Putting UVs and ATVs to the test: Bobcat
Draft and stability tests
Our engineers performed draft and stability tests on each of the vehicles. The average speed, draft and horsepower test measured from the speed of the front wheel of the towed vehicle. Tipping tested with full fuel tanks and no driver, passengers or cargo.
Tipping Angles (degrees)
Left Tip Angle (2): 35 degrees
Right Tip Angle (3): 35 degrees
Rear Tip Angle (4): 43 degrees
Front Tip Angle (4): 47 degrees
Average speed, draft, and horsepower (5)
Average speed (6): 6.3 mph
Average draft (7): 610 lbs.
Average draft horsepower (8): 10.3
Peak draft: 1,260 lbs.
Notes: (1) Tipping tested with full fuel tanks and no driver, passengers, or cargo (2) Driver's side down (3) Passenger side down (4) Calculated values (5) Draft limited by vehicle traction (6) Measured from the speed of the front wheel of the towed vehicle (7) Measured from a load cell in the tow line and smoothed by averaging over 1/2-second intervals with a running average (8) Calculated from speed and draft values
