I am looking into getting a Ural as a daily rider to get to and from work where I live in Vermont. I travel about 70 miles round trip a day, mixed interstate and backroads but the commute really could be converted to all off-interstate with only about a 5 minute time difference. The speed restriction doesn't bother me I drive old volkswagens reguarly, think a Ural is slow try 54hp and 3200lbs in a tintop vw camper... Anyway my question is more in regards to the offroad capabilties side of the Ural 2wds. I would like to be able to access all of my property easily. My land is fairly steep and very soft/often muddy. There are quite a few down trees and logs mostly all under 6" around. IF you can get in deep enough there are some rutted up old logging roads that are reasonably passable. A buddy of mine came by last weekend and we tried to get his dirtbikes back there but it was way too soft to get up the hill to get on to the logging roads. I know my neighbor gets back behind his land which is similar with a utility style ATV (I think its a grizzly or a sportsman). I was looking into getting a Quad but maybe a Patrol or Gear-up could kill two birds with one stone. I would like to be able to drag out some firewood and do other land related tasks. Wood could be cut to a reasonable size and its all downhill to the house so I think either a Ural or an ATV would likely be able to drag wood down to the road where it can be grabbed by my tractor. I would likely harvest primarily in the winter and could get the log nose up on something so as to not dig in. I have seen pictures of Russian Rigs in WW2 dragging some heavy artillery through some pretty tough terrain. Anyway bottom line question: what kind of offroad capabilties do the 2wd Urals really have?
