Jiangsu Linhai Power Machinery Corporation, formerly known as Linhai, is a Chinese company founded in 1956 which describes itself as the oldest small engine manufacturer in the country. At this time, the company has no less than 1600 employees, its factories being able to design and roll out no less than 3 million crankshafts per year, 1.5 million engines and 750,000 motorcycles and scooters in a period of 12 months.Getting back to the vehicles manufactured by Linhai, the company was mostly focused on ATVs and quads, most of them manufactured in the recent period. For instance, the CUV 300, the Joker 50, the Muddy LC7 Racing and the Worker 300 were all produced between 2002 and 2008.These vehicles come with pretty advanced features, no matter if we're talking about the engines or about the other capabilities. For example, the Joker 50 is a small quad equipped with a single cylinder, four stroke, SOHC engine which a displacement of 49.5 cmc. The engine is able to develop 4 horsepower. However, beside the engine, the vehicle also comes with multiple notable features, just like the other quads manufactured by the company. The disc-based front and rear brakes are the living proof that Linhai attempt to create high-quality quads.In comparison with Joker, the Muddy LC7 Racing is a more powerful vehicle, being equipped with a single cylinder, four stroke engine which comes with liquid cooling system and a displacement of 275cmc. This engine is able to produce 26 horsepower. Moreover, the ATV comes with ventilated discs on both front and rear brake as well as with a chain final drive. This Linhai vehicle was first produced in 2002 but the Chinese company kept it in production until this year so it shouldn't be a problem to purchase such an ATV.
