FourTrax Foreman

With the big power and torque of a 395cc engine, the Foreman is the value leader of heavy-duty 4WD ATV machines.

Features & Benefits

Engine/Drivetrain

Powerful, compact OHV air-cooled 395cc engine is longitudinally mounted to allow direct drive-shaft alignment to both front and rear wheels for reduced frictional losses.
Overhead-valve design offers a wide, easy-to-use powerband and compact engine dimensions, with light weight of 111 pounds.
Dust-resistant air intake system.
Closed crankcase vent system safeguards against engine oil contamination.
Rubber-cushion engine mounting and gear-driven counterbalancer reduce vibration.
Super-heavy-duty automatic clutch with a low, 1750-rpm engagement point for excellent driveability and towing capacity.
Five-speed transmission with reverse includes an ultra-low first gear.
Full-time four-wheel-drive.
Convenient electric starter, with auxiliary recoil starter and an internal decompression system.
Wet sump with large, 3-quart capacity.
High-flow oil cooler with cooling fan helps control engine temperatures.
Solid-state CD ignition with electronic advance for good performance and reliability.
Powerful, 310-watt AC generator.
Snorkel-type air intake system is specially designed for water crossings.
USDA-qualified spark arrester/muffler is constructed of stainless steel.

Chassis/Suspension

Simple yet rugged D-channel twin-spar design forms the two main frame members, with steel double-cradle lower frame tubes.
Maintenance-free shaft drive with limited-slip front differential routes power directly from the longitudinally mounted engine without inefficient directional changes.
Independent double-wishbone front suspension uses Showa shock absorbers to give 4.3 inches of travel.
Steel swingarm and dual Showa rear shock absorbers give 4.3 inches of travel.
Steering mechanism design features light effort and a tight turning radius of 11.5 feet.
Dual sealed front hydraulic drum brakes and sealed mechanical rear drum.
Standard over-fenders give excellent mud protection.
Tires designed especially for the Foreman feature aggressive tread patterns for excellent traction.

Additional Features

Engine design produces low emissions and meets California Air Resources Board (CARB) off-road emissions standards.
Multi-function speedometer/hourmeter features tripmeter and enhanced low-speed monitor function. The first two-thirds of the 180-degree needle-sweep registers speeds from 0-15 mph in 1-mph increments, to allow precise monitoring of vehicle speed for effective application of liquid and solid materials from spraying and spreading equipment. The remaining one-third of the sweep measures speed up to an indicated 45 mph. The hourmeter function helps to monitor use for maintenance and other record-keeping functions.
Large cargo racks front and rear allow payloads of 66 and 133 pounds respectively.
Heavy-duty trailer hitch with towing capacity of 850 pounds.
Large, lightweight plastic fuel tank with 3.2-gallon capacity.
