Highly maneuverable, relatively quiet and able to traverse some of the roughest terrain around, ATVs have been popular with both recreational/outdoor riders and farm/industrial users for many years and for many of the same reasons. The fact that ATVs are also fun to ride is, of course, the most compelling reason for recreational riders to purchase them, and also undoubtedly a well cloaked motive behind many farm/industrial sales. "The more weight you put on this vehicle affects its handling. And that’s not just the weight of the vehicle; that includes the fluids you put into it, the weight of the officer the duty gear which can weigh anywhere from 15 to 20 pounds rescue and other operations equipment, which can range anywhere from another 30 to 100 pounds, based upon the operation that the officer’s going to be in.
