Does anyone know anything about these machines ? My nephew is looking at one. He likes the Rhino but the dealer told him that the Bennche was the same thing only cheaper. I fear that the dealer is trying to sell my nephew a load of #$%. I have never heard of them and was wanting some feedback on the reliability and value of these. Thanks.

your on a Rhino forum with unlimited info. think if your nephew buys a knockoff he'll get this type of support. like Dennis said, if you can't afford a new, try a low mileage used Rhino. You'll be glad you did.

He seems very determined to get it. I have told him to ask the dealer for the names of current owners to see what they say about the product. I am very skeptical though. My Rhino rocks and I have never had a problem with it. I hope he doesn't get screwed.

Go to the forums or internet to check these units out, they are good but a hell of a lot cheaper, I can't buy a used 2008 rhino for under $9500. A new Bennche will cost around $8700.

I bought one of those Benche's about 4 months ago. I have a small 20 acre farm in upstate Penna. I have used the heck out of it so far and it has been great. I have used it to fix fencing, haul hay and horse feed and cut timber for the fire place. It was well worth the money. I bought the Benche 700 model. 2 forward speeds and 1 reverse. I live on a dirt road and my closest neighbor is about 1/10 of a mile away and I drive it up and down these roads without any problems. I let you know what it's like when it snows but so far so good. It was definitely worth the money with all the standard features.

Its a Chinese knock off of the Rhino, some of the parts are the same or similar, but I'd rather pay a bit more money and get something that I'm guaranteed will work and be able to get parts for in the long run. Don't fall for these knock off units you'll only regret it when things start falling apart and breaking down.

The only plus I see with the Bennche is they give you a 1 year warranty, Yamaha gives you 6 months and if anything goes wrong will try and make you pay out of pocket for it, Yamaha is the worst when it comes to honoring their terrible warranty.

I bought a 2013 Bennche Spire 800, transmission went out at 87 miles. Got it back and put about 20 miles on it and it started jumping like the belt was catching everytime I started to take off, took it back, when I got it back drove it about 10 more miles and I when I would put it in Neutral the the transmission would whinning real loud and would not go in gear, I would have to kill it and when I started it back up it would not make the whining noise and would go in gear but if I drove it more than 10 feet it would start the whinning again. Took it back again, got it back and maybe put 25 mikes on it and once u got it in gear you would have to kill it to get it out of gear. It road rougher than a tank. I would run as far away from one of these thing as you can as fast as you can, they look good but they are a POS. I sold it after 6 month with warranty left on it at a $3,000 loss and was happy to do so. Bought a Rhino 700 SE and Love it.

Bennche Owners

Bennche and Mossimo and Hisun have been on the market for awhile now. I believe Kawasaki is the only Japanese US hybrid. Everyone else has gone Japan/Chinese and Can Am is Canada which is not known for an industry standard other than hockey. I drove a Bennche and felt pretty good. Really accessible engine etc. What's the Chinese junk proof? I would not compare this product especially the Warrior 800 to a 150.00 kids quad.

just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in, I bought a 2014 Bennche 500efi bighorn new in 2014, and have never had one problem with it at almost 2000 miles, does everything I ask it to do, the wife and I do a lot of backcountry fishing and hunting with it, no issues, it hauls a ton of firewood, gravel, and beer coolers, other guys in their $25,000 Canams and Polaris can't go where I go, to big. For the money, you can't go wrong, like every other toy, maintenance is key. I did upgrade the tires, went 2 sizes bigger, all the difference. My only regret is I didn't get the 700, but very happy with mine.
