The side-by-side utility vehicle market just got a new Bad Boy on the block as the mower company launched its Intimidator XD4 side-by-side utility vehicle at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky. last week.
Available in diesel (3 cylinder 1.0L, 26 horsepower Kohler), gas (750 cc 25 hp. Kohler) and electric, (48 Volt battery pack) the Intimidator XD4 provides a 1,700-pound payload, an all welded steel frame, and the biggest wheels and brakes of any side-by-side utility vehicle on the farm.
Six-ply 27-inch tires on 14-inch aluminum allow rims backed by 10.25-inch disk brakes provide the foundation for the heavy haulers and an all-wheel emergency brake plus a locking gear in the transmission keep the vehicle in check.
A four-wheel independent suspension system has extra-long dual A-arms and fully adjustable shocks.
The new machine, capable of 35 miles per hour, comes in orange, Olive Drab, midnight metallic black or Mossy Oak camo.
Prices start at $9,999 for the gasoline model, $12,999 for the electric, and $13,000 for the diesel.
