Precautions for loading four-wheel ATV

Date:Jul 04, 2020


If the ATV vehicle is overloaded, or the way of loading/checking the goods is improper, it may affect the driving of the ATV vehicle, and lead to runaway or braking instability, which will cause serious impact. When shipping goods, the following precautions must be followed:

When the ATV is transporting goods, it should drive at a lower speed and reserve a larger braking distance.

Do not exceed the maximum load-bearing capacity of ATV vehicles. When determining the weight of the load on the vehicle, the weight of the driver, accessories, the load on the storage rack or the load in the cargo box, and the trailer tongue load should be considered. The total weight of these items must not exceed the maximum load-bearing capacity.

Cargo weight distribution: 1/3 of the weight is distributed on the front storage rack, and 2/3 of the weight is distributed on the rear storage rack. When driving on rough terrain or mountain roads, you should drive at a lower speed and reduce the weight of the cargo to maintain a stable driving state. Right to load goods on a storage rack will increase the possibility of overturning.

The center of gravity of the goods on the storage rack should be minimized. Because if the center of gravity is high, it will increase the center of gravity of the two cars, which will cause unstable driving conditions.

All loads should be fastened before driving. If the load is not fastened, it will cause unstable driving status, which will lead to loss of control of the vehicle.

Should be entitled to drive at a stable speed and ensure the safety of the load. If you want to ship a load that is off-center and cannot be centered, you should tighten the load and be more careful. Be sure to tie the haulage load to the design towing point of your vehicle.

Heavier loads may cause problems with braking and control. Be extremely careful when applying braking force to vehicles loaded with loads. If a terrain or situation requires reversing downhill, you should avoid driving on that terrain or situation.

When the load on the car extends beyond the sides of the storage rack, extreme care should be taken when driving. At this time, vehicle stability and maneuverability may be adversely affected, which in turn may cause a rollover.

When placing the load on the front storage rack, do not block the headlight beam.

The driving speed of ATVs shall not exceed the recommended speed.

When driving on a level ground with a load, the speed should not exceed 10 miles per hour (16 km/h). When towing loads on rough terrain or when the vehicle is turning or going up and down, the speed should not exceed five miles per hour (8 km/h).
