Fit your ATV to haul small loads, protect you from the elements, or pick up bales.
These accessories fit most ATVs, and you won't have to limit them to work only. Pull snowmobiles or motorbikes out to trail with one of the new utility trailers from ShoreLand'r, or add a Plug-N-Play (page 68) to your ATV and bring a cooler full of food with you while you check crops.
Hauling help. ShoreLand'r Utility Trailers has about as many configurations for trailers as there are jobs to do.
Model BK1400U carries 1,400 lbs. of whatever you need. The trailer's narrow bed and low-profile tires allow it to handle rough terrain and tight off-road maneuvering. An optional lightbar kit lets you do some highway hauling and can easily be removed for loading and unloading, or for off-road work.
The working deck is 52 100 in., and stake pockets along the frame accept 2- 4-in. boards for side rails. The company also offers accessories such as a brake kit for hauling heavier loads and a tongue jack for easy hitching. Prices were not available at press time. Contact Midwest Industries Inc., Dept. FIN, Box 235, Ida Grove, IA 51445, 800/859-3028, www.shorelandr.com or circle 218.
Trick up your all-terrain. There are many products available to protect your ATV from rocks, mud and debris, but how about something to protect you from bugs, tree limbs and wind? Poly Tech Industries' new Brush Buster windshield will do just that while it adds extra storage space to your dash.

The company also has a hitch receiver that mounts to the frame of an ATV.
