In Late 2007, I received my first Hisun 700 & 500 Utvs for sale. Riders Wholesale was the first company in the USA to do product testing with these machines. To be honest at first I really wasn’t really excited. I didn’t really think the quality would be good enough to sale in the states. My attitude changed and soon as we started putting the first one together.The welds on the machine were solid and was the best I had ever seen on a Chinese import i knew something was different about these models.The assembly was very simple and all the parts lined up very nice. It came time to put gas in after the engine turned over a couple times it roared to life. After we demoed them for a few hours, I was very impressed that it handled really well and they had plenty of power. The next thing i did was rode it down to road to the local Yamaha store. They couldn’t believe it either. We compared the rhino to the wolverine and we couldn’t tell the two apart after hours of studying to two models side by side. The few differences we did find was that the Wolverine was 3 inches wider and offered more room in the cockpit for leg room. Then we tried some rhino parts and accessories to see if they would really fit and they did. We determined that about 80 percent of the stock rhino parts would work as replacements on the Wolverine.
For the next 6 months, i took it on the trail and went riding just trying my best to break this thing. I took it to the Brown Mountain ORV trails and the Brushy Mountain motor sports park and rode it in real world conditions.
One other thing we tested was to see how much the side by side would pull. My dad owns a fence company that we have had in the family since 1969 called Dixie Fence Builders. He came to me one day trying to figure out how he was going to get some heavy fencing up the side of a mountain.We put 20 rolls on a trailer with a total weight of 2,000 pounds not counting the trailer.We used both units the 500&700 they both performed flawless to transport materials for his project and now he owns a wolverine 700 and has been using it for work performing various jobs. This UTV performs on the trails comparably to any other major name brand.In short, after spending countless hours trying to find a reason not to sell them, I am sure the Wolverine 700 or 500 will take anything you throw at it.

We want to help you to make the right decisions about your riding. We want to help you choose the right unit for your skill level, assist you in making the right judgments when riding and determine the proper helmet and equipment that will keep you as safe as possible.
Remember: safety starts with the rider. Read your owner’s manual and safety materials.
Be a Responsible Rider
Riding an ATV, motorcycle, UTV and dirt bike is an exercise in responsibility to yourself, to others, to the environment and to the sport. So remember: wear a helmet, eye protection and protective clothing whenever you ride. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol, inspect your bike before riding & read your owner’s manual. Always obey local laws, use common sense, and respect the rights of others when you ride. Make sure you have a proper license when riding on public roads, and never modify your motorcycle’s exhaust system.
FOR YOUTH ATV BEGINNERS – Adjusting the Throttle Control before letting rider ride. When starting the unit up make sure that throttle control is as low as it can be tightened. The throttle control is located on the topside of the throttle on the handlebar. Loosen the nut and then tighten the screw down. Continually do this until you find the right adjustment to it’s safe enough to let your child ride. You’ll need to play with this to find the right speed.
Make sure the emergency brake is on before starting the unit. This is located on the left handlebar. Push the button in and clamp the brake before starting the unit up. To start the bike, the hand brake needs to be in a locked position anyway.
Make sure the rider is prepared to ride when the brake is released.
Tighten all bolts on wheels. Make sure wheels properly rotate.
Tighten all bolts on unit.
Make sure that handlebars, exhaust pipe, frame and other noticeable parts on bike are properly attached and bolted down.
Proper attire is warn.
These items should be warn at all times during riding.
Too many times people think they’re immune to wrecking so they’ll hop on the bike and just go. New riders are not used to the concept of using their thumb to accelerate. This causes the rider to increase acceleration and lose concentration. To avoid this, it is imperative to teach the rider how to do the following:
Show how to shut off engine with red shut off button (red button on left handlebar).
Ease into the acceleration by slowly pushing thumb throttle forward. If throttle should stick, show how to pull throttle back into neutral state.
Use right thumb to flick the throttle back into neutral.
Show rider how to “let off thumb throttle control” when rider is out of control.
Show rider how to stop with left hand brake.
Tell rider to not get distracted with adjusting helmets, boots or anything on the unit while riding or in acceleration mode. It is imperative the rider stops to adjust anything. They need to understand that by being safe to themselves and others riding, they need to be extremely careful about what they are doing is not distracting themselves.
People love riding and when they are shown the proper procedures of using their ATV, Dirt Bike, side by side, Scooter or Motorcycle, it’s a lot more fun and safe for everyone on the beaten path. That’s the Riders Wholesale way!
