Can-Am ORVs aren’t just for recreation

Life on the farm is hard work.

It’s demanding and without reprieve. Farmers do more in a day than the people they produce for will ever know or give them credit for.

“If you need to take it out for the day to do a little bit of fencing or take salt or anything that’s way back out into the bush, I think it’s very comfortable for that.” Cattle rancher Sean LaBrie

Can-Am gets that.

They also understand what farmers need are tools that can enhance their lives and professions.

Just ask a farmer

Alberta’s Darcy Steinman has owned a number of other utility vehicles, but they fell short of his expectations.

“They just don’t stand up to the Can-Am. When you get a chance, drive one. Then drive a few of the other ones, and you’ll go, ‘I see what people are talking about,'” he says.
His 1,000-cc Commander routinely pulls a 2,000-pound trailer loaded with feed for his horses, and he marvels it can even tow his 6,000-pound boat to another part of his property.
Steinman also makes heavy use of the dump box for cleaning out his horse paddocks.

“It can take a lot of weight. It really works well,” he says. “It’s amazing what you can carry in that thing.”

“It handles the job,” says Alberta cattle rancher Sean LaBrie about easily hauling hundreds of pounds worth of fenceposts and hay with the Defender. “Towing that around wasn’t a problem.”

 

Big jobs or small jobs, Can-Am utility vehicles come through.

“If you need to take it out for the day to do a little bit of fencing or take salt or anything that’s way back out into the bush, I think it’s very comfortable for that,” says LaBrie.
“We take pride in the fact that no matter the task at hand, there’s a Can-Am machine to get the job done,” says Can-Am.

Just try one

Steinman remembers his neighbour dropping in to have a look at his new machine. When he asked about its performance, Steinman threw him the keys. The next week, he bought one for himself.

In Manitoba, Alexander Macleod finds his 800-cc Defender has no trouble rising to the challenge of towing an 800-pound, 50-gallon weed sprayer. “I’d recommend one of these to anybody.”

He says the Can-Am warranty can’t be beat either. “That three-year bumper-to-bumper warrantee is no gimmick, it’s for real.” When an issue came up, Can-Am remedied it immediately. Not so with his last utility vehicle.  “To be honest with you, if they would’ve written it on toilet paper, I could’ve at least used it.”
