Eubanks, Ellen . 2011. All-Terrain and Utility Terrain Vehicle Safety: Alternative Vehicles for Towing Trail Grading Equipment. 1123 1302P. San Dimas, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, San Dimas Technology and Development Center.

This Tech Tips is the result of a project proposal to compare various alternative vehicles for towing trail grading equipment. ATVs have been used for many years by the Forest Service and there is a perception that they are inherently dangerous and more prone to rollover than utility terrain vehicles. This project gathered rollover data as a measure of vehicle stability.

Keywords: 50-inch wide vehicles, ATV, rollover data, tilt test, tow vehicles, trail building equipment, trails, UTV
