How to Select a Well-Built UTV

Published on May 18, 2020

Utility vehicles (UTVs) are a popular means of transportation, whether it’s on a jobsite or an acreage. UTVs get you where you need to go more efficiently and comfortably than other forms of transportation. Selecting a well-built, dependable utility vehicle is the best way to ensure that it will provide you with years of service. So before you buy, take a look at the key things to consider when selecting the best UTV for your work.

Easy Access to UTV Maintenance Areas

When you compare models, confirm that routine UTV maintenance items can be easily accessed in one of three ways: through the driver’s side access panel, the passenger’s side access panel or by raising the cargo box.

Bobcat utility vehicles are designed to make maintenance faster and more convenient. With fewer grease points and easier access to coolant, air, oil and fuel filters, you can reduce time spent servicing your UTV.

On some UTV models, the seats flip forward for easy access to the oil fill, oil check, battery and alternator. Other components may be accessible by lifting the hood.

Availability of UTV Parts and Maintenance Services

As you compare utility vehicles, consider whether parts and maintenance services for your machine are readily available. How far will you have to travel to get your UTV serviced or repaired? Are the technicians who will service your utility vehicle properly trained? Finally, always ask your dealer about manufacturer warranties and what is covered.

All Bobcat utility vehicles come with the support of a worldwide network of Bobcat dealers offering industry-leading accessories and parts.

Bobcat Company has the largest dealer network in the country, with more than 600 dealers. Trained service technicians are equipped to handle all your service requirements, including engine and hydrostatic or hydraulic components.
