Not all projects have paved roads. Pipeline construction, solar farming, university grounds keeping, raising cattle ó these are all unique industries and applications, but they all share a common need for long-distance, off-road transportation. For such all-terrain trucking, a utility vehicle (or UTV for short) is one of the most versatile tools for professional contractors. Similar to their ATV cousins, UTVs are made for off-road applications, but differ in that they can take at least two to six passengers and have a bed for cargo, supplies or spoils.
UTVs are specially engineered to traverse both inhospitable, off-road jobsites and finely-manicured, hard-to-access public areas. Itís a machine utilized by a diverse crowd of owners and operators -- from farmers and foremen to hunters and off-road enthusiasts.
Because of their many novice operators, fast speeds and all-terrain jobsites, drivers need to be extra safe when operating a utility vehicle. In this Bobcat Co. training video below, youíll learn basic safety rules and instructions for operating utility vehicles. Although this video contains many valuable guidelines, your operation and maintenance manual is your primary guide for safe operation and maintenance.
