The company’s first entry into the utility vehicle or side-by-side category
Hustler Turf Equipment, a Hesston, Kansas-based manufacturer of commercial and residential turf equipment, has unveiled its Maximum Duty Vehicle. The MDV signifies the company’s first entry into the utility vehicle or side-by-side category. Designed for heavy-duty applications, the MDV features LeveLift, a 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 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 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. 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 1,685 pounds.
