John Deere has updated its Gator range, with the addition of two new models.
Currently made up of four models, John Deere has updated its Gator range for 2018 with the addition of two new models.
New 835M is petrol powered and churns out 54hp, while 865M gets a 23hp oil-fired motor. Both models feature a two-speed CVT with options of 50 or 60kph top speed. To offer increased range, fuel tank size has been upped to 42-litres from the 28-litre tank used on existing models.
Along with an increase in fuel tank size, towing capacity has made a big jump on both models up to 907kg, and tipping cargo box can take up to 454kg.
While standard fitment is a front and rear screen with safety nets for simplicity, John Deere has developed a new sealed cab, which the firm says uses sound dampening components to reduce noise levels in the cab.
Available from early 2018, all XUV models will be road homologated as standard. Retail price for new 835M (petrol) is £15,287, and 865M (diesel) comes in at £15,965. By comparison, JD’s widely popular 855 diesel model retails at £15,745.
