Default What should I buy?

I am 13 and have grown out of my old 150cc Quad, and need a new one. I will be mainly using it for trail riding in my backyard (20 acres) and once or twice a month will need to tow some logs in a trailer (about 150kg). There is no mud, just a little bumpy with some small hills. I have got a budget of about 6000 Australian Dollars ($4750 American) and it can be over 550cc because it will be to powerful for me. I don't really want something like a Brute Force, I would prefer something like a Yamaha Raptor or Suzuki LTZ as I like the sporty/race type quads. What do you guys think I should get. I would absolutely love to have a Can-Am Renegade but they are just to expensive, but if someone knows where I could get one for a little cheaper even if it is second hand I would really like to know. Please give any suggestions that you may have.

A Raptor 660 would be the best value. I've seen them used for $2000 locally, some even less and in good shape. A Honda 400ex is a very reliable used quad but doesn't have quite as much power.

For a 13 year old I think a Raptor 350 would be more appropriate than a Raptor 660 but the rider's size and experience matter as much age. The 350 would be a good step up in power from the 150.

A Honda 250 ex would be considerably more powerful than a 110cc quad too. The 300ex has a bit more power but is smaller in size that something like a Raptor or 400cc sport quad. The advantage the 250ex has is that its a semi-auto foot shift so no manual clutch along with being small and lightweight.
