John Deere is rolling out an AutoTrac™ Ready option for select full-size Gator Utility Vehicles to provide agricultural producers and ranchers with more versatility on the job. To further boost efficiency and reduce fatigue, customers can also order a 4640 Universal Display and StarFire™ 7000 Receiver for their Gator.
"John Deere is enabling the productivity gains farmers have seen while using AutoTrac technology on their tractors and integrating it into a smaller, more nimble machine – a Gator Utility Vehicle," said Maureen McCormack, go-to-market manager for Gator Utility Vehicles at John Deere.
AutoTrac Ready Gator Utility Vehicles are now available straight from the factory, and they come equipped with the wiring harness and necessary brackets for John Deere technology. With the AutoTrac-assisted steering system, users can maintain consistent, repeatable accuracy as they move across a field. The AutoTrac Ready option can be ordered on model-year John Deere 835/865 cab units, including the XUV835M HVAC, XUV835R, XUV835R Signature Edition, XUV865M HVAC, XUV865R, and the XUV865R Signature Edition.
"Farmers and ranchers can use their AutoTrac equipped Gator Utility Vehicle for precise grid sampling, spraying, and field boundary creation," McCormack added. "AutoTrac equipped Gator UVs feature a combination of functionality and versatility that help drive efficiency and productivity into everyday jobs."
Additional features that will be a part of model-year 2023 Gator Utility Vehicles include factory-installed side mirrors, a spray-in liner in the cargo box, and all-terrain radial tires on alloy wheels.
