2018 John Deere Gator XUV 835
2018 John Deere Gator XUV 835 John Deere sent us a low-key invitation to see and drive his new 2018 John Deere Gator XUV and HPX models on the farm Progress Show, an event I Tractor.com for sister site. I didn’t expect much about some new colors, but I was very wrong.
The event began one hour before the opening of the exhibition grounds. Judging by the media present, many others thought of ho-hum and let us sleep. Mark Davey, Director of Marketing, has launched a PowerPoint presentation starting with the 2018 John Deere Gatopr XUV835 and XUV865. The 835 is powered by a 54 hp petrol engine with a speed of 45 + mph. The 865 is powered by a 23 horsepower diesel engine and has a top speed of 30 mph. Three trim levels are offered: E, M and R
The E trim Xuvs has only the open station and a Kipprad, a gear on the line, 15 gallons of armpits, an adjustable driver’s seat, a load of 1500 pounds and a pull of 2000 pounds. M trim Xuvs Include green and yellow, olive, camouflage and black, power steering, crane prefabricated cables’ color selection (saving four hours of installation time), completely windshield and factory HVAC option. R Trim Xuvs, a quiet, insulated cab (no open station), luxurious ceiling upholstery for better insulation, first class fabric seats, three spacious seating, heat, decoding and air conditioning, LED headlamps, and Plug-in to add back lamps and play back.
2018 John Deere Gator The HPX615E and HPX815E updated the shaping and were designed for heavier applications, powered by a 615 petrol engine and an 815 diesel engine. Both are heavy and have a cargo box with 16.3 cubic feet with removable edges, a single-hand truck-like tailgate, 20 integrated ties, and can easily fit into a flatbed configuration. Loading capacity 1,000 lbs, towing capacity 1,300 lbs and load capacity 1,400 lbs. Ground clearance is 6.0 inches and 4WD standard. The maximum speed is 25 miles.
We started with a gasoline-powered 2018 John Deere Gator XUV835 and immediately estimated the changes to the operator cockpit. The adjustable driver’s seat was a lot on the road and together with the tilt steering for a nice, customizable cockpit. The backseat was fixed but comfortable, although chances are the next itineration will have a recline/adjustment. The shifter’s shift to the line was a major improvement over the 825i/855d floor position, which was also necessary for three wide seating areas. The Bodenratchende Park Brake is now a Ratschensitz pedal with a release just below the steering wheel. A security feature that Davey mentioned in his presentation was also noticed – the addition of a small aluminum-elevated function that prevents the middle passenger from accidentally stepping on the accelerator.
Other features we noticed were the windshield that can be fully opened or locked in a cracked-open position, side windows that roll completely down, doors that feature automotive quality, cup holders, glove box and Digital hyphen, which even has an automobile style indicator for an unfastened seatbelt. The launch of the 49.6 cubic centimeter large three-cylinder, the dual-overhead cam engine on a cool Midwest-morning was a non-event with the EFI, which provides immediate start and a smooth idling. John Deere evaluates the engine to deliver 54 hp at 6000 rpm with a torque power of 47 lb-ft at 3200 rpm.
From the driver’s line to the narrow first corner, the power steering felt communicative, although it required some effort when we patched the wheel from lock to lock. To hit the first rock pile while navigating a second curve, everything felt tight. The CVT transmission, the engine at the peak moment, the front a-arm suspension with 7.9 “Voyage and the rear IRS with 9.1 ” of the ride and a swivel rod that dampened the shock nicely, accelerated from the 180 and into the second and third pile of rocks. On the longest straight (b) The digital speedometer touched briefly 40 before it had to stand on the brakes when the fourth heap of rock was nested. The braking was controlled, straight and with good pedal feeling.
The flea flickering jogging and rods, which followed, tried the suspension, but it was pedal to the metal around the left bender to the largest heap of rock on the track, where we got a little bit of airtime before we left it and the (c) immediately screwing up, where we ma naged 34 mph Before you really stand on the binders, skip in and over the last heap of rock. Then it went through the eat and back to the paddock for the subsequent laps.
2018 John Deere Gator XUV 835
When you XUV865 into a 2018 John Deere Gator and explored the track, the diesel was definitely slower, but with low speed reserves calling for more challenging terrain. In the short test track, we could not find any real difference between high and low range, by introducing ourselves with the diesel power only for the ridiculously steep slopes. Climbing into the previous generation 825i/855d, the ergonomics, albeit the time span beautiful, felt definitely outdated. The slider on the floor required access, the parking brake a range, and the fixed steering angle not nearly as comfortable as the angles found on the new generation Xuvs.
