Hey guys,

Im thinking about picking up a Rancher I found for sale, I want to know if it is a good price. I found a 2010 Camo Rancher 420, ES, and power steering. It has 600 miles on it and about 140 hrs on it. Only added accessory is a gun rack. The guy wants $4200, but I was thinking of offering him $3800. It is a very clean quad. Is it worth $4200?

On another note my last quad was a 450 foreman with ES. From what I read the 420 with fuel injection will pretty much be on par with the 450 carbureted, correct?

Thanks

price isn't that bad, but honestly., if you do a search here, you NOT going to find many guys that WANT ES machine, they just honestly have more issue's

SOME never do, but MANY do have them!
so food for thought maybe on you??
I'd start at 3500 too and see what he says,
its an 8 yr old machine now, but 4x4 atv's do hold value, or at least owners TRYING to sell them sure think so LOL

You know where the 3800 is going, 4K, so at that price, I would personally be inclined to find a left over 2016, gear, no power steering and likely in that mid 5 range.

I really don't want to spend more than $4500 right now, hence looking for a used quad. If I could buy new right now I would. Track N Trail in State College Pa has some good deals on left overs, but once you add freight and set up it pushes even the cheapest Rancher 4x4 over $6k.

As far as the ES goes, I loved it on my 01 foreman and never had any issues, Id like my new quad to have it was well so my wife can put around the farm and haul hay and grain without having to mess around with a foot shifter.

I will try and offer $3500 cash and see what he says.

If you are buying from a private person and you can get together on a really cheap price to put on paper so the tax grabbers cant add $$$$ when you register it.. Ya sure if its clean and runs good NO SMOKE and shift good and can get it for 3500-3700, go for it.. If you are buying from a dealer and can't hide the what you paid for it YOU MIGHT AS WELL BUY NEW..

A brand new 2016 Honda Rancher TRX420TE1 ES is $4,499.00 out the door at Shawnee Honda (Oklahoma). Fortunately I bought mine there in April for $3,999.00 out the door.

also, if you buy out of state, you can save on sales tax, until you register it in PA<
plus , if you ONLY plan to use on your own land, you DON"T even need to register it too! so, taxes will not need to paid till someone does register it??
but I can relate to not wishing to spend more than what your budget is allowing

but at 5200 for a new one, or 3800 for a 7+ yr old one??
its a iffy call there, just to stay on budget!
a lot of folks sure seem to think THERE atv' never looses any money as it ages??
have you even looked at kelly blue book to see what the price should be?

Low miles and the ES and power steering - those are great features. Looks like a great deal to me. Quoted prices for new machines don't compare well unless you have the same features and consider taxes and dealer fees. The dealer wants $500 just to open the box, plus a shipping fee, etc.

Electric shift.

Instead of flicking your foot to shift gears, you push a button, which activates a motor, which shifts your wheeler.

Lot of electronic crap on them that can and eventually will mess up.

Some people don't have problems with it. A LOT of people have a LOT of problems with it.

Just had this pop up.

$4699 + tax (if applicable) out the door on a 2017 4wd footshift 420.

No wonder nobody has shown much interest in my 08 I had listed a few weeks ago....
