Just got an 09 Rancher ES with power steering. Also had a rack put on. I really like it a lot. I had a hard time choosing between the ES or the foot shift and finally ended up with the ES. Hope I don't regret the ES but I suspect the issues may not be that bad. Forums tend make problems sound more widespread than they really are.

Anyway, we'll see I guess. Maybe I'll get lucky.

Here's a pic of the wife trying it out on the back part of our property.

Having a rear basket on my Honda Rancher caused a problem but saved me last spring . I was driving up a steep incline with water-bars across the road . It is a real steep climb . Had a cooler and stuff in the rear basket and had my wife sitting behind me . I put a ladderstand pad on the front of the basket for her to sit on . She was sitting back a ways and when I hit the 3rd water bar and started to climb , I popped a wheelie . The ATV had the front end in the air and it was resting on the rear tires and basket . I hit the kill switch , had the wife get off , then I did . Pulled the front end down and started it up . If it hadn't been for the basket , it would have flipped on us . I learned a valuable lesson ............
Put some weight on the front end and lean forward when climbing hills .
Like Mama used to say , "stupid is as stupid does" !
