# How Much Does An ATV Weigh?

**Things to Know About the Weight of an ATV**

The weight of an ATV might be a crucial consideration in determining which ATV to purchase. The most outstanding reason is to make sure you have reliable means of transporting the ATV.

Is it light enough to fit your trailer or your truck’s bed? Do you need to acquire a truck you can transport using your small SUV? These important questions depend on an ATV’s weight.

However, it is not the only reason why you should care about an ATV’s weight.

Ensure you have the capability to lift the front or back of your ATV or, if necessary, push it up an incline. You might not want to be tied to an 850-pound machine if you are 120 pounds.

There is a significant difference between 200 and 850 pounds rolling over you. If you are going to be riding in areas where you could roll your ATV. The weight of the ATV will also, in some situations, influence how sharply you can turn and how much control you have.

## How Much Does An ATV Weigh?

ATV’s weight is broken down into curb weight and dry weight. Many manufacturers fail to mention the ATV’s total dry weight. They use a term known as wet weight or curb weight, which essentially implies the same thing.

Curb weight, also known as wet weight, is the weight of the ATV.

At the same time, all fluids are present and in their proper containers, as opposed to entirely dry weight, which refers to the ATV being empty of all fluids (coolant, oil, gas, braking fluid, among others).

Common devices are included in curb weight, though neither passengers nor luggage is.

ATVs range in weight from 220 pounds – 1170 pounds when totally dry. The ATV’s dry weight is its weight without any cargo, liquids, or people on board.

A utility ATV and a recreational ATV both weigh around 700 pounds on average. An ATV’s weight is mostly influenced by the size of its engine.

Finding the ideal ATV depends on a number of factors, including weight, measurements, and engine power. Learn about and understand these variables prior to purchasing an ATV.

So relax, loosen up, and enjoy learning about ATV weights.

Let’s explore the weight of ATVs with different sizes of engines.

Once more, an anomaly in the form of the incredibly light Yamaha Blaster, which weighs only 250 pounds, throws off the average. The Polaris Saw Tooth topped the charts with a weight of 425 pounds, while the majority of the other 200cc ATVs are in the upper 300s or lower 400s.

## Wrap-up

An ATV’s weight has an impact on its cargo capacity. For instance, when traveling on a long journey, you may want to bring some cargo with you. The load capacity, however, is unique to your class and model.

The heavier your ATV is, the more load it can carry. The user manuals for each product offer information about capacity restrictions. The stability, structure, and operation of your ATV could be damaged if you exceed the weight limit. If you are looking for an ATV that can haul cargo, choose the heavier models.
