Utility vehicles (UTV) or side-by-side vehicles come just at the right size. They’re bigger than an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) but smaller than similar vehicles like a jeep. But before you make a visit to the nearest UTV dealer, consider the ways you can use a UTV.
It Can Carry a Heavier Load
First, UTVs can carry more people. Built for two people, they provide a larger room for movement and seating. Second, a UTV has a bigger dumping rear cargo load compared to ATVs. This storage platform, even without the use of a trailer, can carry a sizeable amount of load like chunks of wood and smaller equipment. Average bed capacity (riders plus rear load) is between 200 and 450 lbs. Hitch capacity (trailer weight) is between 1,300 and 1,500 lbs.
It Can Be Used for Varied Tasks
A UTV can be used under many conditions. It can be used for forestry or agricultural transport. The rear platform is wide and secure enough to fit farm load that can be transported without any issues. A UTV can also be used for hauling heavier objects (i.e. warehouse supplies) that ATVs cannot. Another common use of UTVs is in sports and recreation. Many sporty models take advantage of the hefty towing capacity of UTVs, i.e. from 1,400-1,500 pounds.
It is Customizable for Specific Purposes
Unlike other vehicles, UTVs are highly customizable. UTV owners can have their vehicles customized to their own liking. Designs can be used to improve visual appeal while accessories like LED lighting and heaters can be tapped for added use like what one would do to a customized car. Other upgrades can be done on the tires, wheels, and other parts to enhance the vehicle’s performance.
UTVs are very versatile vehicles suitable for many tasks and customizable like cars. If you are buying a UTV, you can expect a good investment.
