cows will think its grass and just naturally follow the ATV… maybe). The instrument panel has a speedometer, odometer, dual trip monitors, engine temp, clock, hour meter and all the necessary warning lights to help monitor what is going on with the machine. With a 5- gallon fuel capacity you can definitely go out and ride for a while before needing to refill, and with 9.4 inches of ground clearance there won’t be much that can stop this awesome ATV. Stop on into your local Kawasaki dealer and test drive one for yourself, or visit them on line at www.kawasaki.com. CAN AM OUTLANDER L LE We haven’t ever covered the Can- Am ATV’s yet, but they definitely are worth presenting to you great readers! This slick, awesome looking machine will make all heads turn when you’re out gathering the herd up. The famous Rotax engine is no stranger to any ATV enthusiast, with 48 horsepower or 570cc V-twin liquid-cooled engine, the Outlander L LE means business. Standard engine braking and a CVT transmission make this one heck of a nice handling machine. With independent suspension and power steering the Outlander will handle and ride like a Cadillac (as they say). Standard 12-inch cast aluminum wheels with mounted Carlisle ACT HD tires enables the Outlander to go through about any terrain you can throw at it. Will the smooth easy ride 50 | WORKING RANCH | MARCH 2016 compromise the towing capability of the Can AM outlander, you ask? No, it can tow a whopping 1300 pounds! Want to add a winch to this ATV? Won’t be a problem or hassle because it's already factory prewired for a winch. Most of us ranchers want, wait no, we need the front and rear brush guard bumpers, but with a Can Am you won’t have to call it an accessory because it comes standard. With a Premium pearl white painted plastic finish this thing will attract everyone around the ranch. Take the keys out because everyone is going to want to ride it! Get to your local dealer and check out a Can Am Outlander L LE model and you won’t be disappointed. Or, go online to http://canam. brp.com/off-road/atv/outlander /outlander-l-le.html. HONDA FOURTRAX RANCHER The name alone says it all; the Honda FourTrax Rancher was designed with the rancher in mind. Honda offers a wide variety of options for the Rancher to help you manage the cost of the machine. Options include two or four-wheel drive, independent rear suspension or a swing arm configuration, automatic or manual transmission, and power steering. The Rancher is powered by a 420cc liquid cooled fuel-injected OHV wetsump longitudinally-mounted singlecylinder four-stroke engine (ED: that wins the prize for most connected words… ever), and weighs in at around 573 pounds, which is perfect for just about any job you need an ATV to do. For tight work this thing has a turning radius of around 9.2 feet, and holds around 3.9 gallons of fuel to get you where you’re headed. I stopped into my local Honda dealer and test drove one of these and lemme tell ya, these things are awesome! The Honda Rancher is priced very economically and the ride is superb. I drove the manual transmission (control freak) and it just responded quick and smooth while shifting through the gears. To learn more, stop into your local Honda Power Sports dealer or go online to http://powersports.honda.com/. So, if you’re in the market for a new ATV have some fun one afternoon and go test drive these machines. Hats off to Polaris, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Can-Am and Honda for always providing us ranchers with the best of the best and making our lives easier day by day.
