Awesome Machine!
Recently bought a 500 for my dad to use on his farm. From day one he was smitten with it. The break in period was very taxing as he wanted to let loose with it. After the break in though? WOW! He goes everywhere with it. Checking on his cattle herd. Checking on the flock of sheep. Hauling stuff around with a trailer he built for it. Rain or shine he is out on the range. I've used it from him for some romping runs. Four wheel is pretty decent but when the lock is engaged in Low drive, nothing will stop this beast. Only regret is that i didnt opt for the 700 :)
Options we installed were wheel spacers for wider stance/stability, LED light bar for added illumination, and gun rack and storage bags for the trail.
I will give this machine a definite 10/10

Awesome Gator
I have had my msu 500 for a few months and it has not failed me yet it goes where its guided and its rock climbs like a beast I have took it into mud dirk rocks and water and have got water all the way to the hood and it only steam a little of the engine being hot but so far so good only one case where the whinch was needed but I have toped it out at 57mph so far it says do not exceed 40mph but I have got it to 57mph and it handles and acts like a Polaris or john Deere

8 weeks of duck hunting
Worked it hard for 8 weeks in flood rice and nasty Arkansas mud. Performed great. The guys in my club that have Rhino's, Polaris's, etc were extremely impressed by my 500. It performed as well if not better than machines that cost significantly more. Had it serviced and cleaned and it's no worse for the wear. Still functions great

We love our
Still taking it easy getting everything broke in as suggested in the owners manual. Already been a huge help carrying fertilzer tools etc to the garden. A little more noisy than I expected but not unbearable at all. In low and the diff locked I think it would climb a tree! The 3500 pound winch works great and has been a huge help pulling unwanted shrubs and bush's up.Great machine for the money, most folks are amazed at the cost with all the options. Looking forward to hunting season this year

Sells its self
Our location currently keeps this unit IN STOCK after great success with selling them and excellent customer satisfaction. This UTV is LOADED with options and peformance that would all most double the price from other manufactures.

Gets the job done and has fun doing it! To top if off the company is amazingly easy to deal with and very supportive not only before the sale, but after as well!

Just One Problem
This thing LOVES mud. We live on a very steep hill in heavy wooded terrain complete with all sizes of boulders up to volkswagen size. Usually the basic four drive is enough, but the all wheel lock is unstoppable. The unit was very serviceable and got all four of my deer I harvested this season up my hill ~ no problem. The one problem? Is now I don't think I can do without it!! I know I don't want to. Great machine and FUN.

So far so good!
We just got it last Thursday and have been learning the ropes. So far so good.
It's a little (really) noisy but runs well. Learning the gears is interesting but doable. Lots to learn but lots of fun while you're learning.
We like it.

Super Machine !
Bought this unit last month. I reviewed just about every machine out there and their prices . This Massimo tops them all. Great features, very comfortable, Great looking, fun to play in and a rugged workhorse ! Don't ride on your lawn unless you want it ripped to bits with these awesome 26" Wanda tires. The tread on the tires are brutally good. The rims are smoking hot beauties. This UTV has fun things like blinker lights, hazard lights that beep when turned on, and a horn. Great head lights w/ high beams you can see way ahead of you. Bucket seats w/ seatbelts you can nestle right into. A cig lighter type plug you can use for a variety of devices to help you out . Several storage compartments/ glove compartment with lots of room. Side mirrors that help out backing up with trailers. The digital dashboard tells you just about everything you need to know with its nice bright display. The 3500 lb. winch with remote control device and long chord is also a great set up. This thing does a great job with speed ( high gear ), Low for rough road/ up hill climbs. Does a great job navigating all sorts of terrain even without locking in 4WD, which is a breeze to use. Handles heavy bed loads and towing loads, even up hill. The price for all the features and fun things is so much better than other brands.. If your going to buy a UTV , do yourself a favor and look into this unit before making up your mind on a vehicle. All the goodies that come standard on this Massimo will cost you hundreds more on other brands. I don't like the fact that there is no rubber flaps or inside mud guards to protect the under hood compartment and lights. This could be a DIY projects easy enough. Another thing is Massimo needs to review their on line pdf owners manual.. there are several errors and omissions that should be reviewed . One thing off hand is that its says the digital display feature of Trip / Odometer button has TWO trip readings you can use. not correct. Mine has TRIP/ Odometer/ Hour meter ( which is much better anyways ) Thanks for making a great machine that's affordable and fun !

