Which one of these is better for what i want? I really dont like auto, i like to choose my gears but i hate the ES so i'll go standard shift if i get a foreman, but I'm gonna use it for Hunting, trail rides ( river crossing and mud ) and use it on the farm doing minor work, and probly get stuck planting food plots, pulling equipment. I Don't really like the air cooled but i havn't heard of any problems with the foremans overheating......

So what do you guys think? We had a 450 foreman ES before and got rid of it for a mule 3010 but i wanna buy myself another 4 wheeler........

I would get the S model of the forman. Not the rubicon because you still have the ESP and auto on that bike. So i suggest you to get the S model of the forman

yeah sounds to me like you would be happier with the Foreman S, and you save a chunk of change

Especially since you don't like the auto I would get the foreman s, these things are work horses.

You can shift the Rubi in ESP, but there is realpower difference between the two. But I would get the Foreman over the Rubi due to its simplicity.

how much more power does the rubi have over the foreman500???????? I don't think theres that much power difference considering you going throu an auto tranny compared to a normal manual tranny, Electronic shift sucks ours never shifted when you hit the button sometimes it took a couple times to get it to shift, same with other peoples that i've talked to that have the 450.....

new body style along with the 500cc motor started in 05. Before that was the trusty 450.
