How Do You Use an ATV on a Farm?

From plows that were pulled by oxen, and then horses to the huge commercial tractors of today, farm tools have come a long way. Modern farms are well-oiled machines that need to run efficiently and smoothly, utilizing economies of scale, in order to survive and thrive in the modern world. Thus, gone are the days when all you needed on your farm was a tractor. Now, in addition to at least one tractor, work trucks, front-end loader, a baler, a rotary tiller, and an ATV, or an all-terrain vehicle.

UTV Engine Rebuilds is an electric motor repair shop that specializes in fixing your UTV and ATV engines. From rebuilding a Polaris RZR 800 engine to fixing a Yamaha Rhino, we work on all brands of UTVs and ATVs. In this blog post, we’ll take an in-depth look at the many uses of an ATV on a farm.

Transporting the Little Things

There is a lot of activity on a farm, from moving farm tools from the garden to the shed to picking up twine and rocks in the fields. You need a smaller, more maneuverable machine that is easy to get in and out of and is quick. Whether you just need to feed your horses in the morning or you need to snow plow your driveway, the uses of an ATV and a UTV are endless on around the farm.

Herding Cows

We’ve all seen the old westerns where cows would be moved across the country for slaughter. The cowboys, however, rode horses. While this was all well and good and horses work well with cows, saddling horses and riding horses (not to mention the constant care horses require) is a lot of work. Thus, when you need to move cows from one pasture to another, an ATV is your best bet. Cows will obey you, guaranteed.

Hauling Wood

When it’s cold outside and you need to replenish your wood supply, no one really wants to go out and get it. However, if you have an ATV on the farm, you can quickly hop in, ride to the firewood pile, load up, drive back, and unload — all within minutes. This keeps you from getting cold, too!


Like all equipment, UTVs and ATVs break down. So when your ATV or UTV breaks down and you are unsure what the problem is, give us a call. UTV Engine Rebuilds can ask you a series of questions to determine if we do suspect it’s an engine problem. If we suspect so, we’ll advise you to ship your ATV engine to us. At our engine rebuild shop, we have all of the UTV parts on hand to fix your engine and ship it back to you. Then, all you have to do is add fluids, install, and you’re ready to go. We offer a six-month warranty on our rebuilt engines. If your much-needed farm ATV breaks down, don’t delay. Call us today!
