Many UTV drivers include suspension seats amongst their “must haves.” Take a look to see exactly how do suspension seats work and why you need them in your UTV.
UTVs are made all over the world but the largest manufacturers have plants in the United States, Mexico, Japan, and China. Several American based companies do not manufacture their own UTVs and many are outsourced to China for the entire vehicle, or for the parts.
Jacking up a UTV or ATV is all about the right balance and stability. Using a good quality floor jack to lift up the frame and a set of jack stands to stabilize it is how to properly lift your ride.
ATVs and UTVs don't have alternators. In fact, they use what is called a magneto system where magnets embedded on the flywheel pass over wire coils or stator to create an electrical current to power your vehicle.
UTVs can go from around $1000 used to upwards of $30,000 for the newest and best UTVs around that ate fully loaded. You can expect to pay $10,000-$20,000 for any decent UTV with great options.
The Can-Am Maverick X3 has a few versions that have a factory horsepower of 172 making this the UTV with the most horsepower on the market currently. The Polaris RZR XP 4 Turbo S is right behind it with 168 horsepower.
UTVs can hold anywhere from 50 pounds to 2000 pounds depending on the model and it is crucial to understand the max weight you can carry. Things like handling and control are affected by a UTV that is overweight.
A UTV can weigh anywhere from 350 pounds to around 1900 pounds depending on the size. The average weight of over 130 models is 1550 pounds. Youth UTVs are on the lower side at around 450 pounds.
A UTV will fit in a trailer but the majority of the models I researched are more than 60 inches wide and longer than 120 inches. This requires a trailer of at least 6 feet by 12 feet since the most popular models will not fit any smaller trailers.
