These are generally called ATVs in agriculture, quad bikes in leisure use and all-terrain cycles (ATCs) in forestry. b) sit-in machines, usually with a steering wheel, where the driver sits in a conventional seat and there is generally seating for one or more passengers. These are called ATVs in both agriculture and forestry.
