SPORTSMAN BIG BOSS 6X6 570 EPS
when we rolled this six-wheeled beast off the trailer at the test location, there were a few snickers. Then we drove it, and the scoffing stopped. The machine’s additional axle makes it significantly longer (and louder, which cost it some key points) than the others in this category, and testers initially worried that the length would make the machine too unwieldy in the woods. But by the end of the first run around the course, those fears were allayed.
The Big Boss proved surprisingly nimble, thanks to its power steering system. Yes, the additional length does make for a larger turning radius than that of a standard two-axle machine, but the difference was less noticeable in the field than expected. And that extra axle creates room for a second rider.
This is a true six-wheel-drive vehicle— we could not find any terrain or obstacle to stop it.
The Big Boss 6x6 fills the void between ATVS and UTVS. With an MSRP of $10,999, it’s not inexpensive. But its vastly superior storage capacity, all-terrain capability, and potential utility over other ATVS tested made it the unanimous choice for Great Buy honors.
