John Deere Gator: Your Ultimate Utility Car

In the year 1992, it replaced the 3 or 5 wheel John Deere AMT, introduced in the year 1987.The Gator is powered by a powerful 341CC engine that you can see in lawn mowers, and it also has an optional diesel engine that you see in utility tractors and Deere Mowers. All the engines are coupled to a CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) employing a conical pulley system and a belt.
These vehicles don’t require any kind of gear shift or clutch to operate. There are several 3rd party attachments available for Gator, which again includes gun racks and snow plows. The recommended maximum payload capacity is around 600lbs. The total size of the AMT is designed in such a way that one can load a pickup truck very easily.

It has got rugged and heavy duty design, which is easy to maintain and fix on the site. This utility machine serves different jobs and the overall weight is surprisingly light, but it requires 2 average people to lift.
