Edcyclopedia, Brakes, brakes we don't need no stinking brakes, just flip it in 4W drive over it.
I must be getting old!
NH has lots of hills & mountains, so brakes are a nice feature.[&:]
Trees hurt!

I bought my Kawasaki 300 Prairie 4x4 brand new in 2000. I couldn't afford a Honda at the time. I now have over 5300 miles on it and haven't had a bit of problems with it. I know I am going to have to think about replacing the drive belt in the near future, it is starting to slip under a load, but that's to be expected.

Honda of course! But I'm biased since I am a technician for them. However, the new 420s are awesome.

I have a John Deere, which is made by Bombardier, which I believe is Can-Am now, right?

I have rode a lot of friends atv's but the honda is probably the most dependable. I have a 450 foreman and use it for short logging and plowing a 900 foot driveway. I've had it since 99 and the only thing I've replaced is the battery.

This is a really random poll and it will eventually result in a really random result.

Different people want quads for different reasons. But some of the really, really time-proven smaller ones are theHonda FourTrax 300's and any of the Kawasaki Bayou/Prairies (185-300cc) and the Yamaha Warrior/BigBear/Bruin.
