Regardless of where you go, there are Side x Sides hard at work or play. What started years ago as simple utility vehicles, such as Kawasaki’s Mule, was quickly adapted by sportsman as Polaris introduced the Ranger, and then Yamaha jumped on the sport aspect with their Rhino. Today there are models of every size and for every imaginable use. For manufacturers already in the powersports business, it made sense to introduce another product line for their dealers and customers. While other brands gobbled up sales, the question was always: when would Honda bring out a Side x Side of their own?

Seizmik Develops RTV RAC System for Kubota

Wish a ladder rack system existed for your UTV? The RAC System for the Kubota RTV900/1100 is just that. It expands carrying capacity & provides unmatched organization of tools & cargo. The system starts with either a Full or Half RAC, which is a sturdy structure that bolts to the cargo bed. Backpack, cooler, string trimmer, cord, hose, & long tool handle holders simply attach to the RAC providing a secure place holding place instead of having those items just sliding & banging around against each other loose in the bed. Several steel baskets can be used for holding chainsaws, gas cans, toolboxes, tools or just about anything else. Perfect for pro ground crews, nurseries, municipalities or any vehicles needing to carry different types of tools & equipment in specific configurations. The vehicle becomes a mobile tool shed and workbench. Facilities will see significant improvements in team productivity with more time in the field, less trips to and from shop, and the vehicle itself being transformed to an efficient work station. Gear is separated from cargo and the dump bed still dumps. Choose the right tool for the right job. Learn more at www.seizmik.com or contact your Kubota dealer.

We’ll admit that the first time we headed out onto the trail riding double on an ATV was a little strange. For years we had been one of the guardians of safe ATVing, and riding with a passenger was one of the Cardinal Sins, sure to lead to destruction and damnation. The trouble was, since the first ATV rolled into the first ride area, undoubtedly a friend, buddy, or girlfriend wanted to ride along regardless of the lack of seat, foot pegs, or handholds.

Few companies have build 500,000 of any product, but recently John Deere reached a milestone when the 500,000th Gator Utility Vehicle rolled off the end of the Horicon, Wisconsin line. No UTV is more closely associated with American agriculture than the John Deere Gator, and wherever we go there are Gators doing just about every job on the farm. They’ve become a modern day pack mule, extra hand, cattle herding Border collie, draft horse, and pickup all in one green and yellow package.
