ATV winch
  • Wear your protective ATV gear—helmet, goggles, gloves, and boots.
  • Use a winch to load the ATV whenever you can. Many accidents and even deaths have been caused by driving an ATV up a too-steep ramp.
  • Use a high-quality ramp with a rated load capacity that can withstand the combined weight of the ATV and its rider.
  • Attach the ramp securely to the trailer or pickup using straps or chains. If you have separate left and right ramps, space them properly for your ATV.
  • Approach the ramp in first gear so that you can climb it easily. Engage four-wheel drive in low gear, if applicable.
  • Ride straight up the ramp. It’s easy to drop a wheel off the side of a narrow ramp.
