The seat isn’t deeply padded, but is
comfortable and supportive. It is wide
enough for only two, which is the number of seat belts and headrests it has.
You can unload the 250-pound-capaci-
ty dump bed from either side.
TRAILS AND WORK
While the small size can be a chal-
lenge and limits engine size and per-
formance, the Sector 250 fits between
the wheel wells of a full-size truck. We
had it in a long bed with the tailgate
closed. As long as the terrain wasn’t
too steep or rough, this should be a
fine mount for light work, recreation
or hunting that is easy to transport.
A very small and lightweight trailer
would haul this machine in the event
that no full-size truck is available. The
next step up in Hisun’s utility UTV
lineup is a 450, but it is a 4x4 that is
over 500 pounds heavier, $2500 more
expensive and is a much tighter fit in
a truck bed.
It would be nice to have a bit more
suspension travel, but we used the
Hisun on semi-maintained roads and
trails that were fairly smooth, and it
handled everything just fine. More travel would raise the center of gravity, and
as narrow as it is, that could hurt the
sure-footedness. As you would expect
for such a small machine, it is super
easy to maneuver with a tight turning
radius and nimble steering. There is no
power steering, and we didn’t miss it.
This isn’t the sort of stripped dash you would expect to find
in a budget machine running less than $5000. Note the winch
controls and the turn-signal switch.
This smallish dump bed is rated for 250 pounds of
cargo. As small as the bed is, it would need to be
fairly dense to overload that rating.
Even with a mere 229cc
for motivation, the Hisun
can zoom along pretty
well when the going is
flat. The max speed we
saw was 40 mph.
