Welcome to the forum! I have been selling the Massimo UTV's for a year now with really good luck. The Massimo UTV's are manufactured by hisun and are literally the same machine as many other companies are selling, save for a few options that may be slightly different. Bennche, q-link, Supermach, etc are all the same machine with different stickers on them. However... do a little homework and you will find that Massimo comes with a one year parts and labor warranty on most of the machine. Some of the competition does not cover labor in their warranty and the duration may not be as long.
- Priced right compared to the "Name Brands"
- Clean welds, good plating on hardware, good quality hardware, nice thick body panels
- Lots of friendly people on this forum to help with any questions you may have
- New machines come loaded with options that would cost you at least 1K on a "Name Brand" machine
- Good looking capable machines!
- Parts are available from a variety of sources since so many distributors import the Hisun machines
- Many parts are even interchangeable with the Yamaha Rhino
- Little stuff like cheap rubber takes away from the overall quality of the machine in my opinion. (not enough to pay $4,000 more for a yamaha though!)
- Dealer setup is crucial to a smooth running machine. A good dealer will put some hours into a new machine double checking electrical connections and changing fluids, etc.
- Common to have cosmetic blemishes on new machines associated with being shipped half way around the world
- Folding windshield seam is at eye level... i personally would toss the windshield in the corner of the garage and go with an aftermarket yamaha unit, or run without it.
Lets be honest... they are cheaper than a Yam/Pol/Can-Am for a reason... but not in such a way that they are no good. My best advice would be to go to a dealer and sit in a new machine, look under the hood, put your hands on it and get a feel for what you are buying. There are many satisfied customers on here... and a few with some nightmare stories, just like any other brand.
Personally I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Hisun 500/700 over a new yamaha rhino any day of the week!
