All-Terrain Vehicles go where you need to work

Imagine a racehorse with its native speed, but with the strength and stamina of a mule—no, an Ox—the sure-footedness of a mountain goat, but was as comfortable to ride on as a broken-in trail horse. Now give it an engine, four wheels, and the latest technology.

Welcome to the modern farm racehorse/mule/ox/goat/comfort rider. But today, we just call these four-wheelers ATVs, All-Terrain Vehicles.

When it’s just you that you rely on to get the jobs done around the acreage, the ability to hop on an ATV and set off across the field when you need to is unparalleled. Add to that the ability to go just about anywhere in spite of mud, snow, rocks, or sand thanks to available four-wheel drive and designed-in sure-footedness, and it’s easier to see the ATV Advantage.

Add in on-board storage or carrying capacity and a hitch to give you the ability to bring tools along or spray for weeds, and the ATV Advantage becomes real.

So let’s go one more and point out they can go like scat and a blast to drive.

Advantage: ATVs.
