ATV Fenders Keep Mud At Bay
Robert Dunton, Topeka, Ill., says his ATV is the perfect vehicle for checking irrigation equipment but he grew tired of avoiding the mud thrown around by the wheels. He decided to solve the problem by making fenders out of used rubber conveyor belting.
He made brackets to support the rubber belting so they extend out much wider and further back than the original equipment. The fenders hang down behind the front wheels and in front of the rear wheels.
Dunton says they've completely solved his mud problem and he can cross any ground without getting dirty.
He also added a rear view mirror to the ATV by mounting a round mirror to an upright mounted on the front left fender.
