What Makes a Great Side-by-Side Battery?
Though many states are not sure how best to classify these machines with category terms such as Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle (ROV), Utility Task Vehicle (UTV) or Recreational Utility Vehicle (RUV), the one thing that has remained the same is they need a powerful battery! When selecting a UTV battery you not only want to note the CCA, but perhaps more importantly, you will want to find a battery with high amp hours (Ah). Stop and consider all the extra lights, power ports and gadgets we add to these things. A one dimensional battery will no longer cut it, you need to think in terms of overall Power Balance when replacing your side by side battery.
History of the ROV, RUV, UTV, SxS
If we do not include the Amphibious ATVs from the 1960's and 70's then credit for the first Side By Side should go to Kawasaki with the introduction of the MULE in 1988. Other manufacturers soon followed with familiar models such as the John Deere Gator or the Polaris Ranger. These early versions were primarily used in commercial trade as utility vehicles. Yamaha with the introduction of the Rhino in 2004, changed the SxS industry forever ushering in the idea of sport utility. Discover today why selecting the right UTV battery really matters.
