Default What to buy

hello to all of you folks who are much more knowledgeable than I.

looking to buy a youth atv for my son. The alterra 150 ticks many of my boxes including price points and a hitch, but I've heard the odd comment about them being no better than than the cheapie Chinese ones.

Any thoughts on the general quality of the textron models......or any thoughts on what similar youth models would be better to spend my hard earned money on.

Any of your thoughts/opinions would be much appreciated.

Nothing wrong with the Cat brand of atv's. Polaris has the nicest riding youth machine with yamaha right behind them. The polaris and yam hold their value a bit more due to their popularity.

Thanks for the response. I like many things about the cat brand........and the sale prices seem to be more significant than the polaris, yamaha, and suzukis I've seen.

Cat's are probably a Kymco. Which is a good thing.
