When shopping for an ATV, you need it to be able to maintain control over the roughest of terrain while providing durability and versatility. The top three ATV Quads available on the market right now are the Can-Am Outlander X MR 1000R, Yamaha Grizzly 700 EPS, and Textron Alterra TBX 700. All these machines have the range and four-wheel ability you need when working your acres or heading out of town for the weekend. You can land yourself a functional ATV for about six grand, but when you really need to rely on its ability to be your toolbox, gun rack, and delivery van for your farm, expect to spend close to ten thousand. We’ve brought together the three machines that will surpass your expectations below along with some user feedback. Do you own one of these ATVs? Read up and then share your experiences below.
