FIN ATV Rodeo
Seven farmers tested seven ATVs for 1½ days in the 2008 Farm Industry News ATV Rodeo. They drove the vehicles through water and over rugged terrain. They loaded the ATVs with heavy bags and then tested them on the hills and hitched them to logs to test their pulling strength. How did the field of new ATVs stack up? You can see a preview of the results now on FIN TV. Then view the final scores, story and videos on October 1.
