Utility vehicles have become increasingly popular in in-house grounds departments at institutional and commercial facilities. While the vehicles might look like glorified golf carts to some, they offer great versatility to grounds departments.
Workers use them to transport equipment, supplies and people. They enable departments to perform a range of tasks, reduce manual labor, and increase efficiency. Departments use utility vehicles in part because they reduce the amount of time and effort that crews spend carrying around tools and equipment. The operator allows the machine to do the heavy lifting, and supervisors don’t have to worry about the equipment being too heavy to carry, thus reducing the chances of mistakes and injuries due to operator fatigue.
