many hours on a ranger and loved it. They are a nice, comfy, ride. And are workhorses.

    Times 2 on the Yamaha Viking. Absolutely love the machine! I looked at most all the models you are talking about and after getting in the Viking I was sold. I'm a fairly big guy at 6'4" and have plenty of room. Have had 3 big adults and still had room. Hope this helps.

    I never hear people mention Bobcat? I got a Polaris ATV but got a buddy who bought one for work and it's a powerhouse! He did tell me it has a Polaris engine. I didn't realize that.

    I bought a 570 last summer and I like it fine except it comes with a piece o crap battery. My battery connections were bad and I lost all power with a few hours of use. Had to haul it back. I upgraded the battery and have had no problem since. That was a huge PIA. If I had to buy over, with that experience in mind....I'd probably go Gator.

    Bought a 2010 Ranger. No issues, would buy another in a heartbeat.

    Funny, I am pretty sure I'll get beat up if I ride one of those around these parts, unless of course I get a side car for my tree stand buddy, and put up plenty of steer a deer.

    In most cases a utv can do everything and then some that an atv can. Disking should be no different

    After owning RZR,s and Rangers and also riding with hundreds of them I would stay away from them. If you ride like a grandpa and baby them they will give you plenty of service. My RZR right now has 3500 miles on it. Already on the 2nd set of a arm bushings and wheel bearings and yes I grease it. Rack and pinion is out of it while I speak. Replaced the ECM already. U joints going to need replaced again. Battery lasted a year. All my buddies have been replacing bushings and bearings even sooner than me. Polaris has a score of F with the Better Business Bureau. If you want something dependable you may want to look at the New Can Am defender or Honda pioneer.
