Hustler Turf Enters Utility Vehicle Market
For the first-time, Hustler Turf Equipment has entered the utility vehicle market with the Maximum Duty Vehicle (MDV).
The MDV is designed with farmers and ranchers in mind and as a true workhorse. Designed for heavy-duty applications, the MDV features LeveLift technology, a patented, labor-saving cargo box that allows users to lift up to 750 pounds from the ground and dump material from any point in its arc of motion.
With a simple flip of a switch, the LeveLift brings the cargo box up, back, and down, enabling loading at ground level or at any point. Once loaded, the LeveLift brings the cargo box back up and into position on the MDV. With minimum time and effort, the cargo is loaded and on its way.
“The introduction of the MDV with LeveLift bed technology speaks to the innovation and quality craftsmanship inherent in the DNA of Hustler Turf,” says Adam Mullet, vice president of sales and marketing in North America. “Hustler Turf is leading the industry by creating a maximum duty UTV category. It offers customers a machine that works hard in addition to getting them from point A to point B.”
The vehicle is available in a standard bed model or with LeveLift. The all-wheel drive MDV runs at a top speed of 37 miles per hour and the vehicle has a total load capacity of up to 1685* pounds. A wide range of options and accessories are available.
The base vehicle is more durable, more comfortable and easier to maintain than similar UTVs. The Hustler MDV features a Kohler Diesel engine fed by a 14-gallon fuel tank. Users can be confident maneuvering in and out of tight spaces thanks to the CVT transmission and precise controllability offered by power steering.
“After nearly a decade of research and development, we’re ecstatic the Hustler MDV is rolling off of the production line,” says Mullet.
