Modern Day Plowhorse

UTVs introduced creature comforts to remote area exploring and outdoor chores of all descriptions

One of the ubiquitous pieces of equipment for those who love the outdoors is the Utility Task Vehicle, or UTV. The rise in popularity of side-by-sides is predictable given the range of usefulness they provide. They differ from ATVs in offering greater payload, stability and rollover protection.

These vehicles introduced creature comforts to remote area exploring and outdoor chores of all descriptions. Whether you're moving downed trees, hauling out big game or plowing driveways or fields, they truly represent the modern day plowhorse.

They have become especially important for preparing food plots, as they fill the need for someone who is preparing the ground, but doesn't quite need a tractor. UTVs serve as utility players throughout the year to get you nearly anywhere you need to go without punishing all your body parts. If horses could talk, it's a safe bet they'd advise you get a UTV.
