Round Up: Utility vehicles

First gas-powered UV from Kubota
The RTV500, powered by a 15.8-horsepower Kubota engine, is Kubota’s first gasoline-powered compact utility vehicle. The four-wheel-drive UV fits in the bed of a full-size, long-bed pickup truck for easy hauling. The RTV500 includes Kubota’s electronic fuel injection (EFI) to provide quick starts, even in severe weather, and is available in Kubota Orange and Realtree Hardwoods Camouflage.

Kawasaki Mule gets a makeover
Kawasaki’s Mule 4010 Trans4x4 Diesel now has a rugged, truck-like body style. The vehicle operates as either a four-person 4×4 or a two-person unit with an extended cargo bed. Featuring electric power steering (EPS), the Mule has a fully automatic transmission with two- or four-wheel-drive options. Winch-ready tabs are located under the front grille, and to save batteries, the EPS operates only when the engine is running.

A Gator to handle heavy-duty work
John Deere’s Gator HPX 4×4 utility vehicle is powered by a 20-horsepower four-cycle Kawasaki gasoline engine. The hydroformed steel frame provides strength for a payload and towing capacity of 1,400 pounds. Other features of the Gator HPX include enhanced 4-wheel suspension and Deere’s smooth steer technology. An automotive-style deluxe glass cab is optional for seasonal work.

Customizable tracked UV from ASV
ASV’s ST-50 is standard with rubber tracks, Posi-Track suspended undercarriage for increased traction and flotation and ROPS. The 50-horsepower UV has a 5,000-pound towing capacity and a 4,000-pound carrying capacity on the rear deck, and most tools and attachments can be mounted on the deck. The UV comes in general purpose, turf (smooth) or extreme terrain track options.

Save on fuel with electric compact utility vehicle
Club Car’s new line of electric low speed vehicles (LSV) eliminates fuel costs and reduces operating costs. Recognized as street legal in several states, the Carryall LSV line gives users more accessibility to jobsites. With a maximum speed between 20 and 25 miles per hour, the Carryall line features cab enclosures, safety belts and lighting packages with headlights, turn signals and back-up lights.
