Owner Dube says he had been playing around with ATV’s and concerned about the young people he saw riding adult machines, so about a year ago he came up with the idea of buying youth machines in bulk from China and wholesaling them directly out of the shipping containers. “The Kenai Peninsula is one of the greatest places on earth for four-wheeling. Most people can leave right from their back door and within minutes be in the wilderness, on the beach, or somewhere enjoying Alaska’s wide open spaces. However, packing the kids or putting them on big machines, or riding with them in your lap can be a problem and dangerous, now with the machines we offer the kids can come right along through the mud and sand or wherever the family is going. The machines are so light that if they get stuck you can just pick them up, throw them to the side and carry on, and the best part about these youth machines is that they are very affordable,” says Dube.

To keep the price of the machines as low as possible Dube assembles the machines himself with the help of a couple of employees and delivers them directly from the shipping containers that he parks at J-B Store & Lock on Kalifornsky Beach Rd. “We assemble and sell them ourselves right here to keep our costs down and the machines affordable for families. Our base model starts at $800 and our highest price machine is about $2,400,” says Dube. Not having a show room, North Country ATV does all their sales by appointment only and can be reached easily by calling 262-9591 in Soldotna, or 907-337-9590. “Offering a product for the kids that is safe was very important to me,” adds Dube, “All our machines have kill switches, remote starts, electric start, and governors that can be set at a crawl or wide open depending on what speed you want your kid to travel at. These machines have been designed for safety for kids and are just great for taking the family clam digging or out in the woods having fun.” North Country ATV also has carries Pit Bikes and Dirt Bikes starting with a small 70 CC beginners bike up to 200 CC Dirt Bike. For different model specifications and prices go to or call Dan Dube at 262-9591.
