Common Uses of ATV

 The very first modern 4-wheeled ATV was launched by Suzuki in 1983. 

 Common uses include:

  • Utility ATVs
  • Sport ATVs
  • Side by Sides
  • Children's ATVs

 ATVs are commonly used in farming to bridge the advantages of trucks and tractors. Studies have actually likewise shown that ATVs might assist in the spread of invasive species.  

ATVs using tracks instead of wheels are used at France's Cap Prudhomme in Antarctica. The ignition on ATVS is set by industry requirements to be on the left side of the handlebars.  But on the best side for snowmobiles. 

Utility ATVs

Utility ATVs are used in industries such as farming and ranching where repair work, feeding and other jobs are done. They are also preferred with hunters who pass through rugged terrain, often bring heavy freight. Electric ATVs are becoming popular with hunters since they can move more silently.

They are used in a range of markets for their maneuverability and off-roading capability. These consist of:

  • Border patrol
  • Construction
  • Emergency medical services
  • Land management
  • Law enforcement
  • Military
  • Mineral exploration
  • Oil expedition
  • Pipeline transportation
  • Search and rescue
  • Small-scale forestry
  • Surveying
  • Wildland fire control

Youth ATVS

Youth ATVs are tailored towards riders with little or no previous riding experience. Kid's ATVs are generally restricted to weights that do not go beyond around 100 to 150 pounds depending upon the make and design.

Military ATVs 

6x6 Polaris Big Boss in use by the Norwegian armed force in Afghanistan. The term "ATV" was initially coined to refer to non-straddle ridden six-wheeled amphibious ATVs. These include the Jiger produced by the Jiger Corporation, the Amphicat produced by Mobility Unlimited Inc, and the Terra Tiger produced by the Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company in the mid-1960s and early 1970s. 

With the introduction of straddle ridden ATVs, the term AATV was introduced. This was to specify the original amphibious ATV category. 

Buying a used ATV

Many sellers will conceal problems with their ATV to get a much better price for them. If you look carefully you might have the ability to find the cloaked problems, however, some might come out in general discussion by a mishap.

The first thing I wish to know from any used ATV or UTV owner is the length of time have they owned the device and why are they offering it. Typical reactions consist of "I have outgrown it" or "I desire something various" and maybe even simply an easy "I need the cash."

This is common and not undesirable. But your goal is to build a little connection with the seller to ideally enable him to slip and reveal any doubtful tactics he might be placing on you.
