New John Deere Gator utility vehicle at Saltex 2017

Published:  27 September, 2017

John Deere will be introducing the restyled Gator XUV 865M utility vehicle with the company’s quietest ever cab at the Saltex 2017 show at the NEC in Birmingham, in November.

The cab also offers more room for both driver and passengers and a more efficient heating system, including a windscreen defrost feature to improve year-round productivity and comfort.

Featuring an 854cc, 23hp diesel engine, CVT transmission and power steering plus a top speed of 50kmph, the XUV 865M offers a tight turning circle and optimal weight distribution for superior off-road performance.

For extra versatility, it can be fitted with a wide range of more than 90 attachments, from snow blades to winches, and has a large 42-litre fuel tank to keep the vehicle running longer between fill-ups.

The adjustable driver’s seat can accommodate three people for off-road use. This latest model also features ample legroom and a tiltable steering wheel to help reduce driver fatigue during long working days.

The versatile and durable cargo box has a load capacity of 454kg, while towing capacity has been increased by a third to 907kg and total payload capacity is 680kg.
