With summer just around the corner and camping season in full effect, now is a great time to take a look at some off-road utility vehicles, ATV’s and side-by-sides in BC. Utility vehicles can be used for a variety of applications including:
- Just for Fun!
Lots of ranch work doesn’t require a full-size pickup. Often you may be working in areas that a traditional road vehicle wouldn’t be able to access. This is where a compact off-road utility vehicle can be more useful, while still offering the power and performance needed to get the job done.
Off-road utility vehicles, ATV’s and side-by-sides in BC come in all shapes and sizes. Some are designed to carry passengers and carry light cargo, while others are heavy and can carry large payloads. Here are some questions to consider when looking for a utility vehicle
What is the job description?
Are you looking to carry heavy cargo such as wood or stone around your property? Or perhaps you are looking for more of a hunting vehicle that can handle more unforgiving terrain. Choose the right machine for your application.
What is the terrain like?
If you are planning on using your machine on steep hilly terrain, consider how steep an incline your machine can handle. What degree or percentage grade can the machine handle when navigating a side hill? Every machine is different in this regard.
What type of support or warranty is offered?
How easy is it to get parts for your machine? What happens if you suffer a breakdown and what does the warranty cover? Also the availability of technical support can also be a huge buying decision depending on your application.
