We can think of no other vehicle as versatile as your ATV or Side x Side. They’re equally adept at work and play, they can conquer just about any type of terrain, and they’re ready to go in any weather! They’re also the perfect work buddy, ready to haul a heavy load, pull a trailer or tool behind, and never give up until the job is done. It’s just a matter of what tool you need.

We always have work to do around the yard or farm, and a couple times a year that includes grading the drive to take out the holes that somehow develop on their own for no apparent reason. In the past that has meant a rake and shovel, but it’s darn near impossible when the drive is one step below the hardness of concrete. Thankfully, we’ve finally solved that problem and now we’ve got a tool that makes it a whole lot easier.

Spring is Mother Nature’s payback for her debt of winter. The first bright, balmy days coax tulips from the wet ground, grass springs to life with the first warm rain, and invariably your neighbor fires up his old lawnmower just to be sure you didn’t forget the joys he and his Briggs & Stratton dole out for anyone in a half mile radius. No worries though; spring is the season of eternal hope when all is right with the world and many people long to plant something of their own in Mother Earth to watch it grow.
