Received my 835M today from Sloan Equipment in Effingham Illinois. Phil and Jeff from the dealer brought it to me. The dealership was great to work with. Would highly recommend if you need JD equipment.
Hated to see my 2014 Kubota X900 go, but wanted to try something different.
I would not say anything bad about the Kubota, is served me well. The Gator is just a different kind of UTV.
Kubota slow, Gator fast (54 hp in Gator would be the difference. Gator Gas, Kubota diesel)
Refinements in the Gator is first class, heat, AC, and defrosters. Took a little spin in it today on a rainy afternoon, it was nice. The tires on the Gator are kind of loud, but still quieter than Kubota.
Biggest thing for me to get use to in the drivetrain. In the kubota, you could stop get out and walk around while not taking it out of gear, the kubota wouldn't move. On the Gator you need to put it in neutral and put on the parking brake if you get out. Do any UTV's have "park".
One last thing, in the picture you can see the boss looking for his seat!!!!!!
Well this if my first day with the new vehicle. Very pleased so far.
