ATV three-point linkage on sale

ATVS cannot be far off being accorded full – at least compact – tractor status. As they become more powerful, the more they become all-purpose machines rather than pure run-arounds.

Latest attachment from ATV Direct is an electronically controlled three-point linkage designed for all makes of four-wheel drive quad bike over 300cc.

Powered from the bike battery, from which it draws 2amps, the linkage is electronically raised and lowered and will lift up to 200kg, depending on the machine and counterbalancing, which can be in the form of a front, rack-mounted spot sprayer. Prices from £695. &#42
