Tips and guides to help you find the right atv

Here's some tips and guides on how to find the right atv for your job

1. What is an ATV?

An ATV or All Terrain Vehicle is a small four-wheeled powered vehicle with off-roading capabilities. ATVs are also often called quadbikes, three-wheelers, four-tracks, four-wheelers or quadricycles. iSeekplant has a nationwide network of ATV suppliers. Here’s your guide to hiring an ATV; including type and brand comparisons, licensing information and how to rent off iSeekplant.com.au.

 

2. What are the different types of ATVs?

The three main types of ATVs are Sports ATVs, Utility ATVs and Youth ATVs. Sports ATVs are used for competition and recreation, much like dirt-biking and off-roading. Youth ATVs are similar but smaller and easier to control for minors, are generally low-maintenance, and come in sizes and capabilities fit for 6-year-olds through to 16-year-olds. Utility ATVs or UTVs are generally low-speed off-roaders with varying capabilities. Utility ATVs can be broken down into three main subgroups: Sidekick UTVs, Ranger UTVs and Bobcat UTVs. Sidekick and Ranger UTVs are similar in their main purpose is carrying people and things, both having boots. But a Sidekick holds one or two people with a loader on the back and a Ranger carries four people with a loader on the back. Bobcat UTVs look like mini-diggers, and can come with wheels or tracks, but always have a digger on the front. You can find almost as many types of these as you can find types of diggers.

 

3. Can you rent ATVs?

4. Do you need a licence to hire an ATV?

It depends on what state you’re in. The legislated requirements for quad bike use for each state are as follows: Queensland – No need to have a licence to drive the ATV, but if you’re driving it on a public road it needs to be conditionally registered for that purpose. You and all passengers also need to wear an approved motorcycle helmet at all times while on the ATV. New South Wales – Class “C” drivers licence required. If you’re driving on a public road, the ATV needs to be conditionally registered for that purpose. On public roads, your speed limit is 50km/h or less. Victoria – No need to have a licence to drive the ATV, but if you’re driving it on a public road it needs to be registered by VicRoads and covered by the Transport Accident Commission. You and all passengers also need to wear an approved motorcycle helmet at all times while on the ATV. Western Australia – Farm Use Quad Bike Licence required. If you’re driving on a public road, you need to be conditionally licenced for that purpose. You and all passengers also need to wear an approved motorcycle helmet at all times while on the ATV. On public roads, your speed limit is 35km/h or less. South Australia – No licence required. Follow all the normal road rules. Northern Territory – Class “C” or “R” licence required. If you’re driving on a public road, the ATV needs to be conditionally registered for that purpose. You and all passengers need to wear an approved motorcycle helmet at all times while on the ATV. Tasmania – Class “C” licence required. You and all passengers also need to wear an approved motorcycle helmet at all times while on the ATV. On public roads, your speed limit is 40km/h or less. ACT – If you’re driving on public roads, you need non-standard vehicle registration.

 

5. What are the best ATV brands?

The ‘Big Six’ in the world of ATVs are Can-Am, Honda, Kawasaki, Polaris, Suzuki and Yamaha. But recently a seventh big brand has emerged from North America, called Arctic Cat. Arctic Cat is the best in class value and features independent rear suspension and youth-friendly models. Suzuki shares he title of best in sports/utility with Can-Am. Suzuki is known for it’s useful metal racks for storage, it’s breaks designed for precision and it’s steel build, whereas Can-Am is praised for it’s powerful engines, high-tech front and unique design. Polaris is the toughest in its class because of it’s low centre of gravity, powerful engine and sheer weight. Yamaha is your sports ATV. It’s got high top speeds, fast acceleration, wide suspension and manoeuvrability like no other brand. If you’re looking for safety, Honda is your best bet. Honda offers a user-friendly SportClutch transmission – but can be operated without a clutch – solid suspension and comfortable handlebars for a smooth and comfortable ride.
