The popularity of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) in Canada is a recent phenomenon. The first ATVs were basically tricycles equipped with balloon tires. Their low-pressure, oversize tires allowed them to run on soft and irregular terrain. This report concerns the forestry use of ATVs. Because of the stability and traction required in forestry, the four-wheel units (especially with four-wheel-drive) are more appropriate than the three wheel ones. For this reason, only four-wheel ATVs are discussed in this report.
