New to ATV's
There is a huge difference between the bayou 220/250 and the suzuki 230. The 230 will pull stumps out of the ground with the bayou tied on for the ride! I own and have rebuilt both of them. The 230 is a torque monster for its size. The 220 on the other hand doesn't have good power until you get the revs up. It will haul 280lbs around ok, but I really think you'd be happier witth something bigger (or a 230, lol).
The bayou is extremely reliable though. Bulletproof little quads. They don't like lots of deep water riding because of the drum brakes all the way around. Water will get into the driveshaft and rust out the bearings too. I filled my whole boot with grease and silicon to try to stop that.
Anyway, if you don't mind going slow up hills n that and just putting around, the bayou is ok. It makes a good work horse for chores around your property. That's what I use mine for. Donuts, jumping, racing, etc,,, no way.
