About All Terrain Vehicles

Aug 17, 2007
The all terrain vehicles are small motorized vehicles devised especially for off-road usage. These hardy vehicles are designed to take on difficult terrains are becoming increasingly popular nowadays. It may be mentioned that motorcycles, jeeps - land rovers and similar other vehicles capable of off road usage are available too but the all terrain vehicles are specialized to especially take over all kinds of rough terrain. The all terrain vehicles or ATVs as they are called are used for pleasure purpose, for hunting and for work or travel on off road sites. The ATVs are also called 4 wheelers or quads. However, some models of ATVs also have 6 or 8 wheels. The all terrain vehicles come in a variety of makes, models and sizes.

Types of ATVs and their usage

All terrain vehicles may be very basic with skid steering, balloon tires and no suspension. Again there are sophisticated models too featuring track conversion systems for use on a variety of terrain conditions for all seasons. Using these you can get around just any terrain and at any time of the year braving all odds. Besides, it also enables carrying out a number of activities effectively in punishing conditions which were hitherto unthinkable.

The utility models of ATVs are appropriate for rangeland projects. The four by four units of ATVs provides good grip over rugged terrain while automatic transmission simplifies operation. Again, the two by four ATV units with 250-300 cc four stroke engines are easier to maneuver over long periods of operations at slow speeds like while spraying.

Things to remember while on ATVs

The ATVs promise you fun-filled joyous rides. Yet it is advisable to avoid excess speed, difficult terrain and steep slopes to whatever extent possible. This is to be especially noted in case extra equipment is loaded on the ATV unit. The six or eight wheel ATVs are considered to be safer on steep slopes.

While on an all terrain vehicle remember to use the safety equipment and wear a helmet. Also never forget to carry an electric air pump and tire-plug kit with tire sealant (for helping seal tires while operating in thorn infested landscape). These will come of use in repairing flat tires in difficult uninhabited terrain. Upon duly adopting the safety measures suggested by the all terrain vehicle manufacturers you can expect to get the best maneuverability on difficult terrain by riding an all terrain vehicle of choice.
