Looking for That Special Gift This Year? Get Something the Whole Family Not Only Wants But Needs

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 14:46:53 CST

Looking for That Special Gift This Year? Get Something the Whole Family Not Only Wants But Needs There are few farmers or ranchers out there that do not wish to have either an ATV or a side-by-side utility vehicle on their place, if they don’t already own one. These modern tools have proven themselves invaluable to farmers and outdoorsmen alike over the last few decades. Radio Oklahoma Network’s Carson Horn, associate farm director, spoke recently with Steve Nessel, ATV and side-by-side vehicle marketing manager for the Yamaha Motor Corporation, about some of the products currently being offered.

“We’ve got our 2017 Viking utility vehicle and 2017 Kodiak 700 ATV here,” Nessel said. “These vehicles are built specifically for outdoorsmen, farmers and ranchers, to be versatile tools in the field to help you stay productive and get work done.”

On the farm or ranch, there are many dirty jobs to be done. As a utility vehicle, these products are built to allow farmers to do the things they need to around their property, efficiently and safely, without the added worry of damaging your ride.

“That’s kind of a point I make a lot is these are off-road vehicles,” Nessel said. “Your truck, while valuable for sure still around the farm, is an on-road vehicle, so if you need to get to the far reaches of your place, and we’re talking about 4-wheel drive terrain, the Viking was built specifically for that.”

Nessel insists the Viking is meant to take the beating from rough terrain that maybe your truck doesn’t want to, or “you” don’t want your truck to. He says, really, it’s a cost benefit over time. While many farmers jump to the excuse that these vehicles are too expensive, Nessel asks if they have considered the product’s durability over the long haul, and the money they would save from depreciation and wearing out their trucks.

“They’re going to pay for themselves quicker than you think,” Nessel said, adding that with proper attention to preventative maintenance, your Yamaha utility vehicle could potentially last decades. “Yamaha has a reputation for reliable durability.”

With Christmas coming up, Nessel says to visit your local Yamaha dealer to see what special incentives they can give, because they want to do business with you and will work to get you your own Yamaha utility vehicle.
