With a question that a user here asked us regarding PRM ATV and their skid plates led us to do some research and it appears that PRM ATV has closed up shop. Our research concluded that the owner has decided to retire; which leaves us saddened as we love our PRM skid plates as they have withstood the abuse we have put them through ( Review Can Be Found Here ). Some of their products appear to be available via an eBay store page.

Some of you may not be familiar with Yanmar, but farmers and boaters probably are. This Japanese company is one of the largest makers of diesel engines and is what comes in most boats over 30 feet long. Yanmar has also been building tractors and smaller construction equipment for awhile now. This past year they began selling Utility Task Vehicles, known as the Bull and the Longhorn.
When you look at their two UTV models you may see a resemblance to Yamaha’s Viking models. Well, there’s a reason for that. Last year Yanmar made a partnership deal with Yamaha, which means the Bull and Longhorn are their versions of the three and six seater Vikings. They come with the same Yamaha 700 gas engine.
Yanmar’s new UTVs are sold exclusively through the company’s extensive North American Compact Construction Equipment and Agriculture Tractor dealer network. Both models come with electric power-steering, with the Bull selling for $14,395, and the Longhorn costing $15,499.
Lonestar Racing (LSR) has been an ATV and UTV frame and suspension leader for over 20 years. During that time, we’ve seen our industry take hits related to the general economy and waning numbers of available sport machines. Those hard times put a strain on many aftermarket companies, and some even had to close their doors for good. But, with LSR’s reputation as one of the foremost ATV/UTV companies, they kept operations running through the housing crisis.
LSR manufactures high-quality ATV and UTV suspension components for almost every sport model that has seen high-level success in competition. From standard travel to long-travel suspension, they have your sport machine covered. With the rise of the UTV’s popularity, they have been cranking out some very impressive parts for them. The best thing a company like LSR can do is to physically test each part and improve on OEM designs. LSR has been manufacturing parts for the new Can-Am Maverick X...
There are as many reasons that buyers use to select a new UTV as there are grains of sand in a face full of dune roost. Sure, they differ from person to person and from family to family. Some, happily, are based in fact and logic and, frankly, salesmen hate those people. They would much rather deal with an impulse buyer that responds to a pitch like, "You would look great in this machine!" More so than any other OHV, a UTV There are some very good reasons to both sides of the question.
CHOICES Machines with more than two seats come in a couple of different flavors. The first type are those that sacrifice cargo area for added seating. The primary examples here are the Honda Pioneer line and the Kawasaki Teryx. In both cases, the overall size of the machine is almost identical in the twoor four-seater (three- and five-seater for the Pioneer 1000-5). The Teryx4 has permanently limited cargo area, while the Honda’s bed floor cleverly converts into two rear seats. It has a full-size dump bed...
