John Deere’s “Gator” utility vehicle family is growing, as the company introduces the XUV590i and XUV590i S4 Crossover. Deere says the machines are designed for landscape contractors who desire performance, comfort and customization.
Equipped with a twin-cylinder engine and independent four-wheel suspension, the XUV590i can be used with more than 75 different attachments. John Deere says the vehicle’s performance and work capabilities are unmatched in the midsize class.
“The XUV590i and XUV590i S4 four-passenger models were designed to get more chores checked off your to-do list, in a more comfortable setting,” said Mark Davey, John Deere marketing manager for Gator utility vehicles. “Professional landscape contractors can move around the jobsite faster with a top speed of over 45 miles per hour thanks to quick acceleration powered by a 586-cc, 32-horsepower, liquid-cooled inline twin-cylinder gasoline engine.”
The XUV590i offers operators minimum ground clearance of 10.5 inches, an 800-pound load capacity and 1,100 pounds of towing capacity.
The XUV590i S4, meanwhile, has a 9.3-inch minimum ground clearance, 1,200-pound load capacity and is also capable of towing up to 1,100 pounds.
The Gator XUV590i and XUV590i S4 also come standard with an 875-watt, 65-ampere alternator to run auxiliary attachments such as lights, winches and sprayers.
John Deere says drivers and passengers alike will appreciate the vehicles’ low noise and vibration levels. These benefits are achieved by isolating the powertrain and utilizing sound-dampening material around the engine and CVT intakes.
Both the Gator XUV590i and XUV590i S4 have a 7.4-gallon fuel tank.
