6×6 ATV Models For Work, Hunting & Trail Riding

6×6 ATVs are bigger, tougher and stronger than the average 4×4. They have increased load capacity, better towing ability plus excellent traction due the addition of the two extra tires.

Ideal For:

  • Hunting
  • Snow Travel
  • Extreme Conditions
  • Plowing
  • Heavy Work
  • Towing
  • Carrying A Passenger

But, not all manufacturers offer 6x6s.

Of all the big players in the ATV market, only Polaris and Can Am currently have 6×6 ATVs. Yamaha, Kawasaki, CF Moto, Kymco and Honda don’t offer 6×6 in their current lineups.
