The Recon 250 has enough power to pull you, but with your size, I would get something a little bigger. You might be a little cramped on the Recon 250. If you're looking to buy a new ATV, the 420 Rancher is the next biggest ATV in the Honda line and it would have more than enough power for you. There's a few more bigger models, but you're probably not interested in those, since you want the smallest you can get. I would stay away from the 125, it's way to small for you, in my opinion.
If you're buying used, there's a few more options, such as the Fourtrax 300 or the 450 Foreman.
I'm not sure about Yamaha, but I know they make a 350, 450, 550, and 700 Grizzly. You can get a 660 Grizzly used, but they don't make them anymore. The 350 would have plenty enough power for you.
Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!
You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
