Has anyone bought the Corvus diesel utv we have two dealers locally and wondering what they are like? My kubota is out of warranty next March and looking to change could really do with a little more speed on the road and am trying for 2 months to get a price of jd dealer with no joy had Polaris before and lots of little niggly bits gave trouble maybe the new ones are better? Are there other options out there?

I’m afraid it would be to expensive to tax and insure and test yearly here in Ireland
We gotta tax and MOT ours but, was a lot cheaper to buy than a noddy buggy,

is more reliable than a noddy buggy,

has a working heater and leccy windows unlike a noddy buggy

Jimny will also be there in the morning whereas the noddy buggy unless it’s guarded by an SAS detachment will have been nicked.

Another problem would be the drivers age as would have to be over 25 to get cheaper insurance where as the utv can be driven by 16 year olds with a tractor license

"Noddy buggies" are not as expensive as Jimny's, saw a s/h one at Lloyds over £20K and won't run on red.

We always fancied one and bought one after having a quad nicked.
as it was the bloody thing spent more time at the dealers in bits than it did being used so it went back after 6 months. Jimny has been a much better vehicle for the job

I’ll be doing 800+ hours per year a lot of it on the road between 17 different pieces of land so want reliablity
40mph and quick getting there with the Polaris, plus on red 👍🏻
If you want petrol I’d probably go can am as their rapid but don’t know about reliability
