What is an ATV?
“ATV” is short for all-terrain vehicle. Designed for going off-road, ATVs, also known as "quads" or "four wheelers", typically have four or six wheels, a straddle seating position and handlebars for steering. Rough paths, narrow trails, deep mud and steep inclines are usual terrain for many ATV riders.
These vehicles are built to handle it all with low-pressure tires, tough suspension, the ability to maneuver through tight turns and increase to high speeds. ATVs have proven very useful in both work and recreational environments. They are capable of towing big loads for heavy-duty farm work and provide all the thrills you might expect when you let loose with it in nature. These versatile vehicles are available in a variety of models and can be customized to your liking.
What is a Side-by-Side vehicle or UTV?
A side-by-side vehicle (SSV) is an off-road vehicle recognized by its 4-to-6 wheel design, its unique side-by-side bucket seat set-up (hence its name), and its steering-wheel and foot-pedal driving system. It often comes with similar features to a car like a roll bar or cage, and wind protection that creates an enclosed look. Designed with a sturdy protective exterior, these vehicles are a top choice for recreational adventuring outdoors; however, they have proven to be equally dependable when on the job. That’s why they’re also referred to as UTVs (utility task vehicles), which are technically designed for accomplishing work tasks.
Today, farmers and hunters make the most of a side-by-side’s ability to haul big loads and carry impressive amounts of cargo from one destination to the next. With models like the Maverick performance-first vehicle, the Traxter capable vehicle and the maverick Trail and Sport vehicle for work and play, as well as the many modifications available for them, finding a SSV that fits your lifestyle is a cinch.
