When to use Low range?

Hello all

I'm new to the Kawi line and am not sure when you all use low range. With my other Yamaha atv's the only time I ever used low was when hauling something heavy. Now with my Teryx i realize its almost double the weight so should I be using low more often? I realize heavy hauling or real sticky/thick mud but are there times when I should use it in trail riding?

Thanks.
Marc

I use low when I know I won't be going over 15-20 mph for any sustained time periods, steep hill climbs, and any slow technical driving.

I highly recommend anytime you are running under 25 for any length of time use low and don't ease on the gas. Step on it and go
