Contractors use utility vehicles (or UTVs for short) for getting crews and tools to and from the jobsite. UTVs have cargo beds that help carry and dump materials like dirt. They can even take attachments like brooms and snow blades. Companies such as John Deere, Polaris and Kubota all make UTVs. They can have diesel or gas engines to make them go!
