Are you running any sort of lift kit or something? I just broke my first axle the other day after 2 years of hard riding. My rhino is stock height with 26 inch Bighorns. My buddy bought his rhino the same time as me and rides the same way and places and he has a 3 inch lift and 26 inch Terra cross tires. He has been through 6 axles, so I blame lift kits.

I broke a few axles in the past - stepped up to Summers Bros 300M and Gear One baskets - no breakage after that - and I drive the **** out of mine.

Which axles do you keep breaking? Are they fronts, rears, or both? If it just the rears or fronts check your diff mount and make sure it hasn't broken or bent.

how many stock axles have you broke? The stock axles are usually pretty good if you have stock a-arms and such.

Im betting your superatv ones are probably the issue, but just my opinion.

Axels dont cost that much. Go with a better brand. You get what you pay for. I know for a fact if you buy Lone Star axels and break one they will replace no questions ask.

What type of riding are you doing when it breaks? Are you really bound up when it let's loose, or are you jumping things. Also as I mentioned before check that your rear diff has not broken a mount, or bent one. Additionally if you do not have a rear diff brace look into adding one as the larger tires and increased engine power will further stress that area. Now if you have already looked into that then please ignore. When the axle breaks where is it breaking? Is it the axle shaft or the CV?
