Driving a John Deere Gator XUV 825i around Sand Mountain Nevada. The Gator is built primarily for work with 16.4 cu. ft. cargo box with 1000 lbs capacity, 1500 lbs towing and 1400 payload. The 1600 lbs. Gator is heavy duty for sure, but with the new three cylinder, 50 HP engine and completely re-designed front and rear independent suspension system, it can crossover to the sport market as well.
