Pure utility?

Hello Brutes, I’d appreciate your opinions in helping me make up my mind. I own a 2016 Brute with only 400kms on it, mint. I bought my brute thinking I was going to do big mileage trail riding but my priorities have changed and I now need my quad for 99% pure work. Hauling firewood, pulling trailers & farm implements. Are the newer Brute Forces a reliable/durable farm tool or should I be thinking about trading for a Honda Foreman? Any advice is appreciated.

A little known fact is that the Brute Force, no matter what year, is and has always been one of the most capable and dependable work quads ever built. It was built with the HP and torque to out-do most any other on the market. It's just people buy them for the fun factor more but out here many ranchers only run Brute forces for many jobs even herding cattle. Keep your 2016...she's as good as they get. But do maintain it well.

I wholeheartedly agree.


I use my 2005 750 Brute constantly on my small farm. I use it to pull my utility trailer when cleaning my pasture (be sure to load balance it well). I drag branches, use it to run fence. I use a Kolpin 2" receiver.

There are places on my property so swampy that only the Brute can reach them.

I have a boom sprayer, spreader, drag harrow, etc., all for my Brute.

If it doesn't already have it, add a winch and light bar, and there's very little it can't do.

Thank you! This is exactly the feedback I need to hear. I love my brute and just needed the reassurance that it is built as tough as it looks and feels. With 400kms it’s barely broken in. Only the excessive heat on the legs and thirsty fuel consumption are its weak points in my opinion, anyone feel the same or am I looking to find problems that aren’t there???
