    Buggy for the bush
    #1
    Question
    Hi guys i need some of your input. My buddy is in the market for a turnkey buggy or one we can assemble ourselves. There is a catch however, we live in pennsylvania in the coal banks and mountainous rocky area. There for the trails are tight most of the time. The max is about 8 feet which is rare. Most places are about 6 feet wide. So do any of you guys know any one who has turnkey buggys at like 72-80 inch width. His price range is $5-$10,000. He wants a 2 seater and dual A-Arm suspension front and back would be prefferable. If you guys could help i would really appreciate it!!

    Thanks Guys!!!

    In that price range, it will be hard to beat a Rhino or Razr for the type of riding you describe.

    See what your state allows in various off road areas and go maximum width. A Razr seems to be narrow and a used one could be found in that price range.

    An 80 inch width really opens up the options. First I think of the Drakart 2 seater. ATVR's TazCar. ProtoDie has a 2 seater. The Desert Dog Coyote fits the bill, although not sure if it's two seat. The Edge Piranha and Barracuda are the right size but single seaters. Some of the sand car builders might have one that narrow.

    The $10,000 dollar limit might be hard to stick to, though, for a nice one of the above cars. Maybe a project car.

    Then there are the bigger China buggies. He should have no trouble finding one of those in his price range.

    Are you any where near pottstown(SP)or minersville?Theres a large group of guys that ride pilots there.

    I would say pilot or rzr also.For that much you could buy two pilots.

    Thanx for all the suggestions odypilots. Idk for certain if 10,000 is his absolute limit but he just wanted to know what kind of buggy he could get for that. I will have to research them and see what he says. i think he got the buggy idea from me because i am currently buildin one but he doesnt have the resources. So he just wants to buy one.

    Bullnerd we live in Barnesville which is about 30-45mins from minersville. Are any of those guys members here??

    Thanx Guys!

    I don't think so,but they are all on the pilot-ody site.

    The woods are tight over there,wouldn't want much wider than a pilot.

    I think there's a guy selling two identical pilot/cr500 in MA also.

    I'll see if i can find the link.
