Electric ATV: Clean Extreme Fun

A really great way to have fun for the whole family is riding an electric ATV. They are great to ride, especially on flat ground. Keep in mind that going too fast can be dangerous especially if you lose control of the ATV. Here are some great things that you should know about purchasing and using an electric ATV.

ATV Uses

Electric ATVs are not only a great way to carry small items from one place to another they also are good for the environment. They also cut down on noise pollution. When choosing an electric ATV, you are going to want to make sure it is 100% electric, it has great speed, it can go a long distance before having to plugging it in to restore the battery and check the torque in the specifications. Torque is the power the engine has to move the wheels. The higher the torque. the more powerful your ATV will be. An average ATV will have about 150 pounds of torque. An ATV with this specification will run 4 to 5 hours without needing a recharge.

Reduces Pollution

Unlike a gas powered ATV, the electric ATV does not emit any pollution into the air. In fact, a normal sized gas-powered ATV actually emits close to 6 times the gas emissions as compared to a regular sized family sedan. So, not only are gas powered ATVs emission emitting vehicles, but they are actually worse than the cars that most people drive along the roadway.

Costs of an ATV

You can purchase an electric ATV at prices that are much more affordable than they were years ago. A small ATV starts around $700. You can purchase much more expensive models ranging from $5,000 to $25,000. The price differences are determined by the types of bells and whistles, the amount of power and the overall size of the vehicle.

Typical Speeds

A typical ATV can get up to anywhere between 25 and 35 miles an hour. It is perfect speed and power for moving around a farm or a dirt road behind your home. It is also perfect for transporting small items from one place to the other. An ATV is a great choice not only when you are looking to have some fun off the roadways, but when you are looking to have something that will help you get from one point in your backyard to the other.

Meet Safety Needs

Some equipment that provide you with some safety are a helmet which is approved by the safety council, leather gloves that fit well to your hands and goggles that protect your eyes from dust or objects that might fly up into the air.

Riding responsibly is also important.  You should definitely not ride on private property that is not your own.  Do not even attempt to drive the ATV if you have had no experience behind the wheel of any traveling vehicle.  And, probably the most important thing, do not drive an ATV under the influence of alcohol or drugs as  this could cause a serious accident where someone could get hurt badly.
