XUV Offers Unique Storage Capabilities and is Available in Limited Quantities
CARY, North Carolina (October 22, 2015) – John Deere is offering a new special edition Gator™ utility vehicle geared towards customers who work long days and nights, and require additional storage to keep their tools organized and easily accessible. The XUV 825i Special Edition Gator vaunts two integrated cargo tool boxes ideal for carrying tools or supplies, plus LED roof lights for added visibility.
"The Special Edition Gator was designed for those customers who require additional storage to complete the task at hand, day or night," said Mark Davey, John Deere marketing manager, Gator utility vehicles. "This model will continue to provide customers the durability and productivity they come to expect from a Gator with added amenities like integrated tool boxes and LED lights. The added storage capability makes this a distinct offering in the market, and a first for John Deere."
The two cargo boxes are situated on the driver and passenger side of the 50 hp, 812 cc XUV 825i Special Edition vehicle. The driver's side box opens from the top and has two divided compartments with a removable tray. The passenger side box opens from the side and features one open compartment. Both tool boxes boast 75 lb. capacity.
The special edition Gator also features two integrated LED roof lights designed for customers who are out early in the morning or late at night. The new LED lights use one-quarter the amps of equivalent halogen work lights and last 250 times longer.
In addition to the special edition package, the heavy-duty model is outfitted with power steering, a deluxe cargo box with polyurea liner, integrated brake and tail lights, and an Operator Protective Structure (OPS) with nets.
