No belt issues? Are they chain drive or sommething?
They're CVTs with a wet clutch. But honestly unless you're running big power or big tires almost all the CVTs are good these days and there is so many parts and kits to set them up you can usually get them to work for what you need quite efficiently.
I've seen more blown diffs than belts on quads

If you maintain your machine, clean out all the mud and crap.
Stay away from mud giant mud hole.
They will all work fine
But find a dealer close to you. Always nice if you need a part or warranty work
Good luck ..

East of the Rockies and west of the rest.
I have around 2000km on a 2020 grizzly. It's a Cow Checker/Farm quad. So far so good. It does everything from being a flash light to pulling the post pounder through places you wouldn't want to drive the truck or tractor. I didn't like that you had to use your left hand brake to unlock the shifter that is also on the left side. First time with a calf on my lap trying to get it into reverse and it doesn't lock any more lol, but still functions fine.

I have always ran Grizzly's. I am on my third one now. I would stay away from the old 660's as they had overheating issues. However, 2007 and later models the fuel injected Grizzlies are very good. Super dependable. The Yamahas do not have as much torque as all the competitors twin cylinder machines, but they still have tons of power. Buy one and upgrade the tires to a decent mud tire and you will be on your way.

just a suggestion, if your buds ride twin cylinder atv's you will never be as fast, or have as much power on a single cylinder yamaha or suzuki. both the suzuki and yamaha are good atv' with good tires and winch. maintenance will be your best friend, oil changes, grease etc are key!

Unless you’re riding roads and tinned all the time this is a not an issue.
I ride with 420 Honda’s,450 Kodiak’s, 750 Brute Forces, Can-Am 650/800’s and a few of us have Grizzly 700’s. Nobody has a problem keeping up with each other in the bush and as soon as you hit the mud holes skill usually exceeds machine size.

They all have their own little issues but the only one that was never able to get diagnosed and fixed was the overheating Brute Force. He traded it in on a new Grizzly 700 for this year.

Again not a big quad guy here, but the smaller ones like a 400 are pretty fun too, cause they are so light.

Those 1000cc canams look like a handful.

Size of a small car lol

Grizzly here too I have a 14 700 5000 kms no major problems just brakes rear bushings wheel bearings and fluid changes I too am still on the original belt. My ridding buddies all have 13/14 Can-Am 1000 all have had major issues with them and yea out on the trail no problem keeping up only time they leave me behind is on a gravel road. Used to have a couple of Polaris Scramblers for my wife back in the day a 400 two stroke and a 500 four stroke both were unreliable don’t know how many times we towed them back to camp bought her a Kodiak 450 now just regular maintenance and I don’t miss wrenching on them after every time we went riding.

They are huge but the power ant torque in the new ones make them pretty nimble and alot of fun. I had a 2013 Outlander 1000 XTP and wished i never would have traded it off. Only thing i did to it was put a Dirt Digger clutch kit in it because i didnt like the stock clutching. Thing was a wheelie machine after that lol

Any of the major brands will suit you well if you don’t abuse it and maintain it. Just pick the colour you like
