What To Do When Your ATV Gets Stuck

What To Do When Your ATV Gets Stuck

Ride an ATV for an extended period of time and you will eventually bury it, requiring more than a heave-ho push.

Most of these guys pictured were looking for trouble. If you more than 4" of sno or even drifting snow get the artic cat out. I ride alone most of the time because i'm usually not in a hurry to get there and back. I try to avoid trouble, even with a winch you gotta have something to hook it to. I've been stuck and had to walk out, very humbling but is also something you don't forget very soon.

I had a co-worker (who since retired) that when he bought a new bike about five years ago, was asked by the salesperson if he wanted the snorkel kit? He asked "why would I want that?"

"So you can run through water with it."

"I already have a f@#$%n' boat for that!"

@JM1993, I have a 250 2WD, I get stuck almost every second ride, I am starting to get good at getting unstuck, but I learned a few tricks to try next as well...

Another reason to follow rule #10 (Get a hose and spray out the underside of your bike) is that you might pick up a noxious PLANT, and we ALREADY have ENOUGH grief with those out here!!

Never use a tow strap with hooks on them. Use 'D' rings. Stay off line of the winch cable. A person I know of was killed when his winch cable broke and the backlash got him.
