The Best John Deere Gator for You and Your Autumn Activities Thumbnail image

Let’s face a hard fact: Minnesota summers are too short. Hot, muggy weekends spent near your favorite lake or river transition unexpectedly to the Minnesota State Fair, a plethora of autumn responsibilities, and pumpkin spice lattes in the blink of an eye. We often bite off more than we can chew during autumn, and our personal and professional well being can suffer as a result. There’s a lot to do, and unfortunately, we’re not getting any younger. While it’s impossible to bargain with Mother Nature’s seasonal changes, it IS possible to lighten your burden — and frankly, have an awesome time — by investing in a trusted John Deere Gator utility vehicle. This line of utility vehicles offers everything you need to get the most out of the autumn months. Read on for more on the best John Deere Gator for autumn activities.

Two John Deere Gator lines creating lots of buzz this autumn, the XUV835R, and XUV835M lines, are sure to make life easier for you. First, let’s talk utility. These models come equipped with a powerful 54 HorsePower 812 cc 4-cycle engine, on-demand four-wheel drive, power steering, and durable yet sleek cargo boxes with an easy to drop-down tailgate, which makes it much easier to load and unload heavy materials. But that’s not all. The 835R model’s cab has an open, accessible design that offers clear lines of sight and a streamlined dashboard. Conversely, the 835R model boasts a fully-enclosed cab, perfect for people wanting added muscle and general protection from the elements.

Don’t think for a second that this utility detracts from the Gator’s comfort! Honestly, you won’t find a comfier, more enjoyable utility vehicle on the market. Both models comfortably seat three people with plenty of legroom. Both have dual front and rear suspension, providing a smooth ride for your favorite Midwestern activities. While the 835M model has an open-air cab, the 835R has a fully enclosed HVAC cab that seals you from dust and noise while also boasting an updated, extra comfortable interior with cloth seats. 

So, whether you’re cleaning up fall leaves, heading out to attack commercial landscaping, logging, or foresting jobs, or looking for an unmatched (and fun!) driving experience, the John Deere XUV835M and XUV835R Gator Utility Vehicles help you with it all. Both models have their benefits. Contact Minnesota Equipment today to compare these vehicles and learn more about how a Gator can help you out this autumn.
