Ringing up well below $4,000, the value-driven MXU 300 Shaft Drive is aimed at the small utility markets of construction, farming and sportsmen with gear to haul. A liquid cooled 18 horsepower engine powers it, electric start gets things moving, shaft drive provides long-term durability and larger tires give the 300 and more ground clearance than some machines in its class. Other features include a digital and backlit display, a smooth CVT transmission, disc brakes and a front brush guard. OUR TAKE: No advanced technology, but the price is right.
