A WORKHORSE on the farm or ranch, the John
Deere Gator UV is the official utility vehicle of
the 2018 Sunbelt Ag Expo.
Various Gator models will handle the
demands of the show, hauling booth materials
and transporting attendees to ensure that the
2018 Expo runs as smoothly as the Gator UV’s
Show workers aren’t the only ones who get
to drive a Gator UV. Customers can get behind
the wheel of the Gator XUV835 at the John
Deere ride-and-drive area, and experience the
power and performance of the newest Gator
UV in the lineup.
“The newest models in our lineup, the
XUV835 and XUV865, combine versatility,
durability, and comfort into a machine that
can increase productivity in all types of conditions,” says Mark Davey,
John Deere marketing manager. “It’s a workhorse that can tackle any
job, with features designed to save farmers time and energy.”
The 54 hp XUV835 and 23 hp XUV865 offer tight turning and
optimal weight distribution for superior off-road performance. The
XUV835 reaches speeds of over 45 mph and the XUV865 offers a top
speed of over 30 mph.
Versatility of these vehicles is furthered by compatibility with a
full range of over 90 attachments, from snow blades to winches. They
also feature a large 11 gallon fuel tank to keep the vehicle running
longer between fillups.
As the first units in the Gator family to have three-wide seating,
the XUV835 and XUV865 include an adjustable driver’s seat, ample
legroom, and tilt steering to reduce operator fatigue during long
work days in the field.
Available HVAC systems and pressurized cabs offer year-round
weather protection, providing cooler operating conditions in the
summer, and heating capabilities during harsh winters and snowy
conditions. The heating feature also defrosts the windshield, to keep
you operating efficiently. In addition, noise isolation and sound
dampening features in the cab provide a quieter experience.
The XUV835 and XUV865 also deliver sleek styling and
1,500-pound payload capacity, with a versatile, durable cargo box.
Combined with a towing capacity up to 2,000 lbs., and 16 gallons of
storage, producers can haul more in less time.
Many other Gator UV models will be supporting the Expo,
including the XUV825 and XUV855. These models offer two-person
seating, 1,000-pound cargo capacity, and plenty of power to knock
out tough jobs. In mid-size crossover models, the Gator XUV590i and
XUV590i S4 offer more affordable power, ideal for completing work
around the farm or ranch.
The XUV590i offers operators 10.5-inch ground clearance,
800-pound payload capacity, and 1,100-pound towing capacity.
The larger XUV590i S4 has four-person seating, 9.3-inch ground
clearance, 1,200-pound payload capacity, and is also capable of
towing up to 1,100 pounds.
For customers looking for the most affordable 4WD vehicles,
the John Deere Gator XUV560 and XUV560 S4 provide a great ride.
Outfitted with an ergonomic operator station, quiet V-twin engine,
independent 4-wheel suspension, 4-wheel drive, and availability of
more than 75 attachments, these Gator UV models will tackle all of
the tough jobs around the farm.
An Ag Management Solutions system (AMS) integration kit is also
available for most Gator UVs. The kit allows an operator to mount a
StarFire receiver and GreenStar display (both sold separately) to the
Gator UV to assist with boundary mapping, flagging field obstacles,
soil sampling, and more.
Most Gator XUV models are available in Realtree Hardwoods
HD Camo, olive and black, or John Deere green and yellow color
schemes. Each Gator also offers more than 75 factory and dealer-installed attachments available for customization.