Love It!
We've had our 500 for about 6 months now and we love it! We've had it on the rockiest of terrains and through some pretty sizable mud bogs; only got stuck once, but the winch got us right out. We've gotten tons of compliments on it too. If you are looking for a machine that will take you anywhere you want to go, the 500 is the UTV for you. Big bang for your buck!

GREAT PRODUCT
I bought the Massimo 500 2013 model from TSC in Russell, Kentucky. It has been GREAT on the farm. I have out performed other utv's with ease. The 500 won't out run a razor of course, but it'll Climb, Climb and climb some more! I've had it in some nice mud holes, goes with ease. Comes stock with awesome tires, winch, roof and console compartments. Other brands you cough up big bucks on that!! I'll buy another one.

It's a Keeper
Purchased early 2012 from Midland, GA TSC. Had initial brake caliper problem solved quickly by Massimo. Great for farm work use. Price & quality of construction were big factors in purchase. Two suggestions; easier access to oil dip stick & less difficult bed release handle tension; otherwise a perfect machine.

Awesome machine
I have had my 500 for about 3 months and i love it. It is a great all around vehicle, from a playtoy to work horse to just a plain machine to ride around in. It exceeds my expectations and i give it a five star rating. I had one minor problem with the front end being out of alignment and they took care of me right away. Purchased it at TSC in Greenville, Michigan. Both Dealer and factory support team have been awesome.

Massimo MSU 500
Purchased my MSU 500 from Mission, Tx TSC, use it for work here on our citrus farm. My 500 has become the family's and especially mine, it has become our favorite work vehicle. The family named it Black Max. Great handling and superior performance compared to my green & yellow UTV.. Several friends now are begging to borrow my MSU 500

Massimo MSU-500
Recently purchased MSU-500 from TSC, the price was perfect and the quality of the product is exemplary. I visited and checked out all other major ATV's & dealers in my area of south Texas. MSU-500 had most bang for the buck, overall quality, & price made good business sense, Massimo products rate 5 stars in my book. Dealer & factory support team have been the very best.

Love my snow pusher
I have had my massimo for a little over 5 months, I have over 600 miles on it, and I pushed snow all winter with it. I was very impressed with the amount of snow it will push, with the 6' plow I have on it, Never had any issues with it in anyway. I love it and I would not hesitate to get another one.

Love It.
I purchased this machine about 3 months ago from the local TSC Store. I have already put over 40 hours on the machine and it has been flawless. I adjusted the side doors so they would open and close better and that is it!. Between 4 to 5 mile runs to the store and use on the property for hauling and dragging and for fun by pulling the grandkids around on sleds this is one of the best toys I have ever purchased!!!!! Thanks for a great machine MASSIMO!!!

Fantastic Machine
I've only had the 500 for a week and I just can't say enough good things about it. I only had one small issue the horn would'nt work and Massimo called me and let me know they would be sending me a replacement part. ASAP. Can't beat customer service like that. Thanks Massimo, great machine at a phenomenal price.

Excellent Machine
I just purchased the MSU-500 from tractor supply. I made this purchase after extensive research on all the UTV brands and their costs. When you compare the workmanship, features and most importantly the $, thie choice was a no-brainer. Massimo was the winner hands down and it has performed flawlessly so far.

Many Miles
Just purchased 9/13/12, I had to change the oil within 2 week of purchase. But I did put on 200 miles. To date I have 325 Miles on it. Sweet machine, we run it in our woods but mostly back roads it sure fits the bill. Fluids have been fine I have never run it hard due to break in. I want this unit for many years. I did buy an enclosure for it because we live, the thumb of MI and winter is brutal. This machine will be pulling a trailer for wood use it for hunting ext: I love it so far. I will keep everyone informed.
