    You might be able to fit two rounds in the back. In it's defense it does say light duty.

    I'm thinking it's either a) a lawn tractor with two seats, a roll cage and small body on the back, b) it's a golf cart with a small body on the back and a roll cage or c) it's a cheap Chinese knock-off not and would not work well for most folks unless they're just aiming to drive to and from their flower garden.

    My own take . . . if you want a tractor . . . get a real tractor. If you want a side-by-side ATV Ute . . . get a real side-by-side ATV Ute. If you want a golf cart, get a golf cart.

    And if it is a cheap Chinese knock-off . . . I've seen too many folks buy cheap Chinese knock off ATVs and then have parts go or have them break down and not be able to get parts for them . . .

    I don't know what to say about it. Its only got a 9hp engine, yet you can haul 250lbs in the back and tow 500lbs with it and it can go 30mph. That's impressive for a 9hp engine, IMO. I can see doing any one of those things, but to be able to do all, is impressive.

    It's just RWD, though. If there were like a million options and add-ons like with some other utes, like a Gator, then they might be onto something.

    needs to be about $300-$500 cheaper, too, so i can justify buying some "off-brand" as opposed to a used known brand.

    I have to drive by a very nice looking used Gator 6x4 on my way to work every day. If I had $3000 to spend, that would be the way. I'm going to start traveling a different way.

    It's cute, but I much prefer this...of course, it cost a good deal more. Right now, I have the backhoe removed and the 3PH deployed to move trailers, splitter around. I really don't need this thing, but I sure do have a lot of fun with it. :lol:
