Default Any Experience with Chinese made Rhinos -- Good or Bad

It has been a while since I've been on the forum, but I'm looking to possibly purchase a UTV vehicle in the near future. I'm seeing a lot of Rhino copies these days (Tomoto, Hysong, Hisun - and maybe there are more). Anyway, I'm looking to see if anybody has any experience with these (good or bad)? From the little I've seen just from pictures, they look pretty nice and pretty much identical to the Rhinos. Would like to get some feedback. And I'm not looking for die hard Yamaha responses just bashing the copies please. Trying to find out from those that actually have direct experience with these machines. Thanks

Default Yamaha Rhino 660 clones

Found these clones so far:

1. Tomoto 700
2. Hisun 700
3. Hysong 700
4. Motobishi 700
5. QLink Front Runner 700
6. Powermax Rough Rider 700

They all look the same. Does anybody have any experience with any of these models?

The Chinese are excellent copy cats of everything and cost reducing it along the way. They will use cheaper materials and take things out. Testing won't be deep either. Sure it looks the same, sure it will run but if you want something you can have confidence in for years to come I suggest steer clear - otherwise get ready for maintenance and repair hell.....just my opinion and experience with buddies that have bought chinese quads for kids. In my line of work also (engineering) this has been our experience....

I read on here a couple years ago, through a thread of a guy that was testing one. He had no bad reviews, he owned both a Yamaha and the chinese knockoff. One thing to make sure before you buy one is availability of parts. Quality will be lacking so you will need parts along the way.

There is a guy here in town that has one, it looks nice and its been running around for quite a while..
