attachments designed to match the
needs of a very diverse range of use.

have all of the capability of the work
vehicles in terms of payload, towing
ability and attachment versatility, but
also come with higher performance
characteristics,” said Kevin Lund,
product marketing manager, utility vehicles. “These include greater
horsepower, improved under-frame
clearance, higher top speeds (up
to 44 mph) and independent four-wheel suspension.
“John Deere has a vehicle to fit the
needs of the ag industry whether it’s for
spot spraying, surveying, hauling seed
to the field, herding cattle or running
lunch out to the combine operators.”
According to Lund, the utility vehi-
cles’ applications are as diverse as
the customers who use them. He
cited a customer in Florida with a 40
gal. sprayer mounted to a Gator for
spot-spraying orange groves; apple
orchards in Washington state that use
the vehicle for carting produce and
hauling trailers; pen livestock produc-
ers all across the country who use
them to haul feed and supplements;
and larger farming operations that
use them to transport people, tools
and other goods from one part of their
holdings to the next.
