          I bet a Bruno Turny would do the trick gettin' a guy (or girl) up and into a UTV.

            I dont think that that would work very well. Because don't you have to you their seat for it? I can be in and out of my Teryx really quick. Quicker than it takes me to get in my car.

              I don't know for sure. But I've seen a few pictures of vehicles that had the Turny installed with vehicle factory seats. I'm sure there's a way to rig them up.

              Yeah, I've watched your videos. You're a strong bugger. I'm jealous. I just have weak little twiggy arms compared to you.

                  haha... I read you dude. Honestly, I bet you can rig up something using your own ideas real easy. Really, all the seat has to do is swing out and down. I already have an idea in my head. And it would work too good.

                    I go the other way. Instead of bringing the 4-wheeler down to your level, I take ME up to the level of the seat and then transfer. My golfcart is as high as a Ranger so in the past I've transfered into it while my chair is sitting on the edge of the trailer that I use to transport the GC. A buddy backs the GC off the trailer, I roll up onto the trailer, he moves the ramps out of the way and he pulls the GC up to the end of the trailer. My chair seat is exactly the same height as the GC seat at this point and it's a straight transfer.

                    I also have transfered off of my van lift into the GC. I get my buddy to pull the GC up in front of the liftramp at a slight angle. I lower the lift to the right height, angle my chair on the lift, then make the transfer. A transfer board or a boost from your bud and you're in.

                    Both of these methods require another person being there to move the GC. Ideally it would be best to design something so you could do it alone.

                        No. I'm really greedy like that.

                        jk. I was trying to figured out a way to explain it yesterday. The only thing I can relate it to is how a 3 ton picker kind of unfolds on the back of a 1 ton truck. Basically an arm that swings out and drops the seat down to ground level, if that's ones choice of height but would be able to stop before that level. With a simple wired toggle switch. And would all work with a 12volt ram.

                          This would be a pretty easy transfer

                              I love this post. I am a C6/7 quad for 20 years now. I have modified a Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot, and then moved to the RZR in '08. what a blast to ride. Much easier to get into. I built a mobile platform to make it a straight transfer. I added suspension seats and 5 point harnesses. Once strapped in it is such a rush to ride the mountains of Eastern Ohio. The bike is very safe. I owned it a month and rolled it several times down the side of a mountain. It was completely rebuilt from new frame up. Actually it only bent the aframe tab for the rear wheel and the dealer insisted on the new frame. But they made it like new again and I did not get a scratch. I climbed right back on my steel horse without hesitation. I built my own hand controls and they work excellent. I love this bike so much I'm actually looking to upgrade to the 2012 model. So my '08 may be for sale soon. Ready to ride.
