The rancher is underpowered compared to the Foreman. If you plan on doing utility work, the rancher has no bottom end at all.

Actually it does have bottom end. I was dragging trees and things out of the woods and the bottom end squats down when u give it throttle when its underload.

Eee..I dont know which to vote for because both the Rancher and Foreman have done good in the mud from what I've seen.. I think Ranchers are pretty good though with like say DirtDevils. Had those on my Recon. Really good muddin tires..anyway..

My Rancher 400At had enough power to pull my full sized xtra cab and 16 ft dual axle tailer out of the sand after I buried the truck up to the axle. Seems like good power to me ,but I'm sure the 500 has more.

ROFL. Obviously this poster has never riden a Rancher. I tow trailer loads of topsoil, rocks, and compost weighing in at 1200# with mine and it doesn't even grunt.

If you want to do serious mud, I would steer away from the 400AT. The lack of low range will not pull the big lug tires you'll need for the mud.

As for the Foreman vs Rancher, it'd be a toss up. While the Foreman has more power, the Rancher is smaller, lighter, and more nimble.

For mudding, the Foreman gets the nod.
