I'm considering getting an ATV for the farm. Would be used for putting up polywire, repairing high tensile, getting dead deer out of the woods, checking crops etc., hopefully never for chasing loose cows but you never know. No mudbogging nonsense. My budget is $2000 tops. I had pretty well settled on getting an ATV because I think they'd be handier for putting up polywire. A guy I work for has a gator with a cab that he uses to put up polywire; it always seemed like a pain to me. You have to get out every time you put a post in, and its hard to hold the reel and drive while it's paying out. Seems like you could make a reel mount for the atv easier. Then I found out there was an old Mule in good shape in the neighborhood. They're asking $1200 for it. Which way would you go?
