To help around jobsites or in the field, John Deere has updated its Gator utility vehicle lineup.
The Operator Side Retention (OSR) is now standard on all Operator Protective Structure (OPS) equipped Gator utility vehicles.
A net OSR is part of the base configuration for the HPX, XUV heavy-duty and mid-duty models. Stylized poly doors can be ordered in lieu of nets for certain models.
The nets allow for one-handed operation, provide better visibility and allow for accessible ingress and egress from the utility vehicle. The stylized poly doors feature automotive style handles, color-matched panels and a 90-degree opening.
A Warn ProVantage 3,500- or 4500-pound winch increases pulling capacity up to 1,500 additional pounds over previous models.
The line of XUVs (625i, 825i, 855D) features digital display and operator station updates. The new digital display now includes a glow plug indicator light (diesel), a flashing water temperature icon and a power steering indicator (if equipped). It also includes illuminated dash switches.
An ag management solutions system (AMS) integration kit is also available for the heavy-duty models. This kit allows a customer to mount a StarFire receiver and GS display (both sold separately) to the Gator to assist with boundary mapping, flagging field obstacles and soil sampling.
The mid-duty line of XUVs (550, 550 S4) includes an improved braking system that delivers 26 percent reduction in brake pedal effort.
All Gator XUVs are available in Realtree Hardwoods HD Camo, olive and black or John Deere green and yellow color schemes. There are also more than 100 factory and dealer-installed attachments available for customization.
