Grassland Hovercraft

Hov Pod Grassland Hovercraft are well suited for rolling terrains of grasses or grassland and are able to operate on this landscape without affecting natural habitat or ecology. This is important because these rich areas between forest and desert receive 10 to 30 inches of rain per year and the ecosystem is delicate. Though roots of perennial grasses usually penetrate far into the soil, there are always bare areas prone to erosion and mud, Hov Pod Grassland Hovercraft is extremely agile on these delicate landscapes and will not contribute to the erosion.

Other Vehicle’s Grassland Difficulties

For those of us who want to hop in the SUV and head for the prairie, for some driving on grass the following will be required. Hard-packed sand is a snap, but what if your tires have to take on loose, fluffy sand on a beach or in the desert? Here are some general tips to help with your sand driving.

Air out your tires

Popular Mechanics suggests keeping tire psi at 12 to 15 for loose sand driving.

Don’t be too sharp

Sharp turns on sand will cause your tires to dig in deeper, which you don’t want to do. Driving in sand should be kept as straight as possible.

Do not attempt with front-wheel drive

If you are planning to drive in sand, don’t do it with a front-wheel drive car. You’ll become stuck almost immediately.
