Go for it! Buy one and leave us Redline owners alone on our forum unless you want some information about what this forum is about!

Re: In the Market for a UTV (with a few questions!)

Thank goodness no one pointed him in the right direction with some facts he might understand about China crap & better made products.

oh! wait!

I did!

Is this what this forum is coming to?
Someone comes on to ask a simple question & everyone jumps on the "No China Crap bandwagon?"
We sure as hell can't point him in the Redline direction. There out of business.
Yea, there's used & some old stock, But some people don't want that.
They want New cars, Warranty's, customer support, Dealers to support them, Etc.

Some are ignorant about China made cars.
They look at the price & that's all they see.

These responses just make us look bad.
I don't want this forum be known as "Those Redline guys are Assholes"

Do we really need to go there?

Re: In the Market for a UTV (with a few questions!)

I kept it logical why pay 10k for chinese built with used riots availiable. I assumed he had some interest in redline utv's as he posted on a redline forum. I implied the rhino knock-off as being way over priced. Much cheaply made chinese stuff if less than half price of quality (think harbour frieght) hence a "bargain" unless you are trying to make a living with the tool.
To each his own. Next time I won't take the bait and start off with logic.

Re: In the Market for a UTV (with a few questions!)

Thank you XR Mikey and those of you that provided actual facts vice thee unrequired economics lesson and name calling. I understand pride in your equipment as I also understand brand faith fullness. I also understand forums as I'm an avid European car enthusiast and on multiple forums involving European cars. I am use to forum flaming and honestly wasn't looking to start a fire, just seeking actual information. I realize I am in the wrong place. I also realize theres an obvious difference in the maturity and Class levels in a UTV forum compared to the average euro car forum, but In my car forums, people love the hobby in general and versed in other products/brands/car manufacturers and are able to give intelligent replies to a variety of topics involving them. I see that isn't possible for everyone here. I'm not sure which direction I will go with my search for the UTV, but if this is forum is a snapshot of the UTV community, I may just stay off forums, lol.

Well, it doesn't look like anyone on this forum has any REAL experience with these odes utvs. So I would say again, buy one and then you can let us all know how it turns out. That is my thought and comment to your original question. Good luck to you on all the forums that you spend time on.

I bought one of these and sold it soon after But it was called a Rouch or as I named it any many others had a Douch , its basicly a yamaha rhino clone with some cheap cool looking rims ,seats, lights ,some piss poor shocks and a arms bad design ect they look cool and are ok for light use smooth roads no jumps , but will break if you go off road, jump it have fun with it , parts are a pain in the ass to find and not cheap some yamaha parts work with some finess " hammer torch & welder , there are many clean name brand used utvs out there for the same price or less if you go with the off brand plan on replacing the shocks , relocating the shock mounts and buy a welder, be a great fabricator . plan a 3 to 1 ratio 1 hour of fun = 3 hours of repair and the harley davidson rule HD = hundred dollar, just my experience, I redid alot of stuff on mine and in the end it was still a pile of crap.... and I did stay at a holiday inn express last night

Re: In the Market for a UTV (with a few questions!)

You seem like a fairly smart fella for at least asking questions and doing some research before buying. My business partner and I spent nearly 2 years researching the off-highway UTV/ATV market for suitable products to use in a rental fleet for several locations. I can tell you that we made trips to California to drive and investigate in person the cars that seemed to meet the minimum spec for size and seats and use( sand vs dessert) I can tell you that we went to the BMS Chinese plant in City of Industry california and drove 2 of the cars fresh out of the crate and assembled that week for sale. The 2 seater would not start as it had lost its prime in the fuel injectors from not being started for approx 3 days. Also, the light rack with 6 lamps on it had 4 of the 6 that would not work. The instrument panel (LCD) was inop and the wiring harness was not insulated or even grometted through any bars in the frame..how long before chafing shorts out or casues a fire from vibration and flexing etc. They used a CHERRY motor as a knock off of the 1100cc toyota/Suzuki motor not sure which but the sales person was not sure either. gave them the benefit of the doubt and tried a 4 seater. only 2 lights out on this one and the fuel gauge worked but no tach, and no speedo. I got up on the rear suspension and actually bounced on it...it bent I weigh 285 and stand about 6'2". When I drove the Car, I subjected it to the same things I would expect a renter to do...treated like SHi=ite. I power shifted it twice from 2nd 3rd and into 4th. on the second pass in the parking lot I could not get it to go into fourth gear. As Klem had mentioned the Chinese use inferior Steel More Coke, and less nickel, other metals that strengthen the metal and heat Anneal the parts. The steel issue alone is enough to stay away from any type of vehicle that will be used to haul "ass or trash". The lack of overall Quality control is one of the many reasons they can sell a 4 seat utv for thousands cheaper than domestic. Sorry about the novel here but the guys on this site have a product that is innovative and holds up well( with the exception of the gen1 tranny which by the way is CHINESE!. I encourage you to look at the Weber motor made in Germany. That little engine is darn near bullet proof and while you pay for that quality it takes abuse that would grenade many of its lesser competitors. Polaris has used the Weber in a few of its Sleds ( I beleive the FST series if I am not mistaken. I would agree with most folks on here that you would be better served to buy something domestic and have the availabilty for parts locally and forums like this one that can provide invaluable resources to help you make your ride last longer, and allow you to spend more time in the saddle instead of under it!

First off, welcome to the forums.
Sorry your first post, progressed to name calling and verbal attacks. That will stop now.

I've seen several of the machines you're talking about, out on the trails and at the sand Dunes.
Long story short, I would recommend you stay away from them. I would stick to the big name brands.
