Choosing The Right Utility Vehicle, Horse Property Owner Help
Product article from Bobcat©
Thinking about buying a utility vehicle? If you’ve started your search, you already know there are endless options and manufacturers to choose from. You can keep your search manageable by
answering a few simple questions that will match your needs with the perfect machine.
Are you hauling cargo or transporting people?
For fast travel speeds and a smooth ride, look for a utility vehicle with a deep-ratio, continuously
variable transmission for high torque. The transmission design eliminates the need to stop and shift
gears. For added driving comfort, look for rack-and-pinion steering to provide effortless steering,
a quick turning ratio, and a short turning radius. A 20-hp diesel engine offers adequate power for
efficient cargo hauling. Using a utility vehicle to haul cargo requires much less fuel than a pickup.
And a power cargo box will make it simple to dump materials quickly and accurately.
What soil conditions will you be working in?
Four-wheel drive vehicles get maximum traction when climbing hills or traveling over soft terrain.
Machines with automatic locking differentials offer minimal ground disturbance and cut wear and tear on tires and drive components. A vehicle with an aluminum frame offers durable strength and is
rust-proof offering long-lasting beauty.
Will you be doing your own maintenance and repairs?
Look for a vehicle that has simple access to the engine. Be sure you can easily remove the seats,
hood, and cargo box to change the engine oil, radiator coolant and brake fluid.
Will you be using attachments?
The ability to turn your machine into an all-in-one maintenance tool is one of the biggest reasons to
own a utility vehicle versus a pickup truck. Look for a utility vehicle that offers several attachments
and an easy system for changing them. Bobcat, a pioneer in the utility vehicle industry is leading the pack by offering a new attachment arm system called RapidLink. It allows you to change
attachments quickly from the comfort of the cab. Just drive up to the attachment and use a joystick to line it up. It quickly and easily locks in place with one simple pin.
"Other utility vehicles offer attachments for doing a few jobs, but none offer the opportunity to do
as many different types of tasks as the Bobcat 2300," said Brad Claus, Bobcat Company utility
vehicle product manager. "With a bucket, mower, pallet fork, snow blade and whisker push broom, it's an ideal time and labor saver for buildings and grounds maintenance work, and for
homeowners with acreages, farms, and ranches." For added towing, look for a standard 2-inch receiver hitch on the rear of the machine.
