Utility Task/Terrain Vehicles - Working Side by Side - The Perfect Farm Hands.

Whether you call them utility task/terrain vehicles (UTVs) or side-by-sides, these compact workhorses can haul—in more ways than one. Known for their off-road performance, payload capacity and available attachments, UTVs have made themselves at home on many farms, ranches and acreages. Some new machines can even convert their beds into more passenger seating. We took a look at several of the latest UTV models from the leading manufacturers.
