The winner will receive a new 2016 Viking VI Ranch Edition SxS with Electric Power Steering (EPS). Entries are now being accepted at www.yamahaoutdoors.com/ranchhand.

The 2016 Viking VI Ranch Edition brings an all-new level of comfort and convenience to tough, off-road ranch work and farm chores. With a 600-pound cargo bed rating, 1,500 pound towing capacity, seating for six full-size occupants and plenty of space for hauling feed, tools and equipment, it’s the ultimate ranch hand on four wheels. 

“We created this sweepstakes to show our continued support and appreciation for ranchers, farmers and everyone who works in U.S. agriculture,” said Steve Nessl, marketing manager for Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group. “We know they’re typically working seven days a week and expect a SxS vehicle to be as hardworking and reliable as they are. The Viking VI Ranch Edition accomplishes this and combines Yamaha’s rugged durability with high-end styling and features to match.”

Highlights of the Viking VI Ranch Edition SxS include high-quality copper metallic painted bodywork, color-matched interior and sun top, and silver cast aluminum wheels. Also included is a center-mounted rearview mirror, mud flaps, overfenders, a heavy duty front brush guard and unique Ranch Edition badging. Total approximate retail value of the vehicle is $15,499. Like all of Yamaha’s SxSs and full-size ATVs, the Viking VI Ranch Edition is assembled in the USA at Yamaha’s factory in Newnan, Georgia for worldwide distribution.
